You can be great, you can be a legend, but can you be a God? It will take a lot to impress me, so if they have made it to this list, they are something to behold. Will your favorite guitarist shred their way onto the list, or will they be regulated to live a life of mediocrity?
What does it take to be a “Guitar God?” Does it mean that you inspired others to follow your sound? Have you influenced other greats on this very same list? Maybe you revolutionized a genre or flat out broke barriers? This list contains valid reasoning for why I believe they are the best pick to be a “Guitar God.”
New rock bands pop up all the time, but one thing is sure. They will credit one of these guys with being their idols or influence. So who would you pick to be a “Guitar God?”
