Depends on what type of guitarist you are looking for. On Slide/Blues Derek Trucks hands down. Theres a reason why Clapton wanted him on his tour so he could play his Derek era songs.

The edge! oh pleaseeeee. Take away his effects pedal board and then see what he can do. dave matthews or john mayer would blow him away. Hell charlie burchill of simple minds is twice the guitar player he is.

any grat guitarrist after 2000? in a band writing songs?

Re: best guitarist today
Date: September 13, 2006 10:47

Andy McCoy! both as a solo player, rhythm player and song writer. And the tone, which is unique. Lot's of crazy ideas too. For instance, a bozouki mixed with fuzz guitars etc.

I'm surprise noone menthions Robben Ford. Anyone else heard him? Too bluesish for you?

Re: best guitarist today
Date: September 13, 2006 10:52

He's good, but a bit too slick (his sound) for my taste. I have a couple of his records, but it's been years since I listened to them. Maybe I'll have to check them out again.

Jeff Beck is the governor. He's in his 60s now, but he's not a 60's hasbeen. Constantly heading forward. Always surprising. Always attacking.

Jeff Beck is good but he's some kind of weird f*ck up, always dropping out of tours, what's the deal with that?

MY PICKS:

PEARL JAM BOYS
EDGE
JACK WHITE
Guy who plays with ROGER WATERS on the Concert DVD from Portland, Oregon - In The Flesh is it? He's from Austin, Texas I think....

<Jeff Beck is the governor. He's in his 60s now, but he's not a 60's hasbeen. Constantly heading forward. Always surprising. Always attacking.>

IMO he's got an awful tone. He's so great technically, but his tone and sound doesn't do it for me...

Best I have seen recently is a Texan called Buddy Whittington who plays with the current John Mayalls Bluesbreakers lineup - easily as good as some of the classic names from the 60's in my opinion.

Andy

Technically, the best guitar player I've seen in my life is Warren Heynes.
But the best "rock n' roll" guitar is Keith Richards. In fact he's the Rock n'Roll.

What tours has he dropped out of?

I've seen him on several tours - never a problem. Never known that canceling tours/shows was an issue.

Saw him a couple of nights ago at a FL gig. He was doing his thing and he still does it better tham most. Very talented. Can solo over anything.
