Well I for one am glad Bob was able to sort it out ... laffs
BB king .......for best lifetime use of a pentatonic scale
Freddie King ............best raw emotion from one note
Johnny Winter..........best slide guitar influence on ANYONE
Albert King .............. inspired SRV ....
Santana ..................the Beauty of one note
Joe Satriani .............Always with me/you
Steve Vai ................The Attitude Song
Frank Zappa ........... comedy in rock
more to come..... George Harrison,Alan Holdsworth Frank Gambale, Albert Lee, Arlen Roth Steve Morse, Ry Cooder,Rory Gallagher, Jimmie Page, Jeff Beck ..............
ps Kirk Hammet sucks
His equipment rack is one of the greatest tho!
Billy Joe Armstong is NO DOUBT one of the Greatest guitar players. If YoU ever seen him in concert then u would all agree.
:Moved to Guitar Forum
It's great to see BB King, Freddie King and Albert King recognized. Guys like SRV, Hendrix, Clapton to name a few, were influnced by many of the other blues greats like:
John Lee Hooker
I could go on and on
hmm how can u put kirk hammet agains hendrix thats a joke bb king is tight he cant sing and play guitar at the same time though thats y u notice he stops and sings (for the ones who did not know) on the poll needs alot more i was lookin for van halen page steve ray and etc.. everyones mention them
16 votes ...that's it so far .....c'mon ppl let's hear from ya
ps BB can sing and play at the same time, he choses those notes as embellishments to his voice. try to play like him and you'll discover it aint easy shutting up and you'll end up with 'wankeritis'
Its quite hard in dealing in the area of the arts to say who is the best at something because artists work will affect listeners in different and more personal ways.
1 - Marc Knofler
2 - Santana
3 - Brian May
4 - Eddie Van Halen
5 - Eric Clapton
6 - Hank Marvin
7 - Walter Trout
8 - Jimmy Page
9 - Gary Moore
10 - Jimi Hendrix
WAY TOO HARD TO CHOOSE!
I BASED MY CHOICES ON FEEL, STYLE AND INFLUENCE
SORRY METAL HEADS THE BLUES RULE!!!
1 ERIC CLAPTON/BB KING/ ALBERT KING
2 FREDDIE KING/PETER GREEN/KEITH RICHARDS/ BEN HARPER
Kirk Hammet back in the day was awsome. Theres nothing like oldschool metallica
ah I'm glad that someone mentioned Joe Satriani. He would've been an easy choice for a greatest guitarist poll.
I play guitar. and watch a lot of instructional videos from guitar greats some named above. and without fell , they all seem to say they were influenced or inspired by (Jimmy Page) of Zepp. I must say he's one of my favorites.
Kurt Cobain is by far the best
Also up their with the best is The Guitarist from Presidents of USA
I think alternative guitar is not as easy as poeple say, its very technical
Who is SRV??
