Jerry Reed, Roy Clark, and that guy called Chet Atkins.

And damn of course, Tony Motolla.

I don't care much for country music.

SRV. He changed my life. I also really liked a guy named Ty Tabor prior to discovering SRV. Hendrix was my first "favorite" and have had some good visits with him at his grave in Renton. I met Buddy Guy once and it was beyond cool. I was 18 and he had a good talk with me. To be standing and talking to the man that Hendrix said was the greatest ever was a real treat.

And a man who doesn't get enough credit is Prince. That guy is a darn good guitar player (another Buddy Guy/Jimi Hendrix disciple). Buddy said that his son was way into Prince (When Doves Cry), and Buddy said "If you like him... check out Hendrix." The kid listened to it and then started studying Jimi. He came back to his dad crying about a week later and said, "Dad.... you never told me you were good. Hendrix said he played because of you and you were his hero, and Prince played because of Hendrix... why didn't you tell me?" Buddy is that kind of a man. Cool and just so unassuming. I'm glad he's getting the fame he's due.

If you haven't seen SRV play and felt what that little man with the big hands was capable of, check out the "Live at the El Mocambo" DVD. It will convert even the most cynical. Especially when he gets out his red Strat and plays "Lenny" for his then wife. Hauntingly beautiful.

Joe Perry and Angus are my faves by a mile. But Vai is my vote for "best ever." Dude is just superhuman, he was given a gift AND busts his ass.

For leads within a song its KK Downing (always like his style better then Tipton) David Gilmour (pure class) Paul Leary (just odd) EVH? Randy Rhoads? Dime? Jimi? Blackmore? I love them all.

For riffs its gotta be Tony Iommi or Greg Ginn

Just pure talent? Buckethead

I can't believe I left of Zakk Wylde. He is an amazing player. Amazing guy as well. I could listen to his stuff all day, and many times do.

David Gilmour. Most talented? No. But he could squeeze more complex emotions out of an electric guitar than anyone I've heard.

Mayer's also left a trail of Hollywood and Grammy starlets in his wake too. Yeah, Vai's technically the "one", but Mayer has the intangibles.

I'd pay a bean to smell his junk...that's the caliber women he's "dated".

Jimi.

The amazing thing about his body of work is no matter how deep you dig, from the big budget studio stuff to him slumming around the clubs in New York and audience members picking it up with tape recorders, it was just so fluid like he was speaking a language with it's own internal logic and rules, complete unto itself.

That's the best way I can explain what I experience listening to his music. It's awe inspiring to me.

Not necessarily in that order. Dependent on mood.

To hard to pick just one. Last few years it's been Jonny Lang. In a Rolling Stone piece, Buddy Guy said " the kid plays so well I'd like to break his fingers" context being important.

To me there's no question it's Jimi. No one could better express emotion with a guitar than him. No one could literally put feelings to a fretboard than him.

I'd take SRV next and then grandfather of rock Chuck Berry.

Also a big fan of Healey.

If I HAD to choose only one, which I most definitely don't want to do, it'd be Dave for me too and for the reasons you mentioned. He creates such atmosphere and feel with the instrument. He is my all-time favorite.



But I also love, Jimi, SRV, Iommi, Lifeson, Carlos, Clapton, Page, Trower, Beck, Duane, Blackmore, etc.

Would be remiss in not giving a special mention to the late, great Jeff Healey. One of my all-timers as well.

Really tough call. Satch is right up there, tied with Chet Atkins. Different styles, but damn those guys can/could play!

Lot of great guitarists already mentioned, but I should probably throw Mark Knoffler into the mix. Like Gilmour, he can squeeze a hell of a lot more out of a guitar than just the sound.

Knoffler is a great player, never liked Dire Straits, but I picked up Ragpickers Dream and was hooked !

Joe Satriani.

But in a very close second, John Petrucci. I know most people say he doesn't have "feeling", but to me, some of his solos are amazing (Peruvian skies to name just one)

Theres quite a few I could mention, for many reasons.
Alex Lifeson: He brings so much all around talent...highly under rated in my book
The Great Satchmo: Listen to any of his material and it speaks for itself
Steve Vai: So above
Jimmy P: acoustical, electric, songwriter....probably the best of all time in my book
Lindsey Buckingham: Another all around great guitarist. Great song writer, Like Alex..highly under rated
Eric Johnson: Right there with Steve and Joe
Eddie VH: Better in his younger years for the stuff he was doin....but I don't imagine hes gotten any worse....lol

He doesn't do them as much in his newer stuff. He's really embraced a ton of different stuff. His version of America the Beautiful on the acoustic is mesmerizing. He is more into chunky stuff and then going off on Hendrix like progressions. Black Label Society is great music. He throws one in now and then for fun, but it's not his go-to move as much. He'll be much appreciated later on I think.

Black Label Society is kind of like Steve Morse with the Dixie Dregs. More music for musicians than music for the masses, but it is very tight and fun to listen to.

Speaking of which... Morse is a good one that doesn't get mentioned much anymore. I have a friend who is a virtuoso guitar player, but has relegated himself to making millions writing songs for Disney because he never got his big break (he made more money in 12 hours off of one Hannah Montana song than in 20 years combined with his own band... but I digress). His big joke was that the "Dregs" were THE band if you wanted to be a guitar player in his heyday. So whenever anybody would say, "Hey man, are you into the Dregs?" He'd fire back with, "Not really (even though he was a huge Morse fan), but I've really gotten into this band that is amazing... they are called the Monkees." He listed the different reactions he got, and the results were often hilarious, to the points that guys would challenge him to fistfights.

I know of the Dregs, my guitar strumming Uncle spoke of their legend.

I shall buy you a schooner of ale someday, Shark.



/ Hey, Radish, can I borrow the company card. We will invite Roland, too. Promise.

Yngwie is one of the most boring players I've ever heard. Ultra-talented but my god man, tap the brakes now and then and let things breath. No soul, just a ton of notes.

How about Carlos Santana?

I love that hardly anyone reads my posts.


You cant blame us. You're old.

Ummmmmm, no. It has far more to do with who you guys are than who I am.

I have always thought that yeah the guys who shred to bits are good and all but it has to be music and listenable! When a solo hits a ridiculous level then its unlistenable.

Hendrix, Page, Santana and Frusciante are my picks.

I like their identifiable signature sounds.

SRV was the magician at getting the most out of a few notes. Hendrix was way ahead of everyone and this was in the 60's.

Vai and Satch play a lot of notes, however, they throw in amazing phrasing and sound tricks that nobody else can even comprehend.

Case in point = Malmsteen, super talented, but no phrasing.

This is very Santana'esque IMO. Love it
