...and could take only one guitar oriented cd to listen to, which one would it be...and why? I think I would take Al DiMeola's "Elegant Gypsy". If you've never heard this, it's well worth checking out. Also there are some great perfomances from Jan Hammer and Steve Gadd, and Mediterranean Sundance is an awesome acoustic duet with Paco DeLucia. The muted picking on both electric and acoustic guitar is amazing.
