Who do you think is the best guitar player of all time?

I think it is Jimi Hendrix. Others that I think are good are Duane Allman, Zakk Wylde, Jimmy Page, Slash, Angus Young, and Kirk Hammond.

For the last time, no means yes.

Sometimes I think I've gone too far. Then I turn on the T.V.

Some people say that the glass is half empty. Some people say that the glass is half full. I say that the glass is twice as big as it is supposed to be.

Dick Dale would have to be the best of the best, but there are some many that come close it's hard to name them all

Steve Vai is another one

I think the best guitar player of all time was Randy Rhodes......heavy sigh

I think the best guitar player of all time was Stevie Ray Vaughan....heavier sigh

The best living guitar player today is Robin Trower.

My favorite guitar players are Robin, David Gilmore, Stevie Ray, Zakk Wilde

Here is a pic of Robin Trower (My copyright):

Here's bucket head's site:Buckethead Land

He has a couple of free downloads. Here's one.
Nottingham Lace
He's done several music scores for movies. He filled in for Slash for Guns and Roses last tour. Worked with everyone and there brother in the music industry. Did a lot with Primus.

His style ranges from Horror metal riffs to clasical to funk to Dance trance. Buckethead can play any style. He's the most original guitar player in the world today. Read about his Bio you'll flip how crazy it sounds. But he has one major cult following. And on all of his albums he plays every instrument.

I'd have to say Douglas Richardson is the mos phenomenal guitar player I have ever seen or heard in all my life. It's unfortunate that he had too many other character flaws to become well known.

Randy Rhodes is definately #1.

Eddie Van Halen has got to be a close second.

Can't do all time favorite unless of course you are discussing albums and then it would have to be The Shadows Apache album . Can do  best contemporary Guitarists though , Ben Harper and John Fraciante both capable of producing a unique sound from there guitar that dosen't sound like a Santana rip off .   thumbsup.gif
