10 Guitarists Who Look Great on a List

Make no mistake, these guitarists are all great in their own individual ways. We don't care though. We're not ranking them. We just think they all look really cool on a list with each other! Keep this open in your web browser or something if you want someone to notice that you were looking at a cool list. Enjoy!

Make no mistake, these guitarists are all great in their own individual ways. We don't care though. We're not ranking them. We just think they all look really cool on a list with each other!

Keep this open in your web browser or something if you want someone to notice that you were looking at a cool list. Enjoy!

Jimi Hendrix

What more can possibly be said about one of the most iconic and recognizable guitarists in history? Not much. Still, though, Jimi sure does look great shown next to these other phenomenal players!

Kurt Cobain

Cobain had a style that was all his own. His songs - while simple in form - would somehow contain catchy, infectious melodies that would be stuck in your head for days at a time! We don't really care about that, though. This list isn't really about that. It's about how great Kurt looks featured in a list with other talented musicians - and, boy, does he look great!

Jack White

Forget, for a moment, how you feel about Jack White. Guacamole recipes and incriminating emails aside, he's a superb guitarist that stacks up quite nicely next to these other nine shredders! And he can sing! Most importantly, he's a great addition to this list!

Stevie Ray Vaughan

You can debate forever about whether Stevie Ray Vaughan or Jimi Hendrix is the more talented guitarist, but don't do it here because this isn't a ranking of any kind. This is merely a list of ten guitar players that look cool together. Alright Stevie!

Joan Jett

No list of guitarists could possibly be complete without Joan Jett! She's just about as cool as they come! Can you believe this list?!

John Frusciante

When John Frusciante left RHCP for a second time in 2009 to pursue his solo career, many people had doubts about whether they would ever see this gifted guitarist on any sort of list with other well known players ever again. Bet those people feel pretty dumb right about now! Look at him! There he is!

Johnny Ramone

Something Johnny Ramone was famous for as a guitarist was playing only downstrokes for every song, which is actually why we put him closer to the bottom of this list. It's not like it matters anyway. We're not making this list to argue about who's better or worse, but simply that these particular guitar players all look pretty cool on a list together! Gabba Gabba Hey!

Jimmy Page

We may never get another Led Zeppelin reunion, sure, but that doesn't mean we can't have the next best thing: Jimmy Page - the lead guitar player himself - on some kind of cool list surrounded by nine other players. We feel like that's a pretty okay takeaway, don't you?

Joe Perry

Perry's relationship with Aerosmith's lead singer may be a bit rocky at times, but the decision to include him in a list like this - a list where none of the players are meant to seem better or worse than each other, but just look really cool as a whole - is rock solid!

You

Always follow your dreams! Don't listen to what other people tell you because you can achieve something! Look at this list! We didn't rank anyone on it. You could be completely terrible and you still could've made it on this list - and we'd love to have you next time!

Well, that's our list! Pretty cool, right?! What did you think? Did we leave anyone off that could've made this list even cooler? We can always make it longer! Let us know in the comments below!

    This was hilarious. For everyone moaning about how "pointless" this was I ask you: What the point is in all the other lists UG posts? They are having a laugh at the fact that every week they ask the UG community to pick 10 "insert list parameters here" guitarists and then every time it's posted the exact same community that picked the list moans about it. I say well done UG. You are funny and have brightened up my morning!

    Great article! It was a good idea to not rank anyone; after all, music is not about being the best--it is about expressing yourself in ways that words cannot express.
