    Who Is The Best Guitar Player Of All Time?

    Who do you think is the all time best guitar player that has ever lived?

    I would say either Tony Iommi (of Black Sabbath) simply because he revolutionized the way the guitar was played being the first heavy metal guitarist.

    Or Michael Angelo Batio (Of Nitro) because of his extreme shredding and his ambidextrous guitar playing (or the "double guitar" as many people call it).

    The best guitar player who has ever lived, ah thats better, pity you had to spoil it with the absurd 'all time' bit.  But to answer the additional information I would have to go with, Andre Segovia, and say that he is the best guitarist I have ever heard, followed by, Bert Jansch, and John Renbourne.

    There are so many great ones, but Van Halen and Hendrix will always be the 2 best in my book.  Guys like Alexi Laiho, Jeff Loomis and Herman Li blow my mind, but I'd still stick by VH and Jimi.  If you make me pick one I'll go with Van Halen. :-)
