I agree people always miss his playing from the context of songwriting, and using the studio as a compositional tool.

He was always very gracious to other guitarists, but took none of them seriously as the whole package(e.g. Clapton, Beck, Page, Green, etc.) because he felt they could not touch him rhythmically. He was proud of his years on the chitlin circuit, because it was his school. He learned technique, stagecraft, and showmanship.
