Notes: In the conclusion to the Guitar Gods special, favorites Neil Young and Jimmy Page make their reappearances. Santana and Stevie Ray Vaughan both get in a word or two. The awesome guitar work of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts is showcased, as well as the less appreciated Robby Krieger, who certainly had his moments. I remember that I was reluctant to play any Eddie Van Halen, since I've just never been into his scene that much, but I relented at the last minute and played his magnum opus, Eruption, and the song it leads into.

Throughout the four parts of this special, I definitely played a lot of great guitar songs, including some of the very best. But if I were to do another Guitar Gods show today, I would definitely include the likes of Michael Bloomfield, Peter Green, Harvey Mandel, Roy Buchanan, more Robin Trower, Joe Bonamassa, Eddie Hazel, maybe some Ted Nugent, and who knows who else.
