I don't remember who created the thread on this guy awhile back but I haven't been able to stop listening to Gary Clark Jr. since I opened it. The guitar solo @ the 4:00 mark gives me chills and sends me into convulsions at times.

bonamassa probably couldn't play quite like buckethead yet buckethead probably couldn't play quite like bonamassa.

joe has some of the best tone around for what he does. an arsenal of vintage guitars and boutique amps helps of course but he's got fantastic technique to go with it.

I have listened to all these guys, save Gary Clark, whom I will now check out, but JB seems to be able to cover the blues and incredible solos and acoustics, sort of the whole package. Guess I would give him the MVP so to speak. On to Gary Clark.....

Yeah, there's little sense trying to compare someone like Derek Trucks to Zakk Wylde or Robin Trower to John Lee Hooker. Each of the axe men mentioned in this thread are pretty damn good in their own right.

I'm not a big fan of Joe Satriani's solo stuff, but he's still an outstanding player. I personally think John Butcher Axis is really underrated and most people have never heard of the guy.

I watched Derek Trucks as a kid and, before he got his own band, play alongside Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule. And if you like Trucks, you might want to listen to his wife, who is also a pretty damn good blues guitarist- Susan Tedeschi.
