How can you like hank Marvin and not love mark knopfler?
Props for knowing who djngo Reinhardt is tho.
My favorites would have to be the usual suspects: evh, slash, knopfler, Chet Atkins and jerry reed, Adrian smith, Emmanuel, Hendrix, Phil x, randy

I guess I like a lot of different things, but I would have to go EVH as my favorite and it gets blurry from there

Ooh almost forgot Eric johnson can’t forget EJ

Sorry to list everyone ever :slight_smile:

You guys all play?


#7

@Lobo420 Actually, all three of the people I mentioned ARE guitarists, but Robert MacKillip happens to be particularly well known for lute as well. @gkex I do play (and sometimes with bands) but my primary instrument is keys…


#8

I used to play the sampler and turntable and I did screamed vocals, but I don’t play guitar xD


#9

wow all these guitarists & no one mentions some of the best imo

Angus & Malcom young - Ac/Dc
Flea - Red hot Chilli Peppers
Peter Frampton
Paul Stanley - Kiss


#10

Frampton I can see, but Paul Stanley? Are you kidding? He’s not even the best guitarist in his own band. And isn’t flea a bassist?


#11

I included a bassist :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

Nothing against them or anything, but I’m not exactly ready to put Bach up here either.


#13

But I would, if I thought I could get away with it! Although that would be lute. :smiley: Sorry … speaking of which, yes, favourite guitarists. Robert MacKillop, Eduardo Fernandez (who is AMAZING; I was able to attend one of his concerts once), and Andrei Krylov.


#14

@122BCooper Thanks for reminding me of Reinhardt. I’ve been meaning to check out his album for awhile and I just did a day ago.

If classical counts, obligatory Andrs Segovia.


#16

@fiogan if you are including lute & Ukulele players we cant forget Tiny Tim or Garfunkle & Oats


#17
