ditto......sometimes what you don't play is just as important as what you do...the "pauses" between the notes distinguish an eloquent and tasteful passage from one chock full of razzle-dazzle. Sure, playing a billion notes within the span of a second has its place at times, but the emotive and expressive phrases seem to make more of a lasting impression. The late Duane Allman and Robert Cray come to mind in the blues genre....there's others in other genres that would exemplify elegant playing as well...someone in another thread just recently mentioned George Harrison's guitar playing as being underrated - evident after the melodic work he did on Abbey Road (and elsewhere) having withstood the test of time.
