Would have been interesting to see the list of 70.
Took me 5 seconds to decide,then I saw the "Other" Box at the bottom.
The top two vote catchers were obvious without looking at the scores.

Can`t believe BB won that,or come second.At Bluesfest he was pretty ordinary.Missed chords ,missed runs.must have got votes `cause they wheeled him out in a wheelchair.Saw him in London in`71,when he was at his peak,fabulous.

Other is still in front,followed predictably by Carlos Santana.
How many times are you able to vote ?
The system does not always reprimand you for voting again.

My Bluesfest guitar hero without a doubt is Derek Trucks

My bass playing hero is bass slappin' Larry Graham.

"My bass playing hero is bass slappin' Larry Graham.

To vote for Derek,you must also vote for Susan,or include him under "Other'
Larry doesn't need a lead.He is it.Should be on the list.All the students who are tutored in bass playing know about him,even in remote places.

As much as I have loved all of Derek Truck's playing with Tedeschi Trucks Band over three visits, I can't forget the impact the first and second times I saw Gary Clark Jr play - he is hypnotic !

Gary had the impact on me I got from seeing Jeff Beck (a close second) and Robin Trower.

I chose the wrong time to see Gary, immediately after seeing Jeff Lang for the first time.

Although Robert Randolph still holds the spot of the top act I've seen at Bluesfest I don't view him as your normal guitar player.

The first time I saw Joe Louis Walker probably tops the list as my most enjoyable show.


The two unbelievably good acts blending acoustic & electric together were Harry Manx with Jeff Lang & Eric Bibb with Staffan Astner

Guitarist have kept me at the Blues Fest and I have thoroughly enjoyed them but my outstanding guitarists have been Jeff Beck (who I thought I would never get to see after I got hooked on Truth and Beck-Ola), followed by Joanned Shaw Taylor (who jammed so well with out local rhythm section of Chase the Sun), then Larry Carlton & Robben Ford (unbelievable gig). But there is very little between the great range of guitarists we have seen, from so many different styles of music - Warren Haynes, G3 (two versions), Bernard Allison, Gary Clark Jnr, Joe Louis Walker, Steve Lukather (with G3), Sony Landreth, Lee Ritenour, Harry Manx, Peter Green, Richard Thompson, Duke Robillard, Derek and Susan, Laura Chevez, Eric Gales, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang,
Time for Ana Popovic........
