I'm gonna pick Haynes too, just by a whisker. Trucks is amazing, but he borders on 'weird' with the slide sometimes. I guess I prefer Haynes more traditional style, although Trucks is the more proficient slide player for sure. But in terms of songwriting and band leading, Haynes is the boss, and he plays his ass off too with great tone..
Man, this is really hard for me. I tend to play more in the style of Haynes mostly because I don't want to re-learn the fingerboard in open E. I think I'm going to have to pick Trucks. He's so unique. Nobody sounds like that guy. And I'm really diggin the whole songlines album. It's so funky.
