Just listening to Sunday Street on the way to work this morning.

You can never go wrong with Dave Van Ronk! Gotta love those Guild Jumbos.

Lindsay Buckingham.  Edge.  Dave Matthews.  Stephen Malkmus.  Richard Thompson.  Rodrigo y Gabriella.  Wes Montgomery.  Andres Segovia.  Tommy Emmanuel.  Pepe Romero.  Paco de Lucia.

I tend to find something I like in about just about everyone I listen to. I'm specifically listening to Robben Ford, Bert Jansch, Brad Paisley, of course Brent Mason (wether or not I even know it's him - you can't help but hear him everywhere), Tuck Andress, Page, Clapton, Hendrix et al,. Knopfler, Watson, Rice, Petteway, old Paul Simon... etc. Though I don't get John Mayer and some of the other newer guys - How did he get his own guitar? There are an awful lot of unsung hired guns that are just scary good. Jerry Douglas must have sold his soul to get the chops he has. And I apologize for the 1000's I've missed.

My list of favorites would be long, everything from Flatpicking Blugrass, to Acoustic Fingerstyle (most genre's) to Electric Blues/Rock, Some Jazz, etc.
A new favorite for me is MIke Dowling, I just had the opportunity to seem him play live for the first time at Boulevard Music in
Culver City last Sat. night, he was out west for the NAMM show, doing demo's in National's booth.
A great player, really has a great feel for the songs, and plays a sweet slide guitar style.
I was hooked, picked up five of his six cd's

Mike Dowling is one of my top favorites as well.  Was his new CD available, "Blues Ain't News"?  I wonder how it is, and what songs are on it.  I'd learn a few of his songs if they weren't in alternate tunings.  That stuff SCARES ME!  I did just get his slide guitar instructional DVD.  Open D and G tunings.  ARGHH...

Gone, but not forgotten: Big Bill Broonzy, Lonnie Johnson, Blind Blake, Rev. Gary Davis, and all the other acoustic blues greats. Amazingly, they did it without the help of instructional DVDs.

I've been listening to a lot of Tommy Emmanuel lately.  If anyone is interested in a Ukelele player, Jake Shimbakuro is quite talented.  He arranged a version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that is quite popular on youtube these days.
