I just started reading your blog, and it is good. I like your taste in musicians. I like this guitar list, and have a lot of favorites towards the top, although I also enjoy some more rhythm oriented guitarists who end up being further down the list. Good site.

Hey glad you are enjoying my blog. I mostly like classic rock, and heavy metal genre. I just love guitar solos and wish the new bands would incorporate more solos.

ask Jimmy P and Eric who the best Yardbird guitarist is (was) I agree with them: Jeff Beck
I feel he's also better than Jimi...he did (does) so much more diverse styles...
