Three of them? You set the bar way too high for me. I don't recognize a single one. Is that a failure on my part, or theirs?

My favorite guitarists are Hendrix and Santana, pure magic. And everyone has heard of both of them, even when they were going artists. Many other, so called guitarists, should pawn their instruments.

Post a link to a song and enlighten us.

Lemme show you how it's done.

Look at the picture of his fret hand. At about 19 he was badly burnt in a fire and has little use of 2 fingers on his left hand.


Not guitar, but ukelele. Jake Shimabukuro.

Lets add a Gospel/Blues singer/guitarist from the 1930's onwards. An inspiration for people like Clapton.

Wouldn't call it a failure on anyone's part. All of these artists are relatively new, and some of them downright obscure.

Here's a breakdown on them:
Mike Oldfield - British composer and multiinstrumentalist, best known for his debut "Tubular Bells"

Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy - Lead guitarist and singer/guitarist of Alter Bridge. Their single "Blackbird" shows their work quite well.

Kanami Tōno - Lead guitarist of japanese Band BAND-MAID. Reference: ONSET

Maximum the Ryo-kun - Lead guitarist of japanese band MAXIMUM THE HORMONE. (Look these up at your own risk)

Misha Mansoor - Lead guitar for Periphery

David Maxim Micic - Lead guitarist for Destiny Potato

I fluked this test, probably because I'm an old curmudgeon who is unaware of the newer musicians.

Sometimes the best are ignored because they are not photogenic and therefore marketable.

Sometimes the best, particularly women, are not fully appreciated because they are photogenic.

The best are usually at there best during the twilight of their careers when they are playing primarily for their own enjoyment and to savor the companionship of their fellow musicians rather than to fill an arena.

Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart.

Probably the best is Glenn Cambell.

I'm a Heart fanatic. There's something about a woman wielding a guitar.

True. Plus the genre, and the strength of the song itself, song choice, has a lot to say about it. For instance, on American Idol and similar shows, a bad song choice can kill a great set of pipes.

Also, to be fair, many of the greats like Hendrix were pioneers showcasing pioneering equipment like the wah wah pedal. That crying sound is awesome. Hendrix took it to a new level and used it with wreckless abandon.

Let's not forget our female shredders.

And a movie with a great guitar battle as the carrot.

There are a couple of videos on You Tube where she trades licks with Steve Vai, and another of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and her, or her and Richie Sambora, and another with her and Carlos Santana. She's also performed (back when) with Michael Jackson, and also with Alice Cooper.
Check her out, I think you'll be impressed.

Voodoo Child Orianthi.

Thanks for correcting our oversight, Mycall4me.

There are so many, and I don't discount the mainstream ones either as they have to be good to be so popular.
Not in any order, but all good for me are.
Clapton, Knoffler, Slash, Yngwie Malmsteen, Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend, Brian May, Van Halen, Springsteen, Santana, lots more?
