Paul Simon's guitar playing 'needs greater praise'
Paul Simon is one of the most underrated acoustic guitar players in the world of music, it has been claimed.
According to Gibson contributor Bryan Wawzenek, Simon has become best known for his overall songwriting skills and his ability to switch between genres with ease.
But the commentator said that less praise is typically bestowed upon his acoustic guitar playing, "perhaps because it is so perfectly suited to his songs that people think about the song as a whole and not the components".
Mr Wawzenek added that the musician's style, which was partly influenced by British guitarist Davey Graham, is best demonstrated on some of the early Simon and Garfunkel folk songs.
Others to have featured in the list so far include Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell.
