I voted for Brian May as being technically the best, although IMHO he is a prog rock guitarist rather than Metal/Hard Rock.

I'm sorry but I just don't "get" Jimbo, he always sounds out of key to my ears.

he usually is LOL.  that guy was waaaaayyyy too experimental IMO.  never played a song the same way twice.  and most of his songs are tuned inbetween notes, which is beyond annoying.

We'll he is primarily a prog rock guitarist, but his hard rock solos are pretty awesome. So I put him on here.

Hendrix is a legend, but May's style of playing is so much more musical IMO.

Yep. For a Power Trio I prefer Robin Trower Band, Trower may have no charisma but he is a superb guitarist, he plays tunes rather than Jimbo's atonal experiments, and Page's incessant scales.

Isn't this list a bit massively slanted towards "Guitar World' guitarists? I feel like you're leaving waaaay too many people out, but then again a poll isn't really the best for this kind of topic anyways.

Dave Mustaine for the list because he wrote the early powerful solos for Metallica and his work with Megadeth is impressive.  Plus, the man covered the seasons with an orchestra!

As for the best that's too opinionated, and the reason for that is because we will never know the best factually.
