I would have to say Gary Rossington from Lynyrd Skynyrd. They are my favorite band and Rossington is an awesome guitarist with a very laid back approach to the guitar.

Albert Collins...the master of the telecaster...The iceman!!!

He have a very cool approach to the blues. His attack to the leads were great, he was not afraid of experimenting, and his tone was unmatched. He was also a great songwriter. one of the greats!

Eddie Van Halen is one of my favorites also. I don't know if you read guitar world magazine, but they had a good interview with him and his son Wolf in this months issue.

When you say the greatest player of all time, are you being genre specific or are you talking about the best all rounder?

Apologies. I misread the question. Favorites being, of cause, a matter of personal choice.

My favorite player must be Michael Hedges or Chet Atkins. They really paved the road for the music I listen to today. They are a huge influence on so many people, and myself, that I don't think there could be any other wya of putting it.

My vote = Michael Hedges.

As I've moved through the years, my taste in music has changed quite a bit. My first recollections are like, late 50's early 60's when (as a child of about 6-7 I wanted to play like Eddie Cochrane and Bert Weedon.Then E.C came along and blew everyone away. Then Beck,Paige Blackmore and Hendrix. All taking guitarmanship to new heights. I think that anyones favourite guitarist is going to be the one that, not only inspires you the most over the most number of years, but also the one you most enjoy listening to, which is not necessarily the same thing.
I consider myself really lucky 'cause the one who inspired me the most is also the one I love listening to the most and, the icing on the cake, he's been 'doing his thing' for nearly 50 years now, and thats Richie Blackmore. Electric or acoustic, he's the guvnor as far as I'm concerned!

Sounds about the right way round Notim, I can never be sure these days my 'brain cells' are going down faster than Paris Hilton on a boys night out!

I don't have a favorite guitarist. I listen to lots of different guitarists and other instrumentalists and try to incorporate their playing styles into my own playing.

Tom Morello for most of my lead style stuff, James Hetfield for Rhythm. Chris Profit & Jeff Nelson are also a pretty strong influence to me at the moment as I'm learning a few of there band's songs.

who is Tommy Emmanuel?

What about Beck? or Bach?

remember that being a musician is not only about how you play and perform but how you express your self.

Some of the local boys around my parts are Slipknot, Index Case, 39 parallel. not sure if they are any good but i thought i would trow it out becuase it has nothig to do with this forum.

Shutting up now...

Paul Simon
Might be easy to play his songs around a camp fire but nearly impossible to play them the way he does.

James Taylor
Same reason.

Dave Matthews
DAMN

I can see what you are saying but I don't think slash could sell out night after night with just a him and his guitar. While James Dave and Paul could stand and play all night long to packed houses. Lead guitarists are very talented but most need a band to fill out the sound. But that's why there is always an acoustic room in guitar shops. We scare easily.

Mattias IA Eklundh is brilliant. Other than that, I like the obvious guitarists (Hendrix, Page, Clapton). Oh, and I like some Wes Montgomery stuff (mainly off the album The Incredible Jazz Guitar).

ive got to agree with telecrater on Albert Collins. you dont see his name pop up often, but he was absolutely amazing and produced i sound that has gone unduplicated.

Onya mattmurray for voting Tommy Emmanuel. Have a look on Youtube for Andrew White. Sensational (Fingering Style) guitar playing. Rodrigo and Gabriella. Their version of Stairway to Heaven has to be seen to be believed. Paul Kelly for combining guitar with story telling. Ben Harper, Jack Johnson for his cruzy attitude. Ian Moss of Cold Chisel

soy.el.che is by far the best and of course my favorite.

As for a second, but close first, Stevie Ray Vaughan... He did the Blues rock thing with so much soul, my speakers bleed every time I crank him up, which reminds me, I need to replace those damn speakers again!

What about Lenny Kravitz...

Some of his songs really SUCK, but he has a few that I like.

I know... feel free to laugh and make jokes : )

can't really say i have a favorite because of the variety of music i listen too.
just a few off the top of my head are Eddie V.H,Stevie ray,Eric Johnson,Zakk W,Aungus Y,Steve Vai,Randy Rhodes and don't hate me for this one but Joe Perry. i only have him there for influencial purposes
because i lived 3 blocks from Aerosmith's Studio throughout my entire childhood.

5 Greatest in my book:

1) John Petrucci/Dream Theater. That guy's baum!
2) Slash/G'n'R.
3) Angus Young/AC/DC.
4) Pete Townshend/The Who
5) Carlos Santana

Look up Dream Theater!!!!!! You won't think the same way about music ever again!!!!!!
