Great Guitarists is a series of posts on my blog, Guitar Talk.  It is my intention to present influential guitarists in chronological order giving the student a historical  perspective of the musicians that made history. Five guitarists from each decade, beginning in 1930, and ending with our contemporaries, will be discussed. Please feel free to post comments.
