I Never Meta Guitar

Get it? It's a pun.

I found this comp, "I Never Meta Guitar" on Spotify... cool collection of solo guitar tracks in the style of those solo Marc Ribot albums (who is conspicuously absent from this line up).

Features Jeff Parker, Nels Cline, Scott Fields, Mick Barr, Elliott Sharp, plus a bunch of guys I never heard of that Bill Zink is probably up on. Also features Rootless' favorite guitarist of all times... Mary Halvorson. Rootless responds: "I find her cold, devoid of emotion and robot-like."

It's worth adding as a Spotify playlist. I'd also like to take this opportunity to say that Spotify is dope, absolute game changer, but it totally does not "have everything", there are lots of holes in the net, and it is not replacing my iTunes library or my vinyl, for that matter. And its search functionality kind of sucks.

I've actually heard of about half of these guys.

Pretty nice collection. I can tell it was curated by Elliot Sharp - it just has that feel.

Hahaha, I have actually made peace with Mary and now even admire her playing a bit.
