What song would someone have to play to be the "best" guitar player ever?

They would have to actually write the most talented, skillful, awesome, etc.. song ever to be the "best" guitar player.

Playing other people's stuff doesn't make you great. Writing your own awesome stuff is what makes you great.

writing your own stuff won't necessarily make yiu the best player. you'd be the best composer if it was good enough.

I'd say give 'Flight of the Bumblebee' a try.
There are a hundreds of very hard tracks to play, each in its own style and difficulties.

Yeah, and do it in straight 16th notes at 160bpm.
Then you can be the "best ever" and still sound like crap

for the second chord just use a capo and your five fingers above the neck to play it, easy.

And thats a wierd question, its hard to define a better player from a group of very good players let alone the BEST.

I guess you can only be very good at a select few styles of music to the point of being one of the best, not just technique wise but also as a composer. hours in a life time to be the best at every single aspect of guitar playing and musicianship.

Yeah, try and play that 4 times, that's the verse. The chorus is this

-------24------------18------------
-------1--------------24------------
-------24-------------3------------
-------19------------17------------
-------7--------------19----------
-------13-------------22-----------

You play that seven times, and then you flip the frets for the second verse.
