Although I have no best guitarist there are just too many..I must say Allan Holdworth, but I must disagree with the Steve Vai is sterile sounding... he had more soul that EVH.
As for guitarists who made me wanna take up guitar in the very first place.... John McLaughlin & Larry Coryell, my very first jazz-fusion concert in late 70's...then Lee Ritenour came along...then Allan blew my mind.

Don't forget Randy California ( a name he got from his buddy Jimi) and then Robin Trower, Frank Marino, Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth, John Sykes, Joe Perry, Scott Gorham, Rory Gallagher!!! Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce both from Alice Coopers earlier works, Gary Moore, Wayne Kramer!!! Who isn't still loving Jeff Becks "Shapes of things"?? all 3 versions? Mick Ronson, he does a killer version of this on Bowies "Pin Ups"...remember Ariel Bender(Luther Grovsner III) from Spooky Tooth and Mott The Hoople. ever check out the awsome leads on Bowies "Live at the Towers Philidelphia" album with Earl Slick!?!?!?! simply awsome. Got to see "Junior Brown" in concert he was good with his 2 necked guitar/slide. I could go on and on, not enough room!....

Hey Ian, they've removed the audio portion of that article. But the good news is that you can watch 'ole Neil perform Le Noise-The Film for free on the Neil Young YouTube Channel HERE

It runs about 40 minutes and features some bitchin' guitars including a thumping great Gretsch and a sweet sounding Guild plus some bitchin' guitar playing to go with it! Ya gotta love this 'ole rocker, still goin' strong and always a bit surprising. I'm not sure I like everything on this album but there certainly are some gems. I think Neil found a few left over peyote buttons in the bottom of his guitar case and was chewin' on 'em while listening to the Sgt. Pepper album. Some very weird vibes going on at times.

Grogg - Oh yeah...That is one of the best "instructional" vids around. I like the tone he gets - hard to get any more relaxed before a camera, eh. Wisht I knew what he was pushing the signal through (rubbing my eyes a bit - is that a Traynor Amp he's got there?). "Don't be afraid to....."...WTH.. he does use his fingers and pick at the same bloody time. Lead and backing rhythm in one shot.

Barry - You know, the more I listen to N.Y.'s new stuff the more I like it. I enjoy its total weirdness, Young's aging falsetto, and that typically echo-laden production by Lanois is pretty close to sublime in spots... some fine music. Young played in our little town a couple of months ago and it was awesome.

Nasticanasta - Dang, that's a pile..of good guitarists! Robin Trower was completely underrated IMHO. I'll try to dig up some vids of those dudes.

Well, you put me on a roll for that Tejas blues stuff. Here's more classic Gibbons, and it always surprises me as to how much music three guys can generate:

Waiting for the Bus/Jesus just left Chicago (and he's bound for New Orleans) - sort of a crummy vid wrt quality, but you can sort of see why its cool:

And then a TOP quality vid of La Grange:

As an anonymous poster on youtube (is there any other kind?) said, "Makes me want to buy a motorcycle and go drink some Jack Daniels".

I wondered when Seasick Steve would be mentioned? And using guitars that most us would put the trash ! I agree John, excellent

Did you also see the Steve Miller band? My mate and his wife attend 3 or 4 concerts per month and travelled to the Albert Hall last week to see him. Verdict? Best concert ever!

I saw Seasick Steve on Top Gear (my favorite show) a while back - I wasn't familiar with him before.

A band I used to tour with opened for Steve Miller in the early 1990s a few times at big sheds and arenas. I was really surprised at what a killer show he put on. His stage was the first one I had ever seen that was completely void of speaker cabinets (no guitar amps or monitors visible) and microphone cables. There were monitors under the stage pointing up through grills. Everyone on the stage had wireless ear monitors and microphones. This is not uncommon now but was revolutionary 20 years ago.

He had a Clair Brothers system at the time and was using these little bitty trapezoids for a center fill cluster flown up high, and 3-4 of them laying on their sides pointing forward at downstage center. Their baffles are only 8-10" wide, so they were hard to see on the stage laying on their sides from the crowd's point of view. I got to go out front for part of his show, right at the stage in the center. This is normally a place where the sound isn't all that good. But it was the most in-your-face vocal mix I have ever heard. He sounded like a million bucks. Truly spectacular sound and performance. One of the Wooten brothers (I forget which) was playing keyboards for him which was cool because I knew Victor at the time.

