    Yeah, Jesse hailed from my neck of the woods. Kiowa Indian.

    He wasn't just Taj Mahal's guitarist, he played on a zillion sessions including the tasty playing on "Last Train to Clarksville" by The Monkees. He did studio sessions and played in live bands including Jackson Browne, Clapton, Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Willie Nelson, George Harrison and John Lennon.

    The man could play anything...covered all kinds of styles. Sadly missed. He died too young and for all the wrong reasons.

    Maybe Robert Fripp, I heard he played on Heroes by Bowie (one of my favourite songs).

    You're damn right about that! He's equally good in the blues and folk genres and some of his slide playing could even be mistaken for Ry Cooder.

    Playing the blues:

    Norwegian folk music in China ... He's also a very funny guy.:lol:

    David Hidalgo. Not really known as a "guitar hero", but why? Tasty, clever, unique, and REAL.
