Guitarist hall of fame

Thought it would be cool if we built a photo gallery of some legends of guitar. I'll start it off with this fantastic shot of Jimi Hendrix

I'll assume auto-correct got you ;)

Randy Rhoads will always be my favourite. This is my favourite image of him too (sorry it's so large).

scarebear.rocks - terrible guitar playing verbalised as terrible writing.

Good one, GS.

Well, I of course have to be the odd duck on this one.  Just how I roll, ya know.  8)  So, without further ado, an "out of left field" old favorite of mine - Mr. Roy Clark...
A computer once beat me at chess.  As it turns out, though, it was no match for me at kick boxing...

Not the best guitarist around, GS, but good.  And an entertainer at the same time.  Check out Wiki, of course, then do a search for "roy clark youtube" and check out a few.  Especially the 'Ghost Riders' from 2013 - not bad for 80 years old.  Just a fun guy that can play about anything...

I'd always put Jeff Beck high up on any list..........
I guess he was too busy building hot rods to have time for being a super star..........  8)


Just plug in, turn it up and play until something breaks....
