Greatest at what? Even in his genre he's far from the greatest. Dude was a coked up version of the King's, Hendrix, and Guy.

Sounds personal. I feel he technically surpassed all three by a huge margin and could have schooled them all live imo.

I guarantee any of your favorite guitarist would be nervous at the thought of having to follow a SRV set.

No no no no no no no my good sir. Hendrix was an absolute god for every moment that his hands made contact with a guitar. SRV was a fine musician and I bet that his live performances were energetic and fun as hell, but Hendrix's performances came straight from his bones. Right down to the marrow. Livid passion that SRV could only dream of and I bet he'd agree with me on that.

Nothing would make Keiji Haino nervous, but he might wonder about the odd concert pairing .

I love Hendrix just as much as the next guy and he is an extremely influential guitarist, but he could be extremely sloppy and all over-the-place live. I believe SRV played Hendrix's Voodoo Chile better than Hendrix did and it's his song. Of course SRV would agree with you because Jimi inspired him and he was very humble when it came to guitarist he respected. He also watered down his playing when he played with his idols.

I hope you're not talking about this guy. Even Joni Mitchell could run circles around this dude on guitar. Yikes!

There is no way SRV is better than Hendrix, and he would probably be the first to say that, he loved Hendrix himself.

But he's still a **** hot guitarist, theres no doubt about that.

Hendrix had the better music and was more inspirational and a trend setter, I'll give you that, but was known to be a sloppy and lazy player that overused the fuzz box. SRV was just more technical and clean and that's to be expected because by the 80s a few guitarist had surpassed Hendrix. Hendrix was just more experimental and made better music but he was not a better guitarist by any stretch. Either way, I probably wouldn't put Hendrix or SRV in the top 10 all time unless we are talking about top 10 inspirational guitarist then Jimi would be number 1.

^ Welcome to you too, Muso! It's alway good to meet a new blues enthusiast here, but these "better than" contests only go so far really as so much is down to personal taste. For what it's worth, this is my own take on SRV:-

Sad then that I have to go along with some of the negative comments on this thread.The Texas Flood album, for instance, has some great playing but always leaves me wanting something more. The problem, in my opinion, is the short-and-sweet format of the songs : a lot of them are only 3 mins long and include lyrics that distract from the guitar work. Maybe that`s down to the record company trying to shoe-horn SRV into their idea of a palatable formula, or maybe it`s down to my limited tolerance for banal lyrics.

Whatever the case, perhaps someone can suggest an SRV album where the guitar solos open out a bit more, in the style of Tin Pan Alley or Lenny ? In return, if you like languid, lengthly explorations of electric blues, I can strongly recommend Roy Buchanan. His Second Album and Millenium Collection feature 6-minute instrumentals of poignant, hard-edged, searing guitar that take you so far out from the main tune that you forget which track you`re listening to - and I guess that is what I`ve never yet got from SRV.
Eight years later, and I'm still waiting for that SRV album with long rambling solos.
