Top 10 Best Acoustic Guitarists


The Contenders: Page 4XW

62Richard Thompson

A prolific songwriter, sure. There are songs I've heard him play 3 or 4 times live in concert and on 3 or 4 additional live albums. Each rendition is different, but each is immediately identifiable as Thompson on guitar, and each true to the song. Very few on this list can approach his mastery of the guitar and combine it with sensitivity to mood and personality.

63Jim Greeninger
64Doyle Dykes

Seriously I had to add him? Easily top 5 with Tommy Emmanuel. Guess people just haven't heard or seen him. Do yourself a favor and do so!

65Akihiro Tanaka

He is the acoustic counterpoint to Hendrix's lead on to original recording of "All Along the Watchtower"; simply brilliant.

Ok. I know he is known for his electric records, but watch him how he play electric guitar techniques on his acoustic guitar, it's very difficult to do certainly playing sweet chuld of mine
