I could go on and on too hard to narrow it down. My top 20 are interchangeable depending on my mood
It’s hard to pick just 5 but I’d have to include the guitarists that have influenced my playing the most.
Hank B Marvin
Can I please also give honourable mention to both George Harrison and Joe Walsh too?
Murray/Smith (together as one)
I dont understand how people can pick hendrix clapton page beck gilmour till the end of time.
shout out to all who picked akins and django. the two mountains
Nice to see someone else mention Toy !
Trower - check
Atkins - check
Steve Howe - maybe, so long as he doesn't sing.
Jimi - points for style certainly.
Roy Clark - honorable mention
EVH .. if Steve Howe opens his mouth ...
In no particular order:
Annie Clarke (St. Vincent)
Keith Cross (T2)
Jimi Hendrix (of course)
I have just two:
1) STANLEY JORDAN
Seriously. Look at what all the new generation of players are in to: two-handed playing. And everybody is acting like they're the front runners. Stanley Jordan has been playing like that since the late 70's. It just freaked people out too much to accept it as normal back then, so he was always viewed as a side-show novelty act. Now he looks like a genius and everybody is copy-catting, just like what happened to EVH.
2) ERIC ROCHE
He's another guy where these days his unique playing style is being regurgitated as the "next thing" in acoustic guitar, and hipsters are posting their videos on YouTube with people fawning over their virtuosity. Sorry, Eric Roche was doing that stuff before you were born, dude.
Honorable mention: DICK DALE
Sorry metal heads, but if it wasn't for Dick Dale, you wouldn't have a platform for very loud, fast playing. He literally invented it.
1)Maybelle Carter, perhaps the most influential picker of all time.
2)Lightening Hopkins. So real!
3)B.B.King. Awesome touch.
4)Speedy West. He could make steel sing.
It's tough to limit it it to 5. This article nails it at 12.
Just as I was thinking that these pages are filled with the same old obvious names (not being snarky, my list would include the same old obvious names too), you give us 4 guys I have not heard of. Now I have to do some googling.
Is Carlos Segovia related to Andres Segovia?
I always liked Jimmy Paige, but I slightly prefer Jimmy Page.
Carlos Santana (Steve Vai, Joe Satriani)
In no order, just 5 I enjoy listening to
Fast Eddie Clarke
All very talented in their chosen genre.
