Yes Sam, but believe me Blues guitar is almost a completely different technique to classical. One of my top modern guitarists is a guy called Brooks Williams, whose acoustic technique in my opinion is almost unrivalled; yet he isn't what you'd call world-famous.

Graha,

It's all plucking and strumming to a rookie like me, Graham Just checking out Brooks Williams, BTW, and he's most excellent; thanks for the intro.

Of course, the devil is a trickster. Hawking wanted to be a great guitarist and Johnson wanted to be a genius physicist.

There is a theory that Robert Johnson didn't die of strychnine poisoning, but was secretly removed from Mississippi to work on the fledgling Manhattan Project.......

This is going way off thread, Sam, but my wife and I run a guitar and singers' club in the Midlands. Players at all levels and from all branches of music perform. I have heard a very good blues player ask a classical guitarist, "How the hell did you do that?" and vice versa.

I'm glad you like Brooks Williams.

Graham

I myself am a player...since the age of 6...and I play many different styles, but I guess consider myself a "Jazz guitarist" however I have played with blues bands (traditional and the "modern play really fast" blues" ) rock bands, did studio work for Hip Hop and country and let me tell you.. every thing is different... and guitarists respect the hell out of one and other no matter the style (true guitarist.. as in people who truly make a study of the instrument, not just people who learn a few chords and start a band....and I am in no way putting that down.... that is great, and I wish more people did...some of my favorite music to listen to comes from that mentality for sure)
My Favorite guitar players to watch play are (and I mean watching video of them to just sit in awe of their technique)
1-Pepe Romero (if you never saw him please look him up...amazing Spanish guitarist!!!)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLtBJcaY1kw
2- Chet Atkins- I will never in my life get sick of watching him play!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3ZMoymgqbU
3- Stanley Jordan- just mind blowing!!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeooHiX4oH0
4- Pat Martino- this man gets the most SMOOTH sound!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COyOxqyEeTs
5- Ed Bickert- seriously.. he gets that sound from a Telecaster!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxPBvDYVX2w

there are so many more... but just a taste

Graham, I think that it illustrates the sad state of the world when I find myself thinking “has Graham made that up as a joke or is there a real conspiracy theory abour Robert Johnson and The Manhattan Project!”

I think Steven Rothery is a tragically underrated guitarist.
