"Best" in what sense I wondered so my approach was regarding who meant the most for guitar music not who's faster or more technical. Malmsteen, Hendrix, Clapton and Eddie Van Halen. Couldn't vote for neither Gary Moore nor Peter Green.

And I'm very surprised Eddie van Halen only got 4 votes so far ohmy.gif Must be the first time in the history of a guitar forum laugh.gif ...and *cough*Slash*hrm* should be proud to have made it to the list rolleyes.gif I mean, sure he's rock n roll and all but I rate f.ex Dave Navarro a lot lot lot lot higher.


Great list though, plenty of choices and I appreciate I could pick more than one - which always is almost impossible smile.gif

Can we take Kirk Hammet off that list and replace him with Jeff Loomis? Please?


We have been here before but you seem to bash Metallica in 90% of your posts. I can only speak for me but it is realy getting aggravating dude.

If you don't like Kirk then don't vote for him. Loomis is great though.

Well.. I think it would be kinda lame if I had a top five and number one is... TADAA: Other!!

I'm sorry if the list isn't sufficient, but I can't make a list with a hundred names, so I only picked the ones with a chance to win!

Who says im bashing metallica? i just dont think we should put kirk hammet alongside guthrie govan, John petrucci and steve vai, not even the same kind of guitar playing.
Didnt mean to offend anyone.

Where are players like Wes Montgomery, Pat Metheny, Paco De Lucia, Robert Johnson?

I have to say biggest names that left biggest breakthroughs are Hendrix, EVH, SRV, Satriani

I can not vote for in a list that does not include Frusciante. Sorry, Kaz. smile.gif I know it may be a bit of an odd choice, but I just love every note he makes when he touches his guitar.

I guess you guys should be happy I didn't mention Kurt Cobain. tongue.gif

Sorry bout that, I love frusciante myself tongue.gif I just couldn't include all guitarist, the list would be immense tongue.gif I tried to pick the ones who have a chance at winning. And here at GMC I don't think Frusciante would have made it to the Top 5, although I would've like that tongue.gif I wrote the huge Wiki article on him wink.gif

UPDATE: Satriani has taken the lead in front of Vai!!
