Who, in your opinion, is next in line as the next great guitar player? I mean household name, take the world by storm guitar player. Are they signed, unsigned, young, old? Discuss.
Yes. I cannot believe there was a time when every song had to have a guitar solo in it. Thank god that is over.The world today isn't looking for a guitar 'hero', and probably wouldn't shine a light on any likely candidate. There is still good guitar-based music to find; it's just not the dominating music of the day.
John Mayer. He is a pretty household name and a generation or two of kids have picked up the guitar because of him (and Taylor Swift).Has there been an actual household name guitar god since Hendrix? Maybe Eddie Van Halen. But beyond that..... most "guitar gods" that we think of are still only known in the guitar community.
