Received an excellent question in the comment section and it was just too good not to share, plus I know many of you who read here aren't shy about sharing your opinions so this should give Daniel several views.
Daniel is an artist and he ask this in sincerity, I'll share my thoughts in the comments.
Hey, I have a question, and a tribute show seems related. Do you think guitarists are all that special? I don't mean this demeaningly and I don't want to bring on the wrath of the rock gods...
I'm wondering because Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even a girl in Korea I think can sound a lot like Hendrix in their playing. So is it how they perform live? Is it how they relate to other players in the band? Is it singing too, so is Kenny less impressive?
I guess it comes down to intent and authenticity.
This is only a pondering, not a conclusion. I have HUGE respect for guitarists, but like if someone painted like I do and you had trouble telling the difference?
