Your favorite guitarist ever!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey! Whaddyaknow?

Zombie Thread Day!

 

I'm going to have to check back to see if I answered this thread seven years ago when it was freshly minted!

 

Pip.

 

EDIT: Nope. I suppose it's about time!

 

Four from me as, today, I don't mind cheating on this topic.

Three different classifications so it's not a cheat, really, apart from the last two.

 

Andres Segovia, Django Reinhardt and Peter Green / Paul Kossoff.

 

Interesting to see that of all those who posted in 2009 only five are still actively posting nowadays...

For me, it's still Randy Rhoads and Gary Moore (as I have posted numerous times before). Also, Donald Roeser deserved the bronze medal recently.

 

Bence.

No slight to all the guitar players out there that I really admire (Adrian Belew, Rick Derringer, Tommy Emmanuel, etc) but my favorite ever is New Zealand's Neil Finn.

 

Neil's voice and songwriting really speak to me, and his guitar playing is versatile, melodic, unusual, and always interesting.

Great choice, Sparky!

He has written a huge amount of very great songs.

In all honesty I think there really is something of the Lennon/McCartney magic in his best stuff.

 

In fact I'm off to put one of his albums on the Tower of Power right now!

 

Thanks for the inspiration!

Varies almost by day, Malcolm Young, Ron Asheton, J.Mascis, Rory Gallagher or Paul Kossoff...all right up there.

 

But overall I'd say Meg White.

<---- his signature instrument

 

YES! Nice to see another Tal fan on the forum. He doesn't get mentioned too often here. Great choice and absolutely love your Gibson TF.

I already listed 3 (of many) of my "favorites." But, it's really difficult to name only one,

as there are so many great players, in every genre. So, why limit yourself to any ONE? Enjoy

them All, I say.

Bill Nelson.

 

Been making great music for 50 years.

I forgot about Bill, I think He's vastly a underrated guitar player!

 

 

Ian

Like everyone here I could name loads, but in keeping with the thread, I'd have to say:

 

Brian Setzer

 

He really was the first guitar hero I had and is still a great player. I know he uses those wierd Gretsch things, but he's still good!
