Report Who is (or was) the worlds best guitarist? in Music Discussion Posted June 20, 2004 All the 1's mentioned are great at 1 style. I recently seen Roy Clark do a concert for a PBS station. This wasn't country, but classical in nature and was some really great guitar playing. I also have Randy Rhoads at the top of my list, but cant seem to forget about a man named Junior Brown. He has a lap steel and six string double-neck, and can play the s&*# out of it.I think anyone can pick 1 style and be great at it; it's those that are great at many styles that should be at the top of the list.
