FINALLY………A decenct list of great guitarists……Sick of seeing Brian May and Eddie Van Halen at the top of theses lists!!!! The Blues Musicians are the the masters but seem to get left off most lists because they are not very well known!!! Great list although bit concerned abour Duane Allmans position!!! Surely the greatest slide guitarist of all time??? Should be top ten…
I would have put Rory Gallagher and Mark knopfler a lot further up the list. Wnd what about Chet Atkins? None the less, it is a great list and must have taken a huge amount of time and effort to do it. Thanks.
Early proponents of the electric guitar on record include Alvino Rey (Phil Spitalney Orchestra), Les Paul (Fred Waring Orchestra), Danny Stewart (Andy Iona Orchestra), George Barnes (under many aliases), Lonnie Johnson, Floyd Smith, Big Bill Broonzy, T-Bone Walker, George Van Eps, Charlie Christian (Benny Goodman Orchestra), Tampa Red, Memphis Minnie, and Arthur Crudup.
One of the first solid-body guitars was invented by Les Paul. Gibson did not present their Gibson Les Paul guitar prototypes to the public, as they did not believe the solid-body style would catch on. Another early solid-body Spanish style guitar, resembling what would become Gibson’s Les Paul guitar a decade later, was developed in 1941 by O.W. Appleton, of Nogales, Arizona.[25] Appleton made contact with both Gibson and Fender but was unable to sell the idea behind his “App” guitar to either company.[26] In 1946, Merle Travis commissioned steel guitar builder Paul Bigsby to build him a solid-body Spanish-style electric.[27] Bigsby delivered the guitar in 1948. The first mass-produced solid-body guitar was Fender Esquire and Fender Broadcaster (later to become the Fender Telecaster), first made in 1948, five years after Les Paul made his prototype. The Gibson Les Paul appeared soon after to compete with the Broadcaster.[28] Another notable solid-body design is the Fender Stratocaster, which was introduced in 1954 and became extremely popular among musicians in the 1960s and 1970s for its wide tonal capabilities and more comfortable ergonomics than other models.
this is the worst list I have ever seen… 14. kirk hammett and 20. joe satriani oh my god he is kirks teacher in addition jimmy page is 13. lol he must be in top ten and jimi should be the best not fourth.

You should now know all the notes in between the “white” notes from your study of BC-152 • The Note Circle – Eventually, you should try and remember ALL the notes on the thickest two strings. You will use these time and time again, so they really need to be in your memory, not on the screen!
The 2nd basic beginner guitar chord you should learn is C, or C major. You don’t have to say “major” in the name of the chord. If you just say C chord it’s assumed that it’s a major chord. You only want to strum the top 5 strings (that means the highest sounding 5 strings, not their relationship to the floor) The X in the guitar chord chart means not to play that string, or to mute it.
Most seven-string guitars add a low B string below the low E. Both electric and classical guitars exist designed for this tuning. A high A string above the high E instead of the low B string is sometimes used. Another less common seven-string arrangement is a second G string situated beside the standard G string and tuned an octave higher, in the same manner as a twelve-stringed guitar (see below). Jazz guitarists using a seven-string include George Van Eps, Lenny Breau, Bucky Pizzarelli and his son John Pizzarelli.
Chords are massive. There are tons of songs that are based on a chord. In a lot of songs, usually, it only uses three chords in the entire song which is quiet amazing. Next thing we will be learning is a lot of songs that will be using some chords.
The bridge and tailpiece, while serving separate purposes, work closely together to affect playing style and tone. There are four basic types of bridge and tailpiece systems on electric guitars. Within these four types are many variants.
By the 1950’s, brands like Gibson and Fender were gaining notoriety thanks to the popularity of rock ‘n’ roll and its stars. Players like Dick Dale, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and Chet Atkins could all be found carving their own places in music history with the electric guitar, and by the early 60’s the instrument saw an extraordinary upsurge in popularity. Today, there are an endless amount of rock sub-genres, making no shortage of superbly crafted electric guitars from the world biggest brands, including Ibanez, Epiphone, and Danelectro, as well as Godin, Gretsch, Peavey and more. Whether you’re into black metal or folk rock, you can be sure that there’s an electric guitar that perfectly matches your own style and tastes, and it can easily be found right here, regardless of your skill level or budget.
3/4 guitars are fine for children under the age of 11, or as travel guitars, but if you want to learn properly, then buy a full size guitar at the start. I started on a full size classical guitar right back when I was knee high to a grasshopper; initially it’s hard, but your fingers adapt fast enough and you will soon develop flexibility and dexterity. For children under 11, a 3/4 guitar is an option, but even then I still feel that full-size is better. Check out all the amazing 6 year-old kids playing amazing stuff on the internet, 9 times out of 10 they are playing full-size instruments.

