Joe Satriani. Here's the Satch in action, I used his tune 'The Extremist' for my latest vid. Now that's some geeetar playin right there.

If you can concentrate on the music with a big 25lb RC truck jumping around on the screen that is. By the way, that's Joe Satriani playing the harmonica too. [X(]

Beck, Malmsteen, Slow Hand, Hendrix, Satriani, DiMeola, Van Halen, Howe, Morse, and the great Stevie Ray Vaughan.

All equals, if you ask me. But, to each her own

This is an easy one. Without this guy, the guitar might NEVER have become a popular instrument. Everyone that enjoys any kind of guitar music can thank Andres Segovia for bringing the instrument into pop culture. If I remember my music history correctly, the guitar was the favorite instrument of the aristocratic society, up until the pianoforte was developed around 1700. Then, it became the instrument of choice. It was also about this time that Gypsy clans took up the guitar, which led to its status as a lower class instrument. Few pieces of good music exist for the guitar from around the early 1700's until Segovia took up the instrument.

Of the ones you listed, Hendrix wind hands down. Self taught, on a $10 right handed guitar he learned to play left handed without restringing. Nobody then, or now, could get the sounds from a Strat that he could. Crank up Electric Ladyland sometime.

Others that deserve mention:

Jimmy Page (Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin)
Jeff Beck
Carlos Santana
Robert Fripp (King Crimson)

satriani, jimmy and slash in my eyes are the greats, with Alex Lifeson not too far off. also Santana is also very good.

HI READERS,
LIKE I SAID,
THESE ARE THE MAIN 4.
EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD KNOWS THESE GUITAR PLAYERS.
SO PLEASE DO NOT TALK ABOUT OTHERS.
JUST SELECT OUT OF THE GIVEN CHOICES.
SLASH, BRIAN MAY, ERIC CLAPTON AND JIMMY HENDRIX.
THANKS!
JOHN!

Its not fake. It doesn't even look fake. Nobody could mime that well to background music unless they actually could play it, in which case, what would be the point in miming? The people on youtube saying it's fake are just haters until they prove it.

YES IT IS FAKE!
It most definately is not fake. Fernando Miyata is a relatively well known guitarist from Brazil. John Petrucci called him one of the greatest guitarists he's ever seen. Seems guys like that are a dime a dozen though. With 6 + billion people on the planet, its not hard to believe there are 1000 amazing guitarists out there. And there are... Back in the days of the original MP3.com, unsigned artists from all over the world would post their music to be downloaded for free. There were SO many amazing guitarists - I still have MP3's from people like Marc Pattison (sold over 100,000 records off of MP3.com yet never got a record deal) Howard Hart, Jason Stewart... So many.

[link=http://jasonstewart.net/frenzy.mp3]Frenzy[/link] Jason Stewart

[link=http://www.marcpattison.com/mp3/vortex.html]Vortex[/link] Marc Pattison

I could post many, many more. Lots of talent out there people!

edit: just one more from Fernando: [link=http://video.google.com/videosearch?um=1&tab=wv&hl=en&q=Fernando%20Miyata#]Eruption[/link] Best non EVH version I've ever heard!

For Petrucci to acknowledge another guitarist's talent is quite an honor. The man himself is brilliant with the instrument. I should have added him to my list upthread.
