    The first guitar note on this about 3 seconds in - and it is undeniably Albert King! That said, it would be criminal not to play the rest of it!

    I heard a jazz guy interviewed somewhere and he said the whole point of playing was so that if your mom heard you on the radio, she'd know it was you. A few true chameleons out there -- not sure I would always know it was Mike Campbell on a cut, for instance -- but most of the players I admire have a voice all their own.

    I'm dubious about single notes as well. BB King seems easy but if the particular note I hear doesn't have that vibrato I'd probably miss it.

    The first guy I thought of isn't a guitarist, Itzhak Perlman. I can get lost in the beauty and and complexity of a single note of his. "Bach Sonatas and Partitas" is truly mind blowing.

    Santana and its a very very very long note perhaps at times of questionable pitch
