Hey there,
I recently got back into playing guitar after a 8 year hiatus and would love some suggestions. I am looking for fun blues/jazzy/acoustic artists that are awesome to listen to as well as play. I have always been a harder music guy but with my renewed interest in guitar I have been trying to widen my musical tastes and knowledge. Thanks a ton!
Tosin Abasi/ Animals as leaders. Well this isn't acoustic by any means, but it'd be a cool thing to listen to if your into more progressive stuff. Some of the chording is very interesting and his use of hybrid picking/ slap bass technique is quite unique.

For acoustic I'd recommend bob kilgore, and Andy McKee if you wanna go nuts.
Kurt Rosenwinkel

...modes and scales are still useless.

If you're looking for some good acoustic stuff, try some Tommy Emmanuel. I'd reccommend his live album, to get a taste of his material/
Listen to jazz, it'll make you a better guitar player.

Whatever you do, stay creative
