Just a few, either at the Red Fox Inn in Bethesda MD or the Cellar Door in Georgetown. Neither is a "concert" venue, but rather a small, intimate club (~200 seats, very close to the artists).
The Seldom Scene Emmylou Harris Linda Rondstadt Taj Mahal Starland Vocal Band JJ Cale The Country Gentlemen Doc and Merle Watson New Grass Revival Steve Goodman B.B. King Joni Mitchell Carly Simon John Prine Bonnie Raitt James Taylor Neil Young Jim Croce
I know I'm leaving out some, due to a hasty attempt at recollection.

Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs at a little village fair, on a stage low enough that a little boy could rest his chin on it and almost touch their toes. It was more than a few days ago.

Many more that I wanted to see but circumstances would not permit. The one that haunts me most was missing out on Led Zeppelin in 1979 during my senior year of high school. A friend offered me a ticket after his girlfriend broke up with him. But on such short notice, I couldn't get off of work to go n her place so he got somebody else. Why did I have to be so responsible as a 17 year-old?! I should have called in sick or just quit to go see Zeppelin! Hindsight is always 20/20!

I've been keeping a "bucket" list of guitar players I want to see before I die. I completed it this year when I recently saw Robin Trower.
Here's a list of guitar players I've seen live. Some more than once. Some are no longer with us.
Robin Trower Jeff Beck Buddy Guy Eric Clapton Carlos Santana David Gilmour Jimmy Page Jimi Hendrix Alvin Lee Steve Miller Pete Townshend Randy California Frank Zappa Keith Richards Andrés Segovia Al Di Meola Nils Lofgren Jorma Kaukonen David Crosby America (all three: Bunnell, Beckley & Peek) Neal Schon (with Santana and with Journey) Stevie Ray Vaughan John Fogerty
