every guitarist in the world is the best at there own style,

there is never a best and there never will be a best,


except Hendrix
#6
Well i think the best of all time...hmmmm...for me it would have to be good ol' Eddie Van Halen, but my FAVORITE guitarist is Synyster Gates, that man just rocks my nigh-unrockable socks XD
#7

possibly living: umm i have no idea :P
in his day: Jimmy Page - he was crazy with latering and solos and the such
dead: Hendrix- hes just a beast

OH THE FAIL

Herman li is the best.
#15
If I had to pick I'd go with Guthrie Govan... but there really is no best guitarist because it's all subjective..
#16
Definatley, Buckethead, fastest shredder in the world (Herman Li not even close) , good funk guitarist, surprisingly good at country, versitile, original, although slightly crazy.
#17
Buckethead
Though he gots some great technique and he's fast he also plays veeeeeery versatile and he can make beautiful songs
Not those brainless shred-songs in which as many notes as possible are played but it sound rubbish

Wow so far except for 1 hendrix comment and 1 Page comment, you all picked shredders.
Lets hear it for diversity.
For me my favourite and IMO the best LIVING guitarist is John Frusciante. He can cover so many different styles and he is able to play as fast or with as much feeling as any other guitarist on the planet.

hmm another 1 of those never ending threads...

Paul Gilbert is very diverse. Sure, he shreds, but he also plays pop songs, slow acoustic songs, all sorts.

Quoted for truth.

Although in honesty, there's no such thing as a "best" guitarist. But if there was, Gilbert would surely be in the running.

batio is the fastest recorded guitarist in his song "speed kills".


my favourite guitarist is tony iommi.
technically, he's not the best. but he has written the best riffs and is a great all around guitar player.
i think john 5 is an amazing guitarist too, he has a true understanding of the instrument and playing styles

then there is also rodrigo and gabirela, or django reindhart or samoth from emperor and zyklon, or jimmy page or lindsey buckingham.


its pretty impossible to name the best guitar player.
its easier to list favourites

You just can't say who's best, you can get different answers from everyone you ask.
