Who is your favourite guitarist, and why?


Also, if you have a favourite song by your favourite guitarist, then I want to know what it is. Please don't list singers who happen to pose with guitars on stage - just real guitarist, the guy's who don't have to sing, but singers that play well are welcome too, of course.

    I read about his son finding out that his hero, Hendrix, had told him he'd stole some of the licks he played from Buddy. The son hadn't realized how good his dad was.

    I really loved Jeff Beck's jazz fusion stage...when he did the instrumental albums like "Blow By Blow," and "Wired!"

    I don't know Mr. Fripp very well, but I've seen Kottke in concert years ago. Besides being an amazing guitarist, Leo is also a masterful performer who does terrific storytelling and comedy :)

    For some weird reasons...I just never liked Stevie until after he'd died. I wasn't into that twangy blues sound. I know now how good he was though!

    Django was just scary. Hard to comprehend how he could play like that.

    He was very wild as a guitarist. I wonder how much being left handed played into how different his style was.

    I'm right there with you...except I do like to listen to some of the old heavy blues rock. I just prefer acoustic guitar music.

    I'm told Keith has some mysterious tunings...he doesn't let folks near his guitars...because he doesn't want people to know how he's got the strings tuned!.

    I've about decided the question is unanswerable. I can't select a "best answer" here either, I don't guess.
