That is some great guitar music. At this point in my life I am a little partial to the Hawaiian guitarist Ledward Kaapana. There are so many different genres of music that my idea of who is "best" changes often. I see they are honoring JJ Cale. He influenced a lot of people including Waylong Jennings of country music fame. In one of Waylon's songs he pays homage to some of his friends including JJ Cale.
J. J. Cale's my hero, best I ever heard
But you gotta sing a little louder, hoss, 'cause I can't hear the words
Some folks call it rock and rol, others call it blues
But I detect a country soul, when I seen his cowboy shoes
And it's alright
It may not be right, but it's alright
George might show up flyin' high, if George shows up at all
But he may be, unconsciously, the greatest of them all
From the Beatles and me in Nashville, to the billies and the Rolling Stones
If we all sang like we wanted to, we'd all sound like George Jones
