Slash is awesome

Of these guys, SRV. He was just like Hendrix in many ways but with insane precision and clarity.

No Eddie Van Halen or Brian May? for shame

and a little bit of that, also Mark Knopfler and Mr. B.B. King are missing from this list IMO

Ah SRV is in the lead. Smart people on this website

Hendrix was badass, don't get me wrong, but he is overrated.

SRV owns this list.

Joe Bonamassa, Albert King, Freddie King, Jimmy Paige, Tom Morello.

JOHNNY RAMONE (for his apocalyptic down strum speed)

Jimi Hendrix is the best by far from the poll. Eric Clapton is good and SRV and Slash are mediocre guitarists.

Of this poll SRV.

I'll add Dimebag and John 5 to the list of shouldas.

Where is Jimmy Page, Chuck Berry, Brian May, Keith Richards, and Angus Young?

anyway out of the ones you listed I would say Jimi Hendrix, he wasn't an amazing singer but his guitar work is amazing.

How about Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Glenn Campbell and Jerry Reed?

#16 Posted by turoksonofstone (13199 posts) - - Show Bio

Hendrix.

#17 Posted by DoomDoomDoom (4235 posts) - - Show Bio

Bull...where is Joe Pass?

#18 Posted by GraniteSoldier (7528 posts) - - Show Bio

No Randy Rhodes? Eddie Van Halen? Jimmy Page? It's hard to pick a "best".

I will take Slash...

#22 Edited by QueenCorp15 (1032 posts) - - Show Bio

Slash isnt even top 20

#23 Posted by spinningbirdcake (1430 posts) - - Show Bio

Of these guys Hendrix. But Gilmour can do with 3 or 4 notes what they do with 20.

#24 Posted by Jayc1324 (11437 posts) - - Show Bio

Slash is my favorite next to randy Rhodes so I voted slash but the best I've ever heard was hendrix

Lil Wayne... I can't even type that with a straight face.

Honestly, I'd say Hendrix, but I wouldn't know.

Interesting opinion. I don't think Slash is revolutionary but Stevie Ray Vaughn mediocre? That's a hard one to wrap my head around.

#30 Posted by Gibson95 (11 posts) - - Show Bio

Of these four SRV is the best, followed by Hendrix.

#31 Posted by Strider92 (16253 posts) - - Show Bio

Clapton and Knopfler are my favorites!
