I’ve had this daydream floating around my head for about 2 weeks. It’s my ideal composite musician.
I’ve been a Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits fan forever. Mark is the equal of Eric Clapton as a guitar picker, and his song writing is nearly as good as his playing. His voice is distinctive, but not on par with the other two qualities.
I’m also just now discovering the joys of Procol Harum. Gary Brooker’s voice has similar qualities to Mark Knopfler’s, but better overall IMAO.
Therefore, my composite musician would be Mark Knopfler’s picking and writing, singing with Gary Broooker’s voice.
How about you?
