best guitarist of all time?
Eddie Van Halen, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Brian May, take your pick, because I can't decide. :)
Probably Jimmi Hendrix.
I'll go with Hendrix.
Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads and "Satchel" from Steel Panther.
Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, any of the above.... They Are all great...
Don't forget Tom Morello
Brian May is quite obviously the best guitarist ever born
Vic Flick (James Bond) and Hendrix
Hendrix is in a class all by its self. Van Halen, Slash, Eric Clapton. BB king, Robert Plant... Endless list of greats.
No contest, it's Jimi Hendrix
Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Jack White, Van Halen, Duane Allman, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Keith Richards,
Some say Django Rhinehart (1910-1953). There are recordings to be found. He was a Gypsy/French guitarist. 1960's Rolling Stone magazine articles always raised his name when Hendrix, Clapton or jazz players were mentioned.
Check out Monty Montgomery and Stanley Jordan. They are beyond good. Both must rank with the best.
