Do you agree?

"Prince, Jack White, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and REM's Peter Buck were also in the top 10"

That sums up this poll!!!

"So I'm still struggling to keep up. I definitely don't put myself in the legend category."

Can’t say I blame him for saying that, as long as the likes of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, John McLaughlin and Allan Holdsworth are still alive.

no,I don't.

He was voted 'best guitarist of the past 30 years' by some of the 30,000 people who responded to a BBC 6 Axe Factor online poll.

That doesn't mean he is the best guitarist. He's a good guitarist, certainly, but there are others I like better. That's the way with polls, the people who respond to them are the ones who get counted, and good luck to John Frusciante - he seems like a nice guy.

John who???

Can I assume that the names of all 10 of these so called 'guitarists' were picked, at random, out of a hat by a drunk one evening?

Dont think i would have any of them in my top 10

Always surprises me that Tommy Emmanuel is never in these polls

What's the point of voting to put somebody else's list into an order of preference?

Of The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but the most prominent part of their unique sound is by Flea, the bass player.

I'm sure there are guitarists that people will prefer over John, but for technical ability and such a broad range of style, number one spot seems about right.

Morello made 5th, he shouldn't have even made list. His riffs are fantastic but I feel like turning the stereo to mute whenever his solos appear.

In fact, the more I look at the list, the more it seems people have just picked their favourite bands and ignored the point of the poll.
