Jorma Kaukonen

by John Pickering
(Pentrecwrt, Wales, UK)

Lead guitarist of Jefferson airplane and Hot Tuna. He not only played some of the best guitar pieces of the 1960's with the airplane, but then changed course mid carreer and played some of the best blues. Brilliant with either electric or acoustic, from heavy rock based to hesitation blues. Never really mentioned amongst guitarists, but deserves to be up there amongs the greats.
