If there is already a thread like this its not my problem. I used the search bar and I did not find one. Actually I did, but not with the ones in this thread. THATS NOT THE POINT!

Anyway, since this is a guitar website, and since there is talk of so many amazing guitarists. I would like to find out which one the pit thinks is the best.

Why the pit, well for the simple reason that it has by far more people in it than any other forum.

So yeah, which of these guitarists is the best.

Also, if you have another one you think is better, please tell us.

Have fun.
VERY METAL!

It's all subjective to style and taste. There is no "perfect guitarist".

Threads like this are so pointless and overdone.

This is essentially a VS thread. It's just that the word VS doesn't appear anywhere.

He plays with knowledge of theory, which means that is looked down upon within the feeling community!

you left jimmy page and jimi hendrix off. actually this is impossible. i can think of 10 guitarist that should be in the chase over some of those guys.

you should make the question a bit more specific. technical ability? song writting? diversity? dynamics? sound? music is about sound and preference, not who's nuber one. i like some over others for different reasons.

I don't like a single guitarist on your list. Guitarists that can convey emotion through their playing are much more interesting. Jack White's probably my favorite guitarist playing now.

Is this feeling thing like a meme that I missed? I don't visit the Pit often enough to be a regular.


Not really. I started doing it to mock people who put emphasis on playing with feeling and dismissing shred as emotionless bullshit. People tend to take me seriously, though, which is very, very funny. I occasionally get people to join in on the mockery.

Ok there were only ten spots so I had to think of some famous guitarists to put up there. And I said to say if you have a favorite that isn't on the list.

As for personal taste, isn't that what this is all about?
