    Musical Preference

    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 ...

    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.

    Smile mixed bag

    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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILbha...eature=g-all-u

    I think Steve Winwood's "Mr. Fantasy" played at Clapton's Crossroads is an all time classic performance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvyqHueaO08&feature=fvst

    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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z_slWb-UNU

    To contrast my rock & roll appetite, I am totally infatuated with Diane Birch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5XJxFtYEes who sounds like Laura Nyro/ Carole King/ Burt Bacharach/ Hall & Oats combined with some Tin Pan Alley, Blues, and Motown Old Soul. Here is a recent concert that showcased some of her amazing piano skills while introducing new material from her upcoming album: http://www.livestream.com/joespub/vi...9-68a56ba2d81b

    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.

    Fine, but now you are mixing guits with lyrics. I think the OP wants to talk about stand alone guitarists; much harder to make your was as.

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