I would say Gregg Allman, but he plays guitar as well as keyboards.

Jimmy Hall and Chuck Leavell top my list.

Ah the glockenspiel, how could I overlook that one.

I'll go with Lionel Hampton on the vibes.

The clarinet/saxophone of Anat Kohen is pretty pleasing and other than Benny Goodman I'd say she's my pick on the clarinet.

Accordian, my son'r girlfriend Audrey.

the saw, some guy I saw in downtown Ft Worth a few years ago...

Ukelele. Bill Tapia...101 years old and cute as can be.

Matt Abts. Favorite that is not a string instrument player.

I can't believe I forgot Levon Helm, drums, and Bruce Katz, keyboards, and,
Jay Collins, sax......It looks like my favorites are not guitar players!

Except for
Tinsley Ellis, now there is a guitar player I love! And the Hayseed guitar players,
of course!!! Love those guys.

And one of my all time favorite piano players: Jerry Lee Lewis!!!

Audrey kicks some major ass.

Glockenspiel?

I thought Audrey played that also. But my favorite would still be Glocken who could spiel like no one else.