All the guys critisizing the list ranking please get your eyes checked by an eye-specialist. Mr. Klaus just noted 150 greatest guitarists, not rankwise, there might be some more. Brian how many of “your” Jazz guitarists can outplay Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Kark Hammet, Carlos Santana, Michael Angelo Batio??? There are many great jazz guitarists with amazing skill. But dear Brian your favourite jazz genre is much much much less popular than Rock. Take any guitar, amplifier, guitar-fx pedal manufacturer you will find them promoting their product through Rock or Blues guitarists, whyyyy!!! This is 21st century & old is not essencially gold. Be mordern & updated man. Modern Guitar is also about knowing the technical aspects. I don’t think any other genre knows more types of picking, legato, tapping, whammy bar & wah-pedal techniques than Rockers. Dear Eric Clapton haters beware, on top 10 most expensive guitar list you will find 5 of his used guitars!!! I listened to Ayub Bachoo. He is good, but not worth mentioning in this list.
The white circles along the top of the chord tell you that you should still be strumming those strings with no fingers pressed on them. If you see an X above a string that means you should try not to strum that string while playing the chord.
3 Eddie Van Halen Edward Lodewijk “Eddie” Van Halen is a Dutch-American musician, songwriter and producer. He is best known as the lead guitarist, occasional keyboardist and co-founder of the hard rock band Van Halen.
Buckethead would be Top 5 easy if he were more mainstream. The man can play anything and make it his own. If you’re interested, I’d give “Nottingham Lace”, “Final Wars”, “Big Sur Moon”, “Population Override”, and “Soothsayer” a try just to get an idea of what I’m talking about. The sky is the limit from there.
When buying your first guitar, it’s sensible to stop and think about what you are buying it for. Is it just something to learn on? Will you be upgrading in a year or two when you start thinking about forming a band, gigging, and recording? If so, you may be better off trying one of these affordable electric guitars, which all offer a solid platform on which to learn.
Now if this house is rocking, don’t bother knockin. Famous words by Stevie. Many people perhaps know him for Hendrix covers, but where Jimi left off Stevie continued, and continued he did. The elements of Hendrix were alive and plain to see in SRV, but with it, he also mixed in his own influences such as Albert King and his own soul to make it his sound a trademark spot on his songs. I vaguely remember a car commercial where I spotted Stevie’s playing (Pride and Joy) in a Nissan ad. That was much before I really got into Vaughan’s work. SRV was an artist who could play while absolutely stoned face. And when he did sober up, he actually played better. His newfound health and love for life and music are showcased on In Step his last album before his death a year later. Stevie’s footprints will always be in the air and in our hearts.
Hollow: These electric guitars are composed of entirely hollow bodies, allowing them to be used both plugged-in and unplugged. They qualify as electric guitars because they are outfitted with electric pickups.
When deciding piano vs guitar lessons, it boils down to preference. These are all fairly minor considerations in the scheme of things, especially compared to other instruments. Do you want instant gratification on the piano with all your keys laid out in front of you like a map of music? Or are you willing to work a little harder to memorise the fretboard quickly so you shred on electric guitar? Both piano and guitar are equally good at providing the essential fundamentals of music that other instruments like drums or voice don’t offer. They are both excellent beginner instruments that offer different paths to the same goal – to enjoy playing music and perhaps even become a professional musician someday.
The colors are bold, and while the designs of the guitars’ bodies aren’t radical, the necks are a bit of a departure and the headstocks could have been taken from a Stratocaster. (Fender has done this before — and there’s currently one acoustic, the Sonoran, in its range that evokes the look of the company’s electrics.)
Always factor in the size of your instrument. If you are a young player – or are buying a guitar for a child – consider that small hands playing on a full-size guitar may be more difficult than if you had an electric guitar made for kids.
These days things are different. Thousands of guitars are available to you at the click of a button. You can find everything you need online, from any kind of guitar you could imagine, to amps, strings and even some top-rated guitar lessons for beginners.
There are a lot of great guitarists on the list. It is always distressing, however, to see lists which highlight only guitarists widely known in the Western world. The lack of representation from many traditions around the world is disappointing, but understandable. It would be nice if someone put together a list that was at least representative of world over sensibilities, and which didn’t rely so heavily on popularity as a measure of skill. Even so, I applaud the depth of this list, and hope someone takes up my challenge to expand the horizons of musicians that look for new experiences.

Another topic- Top Guitar song intros. Talk about a long list. Here are some: Keith Richards in “Gimme Shelter”. Many John Fogerty songs. Steve Morse “Cruise Missle”, Van Halen “Ain’t Talkin about Love”, “Whole Lotta Love”, “The Song Remains the Same”, “You Shook Me All Night Long”
And noone can deny the fact that Jim Root of Slipknot and Stone Sour is right up their in the same category as Hendrix. I am not saying he is as good as Hendrix, but it a known fact that Jim is naturally left handed, but plays guitar right handed. In my opinion, that takes a lot more skill than flipping a guitar over and restringing it.
