Since this is a blues website, obviously it means best blues guitarist. Don't really know that in this category I could really place Derek above Robert Cray, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy or Jimmie Vaughan, all of whom I've seen multiple times. (Pretty hard to pick among those four, but I'd have to go with Clapton). Now if it were best slide player, I wouldn't hesitate to give Derek the nod, with Warren and Sonny Landreth right up there with him.

umm Derek smokes Robert Cray and Jimmie Vaughn easily. Clapton Landreth and Guy could stay with him on the Blues, but he beats all them on Jazz. Warren would beat all on blues. I think he's the purest white bluesmen since Duane.

Do we have a clarification here? This is for best overall player? If so, can't put up an argument on Derek as #1, based on the strength of his straight jazz playing along with his blues/rock work in the Brothers. I saw DTB in San Diego in February for the fourth time, more blown away than ever. He would be up there in an overall poll based on that format alone.

I said that to be funny. You quoted me twice. The two things i said kind of contradicted each other which is great. I didnt think would people would take what i said so seriously which is something i forget about here. I need to stop forgetting about that.

Well, of those on the list (those I've heard, anyway), Derek is clearly my favorite, so I had not problem voting for him. It's wierd that Warren wouldn't be on the list, though or Sonny Landreth oor Robben Ford.

It is a U.K. publication - I guess their usual suspects are slightly different than our usual suspects.

Interesting comments from the page with the above poll results -- Matt Schofield appears to be a big Derek Trucks fan:

Hi Trucker,

I quite agree. As a matter of fact, I voted for Derek Trucks (after the obligatory one for myself. Hey, even politicians start the voting off that way!) I think he's the best new player to come along in years (to my ears - what's best anyway?), and I'm a big fan of his playing. And Jimmie Vaughan, Buddy Guy and Robert Cray for that matter.
But I know the poll did get mentioned in the last mailing list send out by my record company, and in my website forum. So I guess there's no accounting for people's taste huh?
As for having too much time on my hands - I wish! Besides, I don't even win anything if I come first do I? Anyway, I'm off to practise now, so I can break out of that box once in a while :-) Cheers........Matt Schofield

Thanks Trucker. No offence taken. Seriously, I agree, Derek is awesome! He's absolutely the ONLY guitarist of my generation, that I know of, who actually has all the qualities I look for and admire in a truly great MUSICIAN. Not just a "guitarist". There's a big difference to me. It's far beyond just being a good guitarist, and that's what makes him one of the "best" current players to me. Personally, I find that very inspiring and encouraging that he is being successful in doing that today.
As for the old guard, several of those players are heroes and influences of mine, but we all know they can play by now, and they're well established, and quite comfortable with their career, but not necessarily "current". Perhaps that's what folks are relating to.
And, as for getting to jam with Derek, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get a chance when he's over on his European tour this year. You never know :-)

My vote was cast for Derek, however, there certainly are other guitar players who could have been included into the list.
