    Never in a million years would I have plucked this answer out for myself BUT it’s very hard to argue against.

    I'll second the Bruce Cockburn post. Seeing him live at BC's Salmon Arm Roots and Blues festival was totally captivating.

    Sorry if it's a repost, but Jeff covering a Porter Wagoner and up in that range, wow.

    And imo, he could flat work a Tele. Such an expressive player.

    If you're going to praise DUANE Allman, at least get his name right!

    If elite means somebody who could achieve success and professional acclaim at both skills, my vote is for Glen Campbell as mentioned previously.
