Best 10 (in no order)

1) John Petrucci
2) Jimi Hendrix
3) Jimmy Page
4) Yngwie
5) Joe Satriani
6) Steve Vai
7) Tom Verlaine

I can't name any more, but I despise most of them apart from a bit of Page and Hendrix and Verlaine, which I don't mind in small doses.

Favourite:

1) The Edge
2) James Dean Bradfield

Favorite guitarists:

1. The Edge
2. Jimmy Page
3. Adam Jones
4. Tom Morello
5. Eric Clapton
6. George Harrison
7. Lindsey Buckingham
8. Mark Knopfler
9. Johnny Marr
10. B.B. King

It's always nice to see nods for Robert Smith and James Dean Bradfield. I'd drop Chet Atkins and Joe Pass onto a "best" list along with a lot of the other names already mentioned. I'm not a big country or jazz fan but they're gods in those realms.

My fave guitarists are:

The Edge
Geordie "I've got chords to play" Walker (Killing Joke)
Andreas Bruhn (german guitarist, ex The Sisters of Mercy)
Dave Gilmour
Peter Buck

I'm not a big fan of guitar solos. They can be like jazz, great fun to play but boring to listen to IMO. That's why I was so disappointed with the last Pink Floyd album, most of the songs ran out of imagination and into DG's rent-a-solo. But on every PF album before he plays brilliantly - melodically and emotionally.
