  • The happiest, most uplifting, playing style and tone?

    Who's got it? For me, Santana. But this is a new approach for me, so there may be many in this category that I've never heard of.

    Prince.

    Not surprisingly, he style is pretty close to Santana. Listen to his solo on "I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man"

      Thanks. Good call. Never heard that before. Very like Santana, that's true. It's #4 on this page: http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=I+Could+Never+Take+The+Place+Of+Your +Man&hl=en&sourceid=ie8-activity#q=prince+I+Could+Never+Take+The+Place+Of+ Your+Man&hl=en&emb=0

        I don't know about happy, but for uplifting I would choose David Gilmour.

          I love Gilmour. However Pink Floyd has always struck me as so very depressing - as if their main source of inspiration came from mental illness. Personally, I have a hard time seeing Gilmour in this context.

                The Doobie Brothers.

                +1 for Santana. Smooth is stuck in my head all the damn time.

                    For me, The Edge does the trick everytime with his signature delay and chime. The intro to Where The Streets Have No Name, especially live versions, is the definition of uplifting ! Well to me at least

                      I was thinking EJ also. Satriani can be pretty happy and uplifting, too.

                      I saw Satriani live and was very impressed. I wasn`t too sure about watching someone play guitar for a couple of hours and I`m a guitar geek. My buddy and my brother were with me and neither of them are players, so I was concerned that they would be put off by all that wanking. HA! Boy was I wrong, we all agreed that it went by too fast. Just stunning.

                      Best part was we all got to meet Joe after the show. Seemed like a good natured fellow, very nice and funny in an off-beat sort of way.

                        +1 on the Doobies...

                        ..also, Whenever Warren Haynes plugs a guitar into an amp, it's ALWAYS uplifting...

                          i would love to meet satch. seems like a cool dude, in that slightly akward sort of way. i love his note choice and the way he approaches guitar. he plays like he loves playing for the sake of playing. that's what separates him in my mind from his 'peers'; they seem to require the acceptance of others to a larger degree. he seems quite content primarily just making music.

                            Check out Hendrix - My friend (album version is best imo).. That song just always lifts me up..

                              For me Steve Hillage fits the description perfectly.
