Guitar virtuoso who excelled at an early age and went on to cover a wide range of styles, including blues, rockabilly and even some jazz. He had a particularly incredible right hand technique which made heavy use of hybrid picking with flatpick and fingers, and an amazing ear. Was nicknamed "the humbler" and "the world's greatest unknown guitarist". He tragically committed suicide in 1994.
X is amazing on the guitar, but he's no Danny Gatton (where X permits a remarkably large number of substitutions).
