100 Greatest Jazz Guitarists (and Ranked)

I am not sure who created this silly list. Check it out to see such great revelations as Tiny Grimes ranking higher than Howard Alden, or Al di Meola beating Barney Kessel big time.

    I can live with the top 5 (not how I’d order them, but…). After that, the list goes to Hell. Numbers 6 – 10 are WAAY over-rated, IMHO. Perhaps the best thing about the Long Tail market for digital music is the ability to find quality exemplars of music from some of these artists from the past that one cannot find or afford in LPs.

    I can’t necessarily say it is a silly list. It’s really paying homage to the great jazz guitar players. I realize musical preference is not a contest, but it’s always fun to compare. Hard to argue with that top five, but maybe not in that order. Dang.. Joe Pass, what chops!

    Any list that doesnt include Jerry Hahn in its top five is lame!
