Candyman(inactive) joe pass, why is he the greatest guitarist (60* d) RE: joe pass, why is he the greatest 28 Dec 03

The only folk or bluegrass guitarist that could approach his level in jazz might be Pat Donahue. Donahue didn't choose to go that way but I believe he could have. He is one of the few folk stylists that I can think of that has a grasp of harmonic complexity that jazz requires.


What you say about Pat Donahue, whose work I'm not very familiar with, I would say about Tony Rice. And certainly, for pre-bebop jazz styles, I would also include Guy Van Duser.
