Who is your favourite guitarist?

For me is David Gilmour. Perhaps he is not the best guitarist, but I love his solos and the way it sounds. He is the guitarist for which I started learning guitar.

Other guitarist I like is Joe Satriani, although he plays very fast and currently I don´t have the level to play his songs.

I don't really have a favorite, but lately I have been listening to Big Wreck - a lot - because I have been immersing myself in the guitar work of Ian Thornley

"If it sounds cool, it is cool!"

Mike O

Works for me!

The reason I wanted to pick up a guitar is because of Carlos Santana.

He will forever remain, in my mind, one of the greatest guitarists ever. But after finally trying to learn guitar I have been exposed to so many great guitarists. And I probably would never had heard of them had I not finally try and learn. And I have largely been exposed to them because of conversaations like this.

Buddy Guy

T Bone Walker

Joe Bonamassa

Derek Trucks

Jeff Beck

All 3 Kings

Gary Moore

Peter Green

Debbie Davies

Hubert Sumlin

And, yes, David Gilmour

Many of the guitarists you have mentioned, I have never heard of... but I will and I hope to discover new sounds and a inspirational motive to continue playing guitar.

Thanks to all¡¡¡

Wow, just so many. Even if someone isn't on my faves list I enjoy listening to them and trying to learn a little something. Maybe they're all favourites, just a bit further down a gigantic list. But up at the top of my list:

Nuno Bettencourt

Joe Satriani

Steve Vai

Guthrie Govan

Steven Rothery

the Hawkins brothers (The Darkness)

Francis Dunnery

Neil Schon

Reb Beach

Marty Friedman

Paul Gilbert

Steven Wilson

Steve Lukather

There's loads more. Basically, anyone that's better than me 😄
