    This is just a poll to see who everyone thinks is the greatest guitarist...I didn't see any on this topic yet, so I figured I'd add it... ;)
    I select Yngwie Malmsteen

    How can you not have Buckethead in there? He gets my vote. He's got the insane skills and sick amounts of creativity to back it up.

    Buckethead wasn't in there because, simply I didn't feel that he was good enough. All he is really doing right now is playing songs others made famous (His GnR stint)..But vote is Okay for other...

    Buckethead not good enough?? Have you even heard him besides GNR?? And he still is putting out records while doing the GNR thing. In fact a hell of lot of them. Electric Tears, Bermuda Triangle for start. Not to mention he is now playing with Les Claypool, Bernie Worell (Parlament/Funkadelic), and Brain (also from Primus and many Buckethead albums. They are even performing Feb 7th in San Francisco (sold out of course).

    I still don't really feel that he has the technical back ground to be named with those that I mentioned...but that is my opinion...You have your's and I respect that, so, next time I do a poll like this...I will put in buckethead...LOL

    I'm not trying to force it I just don't know how you can say that hehe. He's easily as technically skilled as anyone else you listed (except Yngwie... but not horribly far off). Having Paul Gilbert as a teacher doesn't hurt. I mean Slash has a technical background? It's all good just don't leave out the Bucket man next time :thumbsup:

    My two bobs worth, for what it's worth, is that Pat Metheny is the most amazing guitarist on the planet - that I've heard - ; )

    Watch Song Remains the Same, the DVD for Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page is the best.

    You have predictably gone for those acrobatic players. What about Neil Young and Tom Verlaine? And Phil Manzanera always plays interesting parts rather than 200mph self indulgent solos.

    I'm with you paulprogram, 200 miles an hour loses any melody for me.

    Have you ever played any of Jimi Hendrix's guitar licks? I only ever played one, he is not an easy guy to live up to.
