I don't know what it is about guitarists, but many of the greats have a first name that starts with the letter J. Maybe it's a secret club, or maybe your personality is partially formed by your first name. Whatever it is, there's a whole lot of great musicians that I've loved who have this particular characteristic. Enjoy!
