Just look up any Eddie Van Halen clip. Try “Cathedral”

I love Angus Young or Keith Richards. Clapton is amazing, as is Slash, The Edge, Rick Nielsen, etc

Some great stuff! I like this by Roy Buchanan. And I can’t forget Frank Zappa

What kind? Classical, jazz, rock, or country? And there may be others I don’t know.

Rodrigo y Gabriella Gabriella is hands down the greatest female guitarist and one of the best guitarists I’ve ever seen.

And then of course there is always Buckethead

Edit: Looks like @Michael_Huntington already mentioned Rodrigo y Gabriella

The solo in the song “date rape” by sublime. Awesome song all around!

Roy Clark is one of the world’s greatest musicians. Seriously, can you imagine those fat fingers doing that?

One more of the best the world has ever witnessed. Enjoy.

I was just listening to Tom Waits’ Hoist That Rag with Marc Ribot on guitar (and Les Claypool on bass). Forgot how much I enjoy this song – and the guitar in it.

Man, I love that voice, @tom_g.

Oh crap, how could I overlook Jeff Beck.

bkcunningham's avatar

I could do this all night. Two of my favorites. Met them both and got hugs. You can’t mention Clapton without mentioning the master.

Her fret tapping style is unmatched, @fundevogel. I like her even more on the steel guitar. She is a true talent.

Never mind.

Andy Mckee is great. There are a lot of guitarists who can play a lot of notes really fast or play really loud… but Andy has a very smooth technique and his passion comes through in his music.

Virtuoso guitar playing knocks my socks off, but I think there’s a lot to be said for simplicity. Jose Gonzalez is just a guy and a guitar. There’s no showing off, just simple arrangements and sincerity. I love it!
