Interesting list;Allan Holdsworth at no.5 when most people have`nt heard of him?Syd Barrett I think of being a songwriter more then a guitarist,better then J?I don`t think so <img> good list of jazz/blues guitarists:Wes,Guitar Slim,Farlow,etc. I think the honarable mentions should have made the list:Sonny Sharrock was amazing,the missing link between Coltrane and Sonic Youth in my opinion.Frisell,Breau,Ribot are all great as well.
