Oscar Moore of the Nat King Cole trio. he was one of the earliest jazz guitarists. if youve ever heard a song by nat king cole, youve probably heard moore's guitar behind the vocals. he ended up laying bricks later in life

+1

Oscar Moore was fantastic!

Another great guitarist who probably isn't known by many on this board is Hank Garland.

Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) is vastly underappreciated even though you hear his work all over the place.

Jeff Waters of ANNIHILATOR is one of the top 10 best EVER!

And to add, the Metal world is FILLED with underappreciated axemen. I can thin of 50 off the top of my head that would DOMINATE in any other genre.


Jeff Waters

BTW, thats Rob Flynn of MACHINEHEAD to his left.

Tough to call the lead guitarist of one of the biggest bands of all time, "not widely known." But in a sense you're right, since very few people appreciate just how good he really is.

I had the good fortune of seeing Roy live several times when I lived in VA. Also met him once after a show. He never got mainstream recognition, but it doesn't seem like he wanted that. He always had a loyal following anyway. RIP Roy..... the Master of the Telecaster.

Steve Morse won Guitar Player magazine's "Guitarist of the Year" so many times in a row, they banned him from winning it again. I've been a huge Morse/Dregs fan since about 1978, when I first saw them in a little club in Columbia, SC. One of the highlights of my life was meeting him at an EAA fly-in. He's a pilot, and was in the middle of a jet build. Super-nice guy. Very humble and real. I tried hard not to act like a groupie...

BTW - It's the "Dixie Dregs."

Hung himself in a jail cell.

As previously mentioned.. Junior Brown can play and is not as well known as he might be
I caught him on ACL a little over 10 years or so ago. worth checking into.


another find on ACL; Mato Nanji (Indigenous) needs some props as well

I remember that sad event all too well. There is a widespread belief among Roy fans, particularly in the DC area that he was beaten to death by the Fairfax County Police, then the "hanging" was staged to cover it up. My friends and I followed that story religiously when it happened. The details of that night are very sketchy and the autopsy results are inconsistent with the reports / testimonies of some individuals that were there. Whether it was a homicide or suicide will likely never be known to the public, but either way it was a great loss to the guitar world.

Unknown Hinson is a strikingly good live guitarist.

My all time favorite is Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits fame Sultans of Swing

Recently I discovered Joe Bonamassa Blues Deluxe

I always thought Neil "Spyder" Giraldo, lead guitar for Pat Benatar, was a good under-appreciated player. Not flashy, but fine.

Some more of my faves "lesser-knowns":

Skunk Baxter - Best known for his soulful and precise work with Steely Dan and the Doobie Bros.
Terry Kath - Chicago. Jimi Hendrix once said, "I hope that some day I can be as good as this cat."
Mahavishnu John McGlaughlin. - Simply amazing talent. Not everyone's cup of tea, though.
Al DiMeola - His work with Return To Forever never ceases to amaze.
