For technical skills no one can touch Michael Angelo Batio, no one. As you can see from this video he is not human. Incredible

There are many guitarists that are just as good if not better than Michael Angelo he is a fine guitarist but he is not extremely original
He is a copy cat of other guitarists of the 80's to present.. He tries to pull of Yngwie licks and it just sounds stale

Yngwie is a great guitarist but to me MAB makes him sound retarded.

MAB doesnt come close to people like Steve Vai, Allan Holdsworth or Guthrie Govan but he is a great guitarist just not original

Another one of my favorites, Mr. Paul Gilbert.

Sad to only see two mentions of this incredibly talented guy.

On frst listening to Randy Rhoads as a teenager, I couldn't stop listening to Mr Crowley for like a month. His solo in that song changed the way I appreciated music for the guitar. Yngvie had a similar impact, if only because he had that Baroque thing going on in his debut album. Yes, it gets old very quickly, but it paved the way for a bazillion copycats who wanted to sound exactly like him.

The pinnacle of musicality in guitar is in Robert Fripp and Frank Zappa.

Wanky axe shredders like batio and malmsteen are just clowns in comparison.

MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP [LIGHTS OUT] 1981

 

 

 

 

 

Lights Out          By UFO

I still get chills from this and I heard it in 1981 first.

 

I can never stop playing the UFO live album Strangers in the Night, I think it has the best recording of  Michael Schenker playing this song!

I saw the thread title and  immediately thought of buckethead.  He's my favourite guitarist by far.

Another shout out for Prince, that man is simply incredible on any instrument.

 

Has anybody said Nick Drake/Nic Jones - both outstanding folk guitarists.

 

Jonny Greenwood, for producing genuine attack and tone that is Hendrix like in the way it punctuates Radiohead's more rock-heavy tracks.

 

Hendrix himself. It might be a cliche to pick him, but he was simply unparalelled. On record, Chas Chandler did an amazing job of focusing his sound, a bit like Mick Jones did for The Libertines in the noughties.
