Best Guitarists Ever
« see full list
I've seen AC/DC live and Angus played his arse off, It was note perfect, it was precise and it went on and on. I'm sure there are some fantastic guitarists on this list and as soon as I see them play I'll rate them, but damn they will have to be very special to match up to what I heard from Angus o/
Just listen "Sin City, Whole Lotta Rossie, and Fly on the Wall" you will hear the rock's real music! I think he is the best for his pentatonic, his finger is so crazy, I say page slash and hendrix are great guitarist too, but his energic, powerful, big heart and his crazy pentatonic, angus really the truly rocker ever!
Angus young is my favurite guitarist because I think he just makes the greatest and improvisaded solos ever its really a singing of nature I haven't heard so wonderful solos with so much feeling never in my entire life I think angus is totaly number one and I think that "slash, kirk, jimmy page" are awesome but just can't to whats angus is doing listen to the solo "gone shootin" I think nonve of those guitarist what are often in top lists can do that they just can't do it man angus is also a unreplacable showman and star of biggest rockband in the world we salute you AC/DC
He's better than most you know guitar gods you know he's better than guitar gods like kirk hammett carlos santana slash jimmy page and even jimi Hendrix did you know that jimmy page said in a interview that he was kinda jealous of angus young and he's played before angus was born
Anybody who makes a greatest guitarist list and doesn't put Angus Young as number 1 shouldn't even be making a list because obviously they don't know crap about what makes a guitarist great or music in general. I will just say this Angus is the best there is, The best there was, and the best there ever will be! ANGUS YOUNG IS #1 Randy Rhoads is #2 Eric Clapton and Eddie Van Halen is a toss up for #3 in my opinion.
If he were a Greek or Roman god, he would be "Angus the god of music" Apparently, the 98% of you that didn't vote for Angus are either 1, deaf, or two, never even heard of him. He's a rock god, and I only know how to nail one of his solos, and it took me 3 years to learn, and I go to a "musical arts" school. Angus Young is a beast, guitarist god, and anything that means good. If I ever met him, I would run to an empty room, and go "AHH! IT'S HIM! " I think Angus deserves to be #1! VOTE!
First off Jimi Hendrix is the best, but Angus is a very underrated guitarist. He performs every song perfectly live and puts on a great show. He can solo with the best of them while running around or flopping on the ground like he's having a seizure. Angus' riffs are sick and his solos are unique. His signature SG has been used his entire career, but manages to make unique songs every time.
I can't still believe that Prince is ahead ANGUS
this list seems to be a joke... however, this guy always make great riffs (like "Thunderstruck"), great solos (like "Let There Be Rock"), great chords (like "Back in Black") and he always had done a great live performance. What would be rock without guitarists like him?
I always hear people say how overrated Angus is and that "oh, anyone can play 3 chords. " It's not just 3 chords... He's got some serious emotion and stage presence! AC/DC shows are energetic and exciting! Angus is extremely influential, as he should be, and deserves much better than 15th. He's one of those "classic" rock guitarists who all rock fans know of.
dude like angus young is like the best guitarest in the world and I hate it when people say that he isn't the best now I want all you acdc hatters 2 listen 2 thunderstruck and hail ceaser and then why don't you like vote again and tell every1 that angus young is the best guitarist in the world
He's BEAST he changed the world of rock and roll guitar, he's got more energy on stage then any guitarist I've ever seen, he made the rock and roll hall of fame in 2007 he started one of the most succesfull bands you can't live a life without knowing who these guys arehe should be at the top for his school boy uniform and his chuck berry dulk walk man
most of his solos are unique. those haters have to be idiots and say "well, all of angus' riffs sound exactly the same just like all their songs and albums" but they never heard songs like "ride on" or "the jack" so they're pretty stupid
Come on! He's Angus Young! Back in Black is the 2nd best selling album of all time... the don't just give that to anyone! And unlike any of the guitarists above him, he puts energy into his songs... he plays the most BAD ASS solos while rolling around on the ground or running all over the stage, which none of the guitarists above him can do... sure he isn't the number one, but he's definitely better that Slash, Eric Clapton, Synyster Gates, Kirk Hammett, and David Gilmore!
He is god level guitarist. His every song has got an amazing chords. He is underrated.
He can even dance while playing guitar. A guitarist should be rated according to the music he create not how fast he can play.
Angus shows us what a lead guitarist show be, not only rocking but stylistically his own man. He isn't a guitar God he is just the best guitarist I've ever heard in my 58 years on this earth. When you hear him play--no question its him, which can't be said for most of them. He is a little guy with HUGE talent--------no doubt
Angus Young IS THE BEST GUITARIST EVER then HENDRIX Then SLASH BUT ANGUS IS DEFINITELY #1......IF YOUVE EVER HEARD HELLS BELLS OR ANY OF THEIR SONGS YOU WOULD KNOW
Greatest of all time should be number 1 no questions asked every one on this list needs to bow down to angus young he is untouchable the man can do anything they can do and make it better and sound cleaner. My hat is off to this man no one will ever be as great eveerr PERIOD!
Are you joking Angus Young is the best guitarist ever! He is in the business for a long time I think seance 1967. Synyster gates is nothing compare to Angus. I think the list has to be like this. SLASH, ANGUS, Eddie Van Halen and then the little girl of Synyster gates or how I like to call him Syster Gay.
WTF, Angus Young has to be 4 or better. All those other player just stand there. I have never seen Angus stand still while playing, except in like let there be rock but had no room to. But it was one of the hardest song solos too.
Angus should have been number 1, because he's the BEST guitarist ever seen! All his amazing solos while lying on the floor?! I'd like to see other guitarist do that! He is and will always be the best guitarist on this earth... And in the whole universe... Angus Young, THE GUITAR GOD!
Amazing he has been great since he was a teen to fifty.
He has skill. Back in Black was an explosion through the expected and this guy should be right behind jimmy page his soloing unmatched his rhythms and chorus especially verses are great and he runs around like a loony tune
this is absurd angus puts these other guitarist to shame because angus has dozens of great popular songs and riffs and he basically uses only three chords angus should definitely be top five or at least better then hide whoever that is
He has to be the best guitarist ever after all he have done for the History of Rock! Being able to play those solos while lying on the floor is just amazing! And together with Malcoml Young he makes one of the best guitarist duo of all time!
Love his work! Songwriter and guitarist to one of the best rock&roll bands alive! Angus Young started AC/DC changing how people looked at Australia for rock&roll for the better, mostly thanks to Angus Young and his quick fingers!
angus is the best. great live, perfect sound, unique. years and years of playing and still puts his heart and soul into it. he has developed and perfected his sound over the years. dunno where music would be without him.. love him.
