Two people I forgot to mention are Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton. You can't go wrong with either of their guitar playing. Both have a very unique sound to their guitars.

It's the eight deadly sin to forget Clapton.

Anyone heard of Roy Buchanan? He is amazing.

Eric Clapton is still brilliant. I wouldn't say he's the best though. Saw him with Derek Trucks 4 years ago 2nd row from the stage and couldn't stop watching his licks on the guitar. Incredible concert.

Now that I've mentioned it Derek Trucks deserves some credit here. I reckon he's one of the best recent blues guitar players.

I've seen Eric Clapton with Derek Trucks too... I forget when, maybe it was the same 4 years ago. I was hoping they would perform Bell Bottoms Blues - but they didn't. While we're on the subject I think Duane Allman is one of the best, even though he is in a jam band, his playing style is straight from the Blues. Keith Richards is probably under-rated for his Blues style guitar playing (even though he's known for his open G tuning and playing different styles of music) when he plays the Blues he has a few tricks up his sleeve you wouldn't expect.

Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Willie McTell are my favorite. I saw a short clip of Beck (Hansen not Jeff...) play acoustic Blues once and he was pretty good at it, but I never did find anything by him that was strictly Blues. But I did come across a video of Rory Gallagher doing a set of acoustic Blues numbers - since I don't know too much about him it wasn't something I wasn't expecting to see, it was a happy happenstance.

I saw Derek trucks in concert a few months ago, and wow, was I impressed. The guy has a really unique sound, only comparable to duane allman, but he's quite a bit different than Duane.

I don't really like calling him a "blues guitarist". Even when he's playin the blues it doesn't really sound like any other blues guitarists. And then there's the side of him that you hear in songs like "Mahjoun", "sahib Teri bandi" and the whole "soul serenade" album, except for a song or two.

Yeah, Keith is a great blues guitarist. In the Chuck Berry movie Hail! Hail! Rock N' Roll, even Berry told Keith: "You are very good. You shouldn't play rock n' roll, you should play the blues". But anyway, I think that Mick Taylor is a better blues guitarist than Keith.

^ When you go to a concert, you keep choosing the kind of guys I`d like to see ! I really liked the clip you posted of "Sahib Teri Bandi", btw. Thanks.

^ There`s some great playing on the Live In Boston four-cd package. Have you heard it, R&R ?
I saw Pete Green playing one time in a London pub, but he turned in a very disappointing performance; some band had been put together, trying to cash in on his name, at a time when he really wasn`t up to playing in public.

^ Welcome to MB, 12barblues. I wonder if by any chance you like blues music ?
Jimmy Thackery is a new name to me, so I thought I`d put up a clip in case anyone else is as ignorant as me. Pretty impressive, I must say !
