Okay – now we’re getting serious….moving into the category that is near and dear to me….the greatest rock guitarists…..again…these are my favorites….and since I know what I’m talking about this is also “the list” to go by.
- Jimi Hendrix – Greatest ever – no contest
- Stevie Ray Vaughn – Second greatest ever – and loved Hendrix. Go figure.
- Eric Clapton – Smooth.
- Eddie Van Halen – High marks for innovation. Single handedly changed rock guitar in 1977.
- James Hetfield – The riff-meister for Metallica. Also changed the way kids played in the 80’s.
- Robby Kreiger – The Doors guitarist. Brought unique finger picking style to rock guitar.
- Slash – GNR solos kick ass.
- Pete Townsend – Rock Chord God
- Jeff Beck – awesome
- Jimmy Page – gets marked down to #10 – for stealing a bunch of his tunes from others.
- David Gilmour – Pink Floyd chorus/echo laden solos rule. Tasty licks.
Anyway – that’s it…the top 10 favs.
