Great list! Nice to see Frusciante on your list. Maybe you can help us convince George to move him into the top 100?

Agreed. We need combined efforts to persuade George moving him into the Top 100.

Great lists by Sippe (you should post a lot more here) and Rusty.

My list would be a combinatino of both. The huge problem with this forum is that most posters can´t appreciate equally both lists. IMO the guitarists of those lists are equally great.

It is a HUGE problem. A new reader of the list could think that rock guitar has been dead for +20 years. That is not true. For example, IMO 90´s rock guitar is A LOT better than 80´s rock guitar.

You forgot the "not" after the "can". You mean we can not appreciate equally both list, right?

Well, it's a Favorite Guitarists Directory topic. That kind of gives it away, doesn't it? Every poster posts THEIR favorite guitar players. So how can that be a problem? Just because most posters here don't share your guitar oriented beliefs doesn't mean that this is wrong. Further more, im sure each poster here has their own criteria of what they like and how they rate their guitar players according to that. And its really none of your concern as to what these individual criterias are, but just to explain, for example, my favorite area of guitar is lead guitar. Electric lead guitar mostly. And I rate MY favorite guitar players by how much I love their lead playing (live playing plays a big part here too) and how much they either inspire or influence (or both) me in my own playing. Of course I also love guitar driven music and songwriting/riffs and that plays a part too but only if the lead part is also there to some extent. But there are also some players I simply enjoy listening to or have had an impact on me in some part of my life. Though, the fact my list doesn't have White or Frusciante for example, doesn't mean I don't like or appreciate WS or RHCP. I like both quite a lot. But I wont put either of those players in my favorites because they just don't cut it compared to everyone else. I like a great number of bands from 60's to today. If I put each guitarist of the bands I like in my list I would have 150 of them. But 120 of them would nothing for me looking at them individually. And thus my list of favorites. This is one story of one individual, in this case, me. There is one for each poster who posted their favorites I am sure. So, I ask, who are you to come here, where people post their personal favorites, and give lectures on what you think is right or how you think it should be?

As for rock guitar being dead for 20+ years...well, by my criteria, it mostly is, compared to 60's and 70's for sure. :cheers: And you are wrong about the 90's and 80's rock guitar too.
