Most Complete Guitarist (Blues, Jazz, Rock)

I had never heard of this man before today, and I was just taken aback by the amount of talent and genius it takes to be able to know so many genres of music all the while keeping tremendous feel and speed in his playing. To me this display puts Steffen Schackinger among the absolute best in the world. This guitarist is just so musical in his playing, it can actually be called music for once. Blues, Jazz, Rock, Vibrato, Feel, Emotion, “drool”, Envy… He’s the best player you’ve never heard of… yet.

Top 10 Solo guitarists

The radio was a great invention for music. Today we can listen to all types of music anytime. Some of that great music can feature some pretty darn good musicians like Jimmy Page (Led Zepplein) or Slash (Saul Hudson, Velvet Revolver, formerly of Gun’s N’ Roses). However some great music has been written by some really great musicians, but their hits may never even hit the air waves. I decided to round up a list of my top ten players who have made a living, being …
