Rock:

1) Joe Perry

2) Jeff Beck

3) Jimmy Page

4) Keith Richards

5) Jimi Hendrix

 

Blues:

1) Robert Johnson

2) Eric Sardinas

3) Mississippi Fred McDowell

In no particular order....

 

John McLaughlin

Bob Brozman

Leo Kottke

Joe Pass

Chet Atkins

Bill Frisell

 

Oh that's seven? Well maybe Leo can go into 12s and JM into 9s - being the average of 6 and 12.

Brian May

Robert Fripp

Gary Moore

Adrian Smith/Dave Murray (I will place them both as one guitarist as I like how they work as a team)

Keith Richards

 

 

 

Billy Gibons would be on the list if it was 8 guitarists list... the other two? Well, Kiko Loureiro and Rafael Bittencourt from Angra... never saw two motherf-ckers play as fast and sounding good at the same time...

If it was 8, I'd have to add Albert Lee, Mike Bloomfield, and Brian Setzer to my previous list
