i personaly think the greatist guitarist of all time is jimi hendrix, but everyone has their own opinion so who do you guys think the best guitarist is?
#2
I used to think Jimmy Page, but he can get a bit boring. So now I don;t know, but my top 2 are probably John Frusciante and George Harrison.
#3
Greatest as in influence? I would say either Clapton or Hendrix.


I think the best all around guitarist is Alex Lifeson. He can do anything. Great Riffs, Great Soloing, anything.

man there have been hundereds of threads like this, there cant be a greatest guitarist of all time really because everyone has their own style. its not like everyone played hendrix's style and were seeing whos best at it, it doesnt work like that

i wasnt asking for the best, i was asking for peoples opinions on their favorite or the guitarist that influenced them the most
#15
Jeff Hanneman. Or, James Dean Bradfield. Can't think of a difference between the two.

Good ol Dave. He shows the most emotion in his solo's. No one comes close to him in my mind.

To all who say Hendrix.....he is definately good but he owes as much to Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend and Jeff Beck as the rest of the guitar-playing world owes to him...he was great and probably the best but he got his moves and style from Townshend and his playing technique from all 3...in my opinion, Pete Townshend influenced the rest of rock history more than most others.

not to mention Hendrix is the most over-rated guitarist in history, next to Dime.

In some ways yeah he is, but a lot of credit goes to those 3.

Yea i forgot about Townshend.


He is also, not to mention, the greatest rhythm guitarist there ever was.

Calm down, you don't have to defend Jimi Hendrix...its his own opinion, and besides he never said either sucked, just overrated.

Ah, you see my friend, saying someone is over rated and saying they suck are WAY two different things. I never said they lacked skill. I was simply stating that they were over rated. You can't walk into a guitar store for Christ's sake w/o seeing no less than 10 items with Dime's namesake/face on them. Same thing goes for Hendrix. Sure, I reccognize that they were great guitarists, but lets face it. Half the people wouldn't even know who they were if it hadn't been for them dying. Now please, take a few deep breaths and go watch Happy Days...
