    I almost feel like a heretic for posting about a guitar player here on TB, but a buddy and I went to see Doyle Dykes in concert last week at a local guitar shop and... holy mackerel! The guy makes a Taylor sound like an orchestra. He's a Chet Atkins-esque fingerstyle player. Incredible musician, check him out if he comes by. (And check out how busy his tour schedule is!)

    I've been to three of his clinics, met his kids, bought his albums. He is a real down-home guy, always willing to stand around and chat after the show. It's a real pleasure to see him perform. If you other guys get the chance, go see him.
