Next week I'm going to a Jeff Beck concert. I've had three people tell me that he's in their list as a top 5 guitarist. I thought I'd look at that a little closer.
I've separated them into two list....The guitarists who have passed on and tomorrow we'll look at the greatest living players.
There are lots of candidates for both lists. Honorable mention for the late axe players goes to Jerry Garcia, Gary Moore, Alvin Lee, Joe Pass, Hubert Sumlin, Roy Buchanan, Terry Kath and Frank Zappa.
Here's the list....feel free to suggest others.
