A gunslinger is someone who is amazing on their instrument, but not in a robotic way (like steve vai). A gunslinger has a natural affinity for their instrument and plays with lots of feeling. Most of their songs build up to ragged, improvised solos. Usually they can't read music and they're not very polished because they taught themselves. Even though they can't play the same thing twice, they stand as the kings of their instrument. They usually build their legend around live concerts. They carry a metaphorical gun, hence gunslinger.
The first gunslinger was Charlie Parker, and the quintessential/most famous gunslinger is Jimi Hendrix. The song Johnny B. goode is about a gunslinger
