    Mainly cos most people said "I think" or "for me" before they said anything else...

    Just seemed like when you were saying "All the guitarists mentioned in this thread" that you didn't really rate anyone elses opinion. Mis-read no doubt.

    And you don't like missing a chance to make a snide comment on one of my posts. It is not that I don't rate other peoples opinions, I just don't agree with them.
    I've just looked back over this entire thread and not one post started with the words "I think" or "for me". Your opening line is therefore a bit specious, is it not?
    In the image of God? You must be joking!

    I think you get the point now. I wasn't having a go at you. As I clearly stated in my last post.... it was probably mis-read. You can check if you want.

    Albert King is a big favourite of mine so cool with his flying V blasting out the blues, Its pretty clear his influence on stevie ray, You can feel stevies admiration & respect for the big guy when they play blues at sunrise together, Albert recorded it originally with hendrix & Janis Joplin, Im always stunned by this track live on the blues at sunrise album

    Stumbled across Bill Wyman's Blues Odyssey on Artsworld (Sky) channel the other evening. Fantastic stuff to listen to; Albert Lee was in there but best of all the amazing Buddy Guy. Prompted me to go dig out the only Buddy Guy album I have; "Damn Right I Got The Blues".

    Anyone heard "Hooker'n'Heat"? Highly recommended.

    Alex Lifeson for all round performance and Joe Satriani for all the 'kerrang' and 'widdly-widdly' stuff!

    Default Hey Chobbers

    Somewhere in here we were talking about Roy Buchanan....... found a whole bunch of videos on YouTube. Here's Hey Joe; the rest are linked to.

    Apologies if you already know about them.

    Don't suppose the absolutely stunning female member of the audience that the cameraman clearly fancies (2 mins 33 secs in, to 2 mins 40) lives locally?

    <sigh> thought not.

    Got to agree on Jeff Beck ........consistently innovative.

    PS I shook hands with Tristan Seume to check that he had a normal fretting hand and didnt have six fingers.

    Well you didn't say wether they had to be alive or not? So for me it would be

    Django Reinhardt (not living)

    then

    Carlos Santana (living)

    Living or not living Django is always top for me!

    Here is a video of Django with of course his partner in crime Stephan Grapelli on bass fiddle! with their other musicians collectively known as The Hot Club De France! You have to listen on through the video to hear Django's solo work, and remember all the fancy runs and licks you hear, he only used two fingers on his left hand when playing, Most of the so called greats in this thread need the whole lot

    For pure "feel" try Paul Kossoff ( Free ) for outstanding all round technique Steve Howe ( Yes ) and for "fusion" Robert Fripp ( King Crimson ) and John Mclaughlin ( Mahivishna Orchestra ) ( All British )

    Technically, Mclaughlin was out there on his own as regards UK guitarists.

    My preferance is for Kossoff.

    Tommy Boiln for me, just have to stick on some live stuff from his Energy band to remember he was the ultimate (and only 20-21 at the time). His heroin riddled Purple days were a shadow of his former glory.
