clapton, hendrix, and page (and in my opinion gilmour too) are great, but i just dont dig classic rock as much as i dig metal, but i still dig my zep and floyd especially. i def respect those guys tho. without them, my metal guys probably wouldnt be around

Jimmy Page is amazing on the Guitar; The solos he does are just outstanding

to be honest, some of pages stuff just isnt that impressive. hes just pretty much workin through the pentatonic scale, tho not too many people can fly through them like him. technically, hes nothing special. emotionally, hes up there.

im going to pull the cliche song here, but "stairway to heaven" is a great solo imho. i love it. i also love "over the hills and far away" and "the rover." those solos have emotion. some of his other stuff doest. i think that gilmour has some of the most soul ever

Steve Vai is great. His technique is awesome but he's not as good an actual song writer as Joe IMO. His songs impress me more by what he can do then by their compisition.

Anyways I'm much more of an electronic music lover then a guitar lover.

If Petrucci is a young (at the time) country'ish talented guitar player then that's the G3 I was at. Was a great set, they all came out together and played Down Town at the end.

Thanks mrmetal_53 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif , I like your list as well. I didn't leave off Randy and Zakk on purpose, there are just so many. BTW, have you heard Zakk's band Pride & Glory? Kind of Skynyrd meets Sabbath or something, but very good IMHO.

Oh, yeah... nice pic, and John Petrucci ROCKS!!!

i have, ive heard a couple songs. they arent bad. i prefer black label society, but we all know his best album was with ozzy, no more tears http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

dont get me started with john petrucci, i will ramble on and on. hes my favorite guitarist ever. i have honestly never seem someone with so much talent. it is very mind-numbing, as a guitarist, to see someone so talented.

have you heard of liquid tension experiment, a little side project that petrucci, portnoy, ruddess and tony levin (from king crimson) did during 98 and 99 before scenes from a memory was realeased? they recorded their second album in 6 days! it was around 80 minutes long. awe-inspiring when you think of that........

Thanks for the tip... I will be checking out "Liquid Tension Experiment" soon (if I can find it locally, anything that's not mainstream or top 10 is hard to get in my area without going to Charlotte, NC... which is about an hour from where I live).

As far as "No More Tears", it's my fave except for "Diary of a Madman". Ozzy seems to bring out the best in almost every guitarist that he uses (I'd love to see what Randy would be like now http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )... Maybe it's Ozzy's drugs or something... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'd have to go for john petrucci, prog all the way.
Then there's Michael Angelo &lt;-- HERO
Yngwie, "THE ****EN FURY" Malmsteen (got to know this guy otherwise you're a nOOb I don't care what you say)
Then you have your satch and vai
Michael Romeo of Symphony X
Rusty Cooley

These guys form most of my music that I like then there's like regular metal...then your pop trash.

Maybe I'm dating myself (isn't that illegal in some states?) but does anybody remember Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush), Roy Clark (can play ANYTHING with strings!), George Benson, or Robert Cray?

I'm really an old school rock & roll guy, but I have MUCH respect for great guitar players, no matter what type of music they happen to play.

I agree with most of the previous names listed...I just wanted to throw a few more into the mix.

Like a few of the other posters said though...there are WAY too many to list!
