Best Guitarists Ever
The Contenders: Page 25
His compositions are very unique no matter what genre of music he writes (and he has put out music in a LOT of them), a quality that really stands out in this musical era. He is an extremely technically skilled guitarist, a brilliant composer and songwriter, and a really cool dude.
From his brutally heavy work with the runaway success Strapping Young Lad to his solo work and especially his latest album, Ziltoid the Omniscient, Devin has a strong sense of fun, and is a gifted composer as well as guitarist.V 3 Comments
T-Bone Walker was great and a big influence on guitarists like Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix. Should be in the top 100 at least. - RamblesV 1 Comment
Refined the talking guitar that was made popular by Peter Frampton, but deserves a mention on this list.
A relentless and underrated guitarist. Plays with a hard edge.
His major instrument is a slide guitar, but he has to be ranked amongst the best new guitarist. His live show is much better than his recordings though.
He is good.. Jimi Hendrix played with him
He is the best. Chimbinha is God
Nobody remembers the studio players. This dude has played on more hit records than most folks on this list.
The guy is unbelievable where is his place
From "XYZ".. Band came a bit late on the metal scene, but his guitar playing was spectacular.
Hey, why is he NOT in the list. Please check out his work on acoustic guitar and electric. If you can find "Black Queen" check it out.
This is way to low for Stephen. He is the best acoustic and rythym guitarist I know of. Back in the 70's he was up there with Clapton in Playboy's top 10.
This guy is good he should be in the top 15 listen to his wasted time solo I just keep my eyes closed whenever I listen to it, I felt I was playing it - rafayel
One of pinoys great guitarist.. Too bad he isn't playing here anymore - rafayel
An incredible guitarist rock/blues genre. should be in top 50
Ernie Isley had to be the best guitarist... Bar none! Not only was he a great musician, but he also had longevity. He played through at least six decades! How many musicians can say that?
Ernie is by far the Best Guitarist ever. For those of you who don't know... Jimi Hendrix played with Ernie Isley before before you ever heard of him
I have never heard anyone play better in my life. Next best is Prince. Then the rest.
Ernie should be much higher but I guess most voters did not hear him play.V 1 Comment
