Moved out of the "So what are you listening to at the moment" thread, the question was asked who are your top 10 guitarists? As per the title, no specific criteria, it's your top 10. So, to kick it off...

Duane Allman
Chet Atkins
Joe Bonamassa
Tommy Emmanuel
B.B. King
Mark Knopfler
Gary Moore
Richie Sambora
Kenny Wayne Shepherd

and last, but definitely not least, Lester Polsfuss ;) ( I wonder who knows & who'll Google him :) )

I think... :unsure: :LOL:

Already some suggestions (Prince, Tony Iommi etc) I could add. There are some that based on who I've seen, and my personal favourite bands I'd probably keep intact but at least four, if not five, that could change. So many mighty fine guitarists out there
