Favorite Guitar Players

Tonight I was on Facebook attempting to list my Top Five Guitar Players. It was an impossible task. I still can't do it so I thought I would post a longer list here of some of my favorite guitar players. I have limited this list to guitar players that I have actually seen play live. I could list more but these are the musicians I never grow tired of hearing. Their virtuosity has provided some of the great moments of my life. Yes, I've had great rock and roll experiences in my life. The list speaks for itself.
  • Duane Allman and Dickie Betts of the Allman Brothers Band
  • Eric Clapton
  • Robbie Krieger of the Doors
  • Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead
  • Buddy Guy
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Joe Walsh
  • Jorma Kaukonen of the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna
  • Robert Fripp of King Crimson
  • Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin
  • Leslie West of Mountain
  • Hughie Thomasson and Billy Jones of the Outlaws
  • David Gilmour of Pink Floyd
  • Carlos Santana
  • Alvin Lee of Ten Years After
  • Robin Trower
  • Toy Caldwell of the Marshall Tucker Band
  • Stevie Ray Vaughn
  • Pete Townshend of the Who
  • Johnny Winter
  • Steve Howe of Yes
  • Neil Young
  • Frank Zappa

I would like to bring to your attention a few other great Canadians. Alex Lifeson (Rush) and Jeff Healey. Other than that we have similar tastes my friend.

Good catch! I am not familiar with Jeff Healey but I have seen Rush and I love Alex Lifeson. There's many other great players I left off my list.
