As far as the "greatest" goes, my vote is tied between Al di
Meola and Steve Vai. Great tones, techniques, and phrasing.
That said, if I'm asked who my favorite guitarist is, I'll answer
Carlos Santana without hesitation. There are folks who do any
number of things "better" than Santana, but his tone,
phrasing, and versatility make him my personal fav.
