Except that Edgar didn't play guitar, he played keyboards.

He didn't say he was a better guitar player. He just said better. If thats the criteria, Johnny doesn't make it out of the family.

I concur. I am absolutely in love with his cover of Little Wing.. 1/2 the reason I'm getting the words "Fly on Little Wing," inked on my shoulder.

I like the way Vaughan shows the softer side with his single, Riviera Paradise.

IMHO innovative guitarists are few and far between. The dude from RATM was probably the most recent groundbreaker - Eddie VH before that. $0.02

I agree with this guy here as far as the innovators go. I'm not even a big fan of RATM, but when I saw that guy on TV (I think it was the RNR Hall of Fame Concert), I almost licked the TV. I feel terrible for overlooking that one.

I must also say this... so many people claim Jimi Hendrix is one of the best because he was "innovative," but I don't understand why they say that. Sure, he lit his guitars on fire and played with his teeth once in a while, but how was that innovative?

I must agree. I love his covers more than I like most of the others... Though Hendrix was good, Vaughan was amazing, especially with his version of that song.

Iv always felt SRV played more traditional blues and stayed within blues structure far more than Hendrix, whom seemed to abide by less rules. It shows especially in there lead playing.
