Well, I think that though many make the obvious connection with Clarence White -- and surely without White he might never have headed the direction he did, without a doubt, Tony Rice is one of the most inventive, tasteful flatpickers to every put his arms around a D-28. There may only be three other guitarists in history who have even come close to inspiring more people to pick up acoustic guitar: Doc Watson, Norman Blake, and in good CYA fashion, one guitarist to be named later.

In my collection I have nearly everything the man has ever recorded. He is a guitar god.
