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



When i clicked in i figured it might be inspired by the top Female 3

I thought i would lurk only (as is my usual habit)

however when i saw Rory at 1 at had to chime in

I like the no particular order as much as i can lock in number 1  the order will change most times


so   ill go with Steve  be it Howe or Hackett

  Derek Trucks   Daune Allman

Zappa    Jeff Beck  Al Di Meola 

Frampton  J Winter


and always always always  Rory Gallagher at ONE

I saw Rory Gallagher at the Falls Church VA Community Center in either 1972 or 1973, no kidding. Saw Peter Frampton there as well as Nils Lofgren and Brownsville Station. Those days were different…

Malcolm and Angus Young of AC/DC.

The Rolling Stones did some of their most melodic stuff when Mick Taylor was a member.
