    John Frusciante, hands down. Many people say he is Jesus reborn, and I think he is. In my opinion he is the best living guitar player atm.

    Check his solos at youtube. Search for "Parallel Universe Slane Castle"

    Paul Gilbert, Joe Satrianni, Slash, Jimmy H. Mars Volta guy, Vai, Friedman, Mustaine, Dimebag Darrell, K. King, Tom Morello, Van Halen, Tommy Emmanuel, Zappa, Eddie Hazel, etc.

    Not necessarily the fastest or most technically gifted but I really enjoy their music nonetheless.

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    God I don't have one favourite!

    But my favourites are, in no particular order:

    Stevie Ray Vaughan (imo one of the top 3 guitarists of all time)
    Paul Gilbert (can play a lot of different styles better than most people can play one style, although some of his lyrics suck lol)
    Matt Bellamy (probably the best live guitarist I've seen)
    Eddie Van Halen (possibly fighting for best guitarist with Hendrix)

    And ofc, the legend that is Jimi Hendrix who really doesn't need a reason apart from that he is awesome lol.
    Must... resist... posting... huge... animated GIF...

    Jimi hendrix is sweet but his style is soo sloppy. Jimmy paige on the other hand is the absolute best guitar player when he is not on heroine

    the name is Andy Mckee. he plays an entire "band" with his guitar. he has percussion, bass, lead guitar, and almost sounds as though you can hear vocals as well in a sense.
