David gilmour is one of the best, and pink floyd has some of the best albums ever. However, one of the best guitarists of all time has to be Eddie van Halen, Jimmy Page, hell prince was an awesome guitar player too!

Some would argue Page, Malmsteen, Dimebag, Satriani, and/or Clapton. Maybe even Larry Coulton or Robben Ford

Don't get me wrong... I love Dave's music... It's beautiful and some of my favourites but to call him the best guitarist isn't entirely accurate IMO. It's also a matter of individual taste of the listener. Not just how well they command the instrument.

Regardless of your tastes, Buckethead's technical playing, manipulation of the guitar, and overall clean fretting places him at an extraordinarily high level of skill. He's one of the best guitarists based on ability alone.

>implying there is only one at the top

I'm sure there are plenty of people who have taken music theory, music appreciation, and various lessons for classical, flamenco, jazz, and other forms of guitar music and have played enough to know many scales and techniques. Since the guitar is finite what you can learn, there are several people who are probably matched in talent. We often think there's only one because that's our favorite one. But be careful not to be biased. It pisses people like me off.

>Dave Davidson from Revocation
>Christopher Arp from Psyopus
>Lucas Mann from Rings of Saturn
>Most djent guitarists
>Many metal guitarists

So yeah. Saying there's only one who is better than everyone else is retarded. Having a favorite is a little bit more honorable, but, like I said, there is a finite amount of knowledge about guitar, so you should at least have multiple favorites. Exception is if you have one that you are currently most "into."

I'm not trying to tell you how to think, I'm just trying to make sure you don't make an ass of yourself later on.

As much as I love Dave and have known him for years btw, he is only an above average guitarist instrumentally speaking and he has admitted this many times
.
As a writer, he was top notch though he has lost his creativity for the most part long ago. His best work was when he collaborated with Waters and you can hear it in his guitar emptiness and unfocused meanderings on those tunes Roger (whom I don't like frankly) did not work on with him.

If I'm fair, his latest album is terrible. I know he needs the money, but come on man. It's an embarrassment.

While most of these "best guitarist" rankings are based on popularity, rather than actual talent, no serious list leaves Joe Satriani, Eddy Van Halen and Steve Vai out of the top ten. Those three are pure hand speed, fluidity, precision, and the quickest bridgework ever know. Serious guitarists have trouble even attempting some of their best work.

Pretty much says it all. Not a guitar player but am a vocalist has-been myself. Used to love Gilmour. As you listen to more guitarists you realize he is way overproduced and has to run shit through a pissload of equipment to sound decent. I heard this has always been the complaint about him from others who have played with him. I've seen him live a few times and he can't play live much at all and usually has a backup guitarist with him on stage to do the real playing. He'll grab a few riffs and that's it.

His voice is one-dimensional in my book too with no range on top of it. He's always overreaching to be edgy and mysterious, but really only sounds like a dying old man and always has.

Grow up.

It's Stevie Ray Vaughan or "Stevie". If you type in "SRV" you will literally get zero hits. That's what a fuckup you are. That's how hard you try to sound cool and in-the-know.

And you lost all credibility by posting others that no one knows or cares about.

>>
>>680525667
That's fucked up.
I just saw him perform at the UC myself and both me and my entire group thought he sucked. In fact, I know a couple guys that work there and there was some pretty obvious lip syncing and dubbing going on. On the tunes he actually played on, you must have noticed he had two other leads and they did all the heavy lifting. He's not the same Gilmour I saw long ago and it's kind of sad.

Funny how different people can have different impressions. I have seen easily over 500 concerts in my day though, so I might be coming from a different perspective. If you'd never seen Gilmour or Floyd before, it probably sounded fantastic but I promise you it was nothing compared to what it was, though I tripped through most of that shit back then.

I'm not a big fan of the UC for concerts, but yeah, nosebleed probably sounded great. It's not built for accoustics obviously. I saw Rush there awhile ago and had seen them easily 20 times in the past and it was hands down their worst performance ever by far. Granted Geddy's voice has been shot for years, but it was bad. There again, a lot of people thought it was great. All a question of perspective.

