I think it all depends on the type of music - rock, etc... well I think mark Knopfler was good in his days - something natural.

Santana - talented and has been around for years

Bo Diddley - the king of guitars including his homemade guitars and "Lucille" his favourite.

Chuck Berry - the dirty old pervert who really made the guitar sing with his raw sound

Mark Knoffler - must have been the parachute pants and head band

Me - I learnt to play 5 chords and could play hundreds of songs (joke people).

Jim Hendrix - the only dude who played a right handed guitar - left handed (upside down) and had the `fro and head band to match.

Eddie Cochran - legend of the Gibsons .............. sadly killed in 1960.

Trevor Filewood - the religious nut who sang songs of praise in the 1980's for about 2 minutes in the afternoon after school on Channel 7 I think. He looked like my old science teacher and we used give him crap alot too. (Ok this is sarcasm boys and girls)

well, this is easy...

Yngwie Malmsteen FTW!!!

Paco De Lucia is also one of my favourites... totally different genre, though.

This guy seems to be off the radar , but in my opinion best guitarist of all time is JOE WALSH. He has many albums and his instrumentals are priceless , not to mention the flair he gave THE EAGLES . I think another awesome guitarist that I have not seemed mentioned has to be JAMES YOUNG from STYX. I know James Young does not rank with some of the people mentioned but hes still a great guitarist. Joe Walsh is number 1 in my opinion. Ok next post will shoot me down lmao .

Pulse_Meddle and Late seemed to have been pretty comprehensive.
mike kennelly, frank zappa impossible guitar parts, (its where he met vai)
Jan Ackerman, focus
Nancy Wilson , heart
Brian robertson,
fast eddie clark,
slava gregorian,


glad to see some of the quiet masters not for gotten, like belew, trower, reinhart.

base players, someone mentioned billy sheene, even billy acknowledges there has never been anyone like jaco pastorius.

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.

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!

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?
