    Hey B-Hatters:

    Being a guitarist, I always like to watch and listen to
    other guitarists. This is a guy I ran across on Youtube
    about 2 years ago. His name is Tommy Emmanuel. He's
    from Australia and he is both a masterful guitarist and
    a great entertainer.

    Check him out below. I think you will get a kick out of him:

    Hope you had a good time :)

    Oh yes . . I like Steve Vai as well. I like a bunch of different guitarists for different reasons. What amazes me about Tommy Emmanuel is that he plays without any accompaniment from other musicians. He doesn't need to. He's like a one-man band.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Speaking about one-man band, I suggest you search for "mattrach" on youtube. He is a teenager who records his own drums, plays awesome bass and plays the guitar like a pro! Check out his exotic rain and monophonic.

    He has been the reason why I started this whole IM business, I kept telling myself that "I will earn money online so that I could buy equips like he has and post to YT as well!" till' this day I still get a fair ounce of motivation from him.

    It's great to see that there are Guitarists here on BHW as well :D

    John Frusciante is also an excellent guitarist. It's more of his style that gets to me than anything.

    Nonetheless, this dude is a great guitarist.

    I like how the way the finish is worn away on his guitar. Tells the story of the effort that went into being able to play like that...
