Do you think there is one/ever could be one? I greatest guitarist would have to be the greatest guitarist in all genres, and super-influencial. I was just reading the MF 49 greatest guitarists, and that was a fail, just for trying to make a list. Your always gonna put someone too far back on the list, according to someone.


So pit, do you think there could even be a greatest guitarist?

No because everyone plays differently and music isn't a competition anyway so who gives a f*ck?
If life gives you oranges, say "f*ck oranges" and bail.

No, there is no "best". A guitarist can shred fast, but maybe he can't play rhythm, or he may be able to fingerpick perfectly, but can't use a pick, ect.

Same is for singers... who is the best singer? No one. The best computer game? The best book? The best movie? It depends on your tastes.

There will never be a "best" player, although imo Joe Satriani, Buckethead or Paul Gilbert are the only guitarists I've seen who excel at absolutely everything they do.

Not really. There are people who come close (Steve Vai, EVH, or Randy Rhoads would be my picks), but I doubt anyone will ever truly be the best guitarist ever.
Megadeth > Metallica
Gibson > Fender
Randy Rhoads > Everybody

No. There are guys like Eddie Van Halen who can walk into a room and make all the other guitarists jealous, but there can never be a best guitarist ever.
What can we do with a canoe that will make people say, "Oh No, What's Wrong With Them?"

Yeah, but you see the have technical ability - yet lack massively in melodies, feel, song writing and the other end of the spectrum.

It is always one end or the other - and if any player is in that grey area in the middle.....well - it is ALWAYS opinion.
