    Grew up listening to Mason Williams and thoroughly enjoy his music to this day. Dire Straights is one of my all time favorites for numerous reasons, Marks talent being #1.

    There's a few talented musicians in this video.... IMO.

    I'm a hopeless rocker, but I love good guitar wherever I hear it. Jerry Reed and his incredible skill brought a few country guys to mind, and Marty Stewart came to mind. He has always seemed damned comfortable with a guitar in his hands. jd

    Saw this guy live about 30 years ago. Couldn't believe he was the only one playing.

    Been to a lot of rock concerts over the years; one of the best was the night I was able to catch Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits; over the radio was good, live was super.

    Tommy is, by far, the most mesmerizing axe man...possibly ever.

    Saw a Ricky Skaggs concert one time and there was more good music packed into the hour than you could imagine. Here is him and genius Albert Lee on one of their most famous tunes. Pretty quick finners on both of em. jd

    I catch a Marty concert whenever I can. Never get tired of him playing Orange Blossom Special on the mandolin. His band members are no slouches too.

    OK I'll play. I self taught myself to play at 12.. Currently own a 62 Strat, and a home made axe. Guitarist? I nominate Jeff Beck. The guy is unreal.. And he is like my age.. There's other great players, but Jeff was there like forever.. Just listen to his version of "A Day In the Life"

    Tommy Emanuel, Steve Howe of Yes is called the maestro for a reason. There are truly many many guitar players that are out of this world with talent like Alex Lifeson of Rush and of couse Eric Clapton and Jimy Hendrix.

    To me, favorite guitar players are not so much about raw talent but more of a matter of style.....With that said, in my opinion in my narrow little world is Steve Vai, Frank Zappa, Jerry Garcia, S.R. Vaughan, Clapton, David Gilmour, Hendrix........A little window into what has been feeding my grey-matter over the years..o_O

    Regards
