Useful Notes / Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/100_greatest_guitarists.jpeg

Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. First published in 2003, a new list was reissued in 2011, this time considering more female guitarists and adding more British artists, after the original was criticized for over-representing American artists. The new list also consulted a panel of guitarists and musicians, instead of merely listing magazine editor David Fricke's favorites.

Artists not listed on TV Tropes will be in Red Markup. However, some guitarists may only be known in their respective bands, and thus might not have their own trope pages; some of the blue links may also be redirects to their band's page. Please do not redirect them to their band pages; otherwise, the bands themselves will be added to this index, and we wish to keep guitarists and bands separate.
