10 Great guitarists in no particular order

I started as a guitarist before singing and then eventually writing.  There are many great guitar players spanning many great styles.  This group of ten are interlinked within the jazz and blues world and what that makes them “stand out” is their ultimately unique approach to the guitar.

In no particular order, 10 great guitarists:

  1. John McLaughlin
  2. Paco De Lucia
  3. Kenny Burrell
  4. Django Reinhardt
  5. Joe Pass
  6. Skunk Baxter
  7. Derek Trucks
  8. Freddie King
  9. Jeff Beck
  10. Wes Montgomery

I get a bit infuriated at the internet conversations of “who’s better: Jeff Beck or Pete Townsend?”   I think it’s a colossal waste of time.

On the other hand…exploring some of these guitar players…that’ll make your life richer.
