    WHO do you think is the best guitarist ever? and the winner is ... HENDRIX! and SLASH!

    Just caught November Rain by Guns & Roses ... yeah that video with Slash with big hair doing a guitar solo in the windy church courtyard.

    Wondering whom you would regard as the best guitarist ever?

    Brian May, Eric Clapton, Joe Perry, Jimi Hendrix, Slash, Jimmy Page, Prince, Carlos Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughn, David Gilmour, Kirk Hammett, Tony Iomi, Eddie Van Halen are all contenders.

    Feel free to post the youtube links so we can enjoy the experience.

    lol sorry, was doing the guitarist list and accidentally cut-pasted Aerosmith
    slip of the chord :whistling:

    francis dunnery
    chris cheney
    brian setzer

    all very under rated players

    Tough call but my fave will always be Slash:evil:

    sorry but hendrix pah any one can play like he did thats why so many imitate him in tribute bands possibly niles and bernard from chic or johnny marr even joe walsh

    fave doesnt always mean the best tho buddy

    here is what i think are the top five
    Yngwie Malmsteen
    Danny Gatton
    Gary Lucas
    Lenny Breau
    Joe Satriani



    obviously you have your legends like jimi hendrix, eric clapton, stevie ray vaughan, bb king, buddy guy, steve vai, jimmy page, duane allman etc...
    theres alot of good talent out there now though too: derek trucks, warren haynes, john mayer, mike mccready, john frusciante...
    its tough to pick one single player who's the best because people have different strengths and play different types of music...

    i play guitar so i could also be included

    or prince billy bragg or gilmore

    Kirk Hammett. Rhandy Rhodes, Jake E.Lee, Alex Scholnik.......soooooooo many
