Lightbulb The official *GUITAR GODS* thread
I'd like to devote this thread to guitar players. Any good ones you've ever heard and most especially those who can be considered a *God* worthy of our worship.

This guitar worship is a polytheistic religion so any guitarist from any genre can be considered.

I know we have a few guitar players in here so tell me who have you been influenced by most or tell me which guitarists do you think should be hailed as a GOD.

I think a good one to start out with is probably Guthrie Govan. I'm not sure if he's reached God status yet but he sure does sport the archetypal wizard beard quite well. Coincidence...? I think not!

Stevie Ray Vaughan has my vote...as well as Clapton, Hendrix, Santana, Leo Kottke...so many guitar players I love.

Stevie Ray Vaughan is no doubt an Olympian. Yes

I know he's a mercurial pain in the arse but Ritchie Blackmore has to be in the top ten.

This thread will be very boring until people stop mentoning the same names we've heard a million times from guitar world and rolling stone.






EDIT:Maybe I should have read the first post all the way thru

Is he? (A pain I meant)... I do love his Blackmore's Night (not surprising as I love mediaeval and renaissance music and most of his Blackmore's Night stuff is his own interpretation of traditional renaissance and older pieces).
