    Ray Gomez is a great guitarist, and he's still productive and recording.

    I feel the two best blues guitarists playing today are Joe Bonamassa and Derek Trucks. Absolutely outstanding guitar players. Joe Bonamassa can really rock. He gets a little heavy at times for my taste, but that is just me. A very good example of his work is "Dust Bowl". A great blues album from Derek Truck is "Already Free".

    Of course if you are talking "Old School" you can't go wrong with B.B. King or Buddy Guy.

    Other great blues artists and guitar players are (in no particular order):

    Lonnie Brooks
    Walter Trout
    Jimmy Thackery
    Tommy Castro
    Johnny Winter
    Tinsley Ellis
    Bill Perry
    Luther Allison
    Bernard Allison
    Albert Collins
    Coco Montoya
    Lamont Cranston Band
    Tab Benoit

    You can't go wrong with any of these!

    I second most of the suggestions here and I'm a life-long Peter Green fan (try his Splinter Group recordings). I've seen Derek Trucks live several times in small venues (don't miss Songlines). I remember being introduced to a young Joe Bonamassa (love his Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House) by the Tom Dowd video "The Language of Music", and loved Jonny Lang (who seemed to start out at his best and only got worse . . . ). But I've also enjoyed Mato Nanji and saw him live twice years ago. He blew me away. A bit of an erratic body of work which I'll admit to not following too closely recently but his early work with his family members in the American Indian group Indigenous was surreal. Think SRV and Hendrix together. Read at least the first bit of this interview: http://guitar.com/articles/mato-nanji-indigenous-blues-master-making

    I look forward to hearing other suggestions and comments on Mato Nanji from others who admire his skills. :thmbsp:

    Try some JR. Brown or Charley Bingham of the Lamont Cranston/Hoopsnakes fame.

    Thanks,

    +1. Add John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters & Eric Clapton.

    One of the greatest thing about blues guitar players (at least for me) is that they all have their individual sound.
