Most Talented Blues Guitarists
The Contenders: Page 5
One of the best guitar players around. Put him against anybody anyplace anywhere. Rusty could Bend, slide, spank a string like no other. Left handed upside down player in fact nicknamed him breach. Rest in peace my friend love you
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".
Heart and soul of Lynyrd Skynyrd until his death in 1978.
Just listen to Champion jack Dupree and Mickey guitar baker. Jack and Mickey in heavy blues
Agree and look at how many he inspired that have followed
Jerry could play anything, deserves better than 74
Played the Blues. His style was more Blue Grass banjo pickin, but still
A Blues man just the same.
He couldn't play a huge number of songs, but he would get the room jumping.
This girl has so much talent its ridiculous. She has absolutely amazing vocals and mind boggling guitar playing. If you don't know who this lady is you NEED to check it, its all good A side, B side.
This guy has a bunch of fantastic CD's out. Nobody's ever heard of him, but he can knock out the electric funk blues with anybody out there. Watch Knucklehead on YouTube. He is terrific.
THE FUNKIEST BLUES GUITARIST EVER WITH AN ORIGINAL SOUND
A MUCH COPIED PLAYER. FRANK ZAPPA'S FAVORITE GUITARIST
Off the charts Blues guitarist, singer, song writer!
One of the most melodic blues guitar players. Beautiful soloist and fine song writer.
Long forgotten and was still performing into his 90's. Coolest moniker in all of blues.
I really cannot believe this man wasn't added sooner. - Britgirl
A majority of AC/DC's songs are based around blues especially the Bon Scott era. Some of their bluesy songs: Night Prowler, The Jack, Satellite Blues, Down Payment Blues and their best blues song, Ride On. Young was inspired by guitarists like Johnny Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Chuck Berry, Pete Townshend, Hendrix and you can hear those players' styles in his playing. - BrianScott01
The new generation. He doesn't have any associated sound, because he is capable of every style that all revolves around the blues influence. He is the most versatile and academic musician alive today. Anyone who doubts his indubitable capabilities, please just watch the 'Where The Light Is' DVD.
"Where The Light Is" is by far the best thing ever he did! Blues is definitely in Mayer's heart. He inspired me a lot and thanks to him I now know a lot of blues artists that I got really inspired by them as well
Probably the most mechanically gifted guitar player still playing right now. People deny him his props because they don't like his pop songs, or his personality, or they're jealous of the fact that he can get any girl he wants. But let me tell you if you've listened to "Where the Light is: Live in L.A." or if you've just seen him play live at all and you refuse to believe that he is an insanley gifted with a guitar in his hand, there's something wrong with you. The man is a stud.
He should be in top 10. He is the best.V 4 Comments
