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

Saw Garry Shider at least 25 times with P-Funk, Bootsy, etc. He was great but I'd have to say that Eddie Hazel, who I saw in the mid 70s, was even better.

Eddie was awesome. I never had the opportunity to meet him as he was long gone by the time I joined the P-Funk family.

I still go with Garry. The sparseness of his playing was just amazing.

There are so many great guitarists out there that one might think this was a tough question. Jerry is certainly not the fastest. On the other hand, no one can rip out such melodic sounds that make you smile from ear to ear and say, "I am with you, on that one man!" So Jerry wins it for me, because his music was magical and inspired so much happiness. It's funny how a simple la da deee da can make one smile...make one's day...make one's life! I loe you Jerry, forever!

For you Django lovers you MUST seek out Roy Williams. He's playing with Stephan Wremble tomorrow night in Scranton, PA. With a lineup that truly is a once in a lifetime mind blowing event. A cut right from Django. If you're into that gypsy jazz swing thing this kid is the real deal and someone you should see....
