    Haven’t really listened to much else. Not that into guitary stuff but thought he’d be worth a mention.

    Rick McCollum’s stuff on The Afghan Whigs’ “Gentlemen” LP is beautiful and painful enough for any other five guitarists.

    Lots of stunt guitarists as to be expected, great to see Nile Rogers recognised. James Dean Bradfield and Jonny Marr.

    I’ve got a couple to add Brian Setzer, George Thorogood.

    I’m not immediately sure beyond that, maybe Gordon Giltrap, Ben Harper and/or Chris Rea. At some point it becomes hard to separate the guitars from the whole sound of the band they’re in. E.g. I’m a Pearl Jam fan and Mike McCready is a very good guitar player but it’s Pearl Jam as a whole I’m a fan of, I’m not passionate about McCready’s playing in particular.

    Tommy Emmanuel who manages to sound like an orchestra with just one guitar.

    Most bands need two guitarists though so I’ll suggest these:

    Andy Irvine (with just five strings) and Christie Moore
    Jean-Jacques Goldman and Michael Jones
    Louis Bertignac and Jean-Louis Aubert
    Lindsey Buckingham and John McVie (with just four strings)

    So many other greats that others have mentioned but Junior Kimborough, Dan Auerbach and Nile Rodgers are so, so good!

    I prefer originality, and the sort of distinctive style that tells you who it is within the first four or five notes. Fret wankery is all well and good, but it gets pretty tiresome after a while.
    Neil Young and Mark Knopfler get honourable mentions, too.
