    I think what makes Adrian and Davey special as a tandem is their childhood bond. Adrian bought his first guitar from Dave and they played in a band together as teenagers. I love how each of them has such a distinct voice on guitar, but when they play harmony lines, it's seamless and they sound like one instrument.

    IMO, no other guitar tandem in the history of rock comes close.

    I agree 100%. They are so unique IMO. To this day, I still love to play along with Maiden songs. (I 90% play Adrian's parts, always liked his solos a little more, but love both of them).
    So many of their songs are so amazing because of the 2 of them together.

    Stephen Stills and Chris Hillman from Manassas. Hillmans not a well known name but those two together sounded great!

    Fripp and Summers did a couple albums. Some of the cuts were very good even if this video is really bad.

    It's not rock music and I suspect that here they aren't very well known, but at least for their abilities as composers I seriously think that Garoto (Aníbal Augusto Sardinha) and Valzinho (Norival Carlos Teixeira) who played together in the same band for some year are the best I've ever heard.

    after that:
    Django Reinhardt and Pierre "Baro" Ferret
    Joe Diorio and Mick Goodrick (but I'm not sure if I can count them, after all they just made an album together)
    Duane Allman and Dickey Betts
    Jeff Cotton and Bill Harkleroad
    Bert Jansch and John Renbourn
    James Hetfield and Dave Mustaine

    My favorites in no particular order:

    Chuck and Al - moe.
    Marc Ford and Rich Robinson - TBC
    Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir - GD
    Michael Bruce and Glen Buxton - Alice Cooper
    Angus and Malcolm Young - AC/DC
    Stone Gossard and Mike McCready - PJ
    Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer - Oasis
    Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss - Umphrey's McGee
    Mick Taylor and Keith Richards - Stones

    I based it on either both guitarist having serious chops or when the rhythm player adds something extremely unique to the band that is hard to replace (such as Malcolm and Bob).
