    What about Randy California ?
    Spirit did some good tunes, and he did play with Hendrix didn't he.
    Or for an off the wall choice, Tommy Chong, recorded on Motown after all before he became a comedian.

    I used to see him playing all over the Central Valley in his off time from the Buckaroos. He can play anything. Very Versatile!

    Malkmus doesn't get the credit he deserves as a guitarist because his singing is so horrible.




    Somebody had to say it!



    oh, and my picks are

    Nick McCabe
    John Fogerty
    Adam Franklin
    Pj Harvey
    Jeff Buckley
    Dave Pearce
    Graham Coxon? Can he count?

    That's it for now

    Oh, and +1 for Santiago

    John Perry from the Only Ones... I've loved his playing for ages, know practically nothing about him.

    Pat Flynn from New Grass Revival, (and currently of The Guitar Trio w/ James Burton and Doyle Dykes!). One the finest musicians on the planet.
    Sean Costello- a true genius and an inspiration that was taken from us far too soon.
    Zal Cleminson- true Scots mad man from The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, and Nazereth.
    Alvin "Youngblood" Hart-a monster blues guitarist and singer who is a master of both acoustic and electric styles, slide, fingerstyle, blues rock, a commanding vocalist with true stage presence, who can mop the floor with better known fake "sons of the greats". It's a crime that he's not a bigger star.
    Corey Harris, Luther Dickinson, Jimbo Mathus,and Audley Freed are all criminally under recognized, as well.

    Some great mentions here already. Glad to see cats like Jerry Miller, Phil Manzanera and Martin Barre namechecked.

    I'll add Bill "Zoot Horn Rollo" Harkleroad from Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band.

    Good call on Randy California, who was still playing, singing, and looking great right up till his untimely death.

    Never discussed period, or never discussed as a guitar player?

    Jay Farrar's guitar playing always sounded good to me but never gets talked about.

    Regarding the late Eddie Shaver, yep he was fantastic. I count myself fortunate in that I got to see him perform live with his dad some years back, incredible and LOUD player.
