The best guitarist
18 Dec 06
I think there's no the greatest guitarist ever. because every guitarist has their own styles, techniques and skills. a guitarist would be called the greatest if he/she could play every kinds of music. I doubt if Satriani could play as much as it. Does he can play middle east or asian music? or african music? :) the great guitarists such as Satriani, Vai, Gilbert, Eddie VH, Malmsteen, etc has their own best talent and techniques on their genres :) so, that's what I think :D

To me the best guitarist is an Australian guy called Warren Keats, when he plays he has people standing around gobsmacked, he can play just about any instrument going but he is a master on the guitar... One musician who always wanted to play a certain very difficult piece of music but couldn't and couldn't ever get anyone else to do it quite right either until he came across Warren Keats, within 30mins he had it perfect....he is amazing.....

No. Be the "greatest guitarist" requires a lot of qualities. Satriani don´t have tecniques like legatto, tapping, two hands, sweep picking, arpegios, sweep tapping, alternate picking as many other guitarists, like Steve vai, paul gilbert, john petrucci, michael romeo, etc. This is one techinical analisys, so, for me, steve vai is the greatest guitarist, because he know "all the techs" and apply in his music and style.

joe satriani??? nope. I don't think so dude. I have browsed onto a site but I can't remember its address. it says there that the greatest, best and outstanding guitarist in the world is no other than Michael Angelo Batio. do you know him? well........ he only uses a one of a kind dean markley double-x guitar. he plays right/ left handedly. and ont the rankings, yngwie malmsteen was only third place because on the 2nd ranking, The Cat was the name of the guitarist.....take note!!- she is dressed like CATWOMAN!! and about John Petrucci.... he was only on the 6th place. I browsed Joe satriani there and found out that he was on the 12th rank.
