Hey guys, I need some new interesting guitarists to check out. I've been listening to all the greats like Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, Paco de Lucia and Tommy Emmanuel and I love them (how could I not lol) but that's basically where my knowledge of acoustic/classical guitarists ends. I especially like mystical, dark moods and weird chord progressions (songs like Orient Blue for example), but also great, catchy melodies. I don't really like those guys who play only with tapping, with lots of effects or with their feet or whatever, I'm looking for players that play the usual, 'traditional' way - with pick or fingerstyle. Also I would maybe prefer something simpler than Al Di Meola and something that's not in DADGAD or some alternative tuning, so I could play it as well (I'm too lazy to learn DADGAD chord shapes).

Looking forward to your recommendations! ))
Cheers

There shall be a stop to this madness. The battle is not over. My tasty licks aren't going anywhere.

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!

The usual routine is to ban these accounts. I hope in the future, one day, the collective hive-mind will be able to trace down the identity of the person(s) who coded this spam-advertisement, and make first contact with them. Learn about them. Their dreams and desires as children, and what they were reduced to in maturity. Do they care for music? For love? Perhaps it's all a cryptic message sent by an alien looking for connection...

He's asking about artists, not guitars...

Here are a few my favorites:

Pierre Bensusan (my #1)
Phil Keaggy
John Williams (classical)
Xuefei Yang (classical and traditional chinese)
Antonio Forcione
Jeff Peterson (hawaiian slack key)
Antoine Dufour (he's the most "normal" of the overdone percussive fingerstyle players, IMHO)
My God, it's full of stars!
