Brian May = AMAZING
Mark Knopfler = AMAZING
Eric Clapton = AMAZING
Joe Satriani = AMAZING


Jimi Hendrix was fantastic, but I think most of his popularity is for the wrong reasons. People think he was an amazing guitar player, but the real thing he did that was amazing was his influence on future guitar players. Hendrix, along with the band Blue Cheer, helped to spawn that style of rock & roll guitar playing. He was fantastic, but it was really his influence that is awesome and should be recognized more. Here is a list of my own favorite rock guitar legends

Robbie Krieger - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DfG1SNydnc (this isn't the version I wanted, but what can you do)

Jimmy Page - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z509jW0fg2c

Steve Vai - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IrWyZ0KZuk

Not at all.... i just think a lot of people fail to recognize how much he actually influenced the genre as a whole.... people just recognize him for being a good guitar player, not for being a figurehead for a generation

ok, i don't want anyone to take this the wrong way.
I like Steve Vai, I think he is an amazing musician and guitarist
but I very much dislike his music, it doesn't appeal to me at all
I don't know why, It just doesn't. He is AMAZING at guitar, but
I hate his music.

Did you actually listen to that song I posted? That is one song that damn near brought me to tears when I first heard it.... I don't know why. If I post a few of my favorites, will you listen to them? I will only post a few, so it doesn't drag on if you really don't like it

Alot of people do. His music is oriented towards, in my opinion, a more either experimental or artistic crowd of guitarists, which I think every guitarist is, but he blends alot more orchestra and art with his music. He has some exceptional songs, i just like the more rough and rootsy and less meticulous guitar style. I also believe he is kinda stuck in his own style and hasn't tried to expand on what he is good at, rock.

Again, fantastic musician, he is a musical genius. But I don't know, I think he is just stuck in his own time.

I really don't get the Hendrix fanaticism.

Slash is the king of rock guitarists: While Vai is my personal favourite guitarist, I don't really count instrumental artists against the guys in bands.

Slash had feel, dirt, melody, technicallity, style... he was the guitarist with no faults, when Appetitie came out, there wasn't a man out there who could touch him: how the mighty have fallen. Better with a wah wah pedal than Hendrix by a mile.

It's called reality and you can indulge anytime, anywhere should you chose to do so.

Are you people deaf? Have you actually tried to play the Sweet Child o' Mine solo? It seems simple enough, but getting the nuance he puts into it is crazy. You have heard Appetite for Destruction haven't you.

We could argue all day, taste is subjective, and we'll never agree: but as someone who's played guitar for nearly 15 years, Slash gets my vote.

Slash is good, but he is also severely overrated. His blues/rock style is very good, but he lacks in some areas. I think he is a fantastic guitar player, but he definitely is not the best

He's good, but certainly nowhere near the best.
