All about tastes...I believe Clapton to be the best.

Slash and Angus Young ain't three bad either.

Iv'e played guitar for over 40 years, and the most difficult style to play, is Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits fame, also the late Rick Parfitt of Status Quo, using a 14-56 gauge of strings playing how he did, is feckin almost unimaginable.

I love Slash, and his style, tho not particularly hard to play, same as Clapton, and Angus Young, fairly simple stuff for a half decent guitarist, Pete Townsends stuff is harder to play, as is Brian May. That Mark feckin Knopfler tho, very difficult. John Fogerty also throws a few tricky little bits in his stuff.

All truly great musicians which i greatly admire, tho sadly for us, as each one passes, they seem to get replaced by some SAW, type electronic crap sounding thing.

I think we are all overlooking a certain Mr Hendrix and Chuck Berry.

Not at all on my part anyway Locke.....both great guitarists but not, imo, in Gallagher's class. All about opinions and how the individual relates to each. Btw....the other week by chance I came upon a youtube video of Stevie Ray Vaughn playing Voodoo Child....far superior to Hendrix.
