Greatest Guitarists - Give me your list!

Welcome to Rossington Land

Here is my list thus far of the greatest guitarists of all time (in order):

1. Buckethead
2. Eric Clapton
3. Eddie Van Halen
4. Paul Gilbert
5. Joe Satriani
6. Randy Rhoads

This is mostly based on what I personally like to listen to, but I also tried to factor in technical skill, soloing, song-writing, speed, riffs, influence, etc.

Obviously everyone will have different lists, but we can all agree on one thing - anything tops the Rolling Stone list!

This page contains a disturbingly low quantity of Shawn Lane. Please do your best to remedy this.
