Who is you favorite guitarist(s)?

#11766 3 years, 2 months ago
I would have to say it that, for me, is pretty much a tie between Garry Shider and Jerry Garcia. Garry has a slight edge because I had the honor to play with and learn from him for 6 years prior to his untimely death last year from cancer.

Jerry was the soundtrack of my youth. Both of them knew that what you didn't play was just as,, if not more, important than what you played.

Other guitarists that make my list are Blackbyrd McKnight, Citrus, Richie Havens, Bob Weir, Ani DiFranco and Pete Seeger.

Peace love and joy

Richie

Jerry Garcia
Eric Clapton-Turned me onto guitar playing really, it was White Room that started it all. I'm also a sucker for Woman Tone also but I also dig Clapton on a ES335 and the "brittle" sounding Firebird I. There something about a mini humbcker honk that does it for me.
John K-Furthur
Jeff Mattson-DSO
Rob Eaton
Bob Weir
Jeff Baxter-Love his guitar work with the Ventures and just a honest player in general. No BS with him.
Dick Dale
Jack Bruce-Don't know if this is supposed to include bass players but why not. Jack Bruce is a monster, has serious balls and can back it up with his chops!
Carlos Santana
Randy Rhoads
SRV
George Harrison
Trey
Robert Cray
Derek Trucks
Paul Kantner-Prob a odd choice but I always liked his playing
