Heck, they don't even list the best guitarist from the Yardbirds . . .

Oh, man, the Yards' had so many!! 8)

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Okay....I voted....but I wanted to vote for all the guitarist at once.

Only 50 guitarist Nick!?! :D

(Grumble, Grumble) where's Marty Friedman, Dave Mustaine, Jeff Beck, Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, B.B. King, Buckethead, Frank Zappa....

Sorry. He's not on the list.

Charlie Byrd was the greatest ever

I voted Kurt Cobain. Since I don't care for complexity I just looked at the 'do I like it' factor. And because I like them all a lot I voted for Cobain. Kinda like a grand 'it doesn't need to be complex to be just as cool' statement.

As for technically best: no clue. How to compare Steve Vai with Django Reinhardt?

Gotta agree with KP, the best Yardbird axeman (in IMNSHO) is not listed, and he actually happens to be my all around fave. But if a person doesn't know who that is, well it doesn't really matter now does it?

(Yes, greybeard, I'm sure you know -- even if you don't agree.)

There's a poster of Slash up on my study wall, but he's not as good as Brian May, and Brian May's not as good as Alex Lifeson who seems to be missing for some unexplained reason, and geez there wasn't even Mr John Technical Williams or anyone from the classical side, and there was nobody from the C&W stable, no Nick Drake, Joe Strummer or Nile Rogers, and no Ritchie Blackmore....

I'm with Nick - the choices on the list are simply well known guitarists and every one of us can come up with a list of who should have been there.

Best,

Thanks for that, Alan. I am also a Lifeson disciple. Not that I necessarily think that others should consider him "the best"; I just love his work. So many sounds and textures... and just the ideas he has and his phrasing.

Truly amazing to me. :)
