    Santana and Knopfler are my personal faves after Hendrix.

    Yngwie Malmsteen is a monster. Plain and simple. I believe that him and Satriani go way back, also (if story holds true, I believe that he trained under Satriani for a bit).

    I thought Yngwie was born perfect and never needed anybody to train him. I saw him back in '86. He opened for Triumph. He was pretty good. My girlfriend back then was a huge fan of his. I puked during the show.

    Tull and Aerosmith are more favorites.. Hell most of the bands from the 70's were great!

    While he is not my personal favorite I find it hard to believe Eddie Van Halen has not been mentioned.

    I agree you can't talk about the best without Hendrix right there in the mix.

    There are lots of great players out there, alive and dead. They picked Hendrix because of how influential and innovative he was and how much the whole idea of rock and roll guitar playing is a product of what he was doing.

    Johnnie Winter is the real deal and is on my list. When they wheel him out to play Hwy 61 on Claptons Crossroads concert Derek Trucks can believe what he's seeing.

    I guess since it's called "100 Greatest" rather than "100 Best" I can live with the fact that Keith Richards is #4 while SRV is way down at #12. Still, it's hard to believe that genius players like Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, Al Di Miola, Pat Metheny, Paco De Lucia, and Julian Bream aren't even mentioned. Ground breakers every one. The instrument would not be played the way it is today without them.

    Agreed. There are a lot of Spanish/flamenco guitarists that are just STOOPID good, that would not get recognition in a poll like this either.

    Ya know. I was watching something -YEARS AGO - that had Roy Clark as a guest,
    (might've been the Tonight Show) & he played the SH*T out of a guitar & banjo &
    TOTALLY floored me. He cranked out a Rock & Roll riff that would've made his mama
    proud. He's been around for years & between the Smothers Brothers & Hee Haw,
    I just figgered he was an ole country boy. NOT! That MAN can flat out PLAY!

    Roy Clark is one of the grates. He can play anything that makes noise. I seen him on something years ago he played a meanwicked trumpet,guitar,banjo,fiddle, and drums. He is just a natural music man. But I like Joe Walsh. :)

    And frankly, you guitar player could not survive without your bass player! (guess which instrument I play?)

    Anyone can play skinny strings, but watch my man Vic teach you a lesson on how to play fat strings

    I've seen John Butler and Victor...Victor was too much. Thought I'd be able to rip off a few things by watching him...no such luck. I mostly play guitar, but started out on the bass. He's in a whole nother universe. First time I ever saw someone slide a pinch harmonic on the bass. He has way too much fun to be a bass player. :)

    I know what you mean. I dont know whether to hate him or worship at his feet!

    He's currently on tour with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. I'll go see him and see some virtuoso playing from all of those guys.
