i like nearly all of the guitarists named a lot.
if if had to pick a fave...stevie ray vaughan was hendrix reincarnated, with a shot of the blues unfused quite nicely. saw him live several dozen times...was even there the night of his last performance when he was killed in a helecoptor accident.
clapton's body of work, with derek and his dominoes standing out pretty well above all else he did.
santana was...still is great. but he appears with too many newbies to appear relevent.
gary moore is still the best guitarist on the planet nearly no one has ever heard of.
mark knopfler's finger picking is underrated, too
david gilmore and s l o w style of play can stretch a note as well as anyone.
too many to name, really
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
