My vote is Angus Young. George[older brother] taught Angus and Malcom. Malcolm and Angus Young developed the idea for the band's name after their sister, Margaret Young, saw the initials "AC/DC" on a sewing machine. Angus has some of the best riffs i have ever heard.

I think he's under appreciated for sure. The outro riffs on the end of squealer are amazing. Personally though, I'd give my vote to Roy Clark. Yes that Roy Clark. Even if you don't like country, It seems he can play most anything with strings & play it WELL. He plays pretty much any guitar, banjo (even ukulele) of all types, I've seen him do things with a 12 string guitar that leave my jaw hanging open.

Hammond and Winter are good. So is Elvin Bishop. But the undeniable king of the blues guitar is BB King.

Roy Clark is a solid contender for best overall.

I heard Clapton live, first Cream tour in the USA. He could solo for half an hour and never play the same riff twice. People who heard him earlier in British clubs said he was already slipping by then.

Greg Koch
Guthrie Govan

Eric Clapton may be right. At his peak, Eddie Van Halen played the best riffs. Chet Atkins was amazing because he made it look so easy... as did Glen Campbell.

I’ve come to appreciate Brian May, too,

So... IMHO, there’s no one answer.
