Don’t think he’s been mentioned but......

Jerry Reed

and my all time favorite Tommy Emanuel. He’s a limey wanker but completely badass.

It's hard to beat the Nashville Musicians they call the A Team. They're the ones that played on so many of the greatest records of all time.
Chet Atkins
Hank Garland--jazz guitar player extraordinare
Grady Martin--Willie's lead guitar player for 25 years
Harold Bradley
They were all superior in many ways. But their abilities to change music styles and techniques according to the recording sessions was legendary.

Once a journalist asked Clapton what is was like being the worlds greatest guitarist...... his reply was I don't know you'll have to ask Prince.
