It's got to be one of two, the edge for his power chords and gary moore for his exquisit riffs.

Cool choice rick,
but lynard skynard's free bird has to be a cassic,
unsurpassed by any other 4 minuite solo.

Except for one of Albert Lee's solos (not the blues guy).

What about good old slow hand?

Or how about Junior Brown?

Perhaps Leo Kottke for his 12-string slide work.

Billy McLaughlin is excellent as well. Pure finger strength. Only uses hammer ons and pull offs in most of his songs. Plays the basslines with his right hand and melody with the left.

Mark Knopfler's still my favorite to listen to.

can't stand mark knopfler clinical approach to the guitar, though i must say that he plays some hard riffs, but there's no feeling in it

Have you listened to his latest two albums? Golden Heart and Sailing to Philadelphia, I think they've got tons of feeling. Songs like Local Hero(on greatest hits), Golden Heart, Are We In Trouble Now, Sands of Nevada, or The Last Laugh.

For feeling, I'd have to go with one of James Taylor's songs or perhaps SRV's version of Little Wing.

IMO some of the best...

Jimmy Page - do I really need to comment? The man is brilliant.

Jimmi Hendrix - possibly the greatest guitarist of all time.

Stevie Ray Vaughan - listen to "Love Struck Baby". It's blues, rock, jazz, pop all in 2 minutes. He is like a white Hendrix.

Dave Gilmour - he's a bit heavy handed, but you can really feel the emotion he puts into his playing (see "Marooned").

No question, Hendrix hands down

Let's give a mention to some other greats, like Randy Rhodes(black sab)

Trevor Burton (the move), who's still in his element playing today in some back street pubs.

Chris Rea, the slide king.

Rory Gallagher (this dude rocks big time).

& if it's feelin you want T J Hooker's my man.

I stand corrected Fordy!

but do you agree that black sabbath wasn't the same without ozzy?
or do you think that dio was as good if not better for the band?

by the way which where you fav tracks?

I haven't got one in particular war pigs, mr crowley, iron man, sabbath bloody sabbath, killing yourself to live am i going insane & the wizard to mention a few, goodbye to romance & changes always reduces the wife to tears.

Do I get the feeling I've seen this thread before?

Fraser Thorneycroft-Smith or Stephen Rothery have to be among the best in my book for feeling and riffs....

...for technical excellence Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and John Petrucci.

Oh yeah...I dont like any of the post Ozzie stuff.......it went sort of glam, when before it was like evil hippie music.......cool as hell :)

Fav tracks;

Sweet Leaf - Riff from hell

Snowblind - I learned to play this years ago, easy and sounds cool on the verse

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Another riff from hell

War Pigs - I first heard the Faith no More version of this, but the original is cool too

NIB - The bass at the start is amazing. Les Claypool(Primas) covered this with Ozzy; with him doing the bass it sounded cool as hell
