I remember seeing Deep Purple (in the past 20 years). At one point they announced they had a guest gutarist for a few songs, a kid who had won a guitar contest recently in Liverpool. (There was a Liverpool in the city of the performance as well as the UK one). The 'kid' was George Harrison.


On topic: For the 20th century phenomenon of "rock", Jimi Hendrix soars over the Claptons, Gilmours, Pages, Harrisons and Santanas of the world.

C'mon MA, Harrison is older than every member of Deep Purple, the only 70's band that didn't suck in the 80's. Maybe they were being facetious.

Perfect Strangers.
Slaves and Masters.

Along with all of the great 70's tunes.

You have become Captain Obvious.

Of course they were kidding, in deference to Mr Harrison.

It was considered to be newsworthy enough to be on the front page of the city rags (city of 3+ million) the next day.

I believe that the best guitarists of all times are: Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, and the fastest and most tehniq is Michael Angelo: hail: You should all watch his fabulous videos

Wow, it has been a while since I've seen this thread...I thought OTS killed it. Unfortunately, I have to admit that I agree with Shai_lene: Clapton. Though, my personal favorite usually changes, I always come back to Jimmy...Page.

What, is Eddie Van Halen too obvious a pick here or what?????????

I'll put Eddie up against any of those clowns any day. MY apologies to the great SRV.

Peace

Eddie Van Halen changed guitar.........
Jimi Hendrix gave the guitar a soul.....
SRV gave the guitar a voice................
Malmsteen gave the guitar shred.......
Eric Clapton gave the guitar emotion.
George Harrison gave guitar depth....
Jimmy Page was guitar.......................

Out of all those rock guitarists, my favorite is Eddie, and I believe that he could rock with the best of em....did you know that Randy Rhoades took guitar lessons from Eddie.....

That all adds up to Link Ray. Look back, WAY back, I know you're thinking WTF. Look to the tunes in the movie Pulp Fiction.

Well, if we're gonna talk ancient history...then Robert Johnson was hero and inspiration to half of the guitar greats mentioned above.

That's a reach guys. The Beatles were great because they took us from the "single" to the "album" but the only one that was a good musician was Paul, he can play that bass. Passable on the piano.


Granted he isn't technicly that good but he aint that bad either. I would like to see you play something like him (i mean teh song something BTW). He deserves a mention for being part of the awesome musical force that was the beatles.

One of the best new guitarists for me is Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom...

The best art-rock guitar, David Gilmour

BB King is the King

SRV, he was awesome, man!

The best guitarist that most of you have never heard of? Dave Mudgett, he plays in several bands in the State college, Pennsylvania area, most notably Mike Swavely and the Chrome Magnatones, which he left in 2000, I guess there is now a reorganization of foormer members called the 4 horseman? Anyway, if ever you find yourself in that area, be sure to look up one of his bands.

I was reading last months (or this months) Guitar World magazine, the one with Laiho, Steve Vai, and Zakk Wylde on the cover, and Laiho has a pretty interesting story. I must admit, I've never heard of him until then, but after downloading some of there songs, I must say he is very good. Definitely one of the best new guitarists.

There is no best.

No one could do Wes Montgomery better than Wes.

No one could do Jimi or Page better than they could.

No one could do Charlie Christian better than Charlie.

No one can do EVH better than himself.

Etc, etc, etc.... ad nauseum.

At that level, it is all about apples and oranges.
