You mean Mueller's solo album, or his bands like Rodan, Shipping News, etc.? Not because it matters, just curious.
I was BIG into Rodan and June of 44 when I was a wee boyman, playing in my first couple bands and such. I think Mueller had a major had a massive influence on my guitar playing, as I used to jam on "I Get My Kicks For You" constantly, trying to replicate the sound and vibe of the riff.
I would say Slint did as well, but as a band their sound was defined more by the dynamic between players than by any individual instrument. The result being that you really needed a four-piece band of likeminded individuals to duplicate the sound. Mimicking the guitar parts alone just didn't do it.
