Forty Guitarists to Check Out (Part II: 21-40)


Part II includes more guitarists whose musical contributions are worth considering. Most of the guitarists listed are lesser-known. The order is based on date of birth, not as a judgement of the player's musical value or talent.

Selecting two musical examples for each guitarist made for a substantial challenge. The bredth of talent can hardly be represented by two samples. The selected examples offer only a glimpse into the talents of each guitarist. Exploring more of a guitarist's playing who garners your attention is recommended. 

No commentary has been made about each player. Keep your ears and mind open. Try not to dissect the player; you will likely miss the proverbial forest through the trees.
