But my origins are that of a disciple of James Burton, Jerry Reed, Pete Anderson and Brent Mason but I figure I’m probably the only Country guy here.
I just doubled your numbers right here! I LOVE country and play a fair chunk of it every week - Charlie Daniels, Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Wille Nelson just for starters.
So here is my new list.
El Paso - Marty Robbins (Grady Martin on guitar)
Ain't Livin' Long Like This - Emmylou Harris (Albert Lee on guitar)
Linda Ronstadt - When Will I Be Loved - I think it's Andrew Gold on multi tracked guitars
Willie Nelson - Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain (Willie Nelson on guitar)
Merle Haggard - Lonesome Fugitive - I was not able to find the credits for the original recording. We used to think (try to think, this was Fresno!!!) it was Eldon Shamblin or Roy Nichols. James Burton and Glen Campbell played on live versions.
You could do a five song list of just Glen Campbell solos without breakin' a sweat, dude was off the hook.
And I left out Vince Gill!
Country players use clean tones, much harder to fake your speed without a a distorted shred tone.
