I agree with everything said so far. While he has his own unique style, David Gilmour is worth a mention.

And as far as bass players go, Geddy Lee should be on there too.

Interesting and challenging topic.

As others have observed, the hard part is narrowing it down to five. Anybody can make great speakers for $20,000, right? So all you "five more" guys are a bunch of cheaters.

The spirit of the original question included not only "top" but also "ability", "fun" and - most importantly - "favorite". So, we're not really looking for "most influential" here.

It's freaky how we're all stuck in roughly the same period.

Speakergrrl?

Eric Clapton
Wes Montgomery
Django Reinhardt
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Carlos Santana

Great listings, everyone. Your comments certainly motivated me to revisit some tunes I haven't heard in a while.

Off the top of my head, based on influence to other generations:

Eric Clapton
Jimmy Page
Jimi Hendrix
Eddie Van Halen
Tony Iommi

Newer guitarists who do not yet have the longevity/career, but may make the list in time:

Jack White
Derek Trucks

Tom,

Thanks for mentioning Django Reinhardt. He certainly had talent. I'll go listen to some Gypsy Jazz right now.

Thanks John for the knod for Geddy. Good list!

Nachos, another new artist to suggest is John Mayer.

Les Claypool doesn't make the bass players list?
