    Stevie Ray Vaughan: The Essential Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

    Jimi Hendrix: Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix


    These are both greatest hits albums, but if you want to give him a taste of the best, this is the place to start.

    Dick Dale is my fave. Period.

    Gary Hoey is also very versatile. His Ho-Ho-Hoey albums are among the best Christmas albums ever made!

    (Dick Dale and Stevie Ray Vaughn - Big Trouble 1 and 2...classic)

    Along the Watchtower by Hendrix (song, not sure of album)

    And among others...Dire Straits (Sultans of Swing)

    Hope this helps a little at least

    Dick Dale is awesome (and for those of you out there that don't know Dale is sampled in the Black Eyed Peas "Pump It"). Duane Eddy is nice but his big hit was a ripoff of a riff from Jack Scott.

    Before you even go get hinm into Heavy Metel introduce your son to Link Wray who introduced the world to the Power D Chord in his biggie "Rumble". Without the power D chord Hard Rock and Heavy Metel do not exist.

    Yes Clapton is also a good choice. You can't go wrong with the Allman Brothers. ZZ Top is fantastic and I am a big fan of Dave Edmunds and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Blues guitar isn't bad either and you can't miss with BB King and his beloved "Lucille" ( the name of his guitar).

    Jimi Hendrix
    Bon Jovi (esp the early stuff... love Richie Sambora)
    Def Leppard (esp anything off Pyromania or Hysteria)
    Queen (god bless Brian May)

    Ummmmmmm.... one of my best friends plays guitar (and he's freakin' amazing). He even taught me to play a little & got me my first electric (he works for a guitar company so he got it for practically nothing).

    Re: Help From Music Fans, Please

    The essentials have been mentioned (Hendrix, Dale, Clapton, etc)

    Steve Vai and Joe Satriani will blow away a young guitarist
    AC/DC has amazing guitar work for how simple it all is
    The Descendents are really good for a Ramones fan as are Screeching Weasel.
    And just for kicks, I'll throw in the band that give me my screen name, The Doors.

    Re: Help From Music Fans, Please

    All previous suggestion rock, dude.

    I'd add Slash's recent project Velvet Revolver. "Slither", "Set Me Free" and "Dirty Little Thing" are the top three on my iTunes play-count (with both Audioslave CDs rising fast).
    These are the games that never end.

    Re: Help From Music Fans, Please

    I can't believe nobody has mentioned RUSH yet!

    Great band. Hard to believe it's only three guys doing the whole thing. And they've been around for 30+ years without the usual rock antics (rehabs, breakups, etc.)

    The guitar work is just amazing. The early years (70's) was very much hard rock (a bit progressive, with odd-time signatures thrown in), then they polished their act (80's), and in the 90's they went back to guitar, bass and drums.

    Recommended listening:
    - 2112 (awsome epic, very riff oriented)
    - La Villa Strangiato (instrumental, lots of different riffs, great solos)
    - The whole Moving Pictures album (their best and most commercially available) - 1980.
    - The whole Vapor Trails album (very hard, lots of guitar overlaying, no solos but great guitar work throughout) - 2004.

    Check them out!

    Rush! Oh man! That's awesome, duh! I added The Doors, too. They're one of my husband's favorites, so I didn't have to search hard.

    I'm still working, but later today, I'll post the list of albums we've either got or have reserved.

    Thank you everyone!!!

    if hes into sabbath maybe the other british two, motorhead (anything on the live album everything louder than everyone else is good, especially overkill) and iron maiden (run to the hills especially!)

    modern bands maybe The Wildhearts, very good overlooked band
