Re: WHO is the GREATEST GUITAR PLAYER in the WORLD TODAY?
its the SONG not the proficiency with chords and speed, or...all musicians worship good songwritiing,
This "best guitarist" thing is so ridiculuous anyone who adds to the argument in such a way has no clue....its a feeling not some aural masturbation
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5913880



Proficiency is important. It doesn't mean that you have to bust out every technical trick in every song, but you know you can. There is nothing wrong mastering your instrument. But you are right - playing with feel is the most important. I'm just not into the guy who can only play 3 chords going "but at least I play with feel..." and using it as a cop-out because he never learned to play with any proficiency. Or the cat who says "guitar solos are overrated" because he can't actually play one.

There are as many greatest guitar player ever as different styles of music, and even in the same style of music 2 guitarist can be the greatest for different reason.

 Quoting: Person445


There's more passion and music here than anyone else so far on this board. Most guitar players here, yeah they are good and all, but they are stuffed with effects boards running easy scales, and so forth. Hey David Gilmour he's superb as well doing the same kind of thing. The guy on the twelve string is really playing drones on his alternate turning, with a few fast scales and percussion on the guitar itself. That's very clever.

Hey but who's the best anyway? The one that pleases you the most is it. For me passion with the instrument floats the boat.

"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

There is solid argument for someone who actually is the best in the world. Andy Aledort from Guitar magazine has transcribed thousands of songs and knows every nuance of them. He is a remarkable player in his own right as well. He has taught more players than anyone in the world.

My two exes, they are like a combo of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, and the guitarist from Black Sabbath - both losers, tho, sad - both got really good offers to play in professional bands in the past - couldn't keep their crap together - the usual suspects. But wow, are they ever impressive. One writes tablature for music by ear. I've always loved some serious electric guitar - I wish a lot of music would just ditch the words and let me enjoy the instrumentals alone.

Monte Montgomery ruled Austin Texas wi a banged up acoustic guitar.....no backing from the Jews who run music....so only Austin knows about Monte's unique style-sound.

Nobody can, has, or will successfully copy Monte's style.

Live shows in the 90's....we're Monte's best moment in time when he was not burned out.
