    I just listed some guitarists who may possibly be in some ones opinion the best classic rock guitarist :big grin:

    If I had to form an opinion of my own...
    I'd say Stevie, or David Gilmour FTW. :bowdown:

    my favorite has always been martin barre of jethro tull. hands down,the most versatile rock guitarist around...and his tone is second to none.

    I honestly don't think that there can be a #1 best ever, just simply because there are so many 'versitile' styles and tones and if you're a music fan, you know that if it sounds like nothing else... it has to be good. :cool: Originality FTW.

    of course,who is to judge? music is an art and what may be art to some...is crap on a stick to others.

    there are only opinions when it comes to subjects such as these.

    Is Van Halen not classic rock enough to be up here?

    I agree with Hendrix, Clapton's overrated by a country mile, Satch really isn't classic rock, and Gilmour is awesome.

    If we're talking about guitarists from that era, than I'd have to say...

    - Shawn Lane (Black Oak Arkansas, way ahead of his time)
    - Al Di Meola
    - Steve Howe (Yes)
    - Alex Lifeson (Rush)
    - Richie Blackmore (Deep Purple)
