Best Guitarists Ever

He is a bassist and keyboard but plays many instruments. But greatest guitarist list, keep smoking dope!V1 Comment
Really? Lenny Kravitz listed at 342...? Lenny is an amazing guitar player! This list is killing me. I'm still waiting to find Kenny Wayne Shepherd who should seriously be waaay up on this list, along side Joe Bonamassa. In my humble opinion this list is a complete joke!V1 Comment
One of the greatest modern influences on rock and blues. - ethangrossman5
Top 100. He is better than where he is placed
His guitar playing rivals jack white!
Seriously listen to "little black submarines" and you won't be disappointed.
Al is not a recognized name by many people who don't regularly listen to jazz. However if anyone gives this guy a listen people will put him in the top 10 for sure. He's the fastest guitar player ever and extremely elaborate in his abilities to perform.
Al suffers because he does not get the exposure a rock guitarist does, but listen to "Elegant Gypsy Suite" or any of his work with seminal jazz fusion outfit Weather Report and you'll be mightily impressed. Legions of guitarist pay homage to him. Definitely a top 10 contender.
Same as with Pat Metheny: this list seems more to be a list of most popular rock guitarists, then best guitarists at all. Al Dimeola is amazing on the guitar. As I saw him live, sometimes I would like to ask for a slow motion, because my senses could not follow his play.
Um, yeah, this seems to be a list of best known guitarist not the best guitarist. Al at 371. Proof this list is being created by MTV fans, not guitar fans.V15 Comments
Silent but deadly... there's nothing I can say to show you just listen to Bloc Party's songs... the live ones are even better... - Dame
This guy destroys. He is way better than Herman Li. Why? Because he is just as good live as he is in the studio, unlike Herman who is terrible live. Also, he knows how to make a SONG, not one big solo, which Herman can't do. Oli could play the Dragonforce songs live better than Herman does. - thetruthisabsolution
Wow he's only 90? Try listening to their albums. Almost every song has a amazing guitar solo in it by him & only him. - thetruthisabsolution
He's a beast. Super Fast Solo's. ATR doesn't get as much credit as they diserveV1 Comment
Was really impressed seeing on stage! Passionate musician with a confident style.
Die is on the list?! Wow! I love Dir en grey, and Die is one of my favorite members
He's amazing ^^ I love to seeing him on a stage. He is very confident and always has a good interaction with fans.
Most of the people don't remember him, but he really cool! Sometimes his technic is just unique. Just listen him and you'll understand. - DeDoDoDoDeDaDaDa
A Guitar player for all seasons, classically trained can do anything! Ask anyone who played with him! Around from the 60s with Zoot Money and as a unique session man (ask Neil Sedaka). Just listen to early Police riffs he is incredible. Still gigs with a jazz trio and would be easily top 5 technically.
He was in the Police and he could kick Slash's @$$ anyday (if not Slash then Kurt Cobain and any other overrated guitar player on this list)! - bigherculesV1 Comment
Andy made some of the trippiest music in the 60's and 70's. Camel is a band for the ages. Most of the music still holds up very well, and if you have any psychedelics on hand, watch out!
He is the best one he can play another tunes and he has great skills he can play amazing solos :))
Amazing soloist in the vein of David Gilmour - RalphSaad
Great guitarist from Argentina he played in a band called Soda Stereo which is simply "The Best Hispanic Rock Band EVER"
