Good list - I would just like to change the order so that we have:

1 Scofield
2 Pat Metheny

The others can fight for the 3rd spot! biggrin.gif

Scofield or Metheny wouldn't change Gab's order ohmy.gif wink.gif

I think that's a great list of 10 and absolutely a perfect place to start.

For extra credit I would add ...
Charlie Christian (the father of modern jazz guitar and be-bop pioneer)
Freddie Green (the master of swing rhythm guitar)
John McLaughlin (jazz/rock/ethnic fusion pioneer)
John Abercrombie
Ben Monder
Kurt Rosenwinkle
Baden Powell (early fuser of Brazillian and jazz)
George Van Eps (chord melody)
Ted Greene (chord melody)
Lenny Breau (overall unreal monster on the instrument)
Jimmy Bryant (hot rod country jazz)

These, and Gab's list, are all guys that followed their own path - and then advanced the course of jazz guitar. Or at least added another color to it. Innovators, not followers or imitators.

There's a ton more if you want a complete understanding but the above is a good 'second' list.

Two of my absolute favorites as well!

My two faves from your list, if I had to narrow it down, are Grant Green and Pat Martino.
*Though I think Wes Montgomery and Django are the two most important.
