I just got the news that last of the three guitarists that have influenced, inspired and motivated me has died. Most have not heard of these giants but you have heard them and their music. Leon Rhodes passed away at home last Saturday. I have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours learning and listening to this man. Watched video after video of him copying his style and technique. What a player. I am so grateful that his playing lives on video and audio. Even though he is gone, I will still be learning from the recordings he left.
