I know what your saying "Crap not another top 10 guitarist list" and I get it. There are pretty much meaningless as they are all a matter of personal opinion. Mine is no different. Over the next few days/weeks/months/years I will post my top 10 in several categories and my overall favorite top 10. I do want to be clear, this list is my list of FAVORITES which may differ from who I think are the best guitarists. Who am I to say who is actually better than the next guy. Then again who CAN really say if Jimi Hendrix was actually a better guitarist than Eddie Van Halen or Eric Clapton? There are very few if any that can. These lists are always more opinion than fact. Having said that I welcome your comments/praise/criticism/suggestions for my list, but, remember these are based on MY opinion and therefore cannot be wrong. I may forget someone off a list and if so I will be more than willing to adjust it.
I plan on listing top 10 in the following categories (in no particular order): Classic Rock (1970's and earlier), Rock, "Hair" Metal, Heavy Metal, Shred, Blues, Flamenco, Jazz, Classical, & Overall.
* I reserve the right to add additional categories at a later time.
The first entry is for my top 10 favorite Classic Rock guitarists (read more)
