I think everyone will agree that the guitar is an essential rock music instrument. The history of rock and the guitar - its sound, technique, musical harmonic and rhythmic complexity etc. are so closely interconnected that I think it's difficult to think about the one without the other. Name up to 5 (ok, max. 10 if it's not enough) guitar players who in your opinion are the most historically important figures of all time. Let's take into account the rock/blues/jazz-rock world 'cause 'pure-mainstream' jazz or classical guitar playing are IMO another story. I will be tempted (if this thread is succesful enough) to count the votes (1st place - 10 points, 2nd - 9, etc) in a couple of weeks or months time to announce officially who's the most important guitarist of all time according to CA community. And what players' names follow The King. This is what's it all about My candidates: 1. Jimi Hendrix 2. Robert Johnson 3. Jimmy Page 4. Stevie Ray Vaughan 5. Steve Vai A honorable mention - Lightnin' Hopkins - IMO the most underrated bluesman of all time and a fantastic classic blues guitar player.
