Best guitarist is an everlasting debate. My pick is Mark Tremonti (Creed, Alterbridge). But I still like John Petrucci(Dream Theater). Tom Morello(Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave) though, get my props for originality in effect use. Skill though is a tough call all three of these guys have it mad, and there are others who also have mad skill as well. So its up to personal opinion.

In order to determine who the best guitarist is, I think they should all do a face off like they do in the streets with break-dancing and rap/hip-hop. One goes the other tries to top it. Then we shall see who is the best. And if it gets dabatable because of effect usage, you just take it straight up clean, no effects no nothing.

Overall my vote is for Vai. Since he has conquered all aspects of the instrument combining artistry and technique.

The most technically proficient would probably be Rusty cooley. You may not have heard of him yet but check him out. http://www.myspace.com/rustycooley

I agree with many on this topic that it is hard to pick out one single guitarist overall. I look at the question and think who was or is the best guitar pioneer of a genre. But to answer the question as best as I can I'll give my top five favorite. B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, Brad Paisley, The Edge (U2), and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam).

I must say that random shredding does not impress me. If it's a true musical composition and it tells a story, I will listen. A great example of this is Joe Satch. His music is made for very skilled players, yet it tells a story.

Everybodies definition of what random shredding is, is different. Quite frankly I cant say ive ever heard someone shred randomly and make it anywhere. On the other end of the scale I cant stand stagnant guitarist that can barely navagate around the fretboard but think their sheik because of it and are content to stay at a lesser level of knowledge. I think Bach would have been labeled a mindless shredder had he been a guitar player living these days. Listen to the goldberg variations.

How in the world do you pick Tremonti over Petrucci?! That's ludicris.

Oh, and the answer is still Wes Montgomery.

Well, I just like him better, I still love Pertucci as a guitarist the first time i heard him, it was on a video in an department store and i just stood there jaw down gaping at him. I have mad respect for Petrucci, but i just like Tremonti better. I dont know why, prolly cuz of the music, and AlterBridge, but i love listening to both of them. So really its just my opinion of Tremonti over Pertrucci but they are like my top two tho.

Ok I have this discussion alot with some of my friends at skool about who is the better guitarist, and he brought up a point: What style of music or whether we are talking electric guitar or classical guitar. Another Point to bring up, is what are we basing it on? SKill? Originality? other_____?

Satch is good, and has a nitch market, but I wouldn't concider him one of the best all time. He is one of the best right now however. Vai would probably get my vote, but I have heard some finger pickers on acustics that are simply sick. Some jazz players are insane also.

But good techinque isn't every things. Just ask a average basketball fan who Jeff Hornecek or Chris Mullins were. They had perhaps the best techinque in the game for their era, but were only average players.

For every guy who's made it, there are dozens who were just as good, but never got the right song or opportunity, or he was in the studio recording for some famous front man or woman. A classic example of a great studio guy would be Larry Carlton or Jeff Skunk Baxter. Just my $.02.
Good post man!! One of my favorites is Dan Huff---. Everyone here has heard this guy play on a song by somebody but most don't have a clue who he is. The best player of um all ? I vote it's some unknown first call session player we have heard play a thousand times but is never named in the credits .
