This top ten list of the Greatest Guitarists of all time comes from The Rolling Stone magazine. The interesting thing about this top ten list is, the majority of the guitar greats, are blues guitarists.


Jimi Hendrix, Valleys of Neptune

Here is the top ten list of the Greatest Guitarists of all time.


  1. Jimi Hendrix
  2. Duane Allman
  3. B.B. King
  4. Eric Clapton
  5. Robert Johnson
  6. Chuck Berry
  7. Stevie Ray Vaughan
  8. Ry Cooder
  9. Jimmy Page
  10. Keith Richards

Jimi Hendrix we all know is the greatest guitarist of all time. Hendrix had just recently broke a new record, for the only artist to be in the top five, with a new release decades  years) his death. Only Elvis Presley comes close with a top five release twenty six years after his death.


Front Stage had made a post about Jimi Hendrix’s “Valleys of Neptune” that post is here (Jimi Hendrix: 2010 Valleys of Neptune) Where Front Stage mentioned it would be an historic and amazing release for 2010. This was in January.


The top ten list of guitarists are truly deserving of their ranks., we will go more into details on another post of each guitarist.


In our previous post on Stevie Ray Vaughan, which is here (Blues Guitar Lesson from Stevie Ray Vaughan). You can see the sheer perfection, and confidence he displays and has in his playing. On the video guitar lesson, Stevie is playing his award winning instrumental “Rude Mood”.


So for the top ten guitarists of all time, it is clear to see that three of these guitarists are true Blues guitar players, the next four are mixed Blues and rock guitarists, but all guitarists are Blues based guitar players.
