guitar

over the past few days i’ve been thinking of which guitar players have influenced my own guitar playing and ear. either through a sound, or a style of playing, or a tone, or something. here they are presented roughly in order of when i first heard them. i’m putting this out there, just to purge it from my mind. look them up, listen to their music, read about them.
