James Hetfield

Not a lead guitarist but the guy is metronomic on rhythm and has crafted some of the most epic riffs and songs.

I don't have on particular favorite and a lot of the guys I like have already been mentioned.

One that hasn't is Buck Dharma.

Holy crap! That Les Paul could shred! Man, somebody needs to feed that twinkie sounding guitar in the vid through some distortion and a flanger and he'd sound like Yngwie! :D Impressive!

As far as my faves...

Eddie Van Halen. He ushered in a new era of shred, leaving those before him in his wake. And introduced everyone to the "hammer on"
Satriani. Took it to another level. A guitar players guitar player...
Vai. Just awesome.
Al Di Meola. Technical Spanish-style freak.
Alex Lifeson. Emotional, POWER guitar with his own custom chords... (biased Rush fan)
Randy Rhodes. Why oh Why did you get in that damn airplane??
Glenn Tipton. Shredder for the greatest metal band EVER! KK was pretty good too! (Biased JP fan)
Jimi Page. A pioneer and unbelievable player...

I like Hendrix, but I think his legend has made him better than he was. He was amazing, don't get me wrong, but you don't think Jimi's eyes would have popped out of his head if he could have seen Satch or Eddie play? C'mon.... But he's the guy that got the ball rolling for the next age of rock/metal, so much respect...

I could go on and on like many of you here, but these are the ones off the top of my head.

Seems to be all rock players here.

Roy Clark, one of the finest.

Tony Motolla another, played for all types of genures for many years.

And a couple of the finest ever of any kinds of music are Jerry Reed & the incomparable Chet Atkins.

This one is tough for me. I used to hold the likes of Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, and to a lesser degree, Steve Vai, on a pedestal, heralding them as the most technically gifted guitarists to have ever lived. That may even be true, but these days my musical tastes have evolved and I find their style to be rather mechanical, lacking in emotion or intensity. There is definitely a "masturbatory" quality to the works of uber technical musicians, such as the aforementioned. I can still enjoy their music, but only in small doses.

I think Dave Mustaine is near the top of my list these days. In a world where metal guitarists detune the shit out of their axes to sound "metal", good ol' Dave still does everything out of base tuning. The guy is a supremely talented musician and a really intelligent guy to boot. He has forgotten more about music than most people will ever know.

I saw Alex Lifeson mentioned earlier in this thread and I echo the sentiment that he does not get nearly enough recognition. Many people recognize Rush as a band with a great deal of technical expertise, but few people can actually name the guitarist because he sits in the shadow of Geddy Lee and Neal Peart. Rush tracks are some of the most technical music I've ever heard, but Lifeson brings it with style and panache. I'm not their #1 fan by any stretch of the imagination (due in large part to Geddy Lee's singing, I prefer their instrumentals most), but Lifeson's guitar playing is certainly a point of focus for me when I dig 'em out of the ol' musical repertoire.

I really like the work of Adam Jones, and consider him to be a highly underrated master of harmony. What he lacks in blistering speed he makes up for with perfect timing in odd meter and soul searing harmonies.

My favorite electric guitarist of all time is by far Kim Thayil. The dude is an absolute virtuoso when it comes to complex harmonic progressions. I can think of none better than he at playing in alternate tunings.

way too many to list but with the overall body of work, I'd have to say Page is my number one. EVH is a real close second.

Cool to see Prince getting some good love here...the guy can play his ass off.

other guys that get me wet in the britches?

Andy Summers
Larry LaLonde
Cantrell
Wilton and DeGarmo were every bit as good as KK and Tipton or Murray and Smith
Derek Trucks
crap, nobody has sad Pete Townsend yet????

In 'Zappa plays Zappa' with Dweezil? Seems unlikely, #80. ; )

Vai is so good he definitely would have been discovered at one point or another, but as you know, it was Frank that got his name out there. I saw them together on the 'You are what you is' tour in Seattle (or was it Tinseltown rebellion?). My buddy was Frank's road manager (now with Dylan and Petty) and he told me back then that Frank was already growing tired of Vai's need for groupies and limelight. It was evident in their performance, together. Frank rolled his eyes at Vai a lot and pointing at him with his conducting stick, commented "he's only in it for the blow jobs". It was'nt long after Vai sold out and went to groupie heaven with that dolt from Van Halen.

Not knocking Vai, here. FZ was ridiculously demanding and there wasn't a lot of fun for a kid like Vai on tour with a guy like Frank. Glad he finally came to his senses, got away from pop and does the ZPZ thing with Dweezil, who should also be mentioned somewhere on such a list, IMO.

Few would remember Andy Gill (Gang of four). He was incredible and punk's version of Tom Morello.

I had the luxury of watching / listening to Morello "warm up", back stage in Honolulu. He was 100x better, and more technical, than in anything he could get away with playing live on stage. He was warming up with Dimeola's 'Elegant Gypsy suite'.

Morello's a guy held back by his chosen genre. If he's not done so to date, I hope he releases some solo stuff that fully exhibits his talent.

