The Greatest Acoustic Guitarist of All-time! No one can match his Excellence! - Nirmal1991USA
Nobody is even in Michael Hedges league. He reinvented the acoustic guitar.
I saw Phil a few years back in Joppa, MD. All I can say is, it was amazing. Just an incredible musician and performer.
Easily the most innovative, creative and technically gifted acoustic guitarists that has ever lived. I highly recommend anyone that is not familiar to check out his pieces. Great arrangements and so much passion when playing. Truly amazing.
I've been playing guitar for nearly 50 years. I've heard all these other guys and without a doubt they are all great. But I've never heard any picker do what Tommy Emmanuel can do.
Just a tremendous guitarist who posseses skills a technique beyond comprehension. Also a great person. If you get a chance to see him live I can assure you wont forget it!

Had the pleasure of seeing him live 3 times. The most gifted, influential, inspiring artist I have ever seen. His music, passion, energy, and love for life will truly be missed.
Saw him right before he died in Maryland. Beyond amazing and unique

No one is as good as Paco! This guy is a pioneer.
Amazing and so cool. When are you coming to Canada?
One of the greatest I have seen,
Don't forget about Al de Meola.
Who else plays two songs at the same time?
He is the best, period!
Although more known as an electric guitar player, check out "Mark Knopfler showing his magic on acoustic guitar" on YouTube. Probably the most epic ragpicking I've seen.
The song Spencer the Rover is one of my favorits and his style of music is like Nick Drake

I think Sungha jung should be on top 10 cause his guitar sings the lyrics of every song he wants to cover... Listen to his videos so that you'll know what am talking about
Sungha is still so young that's why he should be in the top ten. He's gonna be better than all those guitarists when he grow up.
Ever listened to him! You should he's better than taylor swift.
I think also he should be I top ten!V7 Comments
