The Edge - because he plays one note with a bunch of echo and other effects.
Johnny Ramone - because he is incapable of playing a lead.
Bryan Adams - because he's from Canada, eh?
Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. He's dreamy.
Bruce Springsteen - I like the way he uses a telecaster as a prop and always looks like he is playing only one chord or two chords. Pretty sure that thing is not plugged in.

1. Jerry
2. Jimi
3. Trey
4. Gilmore
5. Merle Travis

But other than Jerry and Jimi those slots could change pretty easily.

Without thinking about it too much:

BOB WEIR, Jerry(and a few of his 'clones'), Townsend, Harrison, Clapton, Keith Richards

And to be a hater, Hendrix does nothing for me.

I would say the same about Bob Weir on guitar Laughing

Ever heard "Machine Gun" from Band of Gypsies? Thats what changed my mind about his playing.

If you have, then I can at least agree that his style isn't everyones cup of tea.

3.Clapton: God
4.Harrison:The quiet guitar hero
5.Gilmour: Soaring, uplifting, awe inspiring

I would also throw in Mark Knopfler and also Lyndsey Buckingham and Robbie Krieger.I love how the last two use the old finger pick style!

Why don't you like Weir? Not a lead guitarist per se, but that dude redefined the role of a rhythm guitarist. He does all kinds of interesting partial chord progessions, arpeggios, filling riffs, etc..Not sure how you can diss him. Or maybe you think all those sounds are coming from Jerry's guitar. Confused

I just think his playing is to simplistic to really say he's a game changing guitarist. I feel like he's never adds anything to a jam and is usually just getting in the way. And i know he's not a lead, but i can't stand Bob solo like on Little Red Rooster. Some songs he has something worthwhile to throw in, Spanish Jam, Terrapin, ect. But over all I've heard guys in Dead cover bands play better than him. Hell, maybe you're right about me thinking all the good sounds are from Jerry because all you guys seem to love his playing. Or maybe I've theres just been to many times when I've been getting into a Jerry solo and BAM! "I need a woman bout twice my age!" lol

YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO MORE 85! He was all over that year, and 88.

Check out 4/8/88 (or 4/7/88, I always get the two confused) and 11/21/85 immediately!

And listen to Fall 72 - Bobby is all over it and high in the mix 10/18/72 Playin>Darkstar>Dew>Playin is a peak of Bobbydom.
And note that most of the cool guitar riffs in China Cat are Weir (Jerry plays the main "basic theme" but Bob is doing that neat dancing weaving line), as well as a good part of Hard To Handle.. My favorite Bob geetar is 4/8/72 in the jam that links Darkstar and Sugar Mag.

Rooster and any of his slide parts are admittedly horrific. I think he just liked to make noise with those. Laughing

Weir on slide guitar during Row Jimmy, Stagger Lee and Fire on the Mountain in '78 was awesome!!

Some of my favorite Bobby guitar songs : Althea, WRS, Dew, Black Throated Wind, Jack Straw and Looks Like Rain

Now if the question is top/fave rhythm guitarist, then Weir makes my list, as does Keith Richards, though the top spot I reserve for Hubert Sumlin, even Hendrix used his licks.

Bucket is definitely skilled at his profession. A little too far out for me at times, but some of his stuff absolutely rocks.

To further refine my list...

Jerry
Jimmy
Chuck Berry
Gilmour (now that I play, I can appreciate what he was doing more, because I can't even get close to his timing and precision).
Still need a 5th.

At the moment what comes to mind is:

Jerry
Roy Nichols
Johnny Ramone

I think Bobby is a very creative rhythm guitar player but very sloppy, he clams a lot of notes, especially on that China Cat lick! He doesn't have very good tone or much of a touch. A for ideas, C for execution. As for his leads...uggh.
