    there is no real best guitarist because of all the different styles, you cant really compare. like trying to compare stevie ray vaughn who was an amazing blues player to someone like alex skolnick who is an amazing jazz player, well now he is. it just cant happen. but if you wanted to compare say, marty friedman formerly of megadeth and kirk hammett, that would be different. but best guitarist IMHO is all about person taste.

    I disagree. I think michael romeo of symphony x is the greatest guitar player ever. Either him or Alexi!!!! CoB and Sinergy rule.

    I have a lot of guitarists that I am in awe of...

    I saw Joe Satriani earlier this year for the first time... very impressive!

    I've also had the opportunity to see (and briefly shake hands with) Vinnie Moore - I've always liked his sound too.

    Then there's Tony Macalpine - Edge Of Insanity anyone?

    Marty Friedman and Jason Becker...

    I love David Chastain's stuff too.

    I'm sure I could add a few more to this list if I thought about it, but what's the point.

    Each of these guitarists brings something to the table I like, so I can't call a favorite skill wise.

    My favorite guitarists are Sara and JoJo though... and they're cute too!

    "I think michael romeo of symphony x is the greatest guitar player ever."

    In that case, why don't you just say Yngwank Malmsteenk is your favorite guitarist? :lol:

    I agree with you 100%.

    My favorite would be Vito Bratta. He had some great sound.

    Thank You Linda!

    Yes... the amazing Mr. Vai - how could I forget?

    I also forgot your ex-label mate, Tom Morello (Lock Up/Geffen)... for his innovations.

    Happy Holiday Season!

    Give this guy a try, he's a very good friend of mine Don Kush. He plays with all kinds of alternate tunings and interesting techniques. He uses a sub-woofer at his live shows and you wouldn't think an acoustic guitar and a sub go together, but holy spit! Check out his Harp Guitar too. I think you'll like him.

    Alexi Laiho is an excellent guitarist, a true wizard. He's still young yet, definitely worth keeping an eye on...