I'm old enough to have seen Floyd during the Animals tour and in my opinion this is when they peaked. Gilmour hasn't been Gilmour to be honest since he and Waters parted ways. As a guitarist, he's ok, but not more than that. I love his voice, but it's mostly nostalgic preference and familiarity I have come to learn. His vocal range is limited and he was never anything more than an average vocalist anyway.

Long drive for you to UC. I'm not in love with Tinley Park's acoustics either, but they are still better than UC.

My parents saw Floyd many times in their 20's and 30's and my mom said the shows were better than, probably for nostalgic reasons as well. I am a metal head myself, so I'm prefer and am used to much smaller venues. It was Gilmour playing Floyd, so for me it was a good time. I feel kind of bad for him that he is essentially stuck playing Floyd songs. I'm sure he understands that it's what most people want though.

The drive isn't too bad. Took a little over an hour. I haven't been to Tinley since it was the World Theater or whatever it was called.

While Dave Mustaine is a better guitarist than Hetfield (who is way better than Hammett) Hetfield has better vocals than Dave. Friedman also beats Hammett on the lead guitar.

However Ellefson have never been a better bass player than Cliff Burton was.

Jimi Hendrix and Joe Satriani
Hendrix just made shit up and never practiced or anything. He was just a natural who was one with the guitar. Keep in mind too that this was all pre-manipulation. Just a guitar and an amp and he made it sound magical with his hands. He was also incredibly diverse. Not a ton of his live shit out there, but maybe give this a listen:

youtube.com/watch?v=xAWtuxhdUDE

or listen to his solo on Little Wing.

#2 is Joe Satriani. When he wants to show off, he can make anybody modern day look like a child on guitar.

I note that most of the "guitarists" cited in this thread are not mainstream and just seem to go out of their way to show off. That does not make someone a good guitarist. If you cannot blend that guitar with the other instruments to make good music, you suck in my opinion. Watching gymnastics by one closet fuck on a guitar is not anything but that and the great guitarists make the guitar cry at all paces and can do so through virtually any musical genre. That's why Satriani is amazing. Who's who in guitar around the world fly in to take lessons from him for months. You can't find a major guitarist that hasn't studied him, his techniques, and read all his shit. Who else does that? Can't say that about anybody else on this thread.

would be unfair to do otherwise, the question is which human is the best guitarist, wouldnt be fair to mention a god.

>>680529532
What about Jeff Beck? He utilizes the guitar in a non-conformal way, and he abuses certain qualities of his guitar to achieve amazing tones. For me finding these little special gimmicks on an instrument truly captures its spirit. Playing fast is a mechanical process, yet spending time to find unique effects of the system is far more interesting.

You guys seem to realize that technical prowess and playing from emotion are one in the same but they're not. David Gilmour is an amazing guitarist. Like Hendrix, Pat Metheny and the other greats. Yeah everyone's gonna throw in the metal guys, but speed is not everything. It's how the artist puts their instrument to use on a given song.

Yeah, but it's less about the music than the deadhead atmosphere and the dope and you know it. Seen the dead many times. Nothing useful to remember musicwise. Great party. Maybe the best.

The Allman Brothers Band sold out 15-20 nights every year at the Beacon. Their legacy speaks for itself. The only band with 4 of the top 100 guitarists ever...One of the most ground breaking and influential American bands ever.

90% of all professional musicians who play electric guitar disagree with you and believe Jimi Hendrix is the best ever. He was the Michael Jordan of guitarists. Something just magical that you can't really explain but have to feel, see, and breathe for yourself.

FYI, Hendrix was not pure negro. He had white grandfather who was one of the richest men in Illinois. He also had Cherokee blood.

There's many different styles of music and different ways people play so saying one is better than the other really doesn't make sense. But when it comes to the technical aspects of playing the men I listed are the best I know.
