For that matter, haven't heard anybody mention Tommy Emmanuel either.
I think I mentioned him somewhere in the players forum. I'm more electric oriented in my listening and playing habits, but he is one acoustic player who is pretty mind-boggling and I find I listen to him more often than the others I have. Not only is he an amazing guitarist, but he's pretty damn funny too.
Speaking acoustic players, maybe I should throw the following into the pot too: Adrian Legg, Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, Michael Hedges, Django Reinhard, Paco De Lucia, Chet Atkins.
