Favourite Guitarists

This discussion was inspired by the recent article about our 3 favourite female singers.

Because it was impossible for me to pick just three female vocalists ( I love women singers), I will not put a limit as to how many you wish to vote for. I limited myself to a dozen. However, if you list more that 50 I will seriously question your decision making skills.

In no particular order, except for Rory at number one.

1. Rory Gallagher

2. Peter Green

3. Roy Buchanan

4. Joe Bonamassa

5. David Gimour

6. Slash

7. Johnny Winter

8. Duane Allman

9. Stevie Ray Vaughn

10. Mark Knopfler

11. Glen Campbell

12. Guthrie Govan



Nice list…Sooo Sooo many…. Gotta add Hendrix, Kossoff, Mike Bloomfield , Billy Gibbons, Joanne Shaw Taylor, John Mayer and Joe Walsh (way underrated).

As a guitar player for 50 years, my standard for "greatness" is measured by how many other musicians play your stuff. Jeff Beck wins hands down. Nobody tries to emulate his playing.

No particular order, except for nr 1 (which is always easy for me):

1. Jimmy Page

- Peter Green

- Gary Moore

- Steve Hackett

- Brian May

- Steve Howe

- Walter Rossi (check out his 'Silent I Wait' for starters)
