Great guitarists...

Post by wontgetfooledagain on Wed Apr 22, 2009 5:02 pm

Well.. this thread is aimed at other guitar geeks like me. Smile

I have links to a few of my favorite guitarists... at their best.

The first one is Joe Satriani... he has complete control over his guitar... and this is a beautiful song...

The next one is Eric Johnson... love his style. The song doesn't really kick in until about 5 or 6 minutes into the video.... but it's worth the wait. He's amazing.

And then comes Stevie Ray Vaughan. This man is an inspiration for me.. not just because he is a virtuoso on the guitar.. but also the fact that he defeated his demons..(alcohol and drug abuse...)... but sadly, died much too young (only 36) in a helicopter crash.

And finally.. slow hand... or Sir Eric Clapton. He is the reason I play Fender Stratocasters.... he is God... Wink

SRV is definitely up there in my book. Also Les Paul is like my hero. I watched the LEs Paul Story and I was just in awe of his vision as a designer and ability as a musician.

EVH is probably the best ever for rock. I know I know but some of the free lance stuff he did was just unreal. I play Eruption (badly) every day just to get a grip on harmonic minors and tapping.

But alas my all time favorite guitar player is David Gilmour. Yeah hes a drug addict, but his stuff is dead on every time. I have always thought he was the best, but recently someone turned me on to Shine On You Crazy Diamond acoustic. That was fantastic.

I think technically either Malmstein or Satriani are 10's with Eric johnson being a 9.9.

David Gilmour is also another favorite of mine! The man knows how to construct a guitar solo. Very expressive.... yep... another guitar great for sure.

Even if you know next to nothing about guitars (like me), you get hypnotized by Satriani, he is in a class of his own.
