26 Leo Kottke

#27 really! He is much better tan that

27 Doc Watson

He was a great fingerstyle and flatpicking guitarist. He wasthe real thing when it came to good old mountain music but expanded into all genres, He is a class act!

28 Estas Tonne

He should be number 1 actually! Incredible guitarist!

He is a Russian guitarist that plays in stages for thousands of people, but also can create a crowd arround while playing in the streets.

I�'m very sad to see him at 42 :/ He is maybe the most talented guitarist on my opinion. He made the song of the golden dragon what is absolutely beautiful and his playing technique is enjoyable to watch. Everyone should listen the song of the golden dragon.

29 Julian Bream

Excuisite challenging and genre busting - rednile1

30 Al Di Meola

Not one person has taken the level of playing guitar as high as Al. He can read write and compose, play flamenco, jazz, improvisational world music etc. Who else would have written an entire album re-interpreting for guitar the bandoneon played Argentian Tango music of Astor Piazzola. Nobody, No guitar player could even dream of such a task, let alone do it.

"Ocean" is a masterpiece you can listen again and again. But best of all, when you watch him playing, you understand how physical it is and how much he has put himself into it. High in emotion.

Improvisation and overall precision of playing is unbelievable, arguably the best open tuning guitarist out there.

An amazing guitarist. If you don't believe check one of his videos. I recommend everyone to listen his song called Ocean

Deserves to be in the top 10 list according to me too

Forget the prog and rock (though brilliant) listen to the other side - rednile1

34 Johnny Cash Johnny Cash John R. "Johnny" Cash was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide.
35 Eric Clapton Eric Clapton Eric Patrick Clapton is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

Ok I know he is known for his electric stuff but everyone knows his "Unplugged" album. Listen and watch. He is also one of the best acoustic guitarists of all time. Any guitar list without him is bogus. Come on folks at least top ten. There are Grammys for a reason!

36 Yamandu Costa

Genius of the acoustic 7-string guitar.

This man is on another level. Transcends everything we ever thought was possible on an acoustic guitar. Ed Sheeran at 6? If I was Mr Dawes I would be offended by that.

40 Ben Howard

If you get a chance, check out his live performance of 'End of the affair' on the Jools Holland show. Absolutely breath and totally unique.
