I agree, he's a technically great guitarist but I don't really like the style of his music very much. Certainly not on the level of Hendrix, if you ask me, I never get any feeling from SRV's music.

He's one of the best guitarists that blues ever had the pleasure to invite in!!!I've loved the album "Live Alive" ever since I first got it and believe that alot of the "texas flood" tracks that are on there sound better than the albums versions!!!

In closing, get "Live Alive" in memory of S.R.V. and take a listen to S.R.V.'s almost 10 minute long version of "Voodoo Chile" on it...
...it's just so damn good!!!

I see what you're saying, but he's just more "soulful" (maybe not right word) than Hendrix, at least that's how I feel when hearing his music. Also, I'd probably put him above Hendrix in terms of skill, but that's just b/c I'm extremely biased when it comes to SRV.

Ya know, Hendrix gets a lot more praise for his skill, although S.R.V. can play anything that he(ndrix) ever wrote without a problem!!!

If Hendrix gets so much praise, S.R.V. should get it too!!! It's a shame how underrated Stevie is when compared with Hendrix, ya know?

Yeah, I agree that technically SRV is as good as, perhaps better than, Jimi Hendrix, but technical doesn't mean much unless you go somewhere with it. Being in many top 10 guitarists ever lists doesn't strike me as underrated, but whatever. If you ask me, SRV gets exactly what he deservese. He was a technically great guitarist, but his style is boring, and his song writing (in my opinion) sucks, just dull, long-overused blues patterns, and there's no feeling to any of it. Example: SRV could probably play anything David Gilmour ever played about three times as fast. However, Dave's solos have tons of emotion and mood in them, both of which SRV lacks. Therefore, in my opinion, David Gilmour is the better guitarist.

Honestly, I was trying not to blatantly say how much Hendrix was overrated compared to Vaughan, so, therefore I said that Vaughan was underrated compared to Hendrix, ya see?

And on your final statement-That doesn't prove to the world that he's (dave) the better guitarist because you think he shows more "emotion"!!!That's only shows that you think he's better, therefore showing your opinion only, got it?Nice talkin though, cheers!!!
