I made two discoveries this weekend; Tommy Emmanuel and YouTube. My old imac system 9 does fine with most browsing, but will not handle some audio/video content. We have been on vacation and took my wife's Dell laptop along. When I Googled TE I got a bunch of YouTube hits and checked em out. As you might imagine it took a loooong time to get me off the computer. That guy is phenomenal! My wife dug his playing too. Looks like Only, Endless, and Live are going on the buy list.

I don't understand where you folks hear of some of these musicians?  I read articles in guitar mags and lots of stuff online and have still never heard of many of these players.  Guess it's a pretty big ocean out there for guitarists. 

And then on the other hand, lots of times when I do finally hear some of the guys spoken of so highly on the forums, I normally don't enjoy the playing much.  There seems to be many great players when it comes to technique; but when it comes to melody and good songs it's hard for me to find someone that speaks to me.  Anyone else go through this?

Tommy's on tour right now, and you have to see him if he comes anywhere near you.

1. Me and Chet /  Me and Jerry - Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed's two Albums on one CD.  For me, It don't get better than this.
2. Leo Kottke - "6 and 12 string guitar" or "Greenhouse"
3. Hot Tuna - Hot Tuna (Their first album and my inspiration to learn to finger pick)
4. Pat Donohue - American Guitar (Fantastic!)
5. Ry Cooder - Paradise and Lunch (not all acoustic, but I still rate it number 4 all-time acoustic recordings.  Cooder's cover of Blind Blake's  "Diddy Wah Diddy" is the best I've ever heard. Not the fastest, but the BEST, AND the standard by which I judge all recorded acoustic guitars.

Here's a few that, IMO, no acoustic player should be without:

Charlie Patton The Best of Charlie Patton (Yazoo 2069)
Mississippi John Hurt Avalon Blues: The Complete 1928 OKeh Recordings (Sony CK 64986)
Crosby, Stills & Nash Crosby, Stills & Nash (Atlantic 82651-2)
John Hartford Aereo-Plain (Rounder CD 0366) currently out of print
Jerry Douglas & Peter Rowan Yonder (Sugar Hill SHCD-3847)
Norman Blake-Nancy Blake-Tut Taylor Shacktown Road (Dualtone 80302-01256-2)
Grateful Dead Workingman's Dead (Rhino R2 74396)

. . . and lastly, the best acoustic (well, all but three tracks are strictly acoustic) Bentonia blues disc in years, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes Back to Bentonia. Has anybody else here heard this disc yet? If you love country blues, you gotta hear this one.

My life feels richer having listened to the above albums/discs.

I asked the same question when I first started coming to the forum and got some great suggestions:

http://www.larriveeforum.com/smf/index.php?topic=1166.msg8626#msg8626

A couple of guitarists that I really like that haven't been mentioned are Doyle Dykes and Keola Beamer, who plays in a wonderful Hawai'ian Slack Key style. Michael Chapdelaine is also one you should check out.

I can't believe that nobody has mentioned Chet Atkins.  I love all of his stuff.  It's precise yet fun to listen to.  Another fine picker that a lot of folks overlook is Jerry Reed.  It's a shame that he will go down in history as "Snowman" on "Smokey and the Bandit" and very few know of this guitar talent.  Check him out on Youtube and see if you don't agree.

If you like John Renbourn and Robin Williamson, look for their live album "Wheel of Fortune" recorded in 1993. With JR on the guitar and RW on harp, it is stunningly beautiful acoustic folk music.

 How about Neil Young's  "Harvest Moon", and Dwight Yoakam's "DwightYoakamAcoustic.net". Both are
 excellent!!!  It's old school Neil Young and just Dwight and his guitar along with some pretty darn good flatpicking.   bigrin
