This is just the exact same as the thread (Guitar Brand Elimination Battle) but its to find the greatest guitar Player of all time.
I have came up with 10 guitarists:

Slash
Jimi Hendrix
Jimmy Page
Kirk Hammet
Rhandy Rhoads
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Eddie Van Halen
Dave Gilmour
Brian May
Joe Satriani

Each guitarist will start off with a health of 20
and you can heal only one guitarist by adding 1 more point and hurt only one guitarist by taking off a point.
When a player has 0 points they are eliminated and the last player standing is hereby the greatest guitar player of all time.
So ill start off:

Slash-20
Jimi Hendrix-21 HEAL
Jimmy Page-20
Kirk Hammet-20
Rhandy Rhoads-20
Stevie Ray Vaughan-20
Eddie Van Halen-20
Dave Gilmour-20
Brian May-20
Joe Satriani-19 HURT

dont get mad because you forgot to put guitarists or dont think theyre good(which would make you a dumbass). you needed to put in at least 10 more guitarists. a lot of those guys on the list arent even great guitarists. wtf jimi hendrix?? he's not even that good. he may have changed rock forever, but he's like the worst on the list and there are many better guitarists than him

ill make a new thread about 10 of the greatest guitarist
so list the 10 best guitar players in order of the greatness
if you think this thread is crap this is your chance to list who YOU think are the 10 greatest guitarists
#34
This list is missing a ton of great players - where's Al DiMeola? Guthrie Govan? Buckethead? Allan Holdsworth? Bumblefoot? Steve Vai? John Petrucci? (and on and on) Your list only has the great players of yesteryear. Really, you could've done better by making the list bigger.

There is no greatest or best guitar player. Because the players the you guys have mentioned do not play the same style of music.
