    - By Arend, Apr 18, 2011 12:00 AM

Ironically, however, such guitarists also tend to be supremely accomplished, possessing, as they do, the versatility and improvisational skills necessary to accommodate a wide range of styles. Some go on to make a name for themselves beyond session work, while others are content to maintain their roles as indispensable studio mavens. Below are ten players who represent both sides of that spectrum.
