My wife -- for obvious reasons. (no really. She can modal tune a 12 string in a minute and tear your heart out. Then she sings and captures your soul)

I asked her and she offers Nina Gerber -- based on performance excellence in ALL genres of guitar music.

Personal favorite: Ritchie Blackmore.
For a supernatural chiller mixing magic (prestidigitation, legerdemain) with Magic (occultism, mysticism), check out my novel MAGIC: AN OCCULT THRILLER at http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Occult-Thriller-Reed-Hall/dp/1453874836

Wes Montgomery for jazz, Julian Bream for classical, Freddie King for blues, too many to have a favorite for rock. There are also women guitarists who aren't as well known but deserve recognition like Mimi Fox or Orenthal (Michael Jackson's guitarist, but not sure about spelling here). Lynn

I have several but if I'm only picking one I'll have to go with Chris Duarte. He really should be more well known.

I love Lightnin'. I was given a record of his when I was 9 years old. It was what inspired me to become a musician.

I'm a finger-picker, so... Rev. Gary Davis, John Hurt, Charlie Patton, Jerry Reed, Chet Atkins, Buster B. Jones, Duck Baker... for slide, Blind Willie Johnson, Fred McDowell, Ry Cooder.... I could list many more players who inspired me.

Nina Gerber is an incredible musician. I've seen her backing up Kate Wolf and also Greg Brown.

For your enjoyment:

A fantastic performance of "Cause We've Ended As Lovers" by Jeff Beck, live at Ronnie Scott's in 2007. After Jeff's first melodic statement and solo, check out young female bassist Tal Wilkenfeld's bass solo. Jeff is obviously blown away by her playing, seeming to say "I don't know what to play anymore." Then he launches into an amazing response.

That whole show is fantastic. Beck's band is extraordinary. Wilkenfeld is terrific, but drummer Vinnie Colaiuta is absolutely phenomenal.

Check out this version of Rollin and Tumblin featuring Imogen Heap (really!) on vocals.



But get the DVD of the whole show; it's great!
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats
