    Sekhmet [79965]

    Angus Young, Robin Trower, Micheal Schenker. There are just too many mighty axe wielders to name just one as the best.

    This is the correct take.  There's just too many genres and rabbit holes to go down to crown anyone the best.

    Intricate [1957884]

    Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Page, Tom Scholz, and Dimebag Darrell are hard to single out as a best.  

    Rest, in no particular order..

     Neil Young, Steve Gaines and Rickey Medlocke, Ted Nugent, Dave Hlubek (Molly Hatchet). 

    I thought we made it to page 5 without Mr Feedback, but I was wrong ^^^^

    So here's a half hour plus of raw fuzz.

    Cortez the Killer - Neil Young

    Down By the River - Neil Young

    Billy Sheehan...best bass guitarist ever...hands down. Watch it all...it's like lead and bass mixed.

    No wonder almost every great band begs his services...and they do ;)

    Billy Sheehan and Nikki Sixx on the couch the talking genious guitar stuff. 14 minutes...but worth it while you E and Crime bar replenish ;)

    Nothing new here, but was 'in the mood'

    Harder to find vids of Jimi than SRV, and imo Stevie took it to another stratus.

    Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)

    Never saw that version...was simply orgasmic!!

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=grBmQwLSlDw

    This " sound check...what? " video is 18 minutes...but also SRV golden ;)

    Also...Eddie Van Halen guitar solo 2015 at the Hollywood  Bowl .

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YbsYc3UNdZ4

    Glad to see Eddie still has it...he revolutionized that guitar style ...but I still picture him in my mind as that cute lil' guy in love with Valeri Bertinelli...and seeing him with all that grey hair makes me me feel older lol ;)

    Quite a few VH etchings scratched into my school desk tops in 8-9th grade.

    SRV was sober by '85 in the one I linked, seemed a bit more connected to the rest of the band than others I've watched. 

    Here's older brother Jimmie Vaughan.  Very clean production on this release, and he's got a much smoother voice.

    Jimi Hendrix hands down. 

    Id say these three works best showcase his consistent, fantastic talent on the electric

    New tribute to UK Blues to be released.

    I have 2 chances to see live in May, both at Saenger Theaters. Pensacola and NOLA.

    I'll swing back and link a really good set from Royal Albert that I enjoyed.

    Jeff Beck.

    I'm a guitarist and grew up idolizing  Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai.  All ****ing superb players but after revisiting Jeff after all these years he's still the king.

    I can't find a favourite song so this link is to a full live concert which is completely mind-blowing.  He plays without a plectrum and sometimes slide guitar.  Incredible touch, technique, tone, skill and feeling.  This guy kicks everybody's ass :)

    I got RAH and Vienna mixed up. Prefer the acoustic set from Vienna. I must have seen it on Audience network as I couldn't find a link to the full show, but here's one song at least.

    Woke Up Dreaming

    Hadn't caught up to the Beth Hart sets yet, but listening now.

    I'd Rather Go Blind

    Love Etta James!
