I know and agree that it's impossible to say or prove that one great guitarist is greater than another or that one style of music is better than another. But I think it interesting to narrow down in one's opinion what are the greatest to you.
Mine in no particular order:
Eric Johnson: Ah Via Musicom Al DiMeola: Elegant Gypsy The Dixie Dregs: Night of the Living Dregs Van Halen: Fair Warning Jeff Beck: Wired
Man, that was tougher than I thought. I even had to modify my Jeff Beck pick. I think I pulled something in my brain.

Man ya'll have some great picks. I'm surprised but in a good way to see two different Doors albums in the mix. I could listen to Phil's 5 day in and day out. Great albums. I love the acoustic tones on just about all the CSN&Y stuff. I see we have some serious blues boys here. It was really hard for me not to have an SRV pick in my 5. But by having only 5 I felt it would reveal our real influences on the king of all instruments. There are a couple of picks that I haven't had the pleasure of listening to so I'm going to have to fire up the itunes account and get busy. Thanks for posting gentlemen.
Les - let's get busy, I'm betting there are some dead dudes we need to pay homage to.
