Best Guitar players of all time

Recommended Posts

I'm not a musician so I don't know if he's technically the best, but for overall effect and pure rock 'n roll strut, the great Jimmy Page. Have you seen him lately? He's the coolest 65 year old on the planet!
Very impressive that he recently got a country music award...ooops, that was Robert.

Did anybody mention Frank Marino? ???

For years and years, he was either #1 or #2 among my favourite all-time guitarists. Here is my top 5 which hasn't changed for a loooooong time -

1) SRV

2) Frank Marino

3) Gary Richrath

4) Johnny Winter

5) Jake E. Lee

Oh, and #6 for that same duration has been -

6) John, Paul & George (yes, they are one cohesive unit)

For the next dozen or so, I'm still not sure of what order -

- Joe Satriani (probably 7th)

- Frank Zappa

- Joe Walsh

- Kim Mitchell


- Nuno Bettencourt

- Pat Travers

- Alvin Lee

- Hendrix

- Jose Feliciano

etc. Of course I'm forgettin' some.

I'm too lazy to read all this.

Hopefully someone has mentioned Mark Knopfler, Steve Vai, Jan Akkerman (from Focus), Franny Beecher (from Bill Haley & His Comets) and Terry Cath?

Most of those have been.
