I'm to lazy to list right now, but I'd like to add Dr. Know, Robbie Krieger, Carlos Santana, Frank Zappa, Joey Santiago, and Pete Townshend.


Edit: Ok so I just noticed that most of these were already on atari's list......he obviously has amazing tastes.

I've got a ticket to see David Gilmour this Thursday, but I'm thinking of ditching it - it's in a crap venue (Rosemont in Chicago), and I hear on this leg of his U.S. tour thus far he's been a disappointment I can't say I'm all that fond of 'On An Island,' but I was hoping he wouldn't play exclusively off that album. I'm more inclined not to go, so that my pristine image of him isn't tainted.

Anybody want to buy my ticket? haha

Exhaustive lists all. I've seen one mention of Haino, which is correct.

Anyone mentioned Keith Rowe yet? I really like Otomo Yoshihide... he's a subtle and simple one.

I think for technical ability we cannot dismiss Yngwie Malmsteen. I actually really enjoy the sheer monomaniacal monstrosity of his playing, but it is ultimately complete gack.

I rarely tire of saying Bailey is one of the better guitarists who you wouldn't necessarily notice has incredible technical ability.

The chaps out of My Cat is an Alien do some wonderful things.

Masayuki Takayanagi (sp?).

His student Kasuo Imai (sp?), who I had the pleasure of seeing last year.

For pugilistic intent, Sunn o)))'s guitarists are great.

For comedy metal solos, Dragon Force.

For writing whole albums on one open tuning, Jandek.

Haino's ok, mostly driven by his own poetry. I wouldn't say he's "great" or anything on guitar though.


No mention of KK NULL?

Has anyone mentioned Preston Reed yet?

Christ that man can play, seen him twice & he's flattened me both times, what with the whole melody/couner-melody/percussion at the same time on the same guitar thing. Great understanding of melody & harmony too.

I'm not a fan of technical ability muso masterbation... for me the most important thing is feel and originality.

Dean Roberts
Elisa Ambrogio
the Dead C guys
Christina Carter
Derek Bailey
Viv Albertine

I love seeing women play guitar... not enough of them do in my opinion, they are way more interesting than men as far as playing and performance are concerned.
I'm really bored with seeing male guitarists trying too hard to emulate their idols.

I like seeing women play guitar too, but I would rather watch the girl from Boris any day over Christina or Elisa. She is more of a "guitarist," rather than someone holding a guitar as a means to an end.
