Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

we all wonder who the best rock guitarist is??? simply you ave Van-H, Zakk Wylde, Randy Roads, Toni Iommi, Kirk Hammett, James Hetfeild, Satriani, Vai, Hendrix. my choice would be Van-H, zakk Wylde and Randy Roads who sadly died. But somewhere in the world sitting at home is someone who is better that all these, as guitaring is just a hobbie and will not take it up as a profecinal carier!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

i think the best ever guitarist is michael angelo and jason becker....no one can ever play like them....this two is the greatest ever guitarist....

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

guitarist vary in styles even when they are placed in the same catagory. Dimebag is a extreamly good technical soloist and i would rate as excellent but not the best.

the best is kirk hammet

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

Daron Malakian (System of a Down). He is the best. he can play extremely fast, really slow and sound good whatever he does. Nobody should disagree with me

The best guitarists that i know off are.... Allan Holdworth, Steve Morse, Coop Deville, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, John Pertucci, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Gilbert, Brian May, David Gilmour, My Guitar teacher, James Headfield, Steve Ray Vaughan, Rhandy Roads, Jeff Beck

If speed guitarists are included in this catagory for whatever reason then you can add Michael Angelo, Shawn Lane, and Jason Becker but there not exactly The best in the world

And i would also like to point out that...Kirk Hemmit, Dimebag Darrel, Eric Clapton, Slash, Bucket Head, Kieth Richards, Angus Young, Jimmy Page and Tonni Iomi, Eddie Van Halen etc... are GARBAGE, STOP GIVING THESE PEOPLE CREDIT FOR BEING THE BEST GUITARISTS IN THE WORLD WHEN THERE DEFINATLY NOT!!!!

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

: john frusciante is the best guitarist in the world today

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

It's whoever you think it is.

I think that R&R has had three transcendant players. By that I mean they made such a mark that their influence is inescapable and inarguable. Not that there aren't better guitarists from a technical sense, and none of the three are my personal favorites (I like them though), but all of them set the guitar playing world on its collective ear.

1. Chuck Berry - he invented rock and roll guitar
2. Jimi Hendrix - he re-invented it
3. Eddie Van Halen - he made it three dimensional

Now everyone's gonna say I've forgotten whoever their favorite is, but being as this is my opinion not theirs I'll assume I'm right until proven otherwise (that's humor, don't get in an uproar).

My favorites by the way are Keith Richards, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Billy Gibbons, Joe Walsh and Jimmy Page. And about a hundred others.

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

There are too many known greats to mention each with slightly different styles that make them unique. What makes them the best? the most imitated? most listened to? most influential? most notes in one beat? most technical? best with a pick? best fingerstyle? I could go on

Of all the greats mentioned I can't believe the man who said "You don't work a guitar, you play it." was left out. That's right -Les Paul.

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

:i think it is SLASH steve vai and hendrix it would be a good competition

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

Jimmy Hendrix and Jimmy Page belong right at the top, but your forgetting a couple great guitarists. Johnny Winter, Rick Derringer and Rory Gallagher can play with the best of them. And don't forget Eric Clapton.

Very Disappointed

I am very disappointed that everyone of you failed to mention Stevie Ray Vaughn! And what about Joe Satriani? well...my fav guitarists are: SRV, Satch, Hendrix, BB King, and Eric Clapton...but not in any order...except SRV first!

you are all idiots

youre idiots. you should be saying those are the people you like the most...not that they are the greatest. the world doesnt revolve around your lame bias and opinions. just becasue you think someone is great doesnt mean they are. its like saying red is the best color and then trying to convince everyone it is. grow up you little peckerheads

Re: you are all idiots

i agree brother ! all it is is a matter of taste . you know like a fav. ice cream . ROCK ON !!!!

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

joe satrian

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

it is me........i am the best guitarist in the world

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

Giuseppe Anastacio has to be the best.

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

Basically, no one can beat Jimmy Page. Ok maybe Hendrix was more innovative, and Chuck Berry was one of the first, but Page has such diverse talents. He uses all the effects to great use and not forget composing Stairway to heaven and Since i've been loving you... the best piece of blues music ever. Hendrix is also amazin. Talking more modernly, though, slash is great cos he is also diverse, playing acoustic, electric and doing rock, heavy meatal, blues and even slightly country. For feeling alone, Stevie Ray Vaughan is the best though...just beating Peter Green. But definitely Jimmy Page is the best...anyone who can start a band as amazing as Led Zeppelin is amazing.

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

The best ever is by far Trey Anastasio of Phish. He is more talent than any other person ever tried to even conceive.

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

I think that Hendrix has gotta come close, but I think that Richie Sambora is damn good.

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

I would have to say kirk hammet from metallica is the best guitarist in the world,he is multitalented with the guitar playing every style there is ,flamenco,heavy metal,rock,blues,jazz just to name a few he has extrodinary pace on the fret board he is an inspiration to all that admire him.

there is a best guitarist, he comes with all the capabilities and style of playing,his qualities are recognisable to steve vai, joe satriani, stevie ray vaughn, jeff healy, v-h, the list goes on and on, but all you have to do just ask him to play any song and he will, that guitarist is unknown and always will be, he is just some guy with his guitar and his amp making it work in his bedroom.

: Kirk Hammet-Metallica & Randy Rhoads

Re: who is the best rock guitarist in the world?

There's no answer for that. The music is an art. The musiciens are artists. It's like a Van gogh painting, or a Picasso one - which one is the best? The answer is: It depends of our personnal taste. If you want to apart the guitarist's finger ability from is music, in the end there's no musicien but a pure olimpic thecnicist.
