Anyone know anyone who plays like Bill Evans on the guitar?

I really like Jim Hall and Ted Greene ( Though he only has one album...), but was wondering if someone played more like him.
Does any one know of a guitarist who sounds similar?

The first one that comes to mind is Lenny Breau. If you ever get a chance to watch "Genius Of Lenny Breau", do yourself a favour and just do it. Every great guitarist from Steve Vai to Pat Metheny is in it talking about Lenny. Awesome movie. Its a must for any guitarist no matter what style you play.

Thanks a lot! I ordered Sid Jacobs book on playing Evans songs. And Lenny is awesome! I've heard of him before, but never really looked into him. What is a good first album to get by him that showcases his chord melody playing and isn't really expensive?

Most people consider the best Lenny Breau disc to be "Live at Bourbon St"

Thank you for suggesting Lenny Breau! I really enjoy his music and that documentary was fascinating. I ended up getting bourbon street. I am really motivate to practice now.
