Famous Guitarist Biographies

We are fortunate to live in a time where we can be inspired by so many talented musicians. On this page we have listed some of the most famous guitarists in the world. Each of them bring their own unique talents to the instrument. We have an opportunity to be influenced by their sound and motivated by their success.

While this list is far from complete – it features some of our all time favorites. You can click on the names to learn more about each guitarist. Their individual pages include basic profile information about them as well as a more detailed biography.

We encourage you to explore this section and then look some of these players up on video websites like YouTube for modern examples of their playing. It’s a great way to get inspired before a practice session.
