I havent really listened to anyother guitar gods, so my choice is Bias...
Amazing guitar player but IMO the best is Joe Satriani. He has taught so many of the best and/or well know players in the world.

Right now at this time, I would have no opinion whatsoever, but in history noone comes close to jimmi hendrix

cmon guys, jimi... you must be kidding

he was very good at taking LSD, but when it comes to play 3 melody lines at the same time he certainly wasnt king

I think it really depends on what "best" means. There's just too many styles of playing a guitar that define a good guitarist. I mean, for blues, B.B. King is definetely one of the best. But can you picture B.B. King and Lucille playing a Megadeth solo? Probably not. So it really depends on what "best" means...


On a side note this is something I recorded last year:

masterazn's awesome solo thing

I dont like those 20 minute solos, something simple and sweet like the one in American Idiot pwn them anyday.

Oh and guitar player?

While there are some amazing Jazz guitarists, I like John Mclaughlin and Al DiMiola for example, I still think Satriani is the best.

Stevie Ray Vaughan without a doubt.

One of my personal favorite guitarists within a band is Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Paige.
