These days, my favorite guitarist is Sonny Landreth. The greatest slide guitarist not named Allman. We have a mutual friend and I have been in his company several times. He is as pleasant and approachable as can be.
Here's an incendiary, live version of "Congo Square" that has Derek Trucks sitting in with Sonny and his band. Guitar wonks should watch Sonny's technique, using three fingers behind the slide to play full or partial chords. I've never seen anybody else play like that.
