Clapton- The guy can rise above the song without overpowering it and on top adds the riffs to make the songs memorable.
Harrison- Maybe the best at playing within the framework of the song, yet still adding a lot to it.
Edge- While I know he's knocked a lot by guitar fans as not being very good, no one adds tone to a song like he does.
Mike Campbell- Doesn't play loud or overpower but listen closely, he adds some great guitar parts that blend perfectly with the rest of the music.
There are others of course, some more talented, faster, cleaner, better effects etc. but for guys like me who like the guitar as part of the song instead of the music as something in the backround of the guitar solos, these guys to me are the best.
