Top 10 Guitarists Of All Time?


The folks over at Best Colleges Online have compiled a list of the top 10 guitarists of all time. As they say in their own words, this is no easy task...
"Compiling a list of the 10 greatest guitarists is a near-impossible task. Through the last half-century, dozens of these talented musicians have catapulted their bands and musical careers to new heights, captivating the world with their unique sounds. Any of the guys listed below serve as role models to future generation of guitarists."

I'm not going to reveal their top 10 here, you'll have to read the post for that. All I'll say is that you will enjoy the videos of each of the chosen guitarists playing.

Of course, there's a good chance you'll find that your favourite guitarist has been left out of the list, and maybe you'd rather leave out someone who has been included. But that's part of the fun of top 10 lists, so why not chip in by clicking the comment link below to have your say on the top 10 guitarists...

Thanks for the list. I love "top guitarist lists," although this one seems to be 75% Most Recognizable Guitarists and 25% Most Notable Name Dropping. A really interesting one I think was the LA Times 50 Greatest Guitarists (in alpha order). Cheers!
