      Yes, I knew that. And you're right, you can definitely hear the influence.

      Don, I'll have to check out John Juanese as well.

      But, for great rock guitar riffs, how could I forget?! George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) and his killer "Mr. Scary" that was on my favorite Dokken album, Back for the Attack.

      Vito Bratta (White Lion) is another underrated/overlooked guitarist.

        All these years later and Slash still blows me away. Love me some Zakk Wylde, yet I'm not a Sabbath fan. Also pretty much everyone mentioned in this thread. If you don't know who CLC mentioned, Tommy Emmanuel, check him out. He's an amazing Australian, Chet Atkins style.

          JEEESH !!!

          I can already see that I have to check in on you guys (and Youtube) more often, to set the record straight.

          What on earth are the Beatles doing on Youtube's top 100 list of great guitar riffs. Puleese! I mean John and Paul were great song writers but guitar gods they are not, imho.

          I have no major issues with all their other choices except for two glaring omissions (ok, three or four)

          Where is Jeff Beck and Johnny Winter? Or:


          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzSayxVM_E0

          or one of my personal favourites (I sometimes feel like a one man TYA fanclub) of Alvin Lee (there can be no guitar god Valhalla without him, imo) playing electric slide guitar with the help of his mike stand. It may not be an orgasm but pretty damn near. For me he is right up there with Page playing twelve string or Jimi playing his axe behind his back.

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_i07SahQl5w

          Ok, more recently, Grean Day's 'American Idiot' does ot for me

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5mjN32G1iI

          I think tomorrow I might start a new thread: 'World's greatest harmonica players. I've got my number one pick already.

            my turn!

            as far as riffs i must say these are my personal favorite guitar riffs, even if the guitarist playing them was never exactly a "guitar god":

            hallowed be thy name - iron maiden
            live wire - motley crue
            mannequin & scroched earth erotica - cradle of filth
            all the riffs off the album "Hall of the mountain king" - savatage

            as for guitar legends (imo) thers a few id like to add:
            http://youtube.com/watch?v=0ybVP-pSAbo - alexi laiho from Children of Bodom

            http://youtube.com/watch?v=B96HqItPiP0 - Criss Oliva from savatage. this is a clip of Savatage (named Avatar back then) covering Van Halens Eruption/You really got me now

            im suprised no ones mentioned this yet but the late great "Dimebag" Darrell..
            this is an old clip of him playing a bit of Mother Earth/Revelation and Quiet Riots 'Battle Axe'.

            and of course the greatest Randy Rhoads http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZZOMtp-JNE8

            thers another guitar god in my opinion also thats a bit underrated. there's so many clips on youtube featuring him itd take all day to post. Dave Mustaine of Megadeth.


            that's my little addition to this thread lemme know when we start the world's greatest bassist and drummers thread

              Nice! I love Savatage, and that album is great, classic metal!

              Cool other choices, too. I've been meaning to check out Children of Bodom.

                    He also taught Kirk Hammet from Metallica between Kill em All and ...And Justice for All. You can really hear Satriani's influence in his solos between the four albums. I really liked Satriani and those other guitar guys when I was a kid. I went seriously 'anti-wanker' during the 90's though.

                    C'mon... the Beatles have SOME riffs. Day Tripper? Paperback Writer? Helter Skelter?

                            yes! two of my favorites of theirs are "Career of Evil" and "Godzilla"

                            That's old school riffin'

                            Let's switch it up a little....how about Skynard's "I Know a Little" or Allman Brother's "Jessica"?

                              I like Blue Oyster Cult n all, but... they could have used a little more cowbell.

                                Let's not forget Tony Iommi/Black Sabbath... the greatest, not in spite of... because of his "plastic" fingertips.
