Greatest Guitar player ever

So basically post who you think is the greatest guitar player in the world (can be living or deceased). If your choice for greatest guitar player isn't your favorite guitarist, then name your favorite too.

One Rule: If anyone posts a Jonas Brother I'm gonna puke out my internal organs.

As for me, I think the greatest ever is Eddie Van Halen, and I only say this because he really did invent a lot of the techniques of playin the guitar that all great guitarists use today, and trust me I'm not a fanboy, I hate their music.

My favorite guitar player is Slash from Guns 'n' Roses, I just love his style and how he can play real meaty blues licks so clean. Plus he's a old school badass.

Stevie Ray Vaughan rocked blues too far out the water, so sad he died



You can't deny he is nothing short of perfect.

I'd go with SRV as well, although I do love Steve Vai also.

Muhammed SuiÁmez from Necrophagist. Guy is just OTT technical, plus he has lean mean fat grilling machine vocals. He's also entirely self-taught.

I'd say Stevie Ray Vaughan. Love his music.....I will totally check out the vid of Muhammed SuiÁmez when I get home(stupid work blocker ). Always love expanding my musical listening. Didn't know about Joe Satriani until Rock Band. Love his style too

The older Jonas Brother. He blows Eddie VanHalen away.



But my favorite is John Lennon, I like how he plays like he doesn't want to be doing it.

I love the way Eddie Van Halen plays. It's different than anyone else.


I also love Angus Young. So much energy I wonder how he plays so well.

Anyone that knows me already knows exactly who i'll post.
My inspiration and only reason I play guitar today, David Gilmour.


One of the comments on that video describes it pretty well,
"he can take a single note and turn it into an opera with a single bend."

YouTube- Eruption Guitar Solo--Eddie Van Halen
at 5:46, I call molestation on the guitar. That whole video was like me watching a rape case in which the man goes "Did he touch it there?" "or here?" "How about here?" "even here?" All those questions lead to a yes.

Never heard of that Gilmoure dude, but I have to say he really does put all of his heart n soul into playing guitar, you can just tell when a guitarist is playin from true, deep emotion. Still, you can't ignore that Van Halen video haha

Added to sig. Too great to pass up.

My vote goes to Buckethead, Hendrix, Vaughn, Lennon, Van Halen and Page.

Yeah Van Halen is a great guitarist. He has some insane techniques that he can pull off flawlessly. I don't like VH songs though. I'm not into David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagars vocals at all, and I never listen for the drums/bass in their songs anyway. I'd listen to Van Halen solo albums anyday if he made them.

David Gilmour is/was the guitarist for Pink Floyd.

Best guitarist is Jason Becker. Probably one of the best composers the guitar has ever seen and one of the most technical. I only pick him because his sound is absolutely astounding while he can play with almost untouchable technique and speed. Also, I'm a massive neoclassical fan.

His version of Paganini's 5th Caprice (not all that great sounding but shows his technicality):


His own piece called Altitudes (my personal favourite):

Check him out. Very sad story.

If you're interested in neoclassical guitar check out these guys: Uli Jon Roth, David T. Chastain, Tony Macalpine, Vinnie Moore, Marty Friedman, Joey Tafolla, Chris Impellitteri, Michael Romeo, Joe Stump, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Some of these guys are more speed and technicality than sound. Regardless, these guys are probably amongst the most technical guitarists to ever live. Maybe not incredible sound such as Jimi Hendrix, but they compose some fantastic pieces.

EVH didn't really invent anything, but he his approach to techniques, sounds, etc is considered influential and revolutionary. I would say he's mostly known for his unique sound for that period and him popularizing two-hand tapping.

Gonna have to say Rusty Cooley as the greatest, everything he does just sounds magnificant:


Or John Petrucci of Dream Theater:


My favourite guitarist is probably Luke Hoskin from Protest the Hero. He's just intense and every song there is no standard riff, he changes it up all the time:

Tim Millar (from the same band) is equally as talented as well, I just prefer Luke because he does the more technical stuff in the songs.

Not the best quality vid going but still an awesome watch.

Most of you have some really boring picks I really like Vader's selections and Trashman has a nice one with Amott. I really like most of the picks, but I think there's better.
