The best guitarist who is it This is an argument that has been amongst many musicians for many years But who is the hands down best guitarist From my viewpoint the answer is obvious Joe Satriani without a doubt is the best guitarist alive today and perhaps the best guitarist ever I can already hear the responses from the crowd What about Jimi Hendrix Eric Clapton Jimmy Page Eddie Van Halen or perhaps Steve Vai and Eric Johnson All of these players are good guitarists but they are not the best Compare each guitar player to Joe Satriani and you will clearly see who is the bestFirst off one of the biggest misconceptions among guitarists is that Jimi Hendrix is the best guitarist to ever live Granted he is good but without a doubt he is not the best Lets face the facts Jimi Hendrix is a legend because of his untimely death The performance he is most remembered for is the playing of the Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock Was this performance technically hard Not at all the Star Spangled Banner is one of the easiest songs for a musician to play What Jimi Hendrix is most remembered for was his experimentation with sound effects and being one of the forerunners of the rock guitar The thing is Jimi Hendrix was mainly a one-dimensional guitarist and he knew few other styles besides rock Satriani on the other hand is known for his versatility Besides his hard pounding riffs he is also known for his knowledge of jazz In 1974 he studied with two modern jazz masters Billy Bauer and Lennie Tristano Also Hendrix cannot match Satrianis finger speed and the clarity of the tones he plays on his guitar Hendrix will always be a classic guitar player and he is known for being one of thee best but he lacks the skills to be considered better than SatrianiAnother guitarist who many people consider
