Kurt Cobain?

Didn't he play the same 3 power chords in every song?

beat me to it...

yeah, he had some cool riffs he came up with, but lol at him being a good guitarist...

in fact, it probably ruined my guitar playing and stunted its growth because I learned all the Nirvana songs back in high school... It's a hard habit to break, wanting to bar E chord everything...

LOL at Cobain.

SRV
Eddie Van Halen
BB King
Clapton

I tend to migrate to the more soulful, bluesy types since that's the kind I play (badly).

Technical perfection: Eric Johnson.

Then again, I love the big hair stuff too. Lynch is great live, and Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme is pretty awesome too.

Check out Joe Bonamassa if you like the soulful, bluesy, skilled guys

Dimebag Darrell is up there pretty high for me. The solo in Floods, and pretty much anything and everything he ever did was awesome (it's just that solo in Floods is probably his best known solo).

Joe Satriani is a king.


Steve Vai, BB King, Zappa, etc.

That isn't an order, btw. Just listing random guitarists that I would put in the "elite" category.
