Sorry...but Roger (Strat335) is not on the list so I could not pick one

After him, I would choose Mel Galley, Robben Ford, B.B. King or Robin Trower....Durn, none of my top picks are on your list.

I guess of the ones above, Eric Johnson.

Coming back into edit after posting...I totally missed JJ Marsh on this list...I guess having only the one J through me off I would have picked JJ over Eric.

I can't cast a vote on this topic either, Susan,
the same way that I don't have a favorite GH album,
because my answer would depend on too many "variables."
Who, what, when, where, why...........

Now if you lined up all of these guys on this list,
(at least the ones that you COULD line up)
and gave them all a test.......say, have each guitarist play their
version of something simple like "Twinkle, twinkle, little star"
any way that they wanted....THEN....I think I could say "Blah-blah
is my favorite guitarist" because I liked what they did, given
the same song to play.

Although I could easily be bribed to vote for our own GHCP cowboy from Texas.

How about a few original names, from two British groups that are criminally overlooked by the music media, classic rock magazine excepted

Steve Wilson from the great prog metal group Porcupine Tree, check out the Deadwing album the best rock album of the past 10 years.

or

Bryan Josh from Mostly Autumn

Robert Fripp, Alan Holdsworth, Lary Carlton, Robin Trower, Mick Box, Adrian Belew, Joe Bonamossa, Tom Zamparelli....then I get to the list. A very subjective poll, but I will cast a vote on one of the choices.

Frank, you're talking my language, buddy - Robert Fripp is from another planet! The guy just about defies description, and so does his playing - mindblowing will have to do. Adrian Belew - such an unorthodox player and songwriter...he's played guitar with a knife and fork, he's practically recreated the undersea audio world of Jacques Cousteau, and he can create the sounds of a heartbroken violin...all on six strings. Belew is a mindbending guitarist.

some of these polls put too much preasure on me to choose just one. but as syched as i still am from tues. night, i'm going to go w/ a write-in and give my man Jeff Kollman some love. after seeing him live twice now, there is no doubt about it... he is the real deal!
(looks just like him too, doesn't it )

After thinking this over, I have to add a couple. I forgot Phil Keaggy.

Also, though, if you take fame out of the equation...there are two outstanding guitar players Roger has become friends with online.

Barry Richman - AWESOME FEELING!
http://www.myspace.com/barryrichmanband

and

Tomo Fujita - EXTREMELY FUNKY!!! (teacher at Berklee College of Music) - Wil Smith plays bass for him from time to time

Well, he does have a pretty big following...just not as widely known as say, Eric Johnson I think he is an incredible guitarist...and is just a cool person all around. I don't know him, but Roger trades e-mails and MySpace messages with him a lot. They like the way each other plays

gary moore has always been one of my favorites too, but i kind of feel like he's turned his back on his older rock-n-roll fans. he hasn't put out a rock album since still got the blues came out. i thought his best time period was the corridor of power/ run for cover era. (run for cover , of course containing the 2 great songs from our very own 'big daddy" all messed up and reach for the sky). so, for his rock fans, we're left holding on to ourselfs w/ nothing to say except "we want moore"

Of course I would expect Ritchie to rank pretty high here- and certainly you couldn't list everyone- so like Frank I voted from my favorite from the list- and it had to be Jeff Beck- but had you listed Robin Trower or Frank Marino... it would have been a tougher choice!

I know I'm boring but I went with Jimmy Page. Just a huge, huge fan of this man and everything his accomplished. Second choice was Ritchie, of course

right on about Gary moore. It has been a LONG time since he put a good cd out but he still rates highly in my book. Hopefully one day we can get a good rock CD on out him again.

jimmy page rulez my world

he has a real fast technique and a bluesy sound

tommy bolin has a cooool american funk style of playing had he lived some more years

he would have been at the same level as blackmore and page

r.blackmore has a very good picking style iiiiiiiilove it and i love his neo classical feeling

tony iommi is a gitar demon though with his down tuned doooom style

its hard to say which one is better cause every one is better by his own way

peace

#1 for me is Mr. Hendrix.
I grew up on Hendrix and voted for him.
Trower is my second choice (not on the list).
My third favorite is a little tougher to decide...i'll say Jimmy Page.
After that, hmmmmmmmm.
I love Jake E. Lee's playing in Badlands,
and Blackmore's a legend as well.
Lots of great heroes on the list
and lots of other great mentions too.
Don't forget about the great George Harrison or Mr. Mick Box.
- and don't forget Warren Haynes.



...everyday, wheels are turnin'

Good to see another with an appreciation for the marvelous Mick Box who may be the MOST underrated superstar in Rock and Roll.

OOPS ~
I think that we forgot to mention the guy who's been the reason,
why we can even have a list of spectacular guitarists like this.

"How high the moon" might not be our favorite song,
but the name Les Paul belongs somewhere in this thread.

He's the guy who opened the can.
The above-named worms...........followed.

For me i have to go for Jeff Beck from those on the list but Tommy Bolin would be close behind.Teaser is one of my all time favourite albums.
Steve Lukather would be my all time favourite but hes not on the list.Rick Derringer is pretty good as well "Derringer Live" superb.
