I never, ever liked the idea that the faster you play, the better guitarist you are. I think if you make good music with the guitar and innovate without resorting to wowing people with 40 notes every 10 seconds or whatever, you're a good guitarist. Hendrix made so many awful songs. "Manic Depression", what the hell was that. Now I'll sound like a hypocrite : I like Buckethead and Clapton, I'd say. Then there's Randy Rhoades. Les Claypool. :;):

Definitely Steve Howe...

after that, probably Mark Knopfler, Chet Atkins, David Gilmour, Wes Montgomery... I guess it all depends on what kind of mood I'm in... Couldn't really say that any one is better than the other - they're all so different in style, you just have to know what you're looking for at that particular moment!

Dave Gilmour, of course.
Also Pete Townshend.
Also that guy from Sigur Ros, whatever his name is.
Oh, and Kyle Gass.

i hate blues rock guitarists, like virtually everyone who has been chosen so far. Wes is a good choice, and so is Fripp, though... Belew's good, and ...Nile Rogers is THE man. get Fripp and Rogers together! (unless this has already happened)
