re: Best guitarist to ever walk this earth?
If you don't mind me asking and I'm not being a a-hole but what is the difference between an originator and a mechanical perfectionist?

re: Best guitarist to ever walk this earth?
Pretty broad question. Segovia could play things Hendrix would have dreamed to play, and Hendrix did things with the instrument no one had imagined. Wes Montgomery was an absolute genius. Garcia was so unique and versatile. Not to mention the old Blues guys like RJ, Lightnin', etc. that were bad MFs. Stanley Jordan, he's pretty incredible. The answer is probably some dude no one has heard of. I've seen guys busking that have blown my mind.

If I named my top 3 99% of the board would have never have heard of them, they are mostly studio guys and can play anything that Page, SRV, Atkins, Emmanual, Clapton, you fill in the blank, can play, and many of them were the originators of instantly recognizable riffs heard in popular music.

I think it is between Duane Allman and Jimi Hendrix, FWIW.

Theres a very good chance thats its someone that no one has ever heard of. And thats wayyyyyy too broad of a question. Do you mean physically playing the instrument? If so, then Hendrix and Page arent even in the top 10,000 greatest guitarist ever. Songwriting ability? Tone? Aggression? Originality? Music theory? Mark on music history? Influential?
