Your top 5 guitar gods?
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.Posted 4 years agoEdukatorMember
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 MoorePosted 4 years ago
Jean-Jacques Goldman and Michael Jones
Louis Bertignac and Jean-Louis Aubert
Lindsey Buckingham and John McVie (with just four strings)CountZeroMember

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.
