    levels 4 and 6 should be swapped, being a great rhythm player is way more demanding than being a great lead player. Hetfield and Ian are way better guitarists than Hammett or Slash

        This guy is objectively better than anyone else on this list because he’s able to do so much with just one fucking string.

      Based. Usually it is the other way around. At least the drummer had the balls to boot the guitarist. Most guitarists stay in the band with their bvll.

    It's interesting to see all of the youtube and tiktok guitar heroes who seem to play a lot and riff with ideas and cool changes--but without ever really turning it into music. It's like....micro guitar performance. Absolutely something I find appreciable as a player, because I am still a intermediate player--I'm certainly not as good as them. But it does make me wonder what the point of it all is, and like, what that means--generationally--about this batch of guitar players. Is it a progression? Like a second or third generation of kids whose parents or grandparents were guitar players of a lesser caliber, but who aspired to rock gods of the day?

    To each their own maybe. My "end goal" of guitar is to play all the great songs I want to and augment my own songwriting ability, and to hopefully someday have a level of proficiency that elevates my own understanding of how music works. Lastly--I am shamefully another bedroom guitarist. How do people join bands anyway? How do you play with other people? I know I would really benefit from playing with others but I'd hate to show up in a room full of strangers and having to find my way to the right note or key the entire time like a jerk. I know I can learn at home--and I am--but you can learn so much more intuitively, and usually a lot faster, by doing something with peers.

    Anyway, technical mastery is literally meaningless to me in lists like these. Whether you're some high-tech super-shredder or a guy playing classical guitar it just doesn't matter. That's impressive, it's even music--but it's not interesting. Notes aren't interesting. Compositions are interesting, dynamics are interesting. The most proficient nobodies will gradually slide around and off of this list but there's something more to guitar than sheer technical proficiency.

      Most people who just jam together without being in a band will play pretty simple stuff. Like 'hey anon, this chord progression in a A major' or whatever. Then you just fiddle around until everybody is bored. Really nothing to sweat over, just gotta find other intermediate players. Ask friends if they know anyone who plays.

    For me it's

    Robert Johnson, most influential blues guitarist
    Jimi Hendrix, most influential modern rock guitarist
    Davy Graham, most influential folk guitarist
    John Renbourn, one of the most virtuosic guitarists full stop

      Damn. He'd probably still be alive if he got into coke instead. It's easier to quit.

    Yeah the whole world couldn't recover from the musical impact of these songwriting geniuses like the guy from Pantera and Dream Theater.

    While Nirvana was just you know, some entry level thing that gets mentioned for decent songwriting.

    This guy is clueless and confuses musical expressivity with how many notes and how fast you can play them in a meaningful way.

    Hahah Pantera guitarist a genius songwriter above all those in the first ranks. Holy shit what a clueless moron.One song written by Frusciante is 100 times musically better than anything Pantera ever did.

    This dude is a fucking idiot so I'm not watching the video so I'm responding to your tl;dw
    >Level 1
    Hurts so see BJA and George in the same tier
    >Level 2
    John Frusciante is not limited, not a virtuoso obviously but eh
    >Level 3
    Zappa was a beast, and Peter Frampton and Prince were very nuanced but intelligent players, fuck this, at least he says that Mayer isn't good which is true
    >Level 4
    Somehow these are better than Level 3? Malcolm Young being there is even offensive
    >Level 5
    Buckethead has no filter but that doesn't mean he can't write moving pieces, in fact he's a better songwriter than anyone most people here
    >Level 6
    A bunch of hack and Roads what the fuck is this, most of the guitarists in levels 1-4 are better players and songwriters than these
    >Level 7
    Meh, good metal players, that's it
    >Level 8
    This is so inconsistent, I hate Page and love Iommi, and this is still bullshit, also Tim Henson an innovator kek
    >Level 9
    Shitters, muh blues, muh spork who cares
