I was just reading a guitar magazine that was listing the greatest guitarists. Hendrix and someone else won. Anyway they were grading people in the first round on chops, and in the second tone, the third was originality, the fourth versatility, the fifth was how influential the person was, the sixth was their body of work, and the last was the "X-factor" (if the person had a "magic" style). So, after reading this, I hae decided to read up and practice chops, research on tones, find an original and wacky thing for a pick, and learn at least a tab book full of songs from every type of music (jazz, blues, rock, metal styles, pop, punk, classical). So I just wanted to share with you guys what makes a superb guitarist (by some people's opinions).
