The best guitarist ever is/was Stevie Ray Vaughn. I just got done reading a biography on him, called "Caught in the Crossfire".....the guy lived, breathed, existed for his guitar & was determined to make it with his guitar. The only 2 other guitarists who can be mentioned in the same breath is Jimi Hendrix & Eddie Van Halen. These 3 guys had there guitars plugged into there hearts (not sure about EVH anymore though).

I've been doing some listening to Hendrix & Vaughn lately......comparing the 2, I would have to say Vaughn is better..........Hendrix definitely was an innovator & broke new ground, but his playing was rough & choppy at times, & guitar was out-of-tune at times. I have this video, "Live at the El Macombo", just Vaughn & Double Trouble in a small club in Toronto......it's mind blowing, he is SO into his playing its like he's in another world.

Stevie Ray Vaughn played guitar with heart, soul, feeling, & awesome technique...........in my opinion, the greatest guitarist ever.
