Who is your favorite pop guitar player around town?

Maroon 5's James Valentine on the Art of Pop/Funk Guitar
Guitar Player Magazine Issue
He’s incredible. I would say he’s an inspiration, but what
he inspires me to do is throw all my guitars into the L.A. River. While I
may never be able to play like him, it’s always immensely fun to
learn a new lick or voicing and incorporate it into my onstage vocabulary.
Whenever I can, I take a guitar lesson from
Jean-Marc Belkadi or other
guys around town—not just to learn new things, but because lessons keep
me playing guitar. I went to a Berklee summer session right after high
school in 1996, just to learn more guitar. That’s where I met John Mayer.
He won the big scholarship prize—the son of a bitch. That’s why I didn’t
give him that amp [laughs]. Article by

- Jean Marc Belkadi Kicks Ass !!! Mike Stern
- Dweezil Zappa: "All in the Family" also took lessons from players such
Jean Marc Belkadi . It was like Guitar University
- "Chordal Kung Fu" Guitar Player's Journalist - Jude Gold  
- Frank Gambale
I have always thought of Jean-Marc Belkadi as a remarkable guitarist.
He is definitely one of the finest new, upcoming Jazz Guitarist I've heard in
years..  His technique is awsome....  It's a matter of the public catching up
to what I've known for a long time. He is all set to blow you away and his
Stopover is a must for all serious guitar fans.
