Who Is The Best Current Guitar Player?

Recommended Posts

Although the thing about Megaherz is that members have been changed many times since they were founded in the early 90's, presently I think none of the members at all are the original ones. So it's hard to be certain whether it's his playing or not on a given song.

I nominate Ross Childress of Collective Soul fame, his licks made that band... and now that he's gone, they're broken.

I want to let you all know I wasn't exactly serious when I said Dave Genn. You can all return from the edge of your seats. Thankyou.

Why not? His guitar leads were great. Matt Good is worse off without him. And whoever said his guitar stuff was half the reason they became a fan, that goes for me too. When you're in highschool, you want to hear intense guitar music or whatever, and the Genn/Good combo provided that for me atleast.

Of course his guitar playing was awesome, but I'm not gonna say he's the best current guitarist in the world? I mean, that's what this thread is about isn't it?
