my vote is going to have to go to frank zappa. there are lots of people that play it safe and don't hit a wrong note but there is nobody around that would take the risks that he took on stage to see where the air sculpture would take him.

Explanation: "biggest risk taker when it comes to the guitar solo"??? Maybe the Gratefull Dead's lead guitarist because he/they deliberately never played the same song at concerts twice. Or its gotta be Jimmy Hendrix because I suggest you try playing an electric guitar PERFECTLY with your tongue whilst plutoed of your face on '___' in front of thousands of concert goers! NOW THATS RISK TAKING!

Personal Disclosure: Jimmy wins hands down!

hendrix was far, far from perfect in his solo's. he played wrong notes all over the place

He even admitted that, and found it funny that people that cloned him made the same mistakes that he did.

As for risk takers, I dunno, I thought every single lead guitarist took risks when they solo. Either way, I guess you could say the guitarist of Behold the Arctopus took a lot of risks with his solos. In fact, the band took a risk with even releasing their atonal music:

no not everyone takes risks. a lot of people play notes that are close together on the fretboard and won't go out of a certain mode...say they will stay in phyrigian the whole time.
risk takers switch modes, string skip, and do all kinds of stuff.
slash is a good example of someone who does not take risks at all

Yeah, well point taken. Still though, the risk takerss would really be the people that are in bands that specialise in atonal music like Larry LeLonde playing in Primus and stuff. There are more, but as I've said before, I don't really care too much for guitarists.

you're right about larry. there are tons of guitarists out there that have serious musical value to their music.
if you don't care for guitarists, what instrument are you into? the bass

Yeah. That's pretty much it. Drums, too.

Derek Bailey. You can find his stuff on YouTube.
