GUEST,Murray MacLeod World's greatest guitarist on video (50) RE: World's greatest guitarist on video 30 Sep 00

Ok it is ordered as of now. However, I have to say that classical guitarists, no matter how prodigious theeir technique may be, lack something (for me) simply because they are interpreting somebody else's dots. Guitarists like Clapton, Buchanan and MacManus are speaking from their own souls.

I wopuld just like to add here (for kendall's benefit, since he mentioned Segovia) that McManus and Segovia have a lot in common, since they both took a repertoire that had not previousl;y been considered guitar material, and made it their own. In Segovia's case the classical compositions of Bach, and many Spanish composers, in McManus case, the great pipe and fiddle compositions of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands. Both revolutionaries, in their own way.
