Andres Segovia Hands Down Period. Robert Johnson#2
Andres Segovia is the only True Maestro or Master. He Put Guitar on the World Map. From a Pure Talent Standpoint He Crushes all. His ability to Teach was second to none. Segovia got more People in his lifetime to pickup a Guitar & play than any single individual Guitar Player in History.
Jimi Hendrix does not belong on the Top 10. Alot of Guitarist better than him, especially classically.
Robert Johnson altho in his time they say short willie brown was the better
musician, albeit no recordings of him. Robert Johnson is the Man. His off timing while actually playing in time was something else. 90+% of Todays Popular Music Exist because of RJ. Thank God for the Mississippi Delta Blues. Also RJ Learned from a guy Ike Zinermon. No Recordings of Ike. Would've Loved to have heard the man who taught RJ. Ike must've been something else.
