Go ahead. Tell me your top 10. I won't get angry if I hear a Kurt Cobain in this thread because the key word is "Favorite" and not "Greatest".

Good ones. But I'm afraid I don't know who Alex Lora is.

I can't listen to albums that are all guitar. I get bored very quickly. So for me Steve Vai is great on Whitesnake or Dave Lee Roth albums, but Flexable is a "listen once & never listen to again" deal. In short, I like guitarists in bands like Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Black Sabbath, The Cult, AC/DC, Sex Pistols, Rainbow, etc. I liked Jake E. Lee when he played with Ozzy but am not a huge fan of Randy Rhodes.

I don't love listening to guitar instrumentals nearly as much as I love watching them.

Eric Johnson - "Cliffs of Dover"

If anyone has had the privelege of seeing his performance on Austin City Limits (which one may easily download from many sources), do you not deny that he is God?

I do tend to agree that "Cliffs Of Dover" is a great song,but clearly to me not as good as "For The love Of God".

I love that song very much as well. Probably my #2 favorite guitar instrumental (followed by "Eruption" and countless Malmsteen tracks). It's very powerful, whereas CoD is very light and exciting.

But after seeing it visually, "Cliffs of Dover" secured its position in my heart forever. It's very fast, moreso than anything Yngwie could pull, without sacrificing expression or meaning. I think it's perfect in that sense.
