Re: What's Are Your Top Ten Guitarists?

In no particular order after the first three:

1. Jimi Hendrix - The first and the best; Voodoo Chile is a magical track
2. Tony TS McPhee - Released at least ten successive albums with The Groundhogs that are all great
3. Robin Trower - His first four solo (post-Procol/Jude) albums with James Dewar have stood the test of time
4. George Kooymans - Formed a brief dual-guitar partnership with Rinus Gerritsen that took Golden Earring off the planet
5. Tony Iommi - Left-hander with clean precise sound and there is no-one heavier
6. Tony Bourge - With Burke Shelley, made Budgie as heavy as Black Sabbath
7. John McLaughlin - Fantastically fast without being a shredder
8. Ronnie Montrose - His playing was an exercise in restraint and finesse
9. Pat Travers - His playing in the seventies was both unorthodox and sparkling
10. Michael Schenker - Has a lightness of touch, like Blackmore and Montrose

On another day, I might write a different list.

Re: What's Are Your Top Ten Guitarists?

Not necessarily in order, and subject to change without notice:
Jeff Beck
Rory Gallagher
Duane Allman/Dickey Betts (counts as one)
Wes Montgomery
Doc Watson
Richard Thompson
Pete Townshend
Eric Clapton
Tom Verlaine/Richard Lloyd (counts as one)
Jerry Garcia (acoustic only)

I know they're not all "Classic Rock", so sue me.
Some people say tube sound is a smoky nightclub with a hot chick in a red dress, itís a warm swimming pool in summer, glowing green against the purple twilight, itís a . . . well, hell, you canít really explain tube sound.
