buckethead

and when he plays with claypool... holy poo

bonamassa probably couldn't play quite like buckethead yet buckethead probably couldn't play quite like bonamassa.

joe has some of the best tone around for what he does. an arsenal of vintage guitars and boutique amps helps of course but he's got fantastic technique to go with it.

I have listened to all these guys, save Gary Clark, whom I will now check out, but JB seems to be able to cover the blues and incredible solos and acoustics, sort of the whole package. Guess I would give him the MVP so to speak. On to Gary Clark.....

Yeah, there's little sense trying to compare someone like Derek Trucks to Zakk Wylde or Robin Trower to John Lee Hooker. Each of the axe men mentioned in this thread are pretty damn good in their own right.

I'm not a big fan of Joe Satriani's solo stuff, but he's still an outstanding player. I personally think John Butcher Axis is really underrated and most people have never heard of the guy.

I watched Derek Trucks as a kid and, before he got his own band, play alongside Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule. And if you like Trucks, you might want to listen to his wife, who is also a pretty damn good blues guitarist- Susan Tedeschi.

here's some guitarists some of you purists/non-fans of heavier music may like

After high-school I registered to go to GIT(Guitar Institute of Technology) to play pretty much this exact style of progressive, fusion metal bc I loved Fates Warning and Dream Theater. My best-friend who was the only proficient guitar play I knew that could keep up skill wise decided to back out of moving to L.A. the day we were going to get our airplane tickets.

I had a little tear listening to this. Some techniques I thought I invented(lol) with two hand "Stanley Jordan"- to- metal now is the norm..nice stuff.

But in this thread are all good guitar guys of all styles..however GOAT is definitely not Johnny P of Dream Theater..he is technical and plays nice..but his style just has a soulless characteristic I cannot really describe sorta like Mike Portnoy is to drums. Just because you own a lot of toms does not make you a great drummer.

Anyone is naturally going to think guitarists of the genre they prefer are going to be better. While the metal guys have great chops and are plenty talented, I'd prefer the guy from the OP. He has more of a voice than the guys that rip off as many notes as they can. I feel like those kind of players are trying more to impress people than play music and it usually sounds very boring to me.
