Elizabeth Reed solo vs. Scuttle Buttin

I thing the guy could of used a better solo for SRV somthing like Texas Flood. But base on these two songs I would vote Duane. Not say SRV not good, but IMOER solo vs Scuttle Buttin no contest. If it was Texas Flood solo vs IMOR solo I would say SRV.

Two very different styles. While Stevie was very great at what he did, and I was lucky enough to see him 3 or 4 times...
Stevie lacked the dynamics in soloing that Duane was able to speak. SRVs music was pretty much straight ahead go from start to finish, far ahead of being just another talented blues guitarist but miles away from Duane. Duane was one of a kind.
I can take you to 25 blues clubs down here and its clone city. Stevie 1 through 25.
Alot of guys play Duane licks, but for some reason you know it ain't Duane. I can't say that for the armada of blues guitarists down here in Dallas when it comes to Stevie.
Perhaps alot of it is the band behind the guitar, a 3 backup vs the Allman orchestra.
I think we can thank Stevie for a re-look at blues during the 80s and if wouldn't have come along the blues scene nowdays probably wouldn't be as active as it is now.
In a breif thought...2 completely different styles. Different likes and tastes.

If youre comparing those two solos, then Id give it to Duane without any doubt. But if I had to compare and contrast the solo material from their entire body of work, Id go with SRV. Take a look at some of the live performances of SRV on dvd out there. Just amazing.

Nobody could play Slide like Duane.
Nobody could Bend the Strings like Stevie.
Just my Opinion.

I will openly say that Eric Clapton is my favorite guitarist of all time."Who is te best guitarist ever?" I get asked this question alot since I'm still involved in music. My reply is "The guy that built the first one". But I sure would like to hear that jam in Heaven with SRV, and Duane

Haisija, I pretty much agree with you except for that statement. I saw Stevie probably 15 times, from the time he was touring clubs to promote Texas Flood to the tour with Jeff Beck. He had dynamics it wasn't always balls to the wall. You take songs like Lenny and Rivera Paradise or one of my favorites Life Without You where he starts off slow and low and builds up to blow your head off on the last solo.

Not discounting Duane's dynamic ability either

The correct answer for you maybe. Others would say that he couldn't write a song if his life depended on it. Amazing player with very average music. Listen to any show of his and the crowd wakes up whenever he plays an old song. It is as if the crowd wakes up each time. The music has never matched the player in his case.

Beck is the "cool" answer that people always give and yet his sales don't even match the people who claim to love him.

It is similar to how millions claim to have seen Hendrix at Woodstock and yet the fields were almost empty by the time he played.

There is no greatest or best. Only different. Neither Duane or SRV could possibly play a classical piece or something by Segovia. There are so many styles and variations that you can't compare musicians. Simply a matter of taste.

Right you are, James.

And I bet Segovia couldn't have played either of these parts:

Blame Haisija.

The bottom line is they are all great. I'm sure where ever they are are, both Duane and Stevie along with plenty of others have had some awesome gigs and jams!

Long Live Fender! Long Live Gibson!

there is no such thing as a greatest guitarist - music is not a competitive sport!

Duane is my guy...no one close in what he could and did do.
Now, with that said, Stevie was nothin short of brilliant. A style straight form Albert King/Jimmy Hendrix...and made it his own. He could rip it up all to well.
So, Not one better than the other, but how can you go wrong with either one?

I love 'em both. I also love steak ... but
not every time I go out to eat. Sometimes
I like seafood. Both steak and seafood leave
me full and happy.. especially if I have ice cold
beer to wash it down.
These are my 2 fav guitarists .. I couldn't choose.

Both are great guitarist but they both come from different musical backgrounds and were both taken away from us way to early
