This thread is a comprehensive list of profession guitarists. You can add to the list at any time, as long as all additions meet the following requirement!

The requirements to be on the list (to exclude people who play guitar but at a very limited level) are as follows:

1. The musician must have at least one professional album released internationally.

2. The musician must have released at least one album in their career that was solo - in otherwords they are the featured artist in the music.

3. The musicians must generally use chords, arpeggios, and scales in their guitar playing.

Those are the only requirements! I want to see the network of known guitarists out there, because I don't know of most of them...
