    Have just been listening to the beautiful 'Tunnel of Love' by Dire Straits. Mark Knopfler is brilliant, in my humble opinion.
    Who's your favourite guitarist?

    Mr James Marshall Hendrix gets my vote

    Carlos Santana gives a good account of himself.

    ..and I'm not sure Morrissey would have been quite so successful without Johnny Marr

  9. Johnny Marr and Frank Zappa
     
  10. Jimmy Page
    Eric Clapton
    Duane Allman
    Richard Thompson
    Robbie Robertson

    ....and a fair few others I can think of.
     
  11. To add to an already fantastic list:
    Django Rheinhardt
    George Benson
    Gary Potter
     
  12. +1 to kibosh for John Martyn and Neil Young - two of my favourites.

    Marc Ribot, who's done a lot of work with Tom Waits is incredible.

    Also, Keith Richards is completely brilliant.

    Not disagreeing with any choice so far- but no-one's mentioned Dave Gilmour! (Pink Floyd) Couldn't leave him out of this list.

    Prince is rather underrated as a guitarist
