Default Guitar World's 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time

http://www.guitarworld.com/readers-p...-time#slide-90

What a long, strange trip it's been.

Back in early April, we set out to determine your choice for the greatest guitarist of all time. A bracket was made, players were ranked a few were voted in and we kicked off our Greatest Guitarist of All Time readers poll. It was a mammoth 132-guitarist tournament that would span nearly six months and log close to a half-million votes when all was said and done.

Was it a perfect, scientific process? No. We had a couple of extra matchups, some bizarre pairings and the occasional omission. But overall, Guitar World's first-ever Greatest Guitarist of All Time Readers Poll was a fun, engaging way to get you all talking, sharing opinions and maybe even checking out some guitarists you weren't all that familiar with.

When the dust settled, Eddie Van Halen stood alone as the victor, defeating Queen's Brian May in a wild finals matchup that saw fans clubs, forums and Facebook pages getting involved to support their respective candidates.

Both guitarists had tough paths to the finals, between them knocking off Jeff Beck, Slash, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani, Jimmy Page, Randy Rhoads and a host of others.

While it's clear who No. 1 and No. 2 are, we wanted to see how poll results stacked up on a grander scale, so we've compiled a list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, as voted by you, the Guitar World readers. Check it out below!
The Rankings

How did we determine a Top 100 ranking for a tournament-style poll?

Simple. We ranked the guitarists by round first the two guitarists from the finals, then the remaining two from the final four, and so on and then within their respective rounds by their overall vote count. Dimebag Darrell, for instance, is No. 9 because he received the most votes of any guitarist that didn't make it to the Elite Eight.

2. Randy Rhoads












Everyone else. Slash gets points for swag though

Meh...it's better than Rolling Stones atrocious list I guess.

It's invalidated by Marty Friedman's absence though. But at least Kurt Cobain isn't on there.

And it has Dimebag at #9

Which is f'n fantastic if you ask me. No other Heavy Metalers in the Top 10.



And is it me, or is Tremonti way too high?? I don't think he should even be on there.

Pete Townshend is in NYC promoting his book. He said that he saw Hendrix's first 25 concerts in England. During one one of them, he was holding Eric Clapton's hand, presumably in awe.

He also said his how great he was on stage was never truly captured on his studio albums.

Terrible list. It's good seeing some of those names, but this is basically a Rock list with a few blues guys sprinkled in (in the later half of the 100 might I add.)

hes right. Check out any of the live recordings of him (my favorite is the NYE band of gypsies album) and it blows away his studio work. This list is of course horse shit. Its incredibly biased towards hard rock (duh, its GW magazine. Guitar Player was always a much better spectrum) and not really based on technical skill or any other measurable attributes. Brian May shouldnt even be in the top 25 of an all time guitar list.

scrolling through it, wes montgomery is 100? and both young brothers from ACDC are on the list? James hetfield is in the top 25 or so? WTF is wrong with you people?

Hetfield is arguably the greatest rhythm guitarist of all time. He usually doesn't get any love on these lists, so it was a pleasant surprise.

Dave Mustaine ahead of him and Hammet is quite comical, but it's the truth.


I'm glad to see Chris Broderick make the list as well.

I hate lists like that. Music ain't about competition man, music is about love and peace and sadness. Plus lists like that are just popularity contests, no Dave Navarro SMH.

Surprising to see Malcolm Young make it. He's usually not even an afterthought on these things. Soul Stripper was pretty much his brightest moment though.
