My favorite guitarists/performers - blues or not - are Stevie Ray Vaughan, Brian Setzer, The Strypes, Tab Benoit, George Thorogood, Tommy Emmanuel, KT Tunstall, and many of the good folks who play regularly at these meetups. :)
Sure, but don't expect Etta James or Susan Tedeschi.
A standard MIM Tele is my favorite to play and has also become my "main" guitar (thanks, BJ!). I also enjoy my Epiphone Alleykat, '77 Guild Bluesbird (thanks, Paul!), G&L Legacy HB Strat, Epiphone Wildkat, custom Carvin bass, and a 30-year-old Yamaha acoustic (thanks, Dad!). I can read music and grew up playing piano, but never enjoyed it enough to get very good at it. Currently dabbling on drums...
I started on guitar but ended up playing bass in a rock cover band. These meetups are a great way to learn, and you won't find a more supportive or friendlier group! :)
