Clearly, you haven't followed guitar playing since 1995. Come back when you have a clue.

'95 happened to be the year Gerry died and the last year I saw him, GAWD I miss him.

Instead of Garth Brooks, I would have put Johnny Cash, personally.The guy, even though he's dead, is still an icon in the country music genre (and to some extent, early rock music, as early country and early rock are about synonymous with eachother).

In my opinion, the same holds true for: King, Berry, Stevie Ray, Clapton, Gilmour, Page, May, Rhoads and many more.

Yeah, forgot about him (despite the fact that he played on my folk's record player almost constantly growing up... lol)
I put Woodie Guthrie because he was earlier, and influenced a LOT of music, even today. However, the man in black is definitely worthy.

At any rate, Garth Brookes doesn't even BEGIN to hold a candle to any of them!

I've never liked his guitar playing. He might've been innovative, yes, but hardly the greatest. BB King was a better electric guitar player than him.

BB King is generaly not considered rock. However, yes, I would definitely put him on any list of greats.

Garth Brooks prolly had more number 1 hits than Cash and Guthrie combined, and during a more competitive time.

There I said it.

Maybe. But your opinion is invalid if you think Tom Morello or Jack White can compare to Hendrix. Not even in their wettest dreams.

btw, as somebody who's listened to waaay more blues than just about anybody, B.B. King is not the King. He's not even the best of the three Kings (Albert, Freddie, and B.B.).

Do you think that Jack White and Tom Morello could not play any Jimi Hendrix guitar riff? I'm not suggesting that Jack White and Tom Morello are better than Jimi Hendrix as musicians or as creative people. I'm suggesting that they can play the Hendrix Star Spangled Banner. So when notyou2 says "nobody can do what Hendrix did with an electric guitar," I say, yeah, they can. I can play Bach on the piano, doesn't mean I'm Bach, but it also doesn't mean I can't do what Bach can do with a piano.

I guess the proof would be to do the Star Spangled Banner with the same guitar and equipment Jimi did it with. My point was there are way more accessories today for effects than in Hendrix' day.

Scott Joplin is the only one on the list whose work I really know so he wins my vote by default.

notyou2's statement was that no one did with the electric guitar what Jimi did. That's true because it entails more than technical skill. White and Morello are not the gamechangers Hendrix was, and never will be. He's had more impact on music than White, Morello, and a whole slew of others could ever hope to achieve. Fifty years from now, White and Morello will be tiny blips, mere cliff notes in rock music probably only remembered by those who listened to them when they were active. Jimi will likely be remembered for as long as Western music is popular. That's what he did with the guitar, and what they can't do. Jimi coaxed all manner of noises out of his guitars and expanded the guitar's vocabulary, so to speak.

My point wasn't that they aren't technically proficient enough to be considered good guitarists. Any asshole can play skillfully, doesn't mean they play well or create good music (see Dragonforce or Yngwie or any of the other guys who just play scales and arpeggios really fast). And I don't dislike Morello or White.
