Nice youtube find, dude could do the country shred.
I dove furthur down the youtube rabbit hole you opened and found Roy Clark doing country boy stand up comedy and geetar shreddin' on a Fender Jazzmaster.
Clark was a spectacular picker and FUNNY as hell @ his stage act even before the whole Hee-Haw dealio hit town & tube.
All of the 50's & 60's Nashville session players were highly respected by the Jazz musicians of that era I know and knew. Jimmy Bryant and Hank Garland both were favorites of Country as well as Jazz players.
From a studio/session guitarist perspective, Dann Huff is unsurpassed. Madonna, Whitney Houston, Whitesnake ('Here I Go Again'), Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, Lonestar,... just to name a few.
Warren Haynes and Joe Bonamassa; both great singers too!
On guitarist Dann Huff: I have been reading about this cat for years and 'tis generally agreed he's among the best session players of the mid 80s-mid 90s era. Quite versatile, as evidenced even by the "short list" of artists w/ whom he's worked you included in your post.
The Complete BBC Sessions

* He was @ the top of his game during his stint with this outfit. Just my two kopecks.
I haven't checked out the entire thread, but I'll throw Joe Pass into the ring if he hasn't been mentioned before.
Even if he has, I'll mention him again!
Joe Pass was a monster-sized talent. man, when that cat got seriously down @ his playin' in the "octaves" style --- whoa, look out!
Scott y'all should find and post sumthin', a video thingie, featuring Joe Pass @ this thread!
^^ it'll give the thread a bit more "class"...
Ask and ye shall receive...
Those are all great, Scott. I had kinda forgotten what a fine finger-pickin' stylist Pass was as it has been a while since I last watched him play. Top drawer stuff all the way. Thanks for the posts.
