I've seen a lot of threads about great guitar players, but somehow nobody ever mentions Paco de Lucia. Need proof of his awesomeness? Here you go:

Paco de Lucia- Almoraima

Am I the only one who thinks he doesn't get his due as one of the best guitar players ever?

yeah he's one of the greatest guitar players of all time, but I don't think flamenco is very big on this board.

The Myth: Mesa amps were given to us by God, and sound as such.
The Truth: True. God is the CEO and Jesus does QC at Mesa...yup.

Almost everyone on this forum is into metal so not many people are into him. But yeah he is one of the best ever.

I've heard his named mentioned many times. especially when talking about Jazz and Pat Metheny.

But yeah, almost everyone here play electric guitar, a-guitar players are naturally not as well-known or revered.

I think I've gained so many gay points reading the past 3 pages of this thread that if I gave another man a blowjob I'd actually lose some.

He is cool, he looks like a mixture of the vocalist in Sweet and Reverend Horton Heat.
...What!?

I'm spanish, so I've known about him for just about ever. Also check out "Entre Dos Aguas" which is just fantastic.

I also saw him play live last year. It was at a venue where you could see the screen from outside the fences. So we just hung out outside and drank and watched him play. It was amazing. He was playing with a bassist who had a 6-string bass and at one point in time this guy started to play the bass in the flamenco style, just as if it were a flamenco guitar. It was ridiculous.
