I went with Van Halen, Hendrix, and Vai. Maybe not the three best on the list, but certainly my favorite. Steve Vai is phenomenal.

Once again, only room for 10. It's all subjective anyway.

Its weird that Hendrix is leading the votes. I've been tempted to put him in the overrated thread.

I love Santana's music. Plus he always seems to get the perfect artist to duet with on the track.

Although not truly a "guitarist", I'll keep him in mind for when I start the "Greatest Inbred Hillbilly Picker Of All Time" thread. Greatest Guitarist Of All-Time. 1797695198


This guy will be the second entrant in that one.

I voted Hendrix, SRV and Angus respectively. Each influenced their genre heavily, and in my opinion, it's not just skill, it's influence. If it was skill alone, i'd knock Hendrix and Angus off their. I play their songs like it's nothing Greatest Guitarist Of All-Time. 1797695198

Also, Jack White was voted pretty high up their in just about every "Greatest Guitarists" list.

A little more Jack White. I don't think his bands are the best, but he's a talent.





But then again, some of his vocal tricks he does really differs him. If it helps, he was in a documentary with The Edge and Jimmy Paige called "It Might Get Loud"

I think George Harrison may be a great addition to the list, along with John Petrucci from Dream Theater.

I went with BB King, SRV, and EVH. I probably would've had Zakk Wylde right up there as well if he was an option.

Dangerous question. As dangerous as asking who is the greatest drummer of all time (reference the Rush and Neil Peart retirement thread).

I went with Hendrix, Zappa, and Les Paul. Realistically, the clear majority have a good argument at being "the best".

You could probably throw David Gilmour on that list as well.
