Jimmy was one of Country Music’s finest guitar players, Jimmy Capps is a ‘master of smoothness’. He is known in the studio for his ability to move flawlessly from ‘electric to acoustic’ with a polished and refined touch that he brings to every recording or performance he is part of.
Jimmy Capps has made as many records as a hat store has, well, caps. He seems to have a particular touch with acoustic guitar, and is known not only for jumpy solos but for concocting simple bits of riff business that help set up a song, one example among many being the introduction to Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler.”
While a scan at some session players’ discography provokes yawns and feelings of sympathy for what the player must have had to put up with, Capps seems to really have had it pretty good in his endeavors picking behind a wonderful cross-section of country & western artists.
One should expect nothing less, since Capps makes all the short lists of players responsible for building country arches of triumph such as the Nashville sound and the Opry sound. One writer narrowed his list down to three key session players, pianist Hargus “Pig” Robbins, steel guitarist Pete Wade, and Capps. When a frugal 1968 Opry manager decided to trim the list of nearly two dozen pickers ambling off and on-stage, Capps of course made the cut along with great players such as Harold Weakley, Spider Wilson, Leon Rhodes, and Buddy Harman.
Capps is also likely to make lists of great country guitar pickers, regardless of Opry affiliation, in the company of Chet Atkins, Roy Nichols, and Grady Martin. “He assembled a group of Nashville’s finest session players, then put Jimmy Capps in charge of the whole thing,” is a liner note detail chosen as evidence of his importance even amongst his talented peers. Capps won Nashville’s Golden R.O.P.E. award for musician of the year in 2001.
