Ian Moore. He's a complete package; great voice and great songwriting too.

Mick Moody....saw him playing with a band called Snafu way back in '75, years before he joined Whitesnake...still remember being impressed by his slide and lead playing....

Big Jim Sullivan....been around since time began

Paul Kossoff....brilliant blues guitarist, never heard anyone hold a note the way Koss did...incredible vibrato...

Mick Ronson...maybe not so obscure, every knows him from playing with Bowie, but very under-rated .....

Manny Charlton....great slide player, I seem to be the only person on these forums who remembers him these days....

:D :D :D

I don't have a wide variety of music I listen to, but my favorite is Lee Conner of Screaming Trees.

I prefer their older content because it's more experimental and got a beefed up psychadelic fuzz feel to it in my opinion.

plz im a noob

he's got a very famous album I'm unfamiliar with: Inspiration Information

I've just heard some of his rhythm and blues session work. unbelievable range of styles. he played on willie and the hand jive---that's kind of the only hit of his I know----tons of session work----very tasteful slurs, etc.

Dan Toler: Not completly obscure, but not world famous either. Good Player.

Ben Kweller: Not exactly stupendous guitar playing, he's more like an all around artist. Cool punk-rock-indie sorta artist... Good piano player too..

BTW: he's not emo, I abosolutly hate emo and today's "punk", etc. etc.

Many hundreds of people I've yet to discover... :)

I don't think my opinion is really worth anything. I play guitar and can't really tell if a guitar player is of great value or not (how sad is that) but I do know if I like listening to their music so, I'll add:

Mississippi John Hurt

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At the Drive-In, The Mars Volta)

It's not easy being green.... good thing I'm purple.

For a couple of obscure guitarists, I would say:

Marc Ribot, very avante garde plays Blues, Jazz and completely out of this world material. He is probably best known for playing on Tom Waits albums.

Adrian Belew, another man on a mission to transform the guitar sound into something it isn't. Best known for his part of the band King Crimson. Look for his guitar work on Laurie Andersons "Mr. Heartache" with William S. Burroughs.

Vic,

Right on with Mick Ronson, he's probably the one guitar player that really got me into guitars. I loved his playing on those early Bowie albums.

Paul Kossoff always loved his playing.

I think Paul has gotten alot more attention than Mick though.