I am not one for "virtuoso's" -- I mean, I like Vai and Satch and Morse and all of those guys and I always marveled at their fast fingers... but I am more into guys who wrote great songs or played great solos and performed in bands I loved. Off the top of my head (the first names that "pop" )

Michael Schenker ("Rock Bottom" -- live -- still the greatest electric solo I ever heard in person...)
Neal Schon
Johnny Greenwood
Mick Ronson
Brian May
John Frusciante - every CP album with him is incredible, every one without him, bleh... not a Navaro fan AT ALL.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd (he makes my list simply for the song "Blue on Black")

Oh yea, and of course Lindsay Buckingham and David Gilmore *duh*

Some guys unmentioned:

BB King
Robert Johnson

From the 80s:

Lloyd Cole (incredibly underrated)
Steve Stevens
Charlie Sexton
Robert Quine
Matthew Sweet

And Jack White may not be a technical virtuoso but, if I were a guitar, I would want him playing me.

Yes, that sounds very gay. I don't care. JW rules!

All these are guys, but what about the best female shredder... ever? Let me introduce you to Orianthi. This bitch ROCKS!

I went to the Alice Cooper concert at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma last Friday, and she was his lead guitar! Total surprise to me, and seeing as I am enamored with rocker chicks, I thought it was awesome! If you do a little research, this chick is a big-time up and comer. She's even been featured on American Idol in the bands backing up the singers. And she's as hot as her guitar... Who says chicks can't play?

Orianthi was a guitarist for Michael Jackson's last concert series, she can definitely shred. Don't know what she is for composing, but she's super talented

Thinder? lol... But yeah, it was actually WAY better than I was expecting. I didn't expect Alice to sound as good as he did. At what, 65? He sang great, and the sound was great! Everything was perfectly balanced, with no voice or instrument too loud or too soft. Throbbing, clean bass. Was a very fun night in a great, intimate venue. There was a good 20-25 mins segment starting with "Welcome to my Nightmare" that was almost like you were watching a rock play, with a couple chicks that were just there for acting. Then we got to see Cooper's head chopped off in a big 'ol guillotine. Then there was the massive 15 foot high Frankenstein dancing around on the stage that looked surprisingly natural in its movements! Way cool! hahaha The encore, which was of course "School's out" was off the charts awesome! And the play of Orianthi was the frosting on the cake! Her stage presence was just awesome! So yeah, you should be jealous! :D You missed a good one!

Howzit Rott? You and I use to talk music at the PI (Chuckwow over there). I think you're going to like .net. Hella lot of posters and a few good ones too.

Adrian Belew, another Frank disciple (and King Crimson), deserves mention in this thread. Steve Howe (Yes) and Steve Hackett (Genesis) are both grossly underrated as well.

'Sup, brutha?

Nice seein' you again. Been awhile.

Yeah, lookin' to have some fun here with what appears to be a far less PC-crowd than that heap in charge of "the blue". Up theirs.

Our bro C.dub from hence has supposedly jumped into the fire here, too.

I like this format. I'm very familiar with BBCode.

There's a name which doesn't get mentioned nearly enough with the virtuosos.

Guy is an absolute sleight of hand with the axe. And if the Billy Idol songs from the 80s don't convince you, check out his '89 solo LP Atomic Playboys (in particular, the title track, and the song Slipping Into Fiction — YouTube them), and his slinging on Vince Neil's 1993 solo LP.

Stevens is David Blaine on the guitar.

Truth. Nobody can pull of that drudging, forboding, go to hell sound like Cantrell, then he switches it up with some awesome acoustic stuff.

The Mars Volta dude is pretty legit. Their music as a whole has kind of gone off the deep end of listenability to me. I respect the out there experimentation, but that doesn't mean I have to like listening to it.

Eric Clapton, well, he's just awesome.

I used to listen to SRV in college while drunk on whiskey and playing Madden. So, he has a soft spot in my heart.

Tony Iommi can and does and has for 45 years. He basically invented the "drudging, forboding, go to hell sound". Black Sabbath guitarist in case you don't know who Iommi is. And if you aren't aware of what he can do acoustically, find the song "Laguna Sunrise" on youtube (from the Sabbath album Vol. 4).

Really? We are on a favorite guitarist thread and you act like I don't know Iommi because I extoll the guitar sound of Cantrell? I am utterly positive Cantrell would list Iommi as a main influence. My description does fit Iommi as well. I'd venture to say he has a bit more pep than Cantrell though. Give Cantrell's Degradation Trip album a listen sometime.

I responded the way I did because when you said "Nobody can pull of that drudging, forboding, go to hell sound like Cantrell" I thought perhapos you didn't know Iommi because I have no idea your age. Thought I would point out where Jerry VERY likely got that approach which you acknowledged and agreed with in the post I'm quoting here.

Oh, and Btw I have Degradation Trip (very good album) and saw that tour at Bumbershoot in what, '02 or was it '03?. First time he had William as his singer I believe. Figured right then and there he'd reform AIC with William in place of Layne. And I think William does a pretty damned good job considering the circumstances.
