    Just screwing around, so many greats have been mentioned, but I will have to add B.B. King to the list. Few people can match him when he is armed with Lucille.

  • Jimi Hendrix was the best ever. He was from another planet. Jimi never played cover songs (with the exception of some Beatles and Dylan) because he didn't have to. Stevie Ray was great too, but played a lot of cover songs live, including many Jimi covers. Stevie was never the creator Jimi was but technically Stevie was as clean as you'll ever hear.

    Jimi Hendrix was hands down the greatest ever.
    Jimmy Page is my number two.

    I can't decide between these two Gods:

    Jimi Hendrix
    Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Some days I give SRV the edge just because he was around longer to perfect his style. On the other hand, no guitar player has been more influential than Jimi.
    Rock on!

    tons of great ones...but after Jerry Garcia, Trey did for me for over 200 concerts and never let me down. Still doesnt, except for the drug arrest

    I really can't believe that all the people that have mentioned Trey haven't said a word about Carlos Santana, listen to Lotus and you can tell what an influence Carlos was on Trey.

    Never really saw Hendrix, I'd put him right up there, saw SRV about 6 times, he's up there also.

    Alex Lifeson (RUSH), David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Mick Ronson (Bowie), Mike McCready, Dave Davies, Randy Roads, Tony Iommi, Jeff Beck these are just some of my favorites from through out the years, I'd still have to say Frank Zappa is my favorite, thanks to my friends older brothers when I was in Jr. High, these are just my favorite rock guitar players. I want even get into it about,

    Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, Eric Gale, Al Di Meola, Holin Wolf, Lighting Hopkins, Albert Collins, Albert King, John McLaughlin, etc.

    I was at that show.. I was 15 and visiting my cousins in NY for New Years. They got me a ticket and took me to Madison Square Garden with them.:D The best concert I've ever been to!!! That version of Reba is my favorite... starting at 6:00 til the end is just mindblowing! Nobody peaks a jam like Trey

    I love Satriani. For all of the shredders and solo rock guitarists, he is the only one who consistantly makes listenable, complete albums. He's an amazing musician with a knack for melody and keeping instrumental rock interesting.

    Favourite would be Jimmy Page.

    Greatest would have to be the other Jimi :)

    Most overrated - Slash

    cmon!!!!! If I(and others) were to mention everyone who influenced Trey I would have also said Zappa, Pat Metheny, Jerry Garcia, Carlos Santana, and countless others who also had a serious impact on his playing and style.

    personally Trey did more for me than any other guitarist...ever

    Trey Anastasio

    I'm listening to his solo on Ghost from Rochester '97 right now, and I might have to agree. Un-fucking-real. He always sounds unique and fresh, like I've never heard him solo before. He's just amazing. He can play so many styles, and it's possibly the best improviser I've ever heard. Many guitarists can't improvise, and unless they can, I don't know how they can be considered the greatest.

    lets not get overboard....saying hes the best at improvising??? I would almost bet Trey would admit hes not. Al DiMeola,Pat Metheny and plenty of jazz guitarists would argue that also.

    Trey was good..VERY good...and arguably one of the better guitarists out there today.Very diverse and able to sit in with and play with just about any band. And the fact that the band PRACTICED their improvisation made the band who they became to be.

    This conversation is silly though....cause who really is THE BEST???? There is no way anyone here can tell anyone else that Jimi Hendrix was the best guitarist alive. He might have been the most influential, and did more for the instrument than say Stevie Ray Vaughan, but its apples and oranges to compare the two.
