i dont mean say your name, i dont mean say the name of some famous rape rif shredding god. i mean explain what makes any one person the best guitarist in your eyes. Ill start with my definition.

The Best Guitarist - any person who can pick up a guitar and express themselves and their feelings exactly the way THEY mean/want to through their playing. Not by shredding like Dragon Force or playing pretty chords like Colbie Caillat.

Please define "The Best Guitar Player Ever." GO!

That's so f*cking broad. A retard could pick up a guitar and express themselves the EXACT way the meant to; beat on it until the strings fall out of tune.

I'm sorry, but people who try to name the best guitarist and come up with overly broad definitions on the term "best guitarist" need to shut the hell up and come up with better thread topics.

Pretty much this:
The Best Guitarist - any person who can pick up a guitar and express themselves and their feelings exactly the way THEY mean/want to through their playing. Not by shredding like Dragon Force or playing pretty chords like Colbie Caillat.

And this:
A guy who knows his theory, and can jam something out-of-the-blue in the right key.

I think there are a few guitarist who'd fit into this, John Frusciante is my best know example.

i knew what he meant and i sort of agree as long as you're not tone-deaf. i think he meant express themselves musically and with the sounds that are in their head and that relate to how they feel and is synonymous with how a person who had lived their life would feel.

you fail miserably because all those threads are asking who is the "Best Guitarist"

This thread is asking what would be used to define what makes somebody the best guitarist
