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

I used to google image search stuff like 'sexy guitar', and 'hot guitar' and then scroll through several results pages to find maybe two images of shitty magazine covers with nude women posing with les pauls covering their genitals because I didnt know about clearing your search history and I thought I could explain away these searches if they were ever discovered as me just looking at cool guitars.

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)
But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.

John Renbourn, challenging but not impossible.
