    This. Anti-solo is exactly right. He solos and it is part of the rhythm, part of the song. Brilliant.

    +1 on David...

    I remember a Midnight Special .... about 35 years ago...and he flatpicked a fiddle tune..... wow. Yankee's Revenge and other works like that by him are very enjoyable. If people havent seen him flat pick...it is worth diggin up some ..

    +1 for the great Canadian, Kim Mitchell!
    He's like a rockin' Allen Holdsworth.
    Great singer/songwriter, too.
    Another shredderific hero is the late, lovely April Lawton, of Ramatam.

    I'll add one for Santiago, Annie Clark, and the dudes from Sonic Youth. I think Jonny Greenwood gets a lot of credit, at least from people I know and talk to. I wouldn't really put much stock into what GuitarWorld or whatever garbage has to say.

    And I'll add Dave Davies, and Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd from Television. Like I said, I don't really read guitar mags so these guys could be more praised than I thought, but these are a couple guys I don't hear talked about enough, personally.

    Another plus for Buck Dharma. I am continually surprised that he isn't mentioned in the same breath as Page, Clapton, SRV, Santana etc. Absolutely brilliantly inventive and utterly unique.
