He was a well known session musician prior to stardom.  Even stood in for Brian Wilson with the Beach Boys for a short time.  I understand some of his guitar work is in Pet Sounds.  Another guitar player superbo is John Fogerty.  I saw him abt 20 years ago and was amazed at his skills.

Forgive me if I have this wrong but I believe no less an authority than Chet Atkins made a comment something like, "GC makes very difficult progressions and timing changes look like child's play and he plays comfortably around a sloppy singers ". Note Chet Atkins is on Rolling Stone's top 25 greatest guitar players ever list.....IIRC @#21.
