    Well, I could argue that he wasn't / isn't underrated, just died way too soon. What an amazing and bright guitarist, so so sad.

    Maybe it's just here in Australia that the name doesn't come up much, but discovering Keb Mo has been a revelation. Particularly his slide playing.
    If you want to hear a great guitarist ripping on a Gretsch - Chris Cheney from The Living End is worth a listen.
    Some other good Aussie guitarists: Johnny Diesel (just 'Diesel' these days) and Ian Moss (both Solo and with Cold Chisel).
    These guys aren't really underrated in Australia, but in the grand scheme of world music I would say they are.

    Mike Hermans too. There are some amazing players out there doing demos who just amaze me. This guy's a new one for me - wow!

    I love Jerry Miller's playing with Eileen Jewell. Her song "I Remember You" is a good example.

    Love Wilco Johnson.
    He was diagnosed with an inoperable cancer and was given less than a year to live. He drew-up his bucket list and made a documentary about his experiences ticking all the things off. If you can find it the I urge anyone to watch "The Ecstasy of Wilco Johnson". There's a twist that blows your mind. This is real life people. You could not make it up.

    Does Tuck Andress have more funk, R&B oriented music, like the video below (my introduction to him)? I'd live to hear him play more lovely music.
