    Jimi Hendrix or Carlos Santana?

    Who do you think is a better guitarist?

    Jimi, of course!
    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    2. Peter Green couldn't carry Jimi's guitar pick.

    Come on now!

    I know what the OP is
    Green was a far better player than either.
    Hendrix is overblown .Clapton was better than him and Santana is a shadow of Green
    If you think that creating a sound that resembles a cat being tortured is skillful then Hendrix is your man
    I cant help it if you are tone deaf and believe hype over quality.
    Come on yourself

    I've heard Hendrix recordings where he is doing 32nd note full bends. No matter what anyone says, that is incredible. I can't even think that fast lol. And I can play 32nd notes on the double bass at 200 beats per minute. Santan can do the same. They are all great :P

    Surely a better player is one that produces the best sound not play the instrument the fastest.

    Are you suggesting that Rimsky-Korsakov was a better composer than Beethoven because he composed the Flight of the bumblebee?

    I an derailing the thread though and I will stop forthwith

    Apparently not or else you would have answered and not bring up some second-rate blues guitarist. Hell, Peter Green isn't even the best guitarist in his genre, let along trying to compare him with the legends.

    Please, girl. Just stop. Going outside the box in an A or B debate isn't cute or original. When you display the ability to follow simple instructions we'll all take your meager opinions about music more seriously.

    I was going to do a poll asking if they like Coke or Pepsi better but gansao would probably derail the thread by answering TACOS!

    I had a choice between an over rated hippie who made noises with a guitar rather than actually play it and an overhyped blues/rock guitarist.

    It was like asking who's the best group between the Archies and the Monkees

    Hendrix was a joke ,inventing new innovative ways to play XXXX ..you may not agree but who cares?

    Santana was and is a good guitarist.He plays Green's Black magic woman competently but hes a good player rather than a great one..you may not agree but who cares?

    Green was a brilliant player who went mad under the influence of drugs and depression but in his prime he was the best blues guitar player in the world..you may not agree but who cares?

    If I want make my opinion known I will.Get used to it ...girl.... sheesh

    Note that initially I did try to undermine your choice or refer to the merits of either player.I just posted the name of a guitarist that I believed was better than both..just that

    Its you who started the insults towards both myself and the person that I chose as better than either guitarists that the OP referred to.
    If you want to derail this thread by continuing the insulting match you started then I will be quite happy to oblige .
    Wild child? Ignorant child more like

    Like I said. When you display the ability to follow simple and basic instructions you will be taken seriously.

    Until then your babble is meaningless and come off as a 3rd grader. You've already exhibited your ignorance by claiming Peter Green is the greatest guitar player in the world. That XXXX dismisses you instantly of any credibility regarding music from here on out.

    Don't ask gansao who her favorite football team is. She'll probably tell you her favorite movie.

    Now gansao, do you have an answer to the thread question or are you going to derail this thread further with your drunken, off-topic babble?

    Rolling Stone's top 100:

    #15: Carlos Santana

    The hideously off topic Peter Green is 38.

    There are 97 other off-topic guitarists on the list as well.

    Like I said ignorant child.
    I never ever stated that Peter Green was the greatest guitar player in the world.I said at one point he was the greatest BLUES player in the world.
    Please learn to read.

    My answer to the question is that the monkees were unquestionally better than the Archies.
    Jimi hendrix was complete rubbish.Only fit for the the bargain basement cd bin and Carlos Santana was competent.
    Neither of them were of the standard of Green or were fit to be on the same stage as Clapton

    Cant you think for yourself or do you need a magazine to tell you what you think?
    Obviously Jimi hendrix and his scalded cat form of guitar playing was best because Rolling Stone said so..sheesh
    Isnt picking out Rolling stones selection rather than your own just as off topic as bitching about my choice?
    OP Who do you think is a better guitarist?.
    Have I offended the old hippies on this forum or something?
