List of your Top 5 guitarists.

So just out of curiosity id like to see people list off there top 5 guitarists. Ill start


1. Steve Albini-Big Black, Shellac
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIn8e8-kXQ4


2. St. Vincent-St. Vincent
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAdARF4rGcQ


3.Lydia Lunch- Teenage Jesus and the Jerks
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9CpA5-CG7g


4.Bob Mould- Husker Du
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTaiiMAzKa8&ab


5. Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo- Sonic Youth
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gV_vxvU3Udk


I don't get what the deal is with Thurston moore and lee renaldo. I've heard sonic youth and I own daydream nation. As far as guitar work, their sounds just kind of blend together and are either drowned in feedback or kind of understated. I guess it has to do more with giving their sound an atmospheric feel or something> Maybe you could explain why you like them. Also, since you put up bob mould, a punk rock guitarist, I just feel like asking if you know who Andy Gill is? If not, perhaps check my post of my top guitarists if you feel like it

As a very serious guitarist / multi-instrumentalist & songwriter / musician myself, I tend to favor creativity over technical prowess, though it is a beautiful thing when the two meet. In no particular order, with the exception of my number one (Robert Fripp), here are five guitarists I deeply admire:

Robert Fripp (King Crimson, Solo material, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel, League of Gentlemen & many, many more)


Adrian Belew (King Crimson, Solo material, Talking Heads, Frank Zappa, The Bears)


Michael Karoli (Can)


Frank Zappa (Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz)


Scotty Anderson (Solo Artist)

Scotty Anderson is definitely the dark horse of the lot. I can say with almost 100% certainty you have never heard of him, but on a technical level, pound for pound he is, in my opinion, the best guitarist on the planet alive today. He plays an interesting blend of jazz &... I almost don't want to say it, because it might instantly turn some people off, but jazz & country. I absolutely despise country music, but this is far from what one would typically think of when they hear the word ''country'', plus it's entirely instrumental. Check out his song ''Artistry in Rhythm''. Make sure to put a pillow underneath your mouth area, because when your jaw drops, it's going to drop fast, and hard.

I'd like to give an honorable mention to Cacophony (Jason Becker & Marty Friedman), because, c'mon, LOOK AT THAT HAIR.

Plus, it's devastatingly heartbreaking what happened to Jason Becker : (. He was only SEVENTEEN when he recorded Speed Metal Symphony ... Seven-f*cking-teen ... What an amazing talent cut short by a vicious, malevolent disease.

Not sure if I have a top 5, but I'll give a shout-out to Plini, who is pretty much the only instrumental guitarist I listen to regularly:

Hendrix is cool, but he gets enough props from people already. I think there are tons of guitarists that are extremely underrated. If you like Hendrix, you should listen to someone like Stevie Ray Vaughn or Mato Nanji from a band called indigenous. And if you enjoy Hendrix, have you ever explored any Led Zeppelin, jeff beck, or the who. They are all pretty cool.

props for bringing up Adrien Belew. I think he is extremely underrated. His work with King Crimson is fantastic. That picture of Robert Fripp kind of makes him look like Jeff Lynne from ELO

Cheers! I', a huge Adrian Belew fan! I own a few of his solo albums, they're real growers. i didn't like them as much at first (like a fool, I was expecting King Crimson II), but Adrian has an absolutely unique style & sound completely his own. Hah, I agree with the Fripp/Lynne comparison. I didn't see it before, but it's all that I can see when I look at it now. It's okay, I guess, since I am a huge ELO fan, particularly when they had Roy Wood & their band The Move.

adrien belew was the best part of the talking heads album remain in light, an album that I really didn't like that much except for the parts where Adrien Belew was obviously playing. Do you know the story of how David Bowie stole Adrien Belew from Frank Zappa?

Thanks for the recommendations man. I listen to 95% Hip Hop haha so that's why I don't really know guitarists.

a good combination between hip-hop, rap and rock is a band called rage against the machine whose guitarist tom morello is pretty cool. Also, check out the beasty boys if you haven't
