One artist I admire most, not only in their creativity, but also in technical ability is Django Reinhardt. In the 25 years he was active, he essentially invented a whole new sub genre of jazz and playing styles. When Django was 18, he was badly burnt in a caravan fire and as a result, lost most use of his third and forth fingers on his left hand. This however seemed to be a blessing in disguise as he had to relearn how to play the guitar in a whole new way, creating his unique style. Being a jazz musician in the early to mid 90's, he used acoustic guitars with steel and nylon strings with oddly shaped sound holes taking away more bass than traditional guitars, and giving them an almost staccato sound.
