    I think it helps for someone to actually play to know the subtle differences between players.
    My brother has played string instruments for 45 years, guitar, mandolin, banjo. He says Jeff Beck is the best rock guitar player period.
    What do I know?
    My wife likes pickers. Someone that can negotiate the strings rather than strum. Like John Prine, Bonnie Raitt. Or the 12 string like Leo Kottke or Dave Von Ronk.
    There is no doubt Clapton has talent but who does say taught him?
    I guess I don't look so much for the mastery of the instrument as playing to the soul.
    Tracers work both ways.

    There will always be arguments as to who is the greatest in in genere, or jondra as we all have our own taste. Heck, Jimmie Hendrix was alway played up when in fact he could not touch Uncle Ted when it came to licks and speed.

    That being said, Jeff Beck is guitar god and my favorite. The thing about Jeff is, he can make the most amazing sounds come out of guitar without the use of affects. Knowbody else can do that, at least that I have ever heard. He's like Deep Purple in their early hay day years.....doing stuff know one else does.

    Eric Claptom got him kicked out of the Byrds. I think it was out of jealousy, maybe not. Jeff's abulm Wired and Blow by Blow were ground breaking. And his work with the Jan Hammer group and Bogart and Appice was great. Beck is so diverse, that's why I think he is the best as your brother states.

    I remember when Jonny Lang hit the scene, man he was good for a kid. I've lost track of him and need to see what he has evolved into.

    This guy's got a little bit of talent. Pretty sure he writes all his own music too.

    I got to see him in concert a few months before he passed. One of the greatest bass players in my opinion.

    I haven't read this whole thread, but Jorma Kaukonen has to be one of the best picker/players I've ever seen.....
