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!

haha, the rolling stones list is horrible! I don\'t know what they were thinking... cmon... kurt cobain is #7 and niether Paul nor Buckethead is even on that list? Theres just no logic to that.


Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.


Sort of in order

2. Frank Zappa
3. John McLaughlin
4. Steve Vai
5. Tommy Bolin
6.  Jimi
7.  Bill Harkleroad - some would argue about this last entry
