The Top Ten
No one improvised liked Stevie, he could play 50 licks off of the top of his head or rather from his heart... buttery smooth every song all night long. No one played as clean, no one had the tone...
There will never be another Stevie Ray Vaughan... the current boys ain't got the chops or the soul... not even close... the people are still waiting for the next SRV ~ They're gonna be waiting for a while...
Hendrix was the innovator, SRV the ultimate technician.

Most definitely, the best blues guitar god!
He can do any song of any guitarist.
Clapton doesn't come close.
Not that clapton isn't awesome. You know what I'm saying.
Extraordinary guitarist and a master of a single string solos. His bends and vibratos had a huge impact on generations after him. For example SRV to just name a few.
Extraordinary voice as well. Also my personal favourite.
A player of great feeling and sensitivity. The notes he didn't play were almost as expressive as the ones he did.
BB was right.
Most under-rated blues guitarist ever, heard him when he played with John Mayall--awesome!
I can listen to this man play guitar over and over! Oh well part one and two blow me away every time. But the one true record that gets me is "i need your love so bad" his voice coupled with just simple expressice guitar playing is just breathtaking. I urge all walks of life to listen to this!More comments about Peter Green
The relaxed rhythmic Texas style of Samuel Lightning Hopkins precedes electric blues and speaks to what Billy Gibons of ZZ Top and other later Texas stylists accomplished after him.
Jonhnny winter could play most peoples style, but not many could play his style...
Truly gifted, real sorry he parted ways with Climax Blues band.
Ronnie learned his chops from Buddy Guy and Buddy's friend Lonnie Brooks... Ronnies father. RBB grew with all the Chicago blues greats during the past 35 years or so. Check him out some time, you won't be disappointed.
Mainly known for jazz... But could some wicked blues as well.
