The Bhoy Discusses Some Of His Favourite Guitarists

If you think this needs "moar metal", you're probably an idiot.
1Django Reinhardt

He only had two working fingers on his fretting hand. He's better than your life. Will be reviewing his greatest hits collection when I get a chance.
2Bill Frisell

While around these parts he's best known for Naked City, Frisell is actually best when he's not doing crazy shit. Prime examples: Disfarmer, Blues Dream, and his collaboration with Kenny Wheeler and Dave Holland on Angel Song.
3John Fahey

Bringing back into prominence the fingerpicking, fluid style that dominated roots Americana music, such as Appalachian folk.
4Ohad Benchetrit

Best known for his work with Do Make Say Think and some guest work with Broken Social Scene. Most people cite the percussion and bass as the heart of DMST's refreshing take on "post-rock", but Ohad's inventive use of homemade pedals and subtly complex chord arrangements make him an underappreciated guitarist.
5John Scofield

Up All Night is the funkiest jazz album this side of sliced bread, mainly due to Scofield's effortless experimentation and knack for groove.
6Jeff Parker

Of Isotope 217 and Tortoise, Parker is a staple in the blooming Chicago modern jazz scene. Listen to Tunnel Chrome off the Chicago Underground Quartet's S/T and you'll get why he's so damn cool.
7Pepe Romero

Simply the best in terms of classical guitar. That's explanation enough.
8Jimmy Page

Okay, so this may be the obvious addition to a list about guitarists, and the argument could be made that he isn't nearly as inventive a guitarist as some make him out to be- but that doesn't take away from the music. With his love of Blues scales and mandolin's, Page is the perfect example as to why Led Zeppelin are the best band from the 70's. They managed to be that little bit more talented than their peers.
9Les Paul

It's called an electric guitar.
10John McLaughlin

Anyone who has heard Mahavishnu Orchestra's first two albums will not be shocked by this inclusion. His improvisation, and band interaction are phenomenal.