Thanks Colt, very cool...Top Gear is entertaining - the best ever is episode is their 4x4 junket through a jungle and then over the South American Cordillera de los Andes.

+++++++++++

This thread is beggin' for Seasick Steve, so to accomodate I found a clip, thanks to Jools' Hootenanny:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNoPNC3ebYQ

Here he is again playing a custom axe. Very custom (and brilliant!). Laughing

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMf-em-56Mc

He mentions of his early transient life "Hobos are people who move around looking for work, tramps are people who move around but don't look for work, and bums are people who don't move and don't work. I've been all three."

Finally, "Hobo low":

Space Cowboy and Abracadabra have always been "signature" numbers for him, probably overshadowing all his other material. His current show is very much more bluesy and certainly well appreciated by my friends. Mind you they also like Leonard Cohen ... so, mmmm .... where's my razor blades.

So you saw Seasick on Top gear. We also have a TV programme called Top Gear, but its for petrol heads. I take it your TG is entirely different.

By the way Hoax, whats the story behind the Rammstein avatar? Another dimension to your musical talents? Just love Feuer Frei and Amerika ! How they avoid setting fire to all and sundry is beyond me. Might catch them when they're over next. As I remember. Satriani playing Birmingham soon.

Being Les Paul's godson didn't do Steve Miller any harm, eh!!? And remeber, Cohen wrote Hallelujah, probably THE panty wetting song of all time, and one of my all time favourites to perform....

Nope; same show. I saw that episode as well as the Seasick Steve one. I don't actually care for their "challenges"; I prefer it when they test supercars and trash them publicy - I've been a fan of JC since he was a snotty-nosed journalist and like his style.

I didn't know TG was exported but I'm not surprised. Considering JC derides most things American, I'd love know what our cousins across the pond think of their own, home built, automobiles. Didn't the TG team nearly come a cropper in New Orleans?

Anyway, back to music....

Now , your starter for 10. I have seen Santana play an SG, a L6S, a les Paul, and a PRS and yet he still has the same signature tone! Blindfold me and I couldn't tell you which guitar he was playing. So why change guitar?

That's easy, companies will be giving him one and possibly paying him as well for the prestige (same as they do with other top end players). (you forgot to mention that he played a Yamaha SG2000 at one point during the 70's as well)

It's true isn't it? I have always believed that a certain guitar "dictates" to me what to play. I may even play the same music but it will have a different feel to it depending on whether I have a solid body, semi-acoustic, long scale/short scale etc. What I play on the VS600 sounds dramatically different on the Danelectro or the TA60!

I think a strong individual player such as Santana to some extent reverses that dynamic, and he finds the sweet spot in the guitar he plays. However, I think even though the brand might change, you may find that he's playing the same basic configuration, therefore not a huge leap out of his comfort zone.

i always find that, while each guitar design has it's own personality........after a few minutes playing ANY guitar......it will eventually sound like ME, and that pronounced difference between, say, a strat and a paul will, mostly, be lost..........unless, THAT DIFF is what you're listening for................same for pedals and amps......4 moi! rabbit .................of course, all that there that i mentioned, is tempered by the limitations of the equipment available................and re: santana, don't forget that Yamaha (yomama?) SG he used to burn on :alien:

This isn't so hard really... I have been able to maintain my "sound" regardless of what guitar I'm playing for over 25 years...and I would have to add that the only differences would be sustain (neck through as opposed to bolt on and type of wood), and whether it's a tremolo or hardtail, it shouldn't matter what guitar you are playing, though some are faster due to the necks, but all the rest can be remedied especially now a days with all the options electronicly.

I met a guy in Cleveland Ohio at the House of Blues, turned out his father is best freinds with Franks father, so I have had the privledge to hang with Frank several times, and I can't tell you how many times I have heard him reply with the line "blues, I love the blues, it's all blues". He hotrods all his gear himself super nice guy and a great guitarist...here's a pic of me and Frank last time at HOB's:
