Listen to "Saturday Night in San Francisco" with Paco De Lucia, John McLauchlan and Al Di Meola...very hard to beat! Other than those guys Django Reinhardt, Hendrix, Vai and Zappa. Angus Young is no slouch by any means and I saw when I was down in Sydney that Roderigo y Gabriela are coming to Sydney and Melbourne (damn! No Bris concerts). They were in a heavy metal band in Mexico City but now they play the same tunes unplugged Flamenco style...very entertaining.

Whatever your Rock genre, i think some of the greatest guitar riffs created were by Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore, Tony Iommi, Jimmy Hendrix, Chuck Berry, BB King to name a few.

You only have to look at when Blackmore wrote "Smoke on the Water" such a simple riff and i would doubt that any guitarist these days, would'nt have played it as part of their repitwa.

These guitarists are legends in their own right and some of their long solo's i still enjoy listening to.

Agreed, Blackmore was (is) a legend. Nobody mentioned one of my fave guitar bands Thin Lizzy! Phil Lynnot and Scott Gorham I think were rhythm and lead.

Alex Lifeson
Steve Howe
David Gilmour
James Young and Tommy Shaw complimented each other very well in the old Styx days
Rik Emmett, formerly of Triumph. Not as well known as others but a phenomenal guitarist. Go to YouTube and check out some of his accoustic solos. Wow!

A couple of years ago, Joe Satriani was in concert in Toronto, which is only a two hour drive from where I live.
About 10 of my friends and I wanted to go sooooo bad, after all, the man is a legend!
And so, with great excitement, we all started to make plans for the big night.
Babysitters lined up for those who needed them, checking out which would be better,
grabbing motel rooms in the area, or pulling straws for being the designated drivers, etcetera...

Until we discovered that the cheapest seats were $575.00... *sigh*
(Canadian & Aussie dollars are close to par)
...another dream bites the dust...

As some gutarists from the last 20 years, I think Peter Buck (REM), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), deserve a mention. Jose Gonzalez? Jack White?
