Top 5 most admired guitarists - let's see your choices


Recommended Posts

I'm not necessarily asking who you think the most technically proficient guitarists are, but taking into consideration any and all factors that cause you to like a certain player. Not limited to only rock guitarists of course.


Based on a combination of technical ability, songwriting, influence and style, my list is:


Jimmy Page

Dimebag Darrell Abbott

Tony Iommi

Keith Richards

Eric Clapton(early years)




...ya, some very obvious ones there, I know.

Narrowing it down to five is pretty tough. As I was looking at my list I realized I had ALMOST picked one each from different types of music, so I rearranged my list to reflect that.


Duane Allman - electric blues

Bucky Pizzarelli - jazz

Chet Atkins - country

Tommy Emmanuel - acoustic folk

Steve Howe - rock & roll
