    My thought when I saw no one mentioned Eddie Van Halen untill page 3 :P

    I like all the good guitarists, though the only one that could come close as favorite is indeed Eddie Van Halen.

    David Gilmour and Robert Fripp


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5XSrauxPOw David Gilmour forms a chord by moving his fingers in reverse direction on the neck.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7P4dt4G5B0 Robert Fripp playing a 7/8 Time signature with the rest of the band in 4/4.


    both are unique and talented guitarists, those are my favourite examples of their work.

    I would have to say Dimebag, Jani Liimatainen (old Sonata Arctica) and Paul Gilbert. Those would be mine.

    I would have to agree with Synyster Gates. The two solos you mentioned are perfect examples, but there are countless others that are also good. I think he is incredibly talented, whether or not he's the best IDK, but I think he make the solos fit the pace of the song very well! Zacky does a pretty good job backing him up, and together their back-to-back type solos are sick nasty, especially live

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    I'll have to say... Paul gilbert!

    Though I also love Satriani, Vai, Petrucci, Eric Johnson, Eric Clapton... SRV, Hendrix, BB King... Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Santana...


    oh i could be here all day

    John Frusciante.

    No other guitarist puts so much soul into the pieces they play, like him. John is a great and free spirit that, compared to other money-horny artists, express himself through his music. People are blessed by God for being able to listen to and enjoy his music. There are lots of greats guitarists out in the world, but there will only be one like John.

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    Matt Thompson and Tommy Church do some very impressive metal, making this gem, imo the best metal solo i've ever heard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq-EgvaKgqU

    Jesper Stromblad, although arguably not a lead guitarist has pretty much created the sound that is In Flames

    The short, tea drinking Angus Young will kick your ass in such a simplistic way you won't know what to think.

    John Frusciante, Not really into his solo stuff but loved him In RHCP

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    I love Slash here and in many other Guns 'n Roses songs..

    But IMO, noone beats Alexi Laiho.

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    I'd have to say Petrucci as well. What's even more amazing is Dream Theater has one of the best contemporary guitarists as well as one of the best drummers ever in Mike Portnoy. Nuts.
