    The world of music knows dozens (if not even hundreds) of well-known guitar players, who had great impact upon different stages of music development and the history of music in general. They played in different music genres, but each of them has made

Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain is the world-known guitar player and the leader of the renowned “Nirvana” group. There is hardly a person, who has never heard anything or listened to the songs of the group. Kurt was capable of giving common rhythms unique and memorable sounding, making each song a real masterpiece. Aggression and extravagance were the symbols of this guitar player, who could open new ways for alternative rock, becoming a world-renowned grunge musician. Being left-handed, Kurt Cobain played unique rhythms and songs that sounded fantastically. No one is able to repeat the manner of the singer by this time. Kurt Cobain actually deserves the top place in the rating of the world-known guitar players.

Johny Ramon

Being one of the founders and leaders of the first and renowned pank group “Ramones”, Johny Ramon managed to become the vivid sample of a punk guitar player. Energetic, bright and devoted to music, he stood out from the crowd. He passed a challenging and complicated way together with Joey Ramon (who was also the co-founder of the group) from the very beginning and up to the very end. When he was 20 years old, he bought his first electric guitar for $54 only and almost all the world-popular hits of the group were played on it. Johny Ramon made notable impact upon the development of music and, thus, deserves to be placed on the 16 th position in the list of the best rock guitar players of all times. 

Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton is, probably, one of the first guitar players, whose name comes to mind, when you think about the world of rock music. He is a renowned member of the Rock-n-Roll Fame  Hall. He is also the Commander of the Order of the British Empire. The first instrument in the career of the musician was a cheap acoustic guitar with steel strings that was given to him as a gift from his grandmother. It was really uneasy to play this guitar and Eric has to be really goal-oriented and talented to ideally master it. Eric Clapton was initially addicted to blues and he was a street musician at first. As time went by, though, he became the member and then the leader and the top guitar player of the world renowned groups like “The Yardbirds” and “Cream”.

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix was the first and the unspeakable pioneer in the rock guitar music industry. He is rightfully considered a legend of the music world as he has done a lot for the development of the niche. He opened lots of new electric guitar sounding options, having become a smart, brave and courageous rock musician. His creativity has notable impact upon all the modern guitar players with no exception. Due to this influence and music achievements, Jimi now remains the everlasting sample for all musicians willing to avail the world glory and recognition.
