Easy Guitar Guy's list of 100 greatest guitar players ever may not be famous yet but I believe it will be some day. Why? Because I don't let corporations and record companies tell me who the best guitar players are. For that reason you may see names on my list that you've never heard of before. And no, I didn't include my own name.
Right now we have the best rock and roll guitar players lumped in with the best blues players. I may decide to split them up into categories later to make it easier for fans of a particular musical genre or electric or acoustic guitar music to find musicians to research.
Meanwhile, if there's a picker that I've neglected to mention who you feel deserves to be recognized, you are welcome to use the form below to send in his/her name for consideration. Tell us about their band, send us a picture! We love to meet new talent.
Speaking of opinions; you are more than welcome to leave a comment voicing your opinion on why Eric Clapton should rank higher than Chuck Berry or that one or another of the musical geniuses on the list is highly overrated but keep it civil. Send in a book on the subject if you want to but use decent language and refrain from attacking other people's opinions.
Remember a FAST player isn't always the BEST player. If I never teach my students anything else, I want them to learn that playing lots of notes doesn't make you great.
Do you have a favorite guitar player? Tell us who, what band they play in or a song they've done.
