#27? Fuck You, Rolling Stone.

I think what makes a good guitarist is versatility. If they’re one-dimensional (this means you, Steve Vai and Ingwe Malmsteen), I don’t think much of them. It’s cool to see an artist playing around with different mediums. Stevie Ray could just as easily jam on a slow jazz tune or rip on a 12-string accoustic as he could play electric blues; Hendrix too. Mark Knopfler though, is the epitomy of this. The man plays hard rock, blues rock, jazz rock, country and folky sounding ballads and does it all at the highest level. Anyone that can sit down and trade licks with Chet Atkins and not look a complete fool has got something going, that much is certain. Just watch and listen:
