Hi to all contributors in this great thread, thanks for starting it!
S&F for you.
I listened to all the pieces and for me there was only one outstanding: John Butler.
All the rest have an outstanding technique but sound a bit mechanical, or show-off.
John Butler sounds great, natural and very musical to me.

The Django post reminded me that no one has posted Robert Johnson. For anyone who doesn't know his story, he is the King of Mississippi Delta Blues.
Legend has it he sold his soul to the Devil at a crossroad near Dockery Plantation at midnight. It is also rumored that he dropped people to their
knees in tears when he played. He died at 27, making his impact on music even more incredible. It's worth researching if your interested, and is
still a very open subject as his life was poorly documented. There's a large foundation dedicated to researching his life, and a few people that knew
him are still alive.
I grew up listening to Robert Johnson (maybe we need Ry Cooder in here too?) even though the recordings of him are so poor and deteriorated they just
oooze the blues! Also, Losing You has been a favourite of mine for the last year or so! So I tip my hat to your music taste! I'll add some more of
my favourites shortly, just some bills to sort out first!
Also, that ^ Jon Gomm song above (excellent btw), the talent to play and get the tuning spot on! Maddening! It takes me 10 minutes to tune my damn
Thanks for the compliment! I listen to a huge variety of genres, and my girlfriend only likes a couple of the bands I do, so its nice to share with
people like you. On a side note, I've been on a Hall and Oates kick lately. I don't know what the general consensus is about them because I'm only
20, but I've been belting there stuff in the car lately...feels like a guilty pleasure.
Oh and I haven't gotten the cool, casual, timely tuning down either.
