Darn, beat me to it. Tommy is a Chet Atkins “Certified Guitar Player” also.
Some I'd add to the list are:
Peter Frampton, Albert Lee, Skunk Baxter, Larry Carlton.

Yup.....Tommy not only took the baton from Chet, he took it to 11. No one even close.

I had the honor of sitting across from Tommy Emmanuel and Chet Atkins practicing for the “Chet Atkins Appreciation Society's” concert. I kept my mouth shut and my guitar quiet. One look at the songs Atkins played on would put him on the R&R list for anyone with a brain. James Burton too. I think the list is flawed because many of the ones that voted on it have a limited depth of knowledge and experience.
