He was worshipped by guitarists around the world, but you'd never know it from talking to him.<p>"I don't really have all that much technique anyway, so I try to the best with what I have you know," he said to me earlier this year.<p>The best he had influenced half a century of jazz musicians, earned him the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master honor and widely designated him as one of the greatest jazz guitarists of all time.
