    Great list. If you like musicians, check out the documentary "The Wrecking Crew". Glen is in it.

    Some of the sweetest slide guitar playing around. These two make it look so easy.

    Check out the Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festivals. Vids are on YouTube and DVD.

    He's done them in 1999, 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

    Best guitar players ever assembled on one stage......pick any year.

    Solid choices. I'm glad you included Dwight Yoakam. Not sure if you're talking about Dwight's playing or that of his guitarist Pete Anderson, but they're both good. Check out his rendition of Prince's Purple Rain:



    Stevie Ray Vaughan is the greatest of all time, IMO.

    I have seen Dwight at least 5 times, mostly in the 80s and 90s. He is a very good guitarist. Since you like the guitar, check out this guy who reviews guitar players on youtube. I enjoy watching him talk about the different styles and methods.

    Watch Gary do Peter, beautiful song and performance. If you like this, look up Peter Green.

    And then Peter Green...



    He was the original guitarist for Fleetwood Mac. He also replaced Clapton when he left the Bluesbreakers. Look him up, incredible blues guitarist that self-destructed while on tour with Mac. Took too many hits of acid at one party, never came back really. Another guy you may like is Michael Bloomfield, check him out on youtube.

    And then Danny Gatton who along with Roy Buchanan was one of the greatest guitarists of all time that never ever gave a damn about being rich and famous.



    BTW, Danny taught Joe Bonamassa everything he knows.

    Good call on both of those guys. Roy Clark could play the strings off of anything with strings on it. Glen Campbell too.

    Both Baltimore area guitarists that never got the recognition they deserved and died too young.

    No one played with more creativity or feeling. For the most part all of that was done between the 12th and 15th frets.
