a third vote for Mustaine.
He's also been placed as the #1 guitarist more than a couple times by authorities of the genre and we know he didn't get that nod because he's a nice guy.

As far as "best guitarist", to talk about the Bucketheads and Malmsteins of the world doesn't make sense. Playing solo and scaling the fuck out of the strings is the equivalent of jerking off on the guitar. It's not very musical and causes massive ear fatigue. Those guys are big fails--otherwise they'd actually be in a band and be making actual music instead of jerking off on a guitar and pushing their rep nonstop. You have to be pretty casual to upvote those clowns.

>>704930357
Gilmour does not even belong in the conversation. He is a mediocre guitarist at best. Page is overrated and only above average. Stevie Ray Vaughn is certainly top ten.

Only other legit top tens itt:
Dimebag
Mustaine
Hendrix

Not yet mentioned but top 10: Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, B.B. King, Randy Rhoads

FYI, Gilmour has admitted numerous times that he is "just an average guitarist", to his credit by the way. The music he makes is some of the very best, no question about that, but as a "guitarist" he is just ok. There is not even a single Floyd tune that shows off anything but slow strumming with a pissload of effects anyway. He literally cannot play with serious guitarists. He'd look like a chimp next to them.

Get a clue fagtard. You know nothing.

Again, having said that, I love Gilmour for what he does--making great music--though Waters was the real talent.

NOT by the fact he can build a run of the mill house blindfolded..

--An actual musicians board thread
harmonycentral.com/forum/forum/Off-Topic/acapella-27/654533-

bb king is a guitar god to all of the top guitarists
he invented the sophisticated solo with an electric guitar
there literally weren't guitar solos before bb king
fucking invented 4 different types of guitars
gibson literally launched a guitar series called the B.B. King Lucille model (he named his guitar "Lucille")
invented shimmering vibrato technique
invented fluid string bending
known as "the king of blues"
played across genres, blues, rhythm and blues, rock
prolific writer
did 342 shows over his career, spanning more than 70 years as a performer

That is not analogous at all. Oh, and by the way, a "bricklayer" doesn't "build a fucking good house". He's a dumb bricklayer. Nothing else. He picks up a brick, butters it, and puts it down. All the workers "build" the house. This thread is about "guitarists", not "music", not "bands". You are a fucking retard who can't argue, can't logic, and keeps changing the subject and moving the target every time he is proven wrong. You've done this in these threads each and every time and everyone thinks you are a fucking imbecile.

All you are doing at this point is proving you are brit, because literally no one is this fucking dumb . . . except brits.

Just so you know, I'm in my late 50's and am a session musician who has played with some of the very best, including several ax wielders in this thread. If you are in the industry and I mentioned my name, I'm sure you'd know it.

You could name your dick Godzilla but it would still be the same size, dummy. Bob Dylan is a prolific writer, but nobody makes claims about him being a king. Oh and two words. Hubert Sumlin. Also, not sure on this but you might wanna look into the difference between a 'lead' and a 'solo', Einstein.

>>704939547
I'm not that anon, but I remember when Gilmour was interviewed and made those comments and he went to great lengths to explain why he considered himself a mediocre guitarist. He explained that the music he plays is not musically complex but rather "simple" from an instrumental standpoint. He also said he had tried playing other types of music and simply cannot. By the way, Gilmour started out as a blues soloist and his idol, according to him and whom he tried to emulate, was none other than B.B. King.

If you are going by that, like the other anons have said, you'd have to go with B.B. King. He's written and recorded a fuckload of studio albums and had probably over 50 of those singles that have charted, including a bunch of number 1's.

sorta off topic.

Ive owned this guitar for about 8 years now. My father bought it off the owner of a rock club which had suffered fire damage and wasn't insured. The guitar was in a glass display case and thats all i know about it. There is no brand names on anything except the pick up which is a Bill Lawrence. Other than that i can't identify anything else on it.

this thread depends how you rate them. if you are talking classically skilled virtuosos who can find Dsus9 with a F bass in 12 positions... then they arent really making memorable music while Gilmour and Hendrix and Clapton wrote hooks that will last for hundreds of years.

Buckethead? He is just a high speed noise generator. Listen to one side of one of his albums and you have the whole catalog covered.

Lots of stuff I disagree with here, like the people ragging on Buckethead. A lot of what he puts out may be near impossible to enjoy musically, yeah, but he's shown that he can be soulful at times too (and no, I'm not referring to just Soothsayer). Discounting such technically proficient players who have a deep understanding of music theory is ridiculous. While that alone doesn't make them gods of the instrument, it shows a dedication and even passion for music that honestly most of today's "artists" are completely lacking. Guys like Vai, satch and Malmsteen, as well as Paul Gilbert, Shawn Lane and yes, Buckethead, and so many more. They are fantastic players who do what they do because they love it. But Meh, haters gonna hate.

Also, surprised no one mentioned Eric Johnson yet. Not a great songwriter, really, but as an instrumental player his tone and musicianship are fantastic.
