Ohio Fingerstyle Guitar Club Hall of Fame

Ohio and it's surrounding area has been the home of many wonderfully talented guitarists and educators of guitar over the years.  Some rose to the status of national celebrities while others were much more obscure staying at home to eek out a living as a professional guitarist.  No matter their fame, from time to time we will be paying tribute to those that gave so much to the art of guitar playing.
