There are loads of great guitarists from other generations that our generation of music fans remember and will do forever. But annoyingly, there are some who most people around my age (18) wouldnt recognise. Sure we all know clapton, hendrix, page, but who do you feel doesnt have enough recognition nowadays?

Ill go with Lindsay Buckingham from fleetwood mac. Most of my friends dont even know his name, and some have never even heard of the Mac!!! He is amazing, i'd recognise his playing a mile off because he has his own style. Alot of great guitar work, great songwriter too, definitely needs to be more known among the musical youth today!!

Jerry Garcia, Peter Green, Jeff Beck. Just a couple old skool legends there for you.

Meh, I don't see the need to recognise older guitarists if they don't apply to me, like that guy from Fleetwood Mac. I don't like them that much, I never, ever listen to them, and I could name a thousand guitarists I feel are more inspirational to me than him.

It's all subjective to taste.

I completely agree with you on Jeff Beck, I've been listening to him a lot recently and I'm trying to turn my friend on to him too - I was playing him constipated duck (quite possibly the best song name ever) the other day and a few other songs from Blow By Blow and Beck's Guitar Shop.

Another terribly under appreciated/unknown guitarist is Rory Gallagher.

He's well known around here.

I'm surprised, yet also this gives weight to my point, that no one remembers Duane Allman.

john petrucci
i think hes very ignored especially by other guitarists i know
hes technically brilliant and he can reach break neck speeds if he wants to
also the solo in under a glass moon is pure awesome, best guitar solo ever in my opinion

Not on here he's not, but in real life, definitely.

Under a Glass Moon is not his best solo by any means, either.

Lines in the Sand is better.

...?

It's mainly other guitarists/musicians that listen to Dream Theater...I think he's very respected in those circles. He's not mainstream, but a lot of people worship Dream Theater.

Robin Trower, Rory Gallagher, Tony Iommi (everyone loves sabbath, but no one mentions Tony), Mick Ronson, Phil Manzanarek, Pete Townshend...

the list just goes on and on :P

All youngsters who start playing guitar are looking at Vai, Satriani, Dimebag, all those guys whom play very fast, but the true emotion of playing guitar was back in the '60s and '70s!

- Fender Strat (1988, Japan)
- Epiphone Les Paul (2008, Korea,)
- Epiphone Sheraton (1988, Korea)
- Morgan WG20GEN (2003, Norway)
and some stuff non-used stuff for sale/trade in the Netherlands

I know most of my friends wouldn't know who Buddy guy, BB King, Robert Cray or Eric Johnson is.
#22
And to the bloke who said Joe Strummer - he wasn't really much of a guitarist. He was awesome, but Mick Jones did all the leads and stuff on The Clash's work
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!

Bob Brozman. He is a truly fantastic guitarist, and he's been around for longer than most of us have been alive, yet few people know him.
Now 100% humour free, in accordance with the rules.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. No, no, no.

That's complete rubbish about emotion. I'm not alone when I say that the word emotion gets batted around too often and too ignorantly on these forums, especially when compared to fast guitarists. My favourite guitarist is Jo Satriani. Watch him on stage and try and tell me there's no emotion in his playing. Guitarists should be allowed to appreciate who they want to appreciate, regardless of what other people think and who they think 'must be' recognised.

Rory Gallagher! as already mentioned

Elliot Randall from Steely Dan, perfect example of his work is the solos in reeling in the years. Gary Rossington, Mark Knopfler and Gary Moore.
My Gear:
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Fender MIM Stratocaster
Yamaha Pacifica 112v
Epiphone G-400
Cheap acoustic


Roland Cube 30X
USA Big Muff PI
Dunlop Crybaby Wah GCB-95

Robben Ford

Though he's definitely well respected in the world of jazz and blues (at least the real life circles) ...

Lolololol

I have a John Lee Hooker avatar, does that scream metalhead to you? (although I do enjoy teh br00tal metalz)

'Sall right though. Tony Iommi wrote THE best metal riffs.

Quote by Don't Panic Ok?

Yes, this. As well as Django Reinhardt.

Thank you for mentioning the 2 fingered wonder. He could shred with just 2 fingers!! Gypsy Jazz for the win.

And as far as Wes goes, I think he gets overshadowed a little by Joe Pass, as far as notoriety.

Add Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry to the list.

Definitely. Django was an awesome player - it astound me he was missing half his finger.

Also, he has an awesome name.
