Tim Reynolds - The Ultimate Guitar Troll

I find his solos in modern DMB so generic, and purposely done. We all know he's capable of so much more.

I feel like he's mocking every guitarist ever.

    It was SpecialAgent007 who made me realize Tim Reynolds is overrated by us DMB fans. He's nowhere close to being in the top 100 all time guitarists. In fact, I've heard one claim he wasn't the best guitarist ever to come out of Charlottesville and I believe it without any names being dropped. Tim has his moments, but that's it.

    I don’t think he’s overrated, just dumbed down in modern DMB. The Jimi from live in Chicago is Tim being his bad boy self.


    His album stream is brilliant.

    Well, my position is people expect so much/too much from Tim, and feel cheated that he's not constantly one of the best 100 guitarists alive, because he probably isn't.

    It's just the feeling one gets after they watching Derek Trucks effortlessly flow through his instrument.

    All ya gotta do is hear Tim’s solo band TR3. He’s in control of how he plays.

    There is a massive difference between not being a top 100 guitarist and being a great guitarist

    His solo albums kickass. Havenít heard ĎĎem all, gunna do that 2nite. Donít like his songwriting with his band, but way Iíve heard of him solo is amazing. Search Tim Reynolds in streaming.

    Heís prob my fav guitarist when he chooses to be interesting.

    A true genius, perhaps the biggest of our time, (even more than RH imo) and a much better composer than Trey or even Zappa in my book.

    I unashamedly and happily place Tim in the same category as master guitarists such as Zappa, Robert Fripp, Allan Holdsworth, Al Di Meola, and John McLaughlin.

    He is more similar to them stylistically as opposed to Jer or Trey.

    In an alternate universe, Tim Reynolds is the several decades long guitar tech for Jeff Beck.

    No doubt brother! Tim is miles ahead of Trey and Jerry imo. I am finishing up the second solo album he put out, and it's all acoustic like Stream. I see these as more Classical offerings than Rock as they are listed in Apple.

    I hope all his solo albums are as interesting as these first two, gunna go through them all right now.

    I'm not a fan of the TR3 albums that are singer/songwriter, very bland.

    Maybe what I heard wasn't Tim when I searched TR3, this third album is full band and has singing, and he's playing electric and it's bad as fuck! Haven't finished it yet though.

    I've never heard anyone play an acoustic guitar like Tim Reynolds. I've heard many people play an electric guitar like Tim Reynolds

    You've heard something like this before?

    To be fair, this is one of few examples of him playing electric I enjoy.

    that's an all time electric Tim solo. If he played shit like that more often, I probably wouldn't think my second statement.

    He's far more interesting in his own pursuits without Dave/DMB. I'm almost positive he's dumbing himself down, much like Coffin does, and Dave is pissing me off because he lets that happen to all the great talent in his band.

    Re: Tim Reynolds - The Ultimate Guitar Troll

    Musically, DMB is still an interesting band today IMO....but if they really took advantage of Jeff and Tim, their show could be a lot more interesting.

    no doubt. Even Fonz is under utilized both in improv and songwriting. His bass parts to Crush and Dreaming Tree are both very creative and unique, and his solo before Watchtower on Listeners is epic!

    Tim is great in the 95-98 dmb era. Other than that I prefer him to be acoustic with Dave.

    Re: Tim Reynolds - The Ultimate Guitar Troll

    Put Tim on acoustic guitar for most songs and it's very hard to dislike what he does. Love TR3 and seeing him perform in his own element. As far as how he is in the mix with electric guitar has been my gripe over time. When he was more Tim/C DC I hate it but when he is more subtle like pre 2008 it is amazing. The mix 2021-Present has been much better as far as him being turned down a little.

    Love Timmy and what he brings to DMB's music, but I feel like he's lost a step as of late? Even his solos with Dave are less inspiring, flat, and a bit sloppy. He used to be absolutely flawless and a complete surgeon on guitar. Listen to the older D&T recordings compared to the most recent. It's quite noticeable. Maybe just age has effected his dexterity as a player.

    Re: Tim Reynolds - The Ultimate Guitar Troll

    Tim is one of the best acoustic players I've ever seen play. Saw TR3 in Chicago in January and he absolutely blew me away. It just doesn't transfer to the DMB electric sound for me. He's a great electric player, but I feel he sometimes tries to get too "weird" or "out there" with his sound on solos. That kind of approach works great on TR3 material, but doesn't fit into DMB songs.

    I will say that I've really enjoyed his bluesy solos on #41 recently. Keeps it simple, which I enjoy, because complicated does not always equal good.

    Wow what a take.

    He varies his solos more than anyone else in the band. But you have to actually listen.

    And he’s nowhere remotely close to Trey, lol cmon.

    He’s somethin else on acoustic tho.
