    Prince not even being mentioned in this thread is a joke.

    My favorites have been listed already, so I'll throw the Edge into the conversation.

    I saw the Eagles last night at Verizon Wireless Ampitheater outside of Atlanta. I'd forgotten how good Joe Walsh is. Fun show.

    I think you have to separate guitarists by genre. If not, give me Ben Monder or Kurt Rosenwinkel any day of the week.

    The best I have ever seen was Glen Tipton and KK Downing of Judas Priest.

    Here are some others I've seen:

    Eric Clapton (past his prime, but also a lifetime of practice)
    Buddy Guy
    Warren Haynes
    Trey Anastasio (flame away, he's technically brilliant, if a poor songwriter)
    Jimmy Page (w/Allison Krauss, it was a weird show, and he played acoustic the whole night)
    Nels Cline
    Jonny Greenwood
    Brock Butler (look up Sundog by Perpetual Groove)
    Keith Richards
    Robert Randolph
    Jake Cinninger (apetit mentioned, he's insanely good)
    J Masics
    Buckethead (some have speculated it's Eddy Van Halen)

    So many more. Derek Trucks is a good.
    Trucks is amazing...anybody who can play for the Allman Bros as a teenager has gotta be something special.

    When Creed dumped Scott Stapp, they hired Myles Kennedy and formed Alter Bridge. Totally different than Creed. I dare say it's actually good.

    That was awesome; thanks for sharing. Just saw Trucks on the Rock and Roll Induction Ceremony. As usual he was amazing.

    you're clearly (homoerotically) biased.
    When I read 27's post, I assumed he was being sarcastic. Mayer is a good guitar player, but belongs nowhere near the top 10.

    Very cool you saw that live. What is he there - 14?

  14. #54
    I think he was 13. He sat in with the Allmans on Statesboro blues that night.

    Some like KK Downing more than Glen Tipton.

    It depends on what you are looking for. George Harrison and Jerry Garcia were unbelievable guitarists, they just weren't shredders. Pos rep to the Vernon Reid reference. Prince as well. EVH will always be a bad ass. Agree also that as far as shredding, the list begins and ends with Hendrix.

    Hendrix was in no way a shredder. That style of playing wasn't even invented when he died. I really don't like that style anyway.

    I agree about Garcia, but not Harrison, who doesn't belong in the same category as the guys on this thread.

    A couple of blues guys I like are Joe Bonamassa and Robben Ford.

    yeah, hendrix wasn't a shredder. he was an alien. not really playing the guitar, more like the guitar was part of his soul.

  19. #59
    to expand, jimi hendrix could not read or write music. yeah, he just played

  20. #60
    Garcia is always underappreciated on top guitarist lists, imo.
