Okay, I do it, the most stupid thing ever, another "greatest guitarist ever" list. I´m sure everybody has seen hundreds of them and every single one sucks. But I want to do it for one reason: if everybody lists ten names then there are pretty good chances that the next one who reads it sees at least one name he has never heard before and so he can check out a new band.
here we go

1) Hendrix
2) Clapton
3) Page
4) Yngwie Malmsteen
5) Robert Johnson
6) B.B. King
7) Wes Montgomery
8) Eddie Van Halen
9) John Petrucci
10)Chuck Berry (just because he practically invented rock´n´roll)
#2
1. Carlos Santana
2. Alexi Laiho
3. Synyster Gates
4. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez
5. Brent Hinds
6. Steve Vai
7. John Frusciante
8. Adam Jones
9. Zakk Wylde
10. Randy Rhoads
Guitar
Lyon LI15
Epi Beast
Berhinger V-ampire LX210
Danelectro grilled cheese & t-bone

Bass:
Peavey 112
Ibanez gsr200

Agreed. There's no point in doing anything if she looks like shit.

Synyster Gates higher than Vai? I have a spare flame shield, if you want it.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

I might not be able to play better than Synyster Gates, but I'm 100000% SURE that Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Steve Vai, John Frusciante, Zakk Wylde, Randy Rhoads and MANY other guitarists that you didn't mention can completely wipe him out anytime

So yeah, you list sucks
Fender Jaguar -> Polytune -> Diamond Compressor -> Timmy -> OCD -> Big Muff -> Line 6 M9 -> Sonomatic Cheddar -> Spark boost -> Fender BDRI
#14
It would proboly be Paul Gilbert and Carlos Santana (although I'm not a huge fan of them)
#15
i didnt put my list in any particular order.

and that video is for n00bs. Learn what your talking about what your chiming in about ok?

And if i were to re-order my list it would be

santana
laiho
wylde
vai
frusciante
rhoads
hinds
rodriguez lopez
jones
gates

and if you dont like it its your own opinion.
its not gonna change mine.

These guitarist-skill comparison threads are all useless, how the **** can you really determine if one is better than the other, its 100% based on opinion.

BTW, Jimi Hentrix is one of the most overrated guitarists, if he lived out to his 50s, I'd bet my kidney he wouldn't be number 1 let alone the top 10.
