None the less, when it comes to best blues guitarists, I always go for Roy Buchanan, who can break your heart with note after note, as well as playing rough and dirty when he wants to :-

Ya, I knew that. It's a great album.

I wish I'd found this thread a while ago!

Has anyone mentioned Blind Lemon Jefferson yet? He'd get into my top 5 with Clapton, BB. King, Duane Allman and Robert Johnson.

Blind Lemon was great. He's a local hero. Dallas, Texas was his old stomping ground. He used to play in Deep Ellum a lot, I've seen many local bands there. It's quite an honor knowing that I've walked some of the same ground that Blind Lemon Jefferson walked. Dallas is where he met T-bone Walker, and taught Walker the ways of the Blues. And of course, Walker went on to be the father of electric blues.

Wow! You probably live in one of the most historic places when it comes to blues artists. I ought to head over and visit some time. But then again... I might bump into Eraser time...

Haha! Interestingly enough, I've put him on "ignore" in my profile settings. So even if he turns up to complain about this, I won't know.
