Seems like we agree on something - here was my list (as a guitarist I can't
think of one "favorite" or "best" as they are all unique). Sorry if my
spelling of names is poor:
Leo Kottke (best 12-string player in my book)
Laurance Juber (known primarily to studio and fingerstyle guitarists)
Guy Van Duser (nobody plays Sousa on guitar better than Duser)
Bob Brozman (slide guitar)
**Ben Harper (aquaintance and excellent slide guitarist)
El McMeen (an attorney no less)
Al De Meola
Bert Jansch (originally with Pentangle in the 60's)
Chet Atkins (Jethro Burns brother-in-law)
*Jethro Burns (an old friend from Chicago)
Steve Ray Vaughan
Robert Johnson (not the SEAOI Bob Johnson)
Blind Lemon Jefferson
Roy Rogers (the other Roy Rogers)
etc. etc. etc. and not in that order. I can't see how anyone can pick a
"best" when each of the above has a unique style that others can only "try"
and copy - I don't know anyone who can match them.
