So, I'll be seeing Wilco for the second time in a year tonight...I hate to ever wish time away, but I've been looking forward to tonight for about two months. If you're not familiar with Wilco, you might remember the alt. country trio Uncle Tupelo...they later split into two bands Son Volt and Wilco....Wilco started out with an Alt. Country feel, but over the past few years the music has been shaped more by their individual playing styles and songwriting approaches as opposed to staying put in one genre. Two or three years ago they added the guitarist Nels Cline to their fold....Nels is an experimental guitar player who has his own Jazz trio in L.A. He brings a wealth of musical ability to Wilco, and while he is not a shredder in the typical rock sense, he can definitely shred IMHO. check out a couple of these clips for some good Nels Cline action.

they are pretty good. Was not aware of the Uncle Tupelo connection. Someone once gave me an Uncle Tupelo CD years ago for my birthday.
