I think Rory Gallagher desrves mentioning. Maybe not # 1 but in the top 100

I love Rory Gallagher because no matter what he had in his hand, he exceeded expectations. His trademark guitar was his Fender Strat. But when he played acoustic guitar, his Martin, the National steel guitar or the mandolin, his shows were exhilerating. The adrenalin was drained. And if that wasn't enough, if you were lucky to have met him, what a gentle human being. I have met a few stars and quite a few were jerks. It's hard to say who is THE best. Rollingstone magazine and their readers don't know Rory Gallagher existed. And as far as female guitarist goes, Bonnie Raitt is great but so is Ellen McIlwaine.

You said right that Rory Gallagher deserves No.1 position because he is the rock star of guitar playing with song as well. I have a lot of performance which i have download from different sources at different time. this site also have some more profile who know the best way of guitar playing. However, I want to get assignment writing company which have a lot of best and most experience writers as well.

Bonnie and Ellen are favorites of mine also. I would add Joni Mitchell to the best female list. That tuning was so wierd but the music was stunningly beautiful. Doesn't hurt that all three were babes but I'm a guy, couldn't help but notice.
