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



On deck this weekend- period presses from the late, great Jeff Beck



Blow by Blow 


The Jeff Beck Group-   Jeff Bech Group &Rough and Ready

Yardbirds-For Your Love

Any remember "Guitar Boogie"? mashup with Clapton, Page and Beck?


One of the lead guitarists in the all-star lineup for the "great gig in the sky."

I cannot imagine omitting Hendrix, a king of guitar, as well as Jimmy Page. I would also add John Schofield, John Abercrombie, John McLaughlin, Carlos Santana, Steve Hackett, Greg Lake, Frank Zappa, Terje Rypdal, Ralph Towner, Bill Friesel, Pat Metheny. We should add Eric Clapton (and even George Harrison  not Benson - except his early jazz years, then he got too commercialized and more like a singer).

I would neither omit Joe Pass and Jim Hall, also Kenny Barrel. 

I agree on Gary Moore but he is a base player, as well as Eberhard Weber. 

I’m a big Cold Chisel fan


You know too well that Chisel was just a limp little pub band from Australia.

This is an example of the pathetic attempt playing in the sandpit.

I am embarrassed at a band who has obviously no sense of fun or talent.
