    Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth come to mind too. My morning music randomizer chose The Sprawl, from the Daydream Nation album, today. :) Also an appropriate song for the deluge of “Black Friday” email in my Inbox.

    I'm tempted to go with Jeff's original nominee John Lennon, until I remembered "that guy from the Wrecking Crew".


    All of 'em exemplify the idea that the best lead guitarists have a solid foundation in rhythm.
    Glenn Campbell, James Burton...
    How DO you classify guys like that, who could do it all and all at the same time, to boot?

    But I'm nominating those guys for sheer versatility, breadth of style.
