    This time I'd like to ask you to vote for your favorite british guitarist. In this poll, you can only pick one. I included some of my favorites here. But this is not about me, right? So I also included some names that their works I'm not even familiar with. Let's discuss.

    I will post mine later, I'm at the office as I type this message hehe

    Note; If you think 'ah, it's been done before' or 'ah, just another guitarist thread', please stay away. We don't need your BS here. Thank you.

    Rory Gallagher is not British. He's Irish. Feels like an insult to him.

    Steve Hackett

    Second goes to Latimer or Francis Lickerish, with the former might be the best electric player however Hackett can do the classical and rock style so well he wins in this case.

    A bit short sighted because there's probably so many choices that aren't here and I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking that honestly.

    Massive omission in Johnny Marr and no Richard Thompson?
    I'd put Nick Drake and Mick Green up there too.

    No John McLaughlin or Allan Holdsworth?

    Ridiculous.

    Should have specified electric guitarist too - making acceptable the exclusion of Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, Martin Carthy...

    To avoid prog bias accusations

    Johnny Marr plus David Sylvian are up there for sure - I know Sylvian really isn't known as a guitar player but can do classical guitar really well and you can lead that back to his Satie esque Nightporter from 1980, albeit on piano.

    I was only messing, apologies if it was lost in translation.

    Out of the guitarists on the list, I've gone for Jimmy Page.

    If you want to include Irish guitarists, you'd need to state 'The British Isles'.
