There can never be a winner, OK? The only winner is the company that repairs my walls after I punch them in frustration from seeing another one of these threads.

Stevie Ray Vaughn WAS considered the last guitar hero. Rolling Stone put out an issue talking about new guitar gods. John Mayer is pretty good, and Frusciante is f-in amazing. Don't know the other guy personally. Your list is mostly just a bunch of famous hard rock/metal guitarists. What about shredders such as Satriani or Malmsteem? Or B.B. King. Your list blows.
#21
Dude, no EVH? I don't care how late it is, I could outplay Mick Mars. Oh and CC Deville
Also, did you seriously think no UG'er had ever made a "Greatest Guitarist ever" thread??

u shouldn't make a list of only 10 or so, i think someone should make a final complete poll of EVERY guitarist that is good enough to be up there. I don't think this list is crap, it's a decent list but none of the newer players appreciate it. B.B. King makes in on less the 1/4 of these lists which is a crime because of how genius he was. He's not my favorite but he deserves some merit.

So someone make a list of EVERY guitarist then we can all vote, and whoever wins that, then it makes sense to deem that person the best.

why in the world would you do this, SEARCH BUTTON! you will never make a list that pleases every1 and doing this on ug will only get you flamed. just because this is the music you listen to does NOT IN ANYWAY mean they are the best guitarists by any means. There are so many classical, jazz, funk and other guitars out there that could easily compete with them. and dont use the excuse of im a noob so i can post the same thing some1 has said 100 times someone just close this thread please

Nice try Cris, but this guy is obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer and therefore can't be expected to be able to appreciate the genius of someone like Gilmour. He had both Mick Mars and CC DeVille on the list, he misspelled CC's name, he uses the word "own", and he thinks BB King sucks. Not to mention the fact that he started this lame thread and obviously believes that there can actually BE a "best" guitarist. I'm guessing he's about 11. I mean, he told one guy that Mick Mars owns him. C'mon...

That was perhaps the most ignorant post I have ever seen outside of the pit. If you think C.C. Deville is a better guitarist than B.B. King, please die.

Rolling stone did a reader poll to come up with a Top 100, I'm not sure I agree with some of their results (like how does Kurt Cobain come in above Carlos Santana) Here's the top few.

1Jimi Hendrix
2 Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers Band
3 B.B. King
4 Eric Clapton
5 Robert Johnson
6 Chuck Berry
7 Stevie Ray Vaughan
8 Ry Cooder
9 Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin
10 Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones
11Kirk Hammett of Metallica
12 Kurt Cobain of Nirvana
13 Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead
14 Jeff Beck
15 Carlos Santana



I won't post all 100, so here's a link for ya.

Here's the complete list

Wow! Your good! You expect people to vote on your poll while your blasting them for not voting? Your really good!

Anyways, just for you info, doubt your ignorant lil' mind cna handle it, but you can't define parameters to end up with a single great guitarist! It don't work that way fool! There are way too many styles, way too many factors to consider, and popularity does not make a guitarist good in any case. Just 'cos you don't like jazz don't mean that jazz ain't good! Damn boy, you stupid? Even Zakk Wylde, metal through and through, respects Luciano Pavarotti for being a great singer even though it's not his genre! That is what it's all about, being able to respect people's abilities for the music they create regardless of whether your digging their style!


Anyways, you will go home and rethink your life.
