This page is dedicated to the guitarists who, in decades past, advanced the conception of the instrument, some of whom are still pushing the envelope today. It will feature links to rare videos and reprinted articles as well as the occasional tribute feature. Feel free to recommend the players you feel paved the way when it comes to extending the limits of guitar.
