and i can't believe he hasn't been mentioned yet but i think his playing has improved over time when other rock guitar gods have plateaued-and that is jeff beck. pete townshend was my fave growing up but jeff beck has gotten better with time.

The man who changed how a guitar is played forever. :)

And, at near 60 now and clean and sober, I can say the man still plays like no other. EVH is EVH. Sure, some can play his songs, but no one gets his sound. Though his early years were the best by far, their new songs shows he still has it!

Brad Paisley is up there on my list. The guy can play anything from the twangiest country to smooth jazz, blues, rock, you name it he makes his telecaster sound great! Not afraid to cross musical borders.

Ted Nugent. Maybe not the greatest, but I like his simple style and his raw blues background. But he should stick to the byrdland, his tone requires that guitar, and peavy amps.

Tommy Emmanuel. Never heard of him? you should :) Makes an accoustic sing :)

I know I'm responding to a 2 yr old comment, but since this thread is back - Mark Knophfler plays with equal ease & cool. A great live example

Ollie Halsall.

If you haven't heard of him, give a listen to him playing live in the studio---in 1972!---in this song. The guitar solos in the song are a little wild, even for him, but you can hear where Eddie Van Halen got his inspiration. (If you've heard any Rutles songs, you've heard him: Ollie H recorded all the guitar and bass parts on the Rutles songs and sang the vocals that Eric Idle mimes.)
