I've never heard of Mark Farner. Was he a soloist or part of a band? What style? Just curious...

I know I'm probably talking "old school" for most of you, but their stuff is definitely worth a listen.
Yeah, I saw that concert in San Antonio. Probably the best concert I've ever been to. I got a kick out of watching Wes King (and Scott Dente to a lesser degree) turn and watch Phil play.

Recognizing that Tony Palacios and Dann Huff (I'm stunned to hear he's not a believer) and other have mad skills, these are the ones I like to watch/listen to:

Phil Keaggy
Kerry Livgren (Kansas, AD, solo)
Gordon Kennedy
Bob Hartman
Jill Phillips' husband (Andy...Gullahorn..is that right?)
Gabe (plays with Andrew Peterson)
Shane Barnard
Bebo Norman

Wasn't Mark Farner in Grand Funk Railroad?

I saw him with Mylon LeFevre shortly after he had become a Christian, but I really haven't heard all that much from him lately.

I think Creed lyrics are more explicitly Christian that P.O.D. lyrics.

anyways my favorite Christian guitarists...

David Crowder or Steven Curtis Chapman

its not the lyrics that make the band Christians.....heck you could get a borderline satanist band to play Shout to the Lord....does that make it ok?


anyways i love phil keaggy, jarsofclay & lincoln brewster

There's absolutely nothing wrong with old threads. Dunno how I missed this one!!! Ya'll really didn't expect me to be quiet, here, did you????

Phil Keaggy (for as short as his is, he's still head & shoulders above 99.99999% of the rest of 'em)

Dave Beegle (though as a solely instrumentalist, he's not cCm but he is a Christian)

Wes King
Scott Dente


I've heard rumors that Roger McGuinn is a Christian as well and if that's true, he'd certainly qualify.

Bob Hartman, Gordon Kennedy, Tony Palacios, and SCC are all great guitar players, but none of these guys are in the ballpark of Phil or Dave. There are great guitarists, and then there are unbelievable guitarists!

I can't say I know many styles of music Phil hasn't done. Not much rap or opera. Minimal country. Other than that, he's all over the place. Here's a list of styles and recommendations I put together a few months back. The Hendrix thing is completely unsupported (and Phil isn't fond of it to say the least). Ironicly, true or not, it works!!! I used to spent hours trying to convince people it's not true but I finally gave up.

REALLY?!?! Man... that blows my mind. I need to grab those old albums and re-initiate myself.

I definitely have to add my weight to these three from your list:
- Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek
- Phil Keaggy
- Johnny Philippides of Burlap to Cashmere (he's the one who did all their crazy guitar solos, I think)

For those who don't know much about Phil Keaggy, pick up Acoustic Sketches and Lights of Madrid-- they're entirely instrumental albums. Sketches is just him with his Jam Man. Absolutely incredible. Lights is orchestral in nature, with some unbelievable passages in there.

I'd also add Lost Dogs and Shane Barnard to the list.

Actually the guy who did all of Burlap to Cashmere's crazy solo stuff was Mike Ernest. He played all the nylon string classical/latin sounding stuff.
