The Contenders: Page 3

41 Kyle Gass

Seriously? This man may play comedy music, but this guy is really a ledgend. His speed is just awesome. Listen to tribute and kickapoo and tell me the guitar isn't good

44 Aoi (The Gazette) Aoi (The Gazette)
45 John Renbourn
46 Nancy Wilson Nancy Wilson
47 Norman Blake
48 Jon Gomm

Give Passionflower, Ain't Nobody, and Message in A Bottle a try. Amazing guitarist that uses harmonics, slap techniques, making his own drumbeats and typing (putting both your hands on the fret and play notes simultaneously all of those WHILE SINGING. You have to give him a try. I swear you'll be blown away

I'm a big fan of many of the above artists, but I have never seen a guitarist handle the instrument in the way that Jon Gomm does, in fact I would love to see all these virtuosi guitarists in the list above Gomm to play Passionflower. It's far from an impossible challenge, right?

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!

Come just listen to Massey hall. He is amazing

Neil should be higher up on this list but at least it's great to see him on it.

57 Nuno Bettencourt Nuno Bettencourt
58 Don Ross

This guy and Andy Mckee are Top 10 easily. Just go and listen to his song "Berkley Springs" and so many others.
