Probably an unusual choice here, but mine is Mikael Akerfeldt. He may not be the most skilled guitar player - certain not a virtuoso, but I just love everything he does. Rather like Steve Wilson - more simpler guitar solos that fit the song and thus don't have to be fast/complex/hard to play.

My favourite of the 'top' players is definitely Petrucci though. Sorry Vai and Satriani, but... yeh Tongue

I agree with karpatisz here. Hold up, hold up :dammitnick: < Just saw this - in what way does this link with Nick?

Anyway, there are so many great players that it's very difficult to gauge who is the best and of course what area are we basing this on? I think there are probably three main categories which are compositional ability, musical sensitivity (if you don't know what this is then it's something Satch talks about in one of his videos on modes) and technical ability. I honestly believe Petrucci is at the top of the range in all three of these areas, but then so are many other guitarists. For me it's Petrucci out of all those others because he plays in a style I really enjoy listening to.

Glad to see Lukather and Satriani in there, but why is Steve Vai ahead of Satriani? Satriani not only taught Vai but he is superior to him in practically every way. Often he will choose to play less but what he plays is always tasteful and sensitive to what is going on.

I wrote Steve Vai in the second place, because his live shows were much better for me the JS's shows. I saw them both 2 times in Budapest.

Fair enough I'd love to have been there, was it part of a festival or something?

My favourite is the mighty John Petrucci.

But I also worship (in no order):

Andy Latimer
David Gilmour
Mikael Åkerfeldt

They are all very different... but all of them are total geniuses.

Being a guitarist myself, I ironically can't even comment! There was a short period of time where I was in contact with Rusty Cooley for the great oppertunity to move down to Texas to study with him (a chance which, unfortunately might not happen due to relocation issues  Sad ) and he is an amazing guitarist that Petrucci has bowed down many times, admitted to him being an influence AND admitted that he has had his "ass kicked" by Rusty. Personally, I love them both, and I can't put one over the other, and they are both so humble that they would never claim to be better than anyone, but that is the way all guitarists should be. I mean, where do you start? Brian Maillard is AWESOME and I adore his work with great respect, but that is just one genre of music. All of these players, while amazing, are in their own "element" so to say, and a guitarist who specializes in classical, etc. can't even be compared.

Anyway, sorry to be long winded (in case you haven't noticed, I am  ) but I just think that needed to be said. I realize it all comes down to personal opinion, but there are so many amazing musicians out there, it boggles my mind as to where to start. When you at the level of Vai and Satch, there is no "better" just "different", and it comes down to your taste as to who you like better. Or at least that is my answer to your question Nimrod. So I can't really comment, but the guitarists mentioned in this post certainly are worthy of worship even if no one can be called the "best".

Huh, yeah I must have missed that haha Maybe he thinks that Neil Peart is so godly at drums that he has taken over the guitar realm with his drum talent as well? Though he might not answer for awhile, I hear he's in no Rush to do so. . .do I hear crickets?
