Yes, we all know lists are subjective — that’s what makes them so fun! The below is a collection of what I believe to be the top 100 guitarists of all time. The artists were selected for their feel, creativity, impact on music — and lastly their virtuosity. Technical proficiency is never the most important factor in what makes a musician great…it’s their ability to express their soul through their instrument. The 100 below have that in spades. So without further adieu — the Z Review’s top 100 guitarists!
