    Not really my area but:

    Mark Knopfler??

    Then of course you have Julian Bream, CBE, of a different genre.

    I very nearly said Slash, but backed out due to lack of knowledge.

    Better to stay quiet than to open your mouth and remove all doubt and all that.

    ^ In all fairness Gerbil, this form would be a hell of a lot thinner if it weren't for repeat topics.

    New members come, opinions change. Half the posters probably hadn't joined last time it was asked, and probably won't ever go searching through the archives to find it.

    It's all good.

    Harry Manx sits down to play. He's excellent.

    Yes, SRV and Santana deserve it. But there's only seven choices.

    My view'd be a lot different. Sure BB King is great because he was one of the early ones. He's easy to copy. It's the guys I can't copy who get my respect. Of course I'd have to like their music too. Robben Ford can't be copied, Danny Gatton either, Albert Collins is in a class of his own. Santana is fairly easy to figure out. Guys like Clapton and Moore haven't a lot of originality, but I like them both. Steve Vai and all those other speed freak finger tricksters leave me cold.

    ^

    Placing the likes of Julian Bream or John Williams in a list with those other guitarists is like listing a couple of gothic cathedrals alongside a collection of rooming houses and cheap hotels.
