Re: WHO is the GREATEST GUITAR PLAYER in the WORLD TODAY?
The problem with the younger generation of guitarists (ie. many of the metalheads) is that they think speed and difficulty is everything. It's all flash. Where's the innovation???

I fucking love metal but Randy Rhodes and Dimebag Darrel were the last of a dying breed. Everyone else seems to just see guitar like their ability to play means they deserve more recognition. After a few solos, everything starts to sound the same. There's rarely anything recognizable enough to distinguish one shredder from another. Music is about delivery, not showing off.

I tried to pick a #1 (living) guitarist, but everything I rationalized always came out to personal favorites. I want to say James Hetfield (obviously, not for playing ability) because of his influence on the last couple decades of metal, but at the same time, Van Halen, Page and Clapton are still alive and rank highly by the same standard.

Steve Vai is the world's best and most influential modern rock guitarist, he rewrote the book about 30 years ago, everyone's been emulating him ever since. This tune made a lot of cats give up the guitar, made a lot of cats pick it up.

Guitar is the alien instrument of choice.
Almost all players mentioned here are lame earthlings.

The most versatile alien player on this poor planet is

Joe "SATCH" Satriani.

No doubt about it. Nobody could play what he does.
One of his pupils though got close

There are a lot of different styles of guitar, but all around most talented guitar player alive is Derek Trucks hands down.

I saw him play live with Eric Clapton, Eric couldn't keep the grin off his face when Derek busted out his solo. I don't know many that can hold a flame to him that aren't already dead.

"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."
