Django Reinhardt

PBS recently showed a documentary on Django Reinhardt and Jazz / Blues guitar. He's an amazing guitarist - especially since his fingering hand was burned badly & he could only use 2 fingers.

What is it with guitarists lacking fingers - Phil Keaggy is missing a finger

Yes indeed - a co worker introduced this to me in the Spring. There are some very good 'Django' clips on You Tube. I would say even better.

Amazing how he can take the lead with two fingers!!!

By the way - Les Paul was another you can add to your list.
