It’s not unlikely that you would have come across articles that create a list of the best this, or the best that around the world. But fewer subjects raises more controversy than naming the best guitarists in the world. Here is a list of the 43 greatest guitarists of all time; it’s not a list that we have dreamed up. We’ve searched the web, trawled magazines and have reviewed several lists of the best guitarists ever before coming up with this list of 43. Read on to see artists that have got people swept off their feet through the riffs and rhythm in the mastery of their six-string strokes.

43. Bo Diddley

Ellas Otha Bates, also known as Bo Diddley is a Chicago born guitarist that has influenced several people that follow him. Bo Diddley, who was born on December 30, 1992, perhaps should be higher on this list considering the people he influenced. He had a lasting influence on Elvis Presley and was largely responsible for translating blues into rock ‘n’ roll.

Bo Diddley’s songs are said to have “unleashed a West African groove,” and many have claimed that his songs are easy to follow since they are groovy. Bo Diddley, Who Do You Love and Road Runner are notable songs of Ellas Otha Bates. Buddy Holly, Keith Richards amongst others were inspired to pick up the guitar through the music style of Bo Diddley.
