An Alternative Guitar Hero Top 10

A Listmania! list by "djfolkfinger"
 
Shoot Out The Lights
1.  Shoot Out The Lights by Richard & Linda Thompson
The list author says:
  "If ever conclusive proof was needed that RT should be regarded as highly as Beck, Clapton, Page et al, then this record is it. His taut, angular solos cut through like razor blades."
£8.68   Used & New from: £5.98
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

METERS The Meters
2.  METERS The Meters by The Meters
The list author says:
  "Jeez, them boys sure do got da fonk. Leo Nocentelli's impossibly groovy guitar lines are tight but loose and bang on the money every time."
£7.53   Used & New from: £7.20
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

The Hermit
3.  The Hermit by John Renbourn
The list author says:
  "John Renbourn blends blues, folk and classical guitar styles into a sound that is all his own. This is a sublime display of guitar playing by a true craftsman."
£13.26   Used & New from: £5.49
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Dance Dance Dance: The Best Of Chic [Us Import]
4.  Dance Dance Dance: The Best Of Chic [Us Import] by Chic
The list author says:
  "Nile Rogers and Bernard Edwards' funky classics have suffered by being so closely identified with the disco era which they came to epitomize. Listened to with fresh ears, these songs are masterpieces."
£7.88   Used & New from: £3.31
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Time (The Revelator)
5.  Time (The Revelator) by Gillian Welch
The list author says:
  "David Rawlings' sympathetic guitar accompaniments to Gillian Welch's haunting vocals are highly original and inventive. With time, he will be recognised as a master of guitar stylings."
£22.02   Used & New from: £1.94
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Hejira
6.  Hejira by Joni Mitchell
The list author says:
  "Complex open tunings form Joni's idiosyncratic sound, which found full voice on this classic album. On songs like Amelia, her playing is other-worldly and incredibly beautiful."
£7.83   Used & New from: £2.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (68 customer reviews)

The Best Of Booker T. & The MG's
7.  The Best Of Booker T. & The MG's by Booker T. & The MG's
The list author says:
  "Was there ever a finer rhythm guitarist than Steve Cropper? On this evidence, I think not. Gritty, pared-down grooves that stick in the memory like superglue."
£3.99   Used & New from: £1.00
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful
8.  Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful by Lovin Spoonful
The list author says:
  "Zal Yanovsky was one seriously underrated guitar player. On classics like Summer In The City, he lays down guitar parts that sound like nothing else heard at the time, or seldom since."
£7.86   Used & New from: £5.10
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

The Queen Is Dead
9.  The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths
The list author says:
  "Johnny Marr soaked up influences (Bert Jansch, Keith Richards, Zal Yanovsky) like a sponge (and a rusty spanner) and created this indie guitar masterpiece. The Queen Is Dead, long live the king!"
£6.57   Used & New from: £1.20
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (95 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Band
10.  The Band by The Band
The list author says:
  "Robbie Robertson eschewed guitar histrionics for understated ensemble playing which proved hugely influential on many musicians, particularly the post-Cream Eric Clapton. The songs aren't bad either!"
£7.40   Used & New from: £1.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (51 customer reviews)
