    This is my pick. Got to see him several different times in person in small venues and he never disappointed.
    Played perfect Rests and did not Overplay as a lot of players do. Tommy was also a great piano player.

    I saw Tommy Tripplehorn perform many times when I lived in Tulsa in the 80s. He was great.

    His stunning daughter Jeanne was in the early 80s a DJ on Tulsa’s classic rock station KMOD, before she moved to NYC to become a stage and screen and TV actor (first big movie roles were in Basic Instinct and Waterworld).

    Tommy Crook is another great Tulsa guitar player, not well known nationally. Here he is playing with Shelby Eicher on fiddle and Shelby’s sons on bass. Many years ago, Shelby played fiddle in Roy Clark’s band, but for the past couple of decades, he has played in various ensembles in Tulsa, including with his wife and sons.

    Here’s Jim Lower picking in his barber shop in Kansas City. He was playing in Branson when I moved here in 1992, but headed to KC a few years later.

    He starts getting fancy at about 1:45.

    I've seen Tommy Crook in person also and he is a great player. Here is another great Tulsa player who I got to take a few lessons from in the 1990s. Mark helped my playing tremendously and taught me how to think about and approach a song.

    Tommy Tedesco -- I used to love his Guitar Player column, and he played on just about every soundtrack on network television in the 1970s:

    Jeff Walls -RIP--super cool southern gent... was lucky enough to have been able to play with him when the Woggles swung thru DC some years back.

    Define “Non-Famous”. I’ll go with Tom Bukovac & Brent Mason.

    Bukovac wasn't famous till this spring when he fired up Homeskoolin'. One of the best things on the internet.

    I was in the Navy stationed at NAS Cecil Field at the time Doyle mentions about the sailor who inspired him to play guitar. I ran into Doyle a couple of times at a local music store ran my a friend of mine. He is IMHO a master acoustic guitar player and also holds his own on a Tele:) He has visited Fuller Guitars in Houston (TX) in past years and I always attended his demo performances.


    Enjoy:

    My definition of Non - famous is a guitar player that usually plays locally or regionally and not well known even among guitar players outside their sphere of influence.
    I think my 1st posting in this thread meets this "definition".
