On October 22nd it was Petrucci, now it's Dimebag.

It's neither, if we're talking outside of preference. Certainly not Dimebag.

I think they are... anyway I really like those videos on youtube where John Mclauhglin, Al Di Meola and Paco de Lucia and sometimes Larry Corryell get together and play. Truly amazing

This isn't an "In my opinion" thread, which it should be.

Buckethead is technically miles ahead of everyone on that list, except maybe John 5. Dimebag is nowhere near as skilled as either of them. Unless you did it in order of preference.

How is Eddie Van Halen below Billy Gibbons? What are you on?

I disagree with B.B. King and Dimebag Darrell being so high on your lists, but it is your opinion.

Guys like Vai shouldn't be mentioned? WTF????

Their's nothing easy about making a whole album,telling a story,and never using vocals to do it.

Jesus Christ. She and Yoko Ono need to be given a court order to never, under any circumstances, produce new music. Ever. Though, I will also say that I was never a fan of her hubby, either.

Buckethead, Page, Hendrix.

Those are the main three that I believe are the best. They pretty much speak for themselves.

Clapton was hailed as one of the world's best when Hendrix came along in his early 20s and was in awe.

-AC
Agreed! Just listen to SRV's covers of Jimi...most notably "Voodoo Chile"

Buckethead is better than Page and Hendrix combined.

"Technical ability" is just one factor in determining how 'good' a guitarist is. People look for different things in a guitarist, and speed isn't for everyone, anyway. That being said, Page is incredible. He set the standard for all other guitarists who aimed to perform and play in a professional style. Hendrix on the other hand gave us noise, beautiful fuzz, I mean come on. Give me "Good Times, Bad Times" or "Hey Joe" over whatever the hell Buckethead does any day. Not to diss Buckethead, the guy's cool, but he just plays for the sake of it. He doesn't have as much soul or emotion like the aforementioned guitarists do.

I submit J Mascis as a contender for one of the best guitarists of all time.
