Jimi Hendrix!

Here's a list of all the things that he contiributed to:

1. Schooled every guitar player on the planet how a guitar can sound
2. Created Rock Music
3. Made the Fender Strat what it is today
4. Made Marshall Amps what is is today
5. Jimi Effect Pedals
6. Jimi Hendrix Hall of Famer
7. Playing with teeth

Most guitar players would have not had a clue how to play a guitar if it was for the like of Jimi.

GOD Bless Him!

While Nancy wasn't my personal inspiration, she's a fantastic guitarist who's as deserving as anybody of the distinction. Check out some of their early stuff, especially live versions of dreamboat annie, she does stuff that I find amazing.

This includes sound, experimentation, skill/speed or anything else that made thios guitarist legendary.

Tell us why and don't be afraid to cite particular albums or songs, just shy away from hatin' on other ppl or their opinions.

Thanks and keep rockin'!

Based on this criteria... I have to say Joe Satriani. The dude has chops to spare and his music spans one of the wider ranges of styles I have heard. Nearly every song has something that amazed me the first time I heard it.

As for most influential, that is too hard because players of different genres of music are inspired by different musicians. I think Jimi Hendrix is way up there because he inspired so many rock musicians and rock is a huge genre. Personally, Ace Frehley inspired me to pick up a guitar 25+ years ago.

damn, I forgot about Ace, he was like the Clapton of heavy glam rock!

dude kicked some serious butt in the early days.

Also mentionable is George Lynch, Warren DiMartini, and Jake E Lee - all 80's wankers, but really brought something special in their own way to the world of guitar. Sorry if I repeated anyone on any of those.

sorry bro but I just cant put Nancy Wilson in there with the best. She is good, but there are literally 1000 hot guitarist in Nashville that would smoke her ass.
I still have to go with Jeff Beck for most original and Stanley Jordan for best

Know that I am not a guitarist, but I am influenced deeply by many who play their ax well. I am a Stanley Jordan fan and I have signed up to study composition with him. Pat Matheney and the Late Michael Hedges are also important influences. Billy Mclaughlin, especially, sticks out there strongly. :wink: I don't want a drill about whose better or who sucks...these are who have influenced me and I don't even play guitar.

I think there is no answer to that question. It is almost like asking what is the best color.

how about steve morse (Dixie Dregs)? he pretty much stole the crown in the late 70s and early 80s. He still kicks butt with Deep Purple now (cant quite figure out how that happened). Check out this early number
