    Some good old school Guitar.

    Well, I could not find the old best guitar players of all time thread, I looked back 30 pages and gave up so I'll start another one, not that Johnny was near the best, but I liked him and I found this and I thought this was good.

    Talking

    It depends upon the style of playing you like. Eric Clapton cannot shred like Steve Vai but Steve Vai cannot get the soul out of one note the way Carlos Santanna can. Nobody surgically selects each note and plays it more precisely than David Gilmour. Nobody had bigger balls playing blues than Stevie Ray. Jimi attacked the song but technically was very sloppy.

    One key for me is watching them play: most young guns either cavort on stage like they're having seizures to make up for their lack of talent or they just crank up the distortion w/ overdrive and pound your senses numb. Compare that to the more stolid Clapton, Santanna, Gimour, Beck types who rarely even look at the finger board. Carlos shows a lot of facial emotion but he doesn't have to move like Elvis to impress anyone.

    For pure listening pleasure, Gilmour can remove the stress of the day and totally relax me. Clapton is playing strong now but unfortunately, he is not as creative sober and he was stoned. BTW, get his new book.

    The guy who has the talent that no one ever hears has to be Jeff Beck. Watch him on Clapton's 2007 Crossroads Concert. He has that girl from South Africa playing some of the best bass you'll ever enjoy, too. Best treat on that gig, though was Steve Winwood playing guitar, esp. Mr. Fantasy. Beautiful!

    To each his own.

    Larry Lalonde is an incredible player that is under the radar.
    Buckethead is incredibly talented as well, but man, what a nut!
