The second best guitarists

We all know the threads where arguments rage about whether Hendrix was better than Mick Stewart etc. etc., but who are the second rank guitarists, those who never made it to guitar hero status but who are still the most amazing performers.  For starters I nominate Antonio Forcione

Why can't we embed vids?  Or can we and I'm just to stupid to wotk out how?

Hardly second best, I like this guy JJ Cale

I have him on the CrossRoads Guitar Festival DVD playing with Mr Clapton
Here it is "Call me the Breeze"

During the Clapton solo he is watched from the back by John Mayor who is Awestruck!

Re: The second best guitarists

I am ignoring the thread title second best guitarist now
Presenting Doyle Bramhall and Snowy White playing an excert from Dogs on the "Live in the Flesh" tour, please enjoy.

Note Mr Bramhall playing a right hand strat left handed.

Their version of Comfortably Numb is outstanding

Sorry, not my thing.  For me the second bests have all got something special about what they do rather than trying to copy the same old same old.

Re: The second best guitarists

Doyle Bramhall has just gone up a couple of points.....that was superb.
I'll be seeing Aussie Floyd do that at the Sheffield Arena next week and it'll be good too Cool
