    [Moronic list excised]

    Hey, let's cut to the chase:

    Is there ANYone here stupid enough to find this list meaningful or
    significant?

    What can you say about a "guitar greats" list that includes, say, Joan Jett
    and Lou Reed but doesn't even mention Jimmy Bryant?

    Listen, electric guitar pioneer Bryant had his hand wounded by a freaking
    grenade and he could _still_ play with more technical ability than probably
    anyone on the list, plus he did it on a first-generation Telecaster with
    big strings. Jazz, rock and country swing all at once in the same song.

    Try downloading some of his incredible work with Speedy West from the
    fileservers and prepare to be humbled.

    Note that Fender refers to Bryant as "The Original Guitar Gunslinger."

    I often recall Frank's term for what the million-notes-per-minute players
    like McLaughlin, Dimeola, etc. were playing: "gnat notes".

    And I'm sure he was aware of the irony, he being a frequent gnat-noter
    himself.

    Yeah, but Frank'd hold onto one now and again.
