All those country/western local groups that come down to the tv station for a live broadcast Saturday night. They can't all read music, but they're ALL incredible!

I'm still "Stealin' from Chet" and trying to make it sound recognizable.....

 

I like the genius that plays on "Prarie Home Companion"--- his name slipped my mind right now--- I would like to get my fingers to do that well -----

in my next life????

 

 

 

I went to the PHC web site--- Pat donohue is an excellent gituarist. You can listen to clips on the Prairie Home companion web site--- its a dot org

Here is my list:

 

1. Rhandy Rhoads

2. Joe Perry

3. Kirk Hammett

4. Marty Friedman

5. Zakk Wylde

6. Slash

7. Ace Frehley

8. Dave Mustaine

9. Kerry King

10. Kurt Cobain

 

and while were talking about people who play stringed instruments..some of my choices for top bass players would be

 

1. Cliff Burton

2. Flea

3. Gene Simmons

and we cant forget Twiggy Ramirez :)

 

Its weird that nobody mentioned Joe Perry in any of their lists. He has got to be one of the top 10 guitarists out there. After I saw him play some solos with the guitar behind his head I knew he was one of the greatest :P

A pretty good list, minus Kerry King and Cobain in my opinion. I think Hanneman is a much better guitarist then King and I would take Kim Thayil over Cobain but whatever floats your boat ;)

 

For bassists I would have to go:

 

1. Cliff Burton (RIP buddy) - Metallica

2. Geddy Lee - Rush

3. John Paul Jones - Led Zeppelin

4. John Entwistle - The Who

5. Robert Trujillo - Pretty well everyone but lets say Metallica

6. Jeff Ament - Pearl Jam

7. Steve Harris - Iron Maiden

 

By the way I have seen three of the guitarists on your list; Perry, Hammett and Dave Mustaine.
