Re: Best guitarist ever?

My favorites guitarists are:

Greg Howe
Jason Becker
Richie Kotzen
Paul Gilbert
Yngwie Malmsteen
Steve Vai
Joe Satriani
Joey Tafolla
Theodore Ziras
Matthias IA
Shawn lane
Borislav Mitic
Edward van Halen
Chris Impellitteri

AND I JUST LOVE these unknown guys:

Angi Schilero with his album White Lady ( if you like the guitarists above, you will love him)

Agharta with his album "Shades of Secrets". Agharta is actually Martin de Boer ( a fellow dutchman ) who just plays brilliantly.

Recently i kinda like the new shredder Matthew Mills. I reaaaally like his sound.

Re: Best guitarist ever?

Dave Murray of Iron Maiden has always been one of my personal favorites. I wouldn't say he's the "best" but the dude rules.

Versatility- Satch
Tone- E. Johnson
Neoclassic- Yngwie/Tony Macalpine
Technique- Petrucci/Vai
Jazz- Matheny/Holdsworth/DiMeola
Melodic/ Rythm- G Harrison/P Townsend/Dickie Betts/L Buckingham
Overall Influencial- Jimi
Classic Rock Guitarists (Old School)- Page/Clapton/Beck (still relevant)
Slide- Allman
Acoustic- Kotke/Jorma
Most "Out There"- Zappa/Adrian Belew


Well, all that might equal .02 worth.

I don't get it. He sounds out of tune everytime I see him play, and he can barely hit a lick. He has this "cultish" type following.
It's because he (Neil Young) writes great songs. I'll admit the guy is less than polished but he makes a good sound. He was one of my first influences but not really as a guitar player, just the songs themselves. I'd spin "After The Goldrush" everday when I was a kid.

Re: Best guitarist ever?

As far as songwriting ability and musicality, I have to hand it to Satch. Vai has some stuff that is absolutely amazing (The Riddle, Boston Rain Melody, Whispering a Prayer), but Satriani is the most consistently amazing guitarist I've ever heard.

If you're talking about technical ability, I've got to go with Shawn Lane. I don't think anyone has ever blended technical proficiency and musicality the way he did. Even when he's playing 25nps, it still sounds beautiful.
