My favorite are 1) Claudio Sanchez 2) Omar Rodriguez-Lopez 3) B.B. King

Best are 1) Hendrix 2) Clapton 3) Herman Li ( THough I know I can't put him in the same class as the old masters he still is HIGHLY technically skilled)

GO! And let the Flaming Begin

Favorites: Jimmy Page, Alex Lifeson, and David Gilomour

Best: Alex Lifeson, David Gilmour, and Eric Clapton

Note: Jimmy Page is my favorite and he is the reason I play guitar, but I know he is not the best. It's hard for met to say, but it is the truth.

You can't say who the best guitarists are. It's all preference. So wouldn't your favorite also be the best in this case?

Anyway. My three favorite/best guitarists are Jimmy Page, Derek Trucks, and Jack White. Jack not really as a guitarist but as a musician.

Favorites


1. Ruiza (D)
2. Yngwie or Laiho (Bodom) or Loomis (Nevermore)
3. EVH or Synyster Gates or Jari Mäenpää (Wintersun)


Best overall


1. EVH (the tone, the taste, the riffs, the solos, the innovation....)
2. Steve Vai
3. Guthrie Govan


best metal/shred

1. Jari Mäenpää (really his solos are incredibly technical yet so catchy. Shredders everywhere should learn from him how its done)
2. Yngwie (legend, innovater, etc)
3. Loomis (because he can riff like hell as well, something most shredders cant do for ****)


Quote by Tirkaz
Chuck Schuldiner is the best. He is also my favorite.

/thread.



Respect. I love him too. Just couldn't put him above Loomis.

Harman Li is not one of the three best guitarists in the world. Just because you're wowed by his studio enhanced wankfests does not make him a great guitarist.

Speed means **** all when you can't write a decent meldoy. God damn, I hate it when people overhype Hemran Li. Fair enough, we all have our opinions, but if Herman Li is one of the three greatest guitarists, I shall weep for the future of rock music.
