Best as to what?

There are mant posts pertaining to the "best of " but it"s all a mater of personal taste. The best of IMO is the creators, not imitators. True, we all try to copy a musical style we like and incorporate it into our playing and thats how thing evolve to what it is today. Anybody who is into music has to go way back and trace the roots of musical styles to fully understand where we are today. With out our musical forfathers, we wouldn't be here today. This is my opinion as a musican and recording artist.
