    Jeff Healeys playing is a major achievement to say the least, Amazing to see him play, His version of My guitar gently weeps is brilliant

    mmmm...like Jeff Healey, and with him being a Canuck, I probably SHOULD vote for him, BUT

    David Gilmour - most underrated guitarist

    Jeff Beck - jest because I like him...

    Eric Clapton - cuz he can make me cry

    Yngie Malmsteen plays scales faster than anyone I've ever heard, but speed's not as important as soul...and unfortunately he doesn't seem to have much.

    And yes, Sutherland and son rate up there too!

    John Mclaughlin is right up there.

    and for the Highschool banter vote I always felf David Gilmour knows how to hit the right note at the right time.

    i have so many favourites lol. if i had to pick....hmmm
    Eric clapton is definitley one of the best for me. his music holds alot of meaning to me on a personal level and he is despite what some people think still a pretty good guitarist with alot of feeling in his playing. Stevie Ray Vaughan is also one of my favourites as far as blues goes. he was amazing. also ihave been interested by some local musicians over the years. we do have ALOT of talent up here. maybe more than what some people seem to think!!

    couldn't agree more

    I think the biggest impact & influence on me though has to be Jeff Beck, Wired & Blow By Blow in particular

    Could well be Brain May for me. Can never decided if it was his playin' or the sound he had.nice combination me thinks!

    And although he wasn't technically the best guitar player ever Robbie Robertson played with genuine feeling. its was much more noticable when u seen him live.

    All the guitarists mentioned in this thread, with a few exceptions, could be blown off the stage by Segovia, John Williams or Julian Bream. The exceptions being Les Paul and John Mclaughlin and perhaps Martin Taylor.

    But is not every post on this thread a matter of opinion? Some opionions are based on limited knowledge and experience and some are based on many years of experience and great knowledge. Never the less, each post is a matter of opinion and I fail to see why you should bother to state the obvious.
