For my money it's two of the all time greats
That I've not seen mentioned on this thread
And they are::
Eddie Hazel and Jim O'Rourke
Now if you haven't heard of these two
I'll have to insist that you are missing out
On some ground breaking music that was
Influential and in my opinion remains
Timeless too this very day.
Now let's see a show of hands on who
eddie hazel was staggering. maggotbrain is a masterpiece.


The wizard next door
Since I can't dispute the names mentioned so far, I'll just add one more: Maybelle Carter.

It's fair to say modern folk, bluegrass, and country wouldn't be the same without her playing style and those she influenced. Including, as the mother of June Carter Cash, Johnny Cash.
