Rick Derringer played most of the guitar parts on Weird Al's first album, which was self-titled "Weird Al Yankovic." Since then, there have occasionally been guest Guitarists such as Mark Knopfler and Dweezil Zappa, but for more than 30 years, Weird Al's regular band guitarist, both on records and in live performances, has been Jim "Kimo" West. He can play any style of guitar that Al needs him to play, and also plays other instruments such as banjo, but the music he enjoys composing and performing when he's not working with Al is Hawaiian "slack key" guitar. His nickname "Kimo" means "Jim" in Hawaiian, and it was given to him by his musician friends in Hawaii.
