Guitar God
I've been listening to a lot of Nels Cline recently. His guitar work is fantastic - experimental and structured at the same time. Its difficult to describe his sound only because its all over the place. But then alternately he can be calm and classical. He can really launch into a solo or pull back and create a truly rich sonic dreamscape. For those who like hippie jam band guitar work, Nels may not be appealing as there is a particular edge to his way of noodling. Indeed, his stuff is a pleasure to listen to.
