Something like this is always highly subjective and individual, but in my opinion, it’s a tie for first: Duane Allman and Mike Bloomfield The latter has started to receive a little more credit in recent years, especially after his box set was released. But was anyone more influential? I know Jimi’s gotta be way up there. He was a true paradigm shifter. But, although he was born and raised in Seattle (mostly), he did have to move to London to become a star. An argument could be made that Hendrix was the greatest British guitarist of all time. I’ve also gotten less high on Jimi the older I’ve gotten, and my tastes have mellowed. 20 year old me would have said Hendrix, hands down.
