    Quarantine has lead me to listen to a lot of music. The Zeppelin thread had a discussion of some of the best guitarists. Who are some of your favorites?

    Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Eddie Hazel - not as well known but a spectacular talent.

    Maggot Brain is unreal.... And is one of the most beautiful guitar performances ever recorded.

    Eric Johnson. He is so fluid and dynamic in his playing. His sound is unique and meticulously crafted. One of those few guitarists that can be identified by TONE alone.
    Strat.
    Tube Driver.
    Echoplex.
    Plexi.
