    3 prior votes for me. That is the correct answer. I stink at guitar. If you heard me play you would agree I am extremely accurately rated.

    Third page and no one mention of fully laden swallows.
    Stunning oversight.

    That's funny!

    On a serious note ( pardon the pun) Tommy Emmanuel gets nowhere near the praise he deserves. if you've seen him live you walk away thinking what is a human being capable of. He is underrated and , in my opinion, the best guitarist on the planet, self taught and cannot read music. See the Captain and Tommy on Youtube ( Anderton's)and you'll get a slice of his greatness.
    Live, Tommy will blow you away, AND he's a nice guy, who often does meet'n'greets and even lessons after shows. Plays 300 nights a year. sheer brilliance.

    Just remember that if your name is Jimmy you automaticallly get a higher rating. Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page,
    Jimmy Vaughn. Also if your last name is King-- BB King, Albert King, Freddy King.

    But seriously, I was just looking at the Rolling Stones list of 100 greatest guitarists on line-- based on feedback
    from some great current guitar players. I could definitely quibble with the order of things, which goes back to the
    OP's original question, but all in all it's a pretty good list in my opinion.

    But, for example, Neil Young is ranked 17 and Derek Trucks is ranked 16. If we go by songwriting
    and impact, then Neil Young is definitely on the list and way ahead of Derek Trucks. If we go by their technical skill,
    then Derek Trucks is way ahead since he's pretty much one of the top slide players currently on tour, and Neil Young
    doesn't make the cut.

    As far as
    hard rock lead goes, Randy Rhoads and Ritchie Blackmore are on the list, but I would say that Michael Schenker and Ulrich
    Roth were way better players in terms of technique and in terms of solo composition (and don't make the list).
    Yngwie doesn't make the list, which I agree with. Joe Satriani and
    Steve Vai don't make the list. I think Joe possibly deserves to be on the list because of his success with instrumental albums like
    Surfing with the Alien. But then what about Petrucci or the king of sweep-picking-- Frank Gambale? Eric Johnson also isn't
    on the list. Bottom line is that all of these players are very technically good, but in some ways all are descendents of EVH and
    can't really hold a candle to his impact in terms of actual hits and on guitar playing in general. I would say Randy Rhoads is
    over-rated because really he was just a hired gun for Sabbath and there's plenty of guitar players of that era who were easily
    just as good. Perhaps one easy way to raise your rating is to die at your peak.

    Plus the Rolling Stones list is just rock/pop guitar. No jazz players, no classical players, no bossa nova Brazilians.
    Most of whom can blow many of the listed players away in terms of technique.

    And the studio greats aren't on the list, either. Tommy Tedesco, Howard Roberts, Steve Lukathier, etc. All the guys
    that actually played on more hit albums than any guitar player, ever....and you didn't even know it.

    Dwayne over at Larry's Guitar World, is extremely precise,he uses metric guitar picks and stuff.

    he's rated for 110v and 220v, and he's certified, he has a piece of paper in his wallet to prove it.

    Hendrix, lives up to all the hype. Although he doesn't live, of course.

    The question is accurately rated by whom? Because if it's me I would say they're all perfectly accurately rated. :twisted:
