    So many So many...

    All the guitars players on the "Wrecking crew", The "Funk Brothers", Nashville "A-teams"... Between these 25 or so guitar players you have 80% of "modern music" hits, yet to most they are unknown...

    In the power pop/post punk genre: Paul Westerberg and Bob Mould.

    And finally, french canadian country guitar hero (he passed away a few years ago) Bobby hachey... If you have a chance, try to get his intrumental compilation... Excellent!!!

    Jim Weider - One of my favorite Tele players

    Ignore the video but listen to the tune. It's called Bigfoot.

    Rick Vito. My favorite work of his is on Roy Orbison's "(All I Can Do Is) Dream You" (recorded version - not the live 'Black and White Night' version). Worth a listen if you've never heard it.

    I have posted him many times before: Zhenya Kolykhanov, a founding member of the Red Elvises. Here's a song from the soundtrack of Six String Samurai:


    Also, I have often said that Bob Burriss, who makes Burriss Amps, is one of my favorite rockabilly guitarists, but I can't find any online examples of him playing. I have his band's CD. Here is Bob playing a little, but it's mostly the guy with eh Les Paul (Bob is playing the tele)

    Donnie Thompson (aka D. Clinton Thompson) of Springfield, Mo. (Skeletons, Morells, Symptoms)...this guy is the reason I bought a Tele.

    Much of my misspent youth (college years) spent seeing him in the Symptoms, Morells, Skeletons. Tele and a Deluxe Reverb was all I ever saw him use.

    Great rock n roll, rockabilly, country all with GREAT chops and humor. Great, really obscure covers and original material, too. Sadly, Lou Whitney (studio owner/engineer/producer), the bass player, passed away recently.

    Completely agree. Have very much admired Thomas' understated style ever since getting into instro-surf.

    i'd say Jake Cinninger from umphreys mcgee
    got to see a live show to really appreciate the improv and genre hopping they do.

    Man, good to see another CoC fan on here. I love Woody and Pepper Keenan (perhaps my favorite hard rock guitarist) together. It's like a bluesy Sabbath guitar utopia. I don't consider myself a metalhead in the slightest, but i'll always listen to Deliverance and In The Arms Of God. They are masterpieces, IMO.

    I had a guitar teacher years back, who was a very fine classical guitarist.....Candice Mowbray.
    My daughter and I took a guitar class with her, at Hagerstown Community College in Western Maryland.
