Gary Clark Jr

Gary Lee Clark Jr. is a musician from Austin, Texas. The Texas native was up and down 6th street at a young age & cut his teeth as a guitarist in the live music scene of the same city. He’s put out several projects in his career & I remember seeing him perform on PBS in the White House when Obama was president, either way he’s still a phenomenal talent.

Carlos Santana 

The guitarist of the band Santana Carlos is a bad man with a guitar and the band was super popular in the 60’s & 70’s, however the thing that comes to mind is the album Supernatural which included  the song “Maria Maria”or the songs “Oye Como Va” or “Smooth” with Rob Thomas . It infuriated me when DJ Khalid decided to sample Maria Maria to make Wild Thoughts which was unnecessary on so many levels but I digress because the guy that made “Black Magic Woman” was a skilled guy & still is with a guitar .

Stevie Ray Vaughn Jr.

Stevie was another great American musician and is noted in the revival of blues in the 1980s. He is commonly referred to as one of the greatest guitar players of all time.  The Dallas native was one of the phenomenal guitarist & it leaves a bunch of hypotheticals with his death in a helicopter like Selena, Aaliyah, or even Jimi. Even though he’s gone he left behind several works.

6th Man 

Jimmie Fallon

This on is a curve ball to most however before he was the host on the tonight show on NBC he was a talented guitarist and even played on SNL when he was on there. The thing that comes to mind when he did the troll doll auditions bit.

When talking about guitarist it’s very subjective but they rip & you can’t get past that.
