It's hard to pick my favourite guitarist, says Armatrading
Joan Armatrading has revealed that she finds it hard to name her all-time favourite guitar player, as she admires so many different people.
For instance, former Dire Straits electric guitar player Mark Knopfler was singled out as a particular favourite, along with folk-baroque guitarist Bert Jansch.
Armatrading also named Russell Lissack of Bloc Party as another of her first choices, partly because of the way he uses guitar effects pedals.
"A good guitarist uses that technology with taste and restraint, to extend what a guitar can do," she commented.
"It's more than just showing off."
Armatrading is perhaps best known for her hits including Love And Affection, Drop the Pilot and Me Myself And I.
She is currently hosting a five-part BBC Radio 4 programme in which she talks about some of her favourite guitarists.
However, the musician noted that a comprehensive list of those she admires the most would have gone on "for miles".Posted on 27 Jul 2009 11:56 to category : Instruments News
