Is David the best?
#1
Do you think David Gilmour is the best guitarist of all time? If not then who is the best?

Arno Sluismans would say that I, Floydy, is the best guitarist.

Heh, I guess it depends. He's definitely one of the more "intelligent" (I suppose that's not really the right word) guitarist out there; he doesn't give a damn about how difficult or easy his plays are. The only thing he cares about it what they sound like, which is something most musicians have trouble with. Technically, I don't think he even comes close to being the best guitarist in the world, though. Aesthetically, he's probably the best.

Emotionally, absolutely. Technically, no I don't believe so. I don't think he's technically a better guitarist than Jimi Hendrix or Duane Allman. He would never say that in terms of technical ability he's the best guitarist that ever lived, so I certainly won't.

That being said, I love, love, love what he does and the way he does it, because it's unique to him and the music he makes.

(i know weve already discussed this LF) but people, if you had to pick between David Gilmour and Jimmy Page as your favourite who would you pick (who do you think is better)?

David Gilmour hands down. Jimmy Page is a very different guitar player to David. As has been said before, David is a more aesthetically atuned guitar player, he doesn't play a million notes an hour like Jimmy Page can (Watch "The Song Remains The Same" DVD) All I can say is, I would sell my soul to the Devil to play the guitar like David Gilmour.

P.S I'm a huge Led Zeppelin fan as well, Jimmy Page is another favourite guitar player of mine.

Like everybody said, technically, he isn't the best. He's very good, but he isn't the best. Emotionally, he's incredible, and I'd class him as number one. He has a sense of music, and he doesn't give a flying poop about speed and such things.
...our minds shot together.

Gilmour, without doubt.

David Gilmour is better than Jimmy Page, IMO.

Anyway, all threads like this do is devolve into circular conversation -- anytime you deal with something subjective like this, all you can do is talk in circles.

You know the reason this forumpage was opened was because I wanted to know what people have to say about David and what they have to say about him and Jimmy Page spesificly. I'm not looking for a fight or an argument I just want to see the pros and cons of Gilmour's guitar work. Lets keep it freindly Happy
