    It'd have to be Robert Johnson. He had to sell his soul to get that good. Look up his stuff.

    I picked Other because I think it should be Andres Segovia for singlehandedly resurrecting classical guitar.

    I would have chosen everyone on the list except for Kirk Hammet, I was extremely disapointed with St. Anger, and the Single Some Kind Of Monster. Those 2 CDs just made Metallica go down into the crapper.

    my vote goes to Jimi Hendrix. I don't think the measure of a a great guitartist is how technically skilled he is or how many notes he knows or can play per minute. My guage of how great a guitarist is is how much emotion/spirit can be poured into the instrument and made to flow out through the instrument's sound. In this repsect, i believe that no one touches Jimi and Stevie Ray
