Yngwei Malmsteen
Nuno Bettencort

Joe Satriani
Jason Becker
Marty Friedman

Alex Skolnick

Jeez, too many to list!
Saw Joe Bonamassa at the Fox Theater downtown Detroit this past November.
What a great player he is! This was my first show. Looking forward to seeing him
again when things are better. Five of us went, a Nephew, one of my four Brother in Laws
and both my sons so there were a couple of generations. All of us left impressed!
Smokin Joe is my go to right now. Although, Guthrie Govan is also quite good.
Still enjoying Eric Johnson too.
Cheers,
Jeff

Wow just too many ill go with 10

and if i posted  again  5 or 6 might change

1-Rory Gallagher  he'll never leave my lists

the rest no particular order

2-Steve Hackett

3-Peter Frampton   so so underated  i guess when you became the biggest pop star in the world for 15 minutes your playing goes un noticed

4-Jeff Beck
5-Daune Allman
6-Derek Trucks
7-Mick Ronson

8-Jimi Hendrix or any list comes crashing down from public pressure

9-Alvin Lee     ...... Speed anyone

10-Alan Holdsworth

Bonus      and left us too young  go check out Chicago 25 or 6 to 4 from Tanglewood and marvel at the man who steals the show   Terry Kath

I have to agree that these subjective lists always seem to leave Jazz and Classical behind as did mine

and Yes to Glenn Campbell OMG he was amazing....

  • To whom more was given more will be required.
    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

An unknow guitarist today are Jan Akkerman, I have see his substitute on Focus Jan Dumée live in 2003 and he was also impressive, Dumée worked as a bank security guard for lack of a band to play.

I would most certainly agree
I too was lucky enough to see Jan perform with Focus....
