I have pretty eclectic taste in musuc but guitarist Leo Kottke, Roy Clark and Chez Atkins in my top ten of favorite musicians.
Any fans of instrumental guitar out there ?

This HAS to be in the wrong forum...( although it has stood here for awhile it seems ).
And HELL YEAH to the " Instrumental Guitar " subject. Roy Clark , Chet Atkins .... how about Steve Morse ...
Malmsteen " Marching Out " ( man he was incredible back in the day )
hope this helps.

Ok, I'll play...look at my Avatar and screen name.
Jeff Beck, Satriani, Paco De Lucia, Al Di Meola,, Steve Vai. Then we can play the Blue's game.

Not to highjack thread......and knock me on my butt (OP) if you think I am...but the greatest white dude to ever play the blues was Johnny Winter. Stevie Ray Vauhgn, a close second.

My all time favorite style is David Gilmour. However, I love classic guitar rock and blues guitar. So many great guitarists nobody has never heard of. I recently found one jewel that is taking the guitar internet by storm and no one can find out anything about her except she is a Parisian:
I think Steve Winwood's "Mr. Fantasy" played at Clapton's Crossroads is an all time classic performance.
I think Jimi Hendrix is overrated and his play was very sloppy but he was creative and balls to the wall as was SRV.
I like Tab Benoit's style, too.
To contrast my rock & roll appetite, I am totally infatuated with Diane Birch:

Never thought Eric Clapton was a great Blues guy, just a good guitarist; good technician, good at answering the question, not so good at asking the question. Gary More is good for sure, but always kinda copied others IMO.

Great player but not much in the way of original material

An unassuming player Hank Marvin, not the typical.
You will know his sounds but maybe not the guy.
