I"ve been playing for going on 45+ years now. I started out a huge Hendrix, Clapton and Page fan. And over the years I have admired hundreds of guys most of the general public never heard of.

In the last year or so I have steadily developed a sense of awe over John Frusciante. His life has had it's ups and downs. I don't know if I would depend upon him by loaning him my car.

But his guitar playing is truly transcendent. I"m in a bar band. I'd give anything to have Flea as my bass player and let me wail away on my Start and hit those bends.

He is a monster player.

I'm a huge fan.

Agreed. To me he makes everything sound simple & easy, until you actually listen to what he's doing, or, Lord help you, try it yourself. I don't mean just his technical ability. He really adds depth to even the simplest passages.

He leaves me cold with RHCP, but his solo stuff has definite moments.

I totally love his rhythm playing, but never quite appreciated his soloing.

I wan't necessarily a JF huge fan in the past.

But what got me started on this topic is that my bar band buddies exchanged some song suggestions "How about some Chili Peppers stuff?..."

So I thought "...I"m not sure if it's Bar Band stuff...lemme watch a bunch of YTs and see if there is something out there..."

Here is what I had in mind when I posted the homage...
