Of these guys, SRV. He was just like Hendrix in many ways but with insane precision and clarity.
Little bit of this
and a little bit of that, also Mark Knopfler and Mr. B.B. King are missing from this list IMO
Joe Bonamassa, Albert King, Freddie King, Jimmy Paige, Tom Morello.
JOHNNY RAMONE (for his apocalyptic down strum speed)
Jimi Hendrix is the best by far from the poll. Eric Clapton is good and SRV and Slash are mediocre guitarists.
Interesting opinion. I don't think Slash is revolutionary but Stevie Ray Vaughn mediocre? That's a hard one to wrap my head around.
I think It's a tie between Eric Clapton & Jimi Hendrix. Both were really experimental & created badass riffs. For Clapton riffs listen to ''Sunshine of your love'' & for Hendrix riffs listen to ''All along the watchtower''
I find Stevie Ray overrated. Slash is one of my favorite guitarists of all time because I love his blues sound & he created one of the most iconic guitar solo's ever.
1. Eric Clapton & Jimi Hendrix TIE
3. Stevie Ray
I know Hendrix wrote some great music, but basically anyone who has played guitar for a while can play a Hendrix song with only a little difficulty. It's not going to sounds as good as him, but you can play the bare bones of it.
Clapton's subtle stuff he does puts him at the top. It's kind of like Hendrix, that some people can play his songs, but no one can make it sound like Clapton except for Clapton. Clapton was just a lot better at it.
Vaughn gets number 2 since he can play a song for 10 minutes without words and make it not get old. His non-staged stuff is just incredible, and he makes it look easy.
Slash is good for what he is.
