Not saying these guys are the best or whatever, but if you had to choose between the 3 who would you choose? Its hard for me to say because they all have so many great attributes but I think GIlmour is the most well rounded but its really hard to say

All of the above. Gilmour is the most lyrical, Jimi is the most experimental, and Page is the most familiar to the ear. All great players who brought a lot to rock music.

Hendrix, it was a tough competition between Hendrix and Gilmour.

all three are great and have different styles and strengths so it's a tough choice. of the 3 Hendrix is my favorite but I have taken things from both Page and Gilmour for my own playing as well.

Jimi was a genius and Gilmour came immediately after him. There's a big difference.
Anyway, this my Jimi's tribute demo and it was a lot of fun to make it.

The only thing these three have in common is that they were unique. They created their own styles of playing. If you played 100 assorted audio clips of these three I'll bet most if not all of the guitar players who have been playing for more than 25-30 years will be able to identify which of the three is playing each clip. Their sound, feel and technique are that unique. I can't say that about many players these days. There are a lot of truly great players around today but not too many pioneers that sound distinct unto themselves.

I'll take all three please I would say they all had a lifetime of things for people to enjoy.

I'm still vampiring of all three.

You're asking us to pick amongst three rock gods. haha, I'd probably prefer Jimi but it's really close.

Both Gilmour and Paige were influenced by Hendrix. If I had to choose 1 of the 3, I'd have to go with Gilmour. He has/had the blues chops, he wasn't afraid to take risks, be experimental and there is so much soul in his playing. His bends and use of tremolo conveyed so much emotion.
