Let's talk about our music heroes which aren't guitarists!
Which non-guitar musicians are so good at their playing you sometimes wanted to play their instrument?

I'll start with my biggest keyboard hero: Jon Lord! This guy is a wizard - whatever he plays, it sound great and groovy! His solos often outshined mr. Blackmore himself. A real virtuoso.



Mike Portnoy. I really don't need to say much about him, everybody knows everything there's to know... I can only mention that his out-of-this-world skill isn't what I like the most about him, it's his attitude and driving power. Gotta love Mike wink.gif



I have lots of others on my mind, but I want to see your inputs on this one smile.gif

How about this one, I"m guessing some folks know this performer. Akiko Suwanai? She is honestly one of the best classical violin players I"ve ever heard. Here she rips up some Paganini in the annual Tchaichovsky competition, which is sort of like running a marathon backwards with one leg and winning first place somehow. I can hear the practice in every single note, every vibrato. It's flat out impressive. Watching her made me want to learn violin.



She is a bit of a legend in classical circles. Sort of the child prodigy type. What if Yngwie was a young Japanese Gal who competed against players twice her age and experience, then crushed all of them. Sort of like that.

He is awesome! I enjoy seeing drummers as much as seeing guitar player. I don't get fun when they do a drum solo, but I really enjoy them on a musical situation. This is another rock drummer that I like:

Lynne Jackaman, singer from Saint Jude. What a freakin voice this girl has!
If you have 6 minutes spare then have a listen to the acoustic track she done backstage.

This is my favourite non guitar musician. To be honest, it's nothing to do with her ukelele playing or her singing cool.gif

Great entries here biggrin.gif

I have another one: This girl combines her violin skills with dancing and modern music. She has some GREAT stuff on the channel and is always experimenting for something new! Very exiting to listen and watch!
