Jimi Hendrix, baby believe it, sent the world on fire
Joe Satriani- He makes his guitar come alive and can create sounds from it like no one has ever heard before! He is the guitar players guitar player!
Doug Gillard of Guided By Voices. He plays a Les Paul Black Beauty. Check out Zeppelin Over China. Best album of 2019.
Old slow hand. Mr. Eric Clapton.
Stevie Ray Vaughn (RIP) is the best I’ve ever seen. Pete Townsend would be my runner up.
Of the newer, younger breed, Samantha Fish. Wish she would make a stop in the Cap Region
So many styles, so many favorites… but someone I return to time and time again for his amazing range is Adrian Belew. From acoustic simplicity to non-guitar-like effects and pedals to wall-of-sound crunch, he can do it all !!
So many guitarists so many styles but overall my favorite is Bucky Pizzarelli. If you mean rock guitar Brian May
Dwezzil Zappa with a name like that what else was he gonna do but shut up and play his guitar
favorite guitar player is really hard…is it Robert Johnson…he sounds like two players at once…Eric Clapton…emotion and power…Robert Fripp…genius…
Jimmy herring. Fire.
Thanks for the chance to win!
Jimmy Page hands down!!! Hook a brother up!
My Top 7:
It’s always difficult to get over your first loves – still Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix as my top faves of all time – Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eddie Van Halen impressed me the most, best live – Kenny Burrell and Les Paul for mid-jazz flavors – Sonny Sharrock forever my Guitar spirit totemic fire wilder.
Me, of course. Jimi would be my runner-up when he was still alive.

Best guitar player I ever saw perform is Jimi Hendrix. He had to wait to play until Monday morning but it was worth it! Yes I’m talking the real Woodstock not the fake ones!

Kiki is still my favorite❤️
