You HAVE to have Clapton on there! AND B B King & Lucile! AND Les Paul.....Chuck Berry!

Or else why have the list at all??

Honerable mention to Stevie Windwood.

The biggest problem is Buckethead is left off this video.

In terms of more modern guitarists, John Frusciante is my favorite.

Here's one that not many know of, unfortunately...

Alan Holdsworth

...and of course you have the classics

Hendrix
Vaughan
Clapton
Santana

not a ton of name recognition and arguably not on any "best of all time" short lists but this guy has one of the most odd and unique styles i've ever heard:

[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdOEIIaJ790[/media]

he's best known for having played on megadeth's "peace sells...but who's buying?" album. smooth vibrato and extremely fluid legato technique.

I'm as big of a jimi fan as you'll ever find and I think that Stevie ray Vaughn is better. So yeah it is close.

And it's Joe Satriani.

oh yeah joe satriani...he does nice riffs.


umm stevie is nice but he admits that he is not better than jimi lol jimi was his idol so of course he would never anything bad about him...

i feel like stevie copied jimi style.....i know he is great but its just feel like he is someone covering another guys style when i listen to him. almost like a good karaoke singer

some say jimi and stevie got their style from albert king. so its just all an opinion man.

The point was that the term "not even close" is being used wrong.

the difference between jimi and stevie is that jimi could play a wider range of "noises" on guitar. They both have amazing tones, tons of feel, and tons of soul. Jimi just has a wider landscape then stevie did. But i couldn't ever say who was better.
