Most Talented Blues Guitarists

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Sonny Landreth

The first time I heard Sonny, was on a live Government Mule album. When Warren Haynes introduces Sonny to the crowd... " the greatest SLIDE guitar player in the world, Mr. Sonny Landreth. " Right on Warren!
If you have not enjoyed Sonny, get to it.

After you do, if you are not familiar with Warren Haynes, check out Warren and Joe Bonamassa "battle of the blues guitar".

3 of the greats that should be on every top ten list of guitar greats.

Hell YA I SAW sonny Last January With Govt Mule he is Awesome SLIDE MAN

66 Paul Michael Stone
67 Kim Simmonds

How could you forget one of the best from Savoy Brown?

68 Mark Knopfler Mark Knopfler Mark Freuder Knopfler is a British singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and film score composer.

A truly great guitarist and song writer and should be rated amongst the very best.

69 Gugun

This guy is from Indonesia. He can rain it down on you. Far East Blues Experience is a terrific collection of tunes. An unknown who should be known.

70 Lonnie Mack Lonnie Mack Lonnie McIntosh, better known by his stage name Lonnie Mack, was an American Texas-blues guitarist who had influenced the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan. He died on April 21, 2016.

Every guitar player on this list knows Lonnie Mack. One of the cleanest players around. Way ahead of his time.

71 Joanne Shaw Taylor Joanne Shaw Taylor

AAyoung girl who plays with the ferocity and skill of someone twice her age. Anyone who makes you stop what your doing, mesmerized, and say "tear it up girl! " has something going for them. Listen to the guitar prowess on her album "Almost Always Never." Hell in the song "Jealousy" she's unstoppable. She once said "to be top female guitarist you have to be Hendrix like." I'm pretty sure Hendrix would tip his hat.

72 Mick Ralphs

Mick Ralphs was the guitarist for Mott the Hopple and the current guitarist of bad company

73 Big Bill Broonzy
74 Lead Belly

Real blues with a great blues name.

75 Jellybean Johnson
76 Taj Mahal Taj Mahal
77 Matt Murphy

How can Matt Guitar Murphy be left off this list?

78 Furry Lewis
79 Rusty Burns

Look him up on YouTube. Lefty AND upside down player founded Point Blank. Also watch him in his current band "Rusty Burns and Big Wampum".

80 Steve Gaines

Heart and soul of Lynyrd Skynyrd until his death in 1978.
