    There is a forgotten guitar great you mever see mentioned anymore. Dick Dale. King of the surf era guitar players. He's the old dude you see on commercials nowadays rockin out on his strat. He played on a lot of the old beach movies and still jams on movies today. BTW I just posted a sequence of my favorite Dick Dale song in original songs forum. Keep the king of surf guitar alive. Dick Dale rocks on

    One of my favorite guitarists of all time is The Edge from U2. He has a very unique style and signature sound. He approaches the guitar, amp, effects systems like they are a blank canvas with no preconcieved notion of how they should sound.

    Yeah hes a good 1

    But will he still be jammin when hes 65? Thats the approx. age of Dick Dale. A shame he doesnt get any recognition at all. Went from king guitar to nobody after the Beatle invasion. Dont get me wrong. I'm the worlds biggest Beatle fan too!!

    Ah c'mon now...........I know he isn't a king of the rock axe but where is Knopfler? The man is one of the most original guitarists to walk the earth and what a songwriter too!!!! Any thoughts?
