No way could I have done that, Rod: my bike has a puncture, my legs, ankles and heart won't let me and I'm likely to be very wobbly when the bike is fettled!
Thanks for your encouraging thoughts, though.  :y

Not seen that before either. Great stuff. I was always a fan of Gary moore through his various styles. I often kinda thought that jack Bruce was a bit of an arrogant shit, but this just all works so incredibly well regardless.

Gary Moore was, technically, the best guitarist Ive ever seen.

Always been a very big fan of Gary Moore and he is near the top of my favourite top 10 guitarists.

In alphabetical order:

Alvin Lee
BB King
Buddy Guy
Carlos Santana
Gary Moore
Jack Bruce
Jeff Beck
Jimmy Hendrix
Rory Gallagher
Stevie Ray Vaughan

I would be interested to know your top 10.

Top 10 guitar players ? That's a tough one. It's not just about technical ability it's about style and establishing an identity, and also those who have some lasting legacy. Also, at a gig the best guitar player is the one on stage right now.

Not in any order. I'm sure that this list would change every 5 minutes . . . . so many

Jimmy Page
Jimi Hendrix
Ritchie Blackmore
Marty Friedman
Jeff Beck
David Gilmour
Prince
Paul Gilbert
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Eddie Van Halen

Jack Bruce is a bass player, so he doesn't qualify.  ;)
My list could be different in 5 minutes time to some degree, but I will have a go at it. These will be the guitarists I  have most enjoyed listening to, rather than my opinion of who is the best.

1. Eric Clapton - God
2. Rory Gallagher - best live performer Ive ever seen, and a lovely genuine bloke
3. Jim Armstrong an almost unknown master of his instrument
4.Stevie Ray Vaughan - played every note as if his life depended on it
5. Gary Moore - incredible technique
6. George Harrison - not flash, just played the perfect note for every situation
7. Peter Green - amazing feel in his playing
8.Jimi Hendrix - the most creative guitarist ever
9. Freddie King. - without him there would be no Clapton
10. Jeff Beck - Hank Marvin on acid

Missed many out, including BB King, Ritchie Blackmore, Duane Allman, Robert Johnston but that's lists for you.

Many great players listed already but I'd add these too.

Larry Carlton
Johnny Winter
Mark Knopfler
Billy Gibbons
Ian Anderson ( Jethro Tull ) Acoustic.
Peter Green ( Fleetwood Mac and Splinter )
Keith Richards
Ry Cooder
Stephen Stills


Many more but these spring to mind.

How about Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen .. ok, there's a pattern to those ;D Once upon a time I could just about keep up with the slower bits of some of Satriani's music (these days I'd have no chance) but never put in the hours to actually get good.

Like many other things in my life ;D

What if, like me, you DO put in the hours and are still hopeless?  :(

No mention of Dave Gilmour yet, another one that can really make a guitar sing.
