Hendrix is a Guitar God
, he can play better with his teeth than most can play with there hands.
AKA "Guitar Hero". A guitarist known for extraordinary skill, flash, style and influence. Usually this applies to rock'n'roll
guitarists but not exclusively.
1. Chet Adkins
is labeled as a country guitarist but he's delved into more genres than that. I saw him once on PBS
where he performed TWO patriotic songs on his acoustic guitar - one song played on the strings near the sound hole, and the other tune on the neck. The 2 songs were being played at the same time! Chet looks like a guitar god to me.
2. When Dire Straits
guitarist Mark Knopfler
won an MTV
Guitarist of the Year award he was amazed and surprized, saying that he never considered himself to be a "guitar god". He later made an album with Chet Adkins.
3. I have seen many bands in concert that have influential guitarists. Some of the guitar gods I have seen are:
Eddie Van Halen,
Stevie Ray Vaughn,
The Edge (U2
Steaming Steve Clark (Def Leppard
Rick Neilsen (Cheap Trick
Alex Lifeson (Rush
Vernon Reid (Living Colour
Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd
Keith Richards (Rolling Stones
