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.
