As most stated, there are a lot of great guitar players out there. But ask rock guitar instructors at reputable colleges and music programs not "Bob’s Music Store and Guitar School" on the corner by your house and the same few names will keep coming up. The one that will come up the most is Hendrix. Period. Some others with a few surprises. The biggest surprise would problem be Keith Richards. I never thought much about him until I was forced to listen closely. Pretty cool.
