Being a guitarist myself (which means nothing....just stating for the record) Robert Fripp has provided me with the most interesting, challenging, inspirational and diverse playing.
 
Of course, trying to learn any of his material is complicated by the fact that Robert does not play in standard tuning, so, I rarely attempt to figure out any of it....I just listen and enjoy it.

Latimer and Gilmour are my twin pillars of guitar playing, I'll give the edge to Latimer today.

Once you hit 50 (or is it 100????) posts you will be able to. Howe would be my second choice, followed by Gilmour, McLaughlin and Hackett.

Other: Steve Rothery!

Piotr Grudzinski is probably the best from the named ones. Many great guitarists here though, obviously,

Pretty much unarguably, Fripp has played more diverse electric guitar material than any of the other guitarists.
 
His acoustic guitar playing......not much...is there?? Anybody have a list of the songs that Fripp has played acoustic guitar on?? I can think of "Fallen Angel" from Red.

I've come to appreciate John McLaughlin over the past few years. More than simply fast, incredibly so, his work is diverse and his playing is quite intricate. He is equally adept at acoustic as he is with electric and has played in a lot of different styles. In other words, no one trick pony - he is highly versatile.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

Thanks. For some reason I can't recall hardly any Fripp acoustic guitar playing.

It's usually covered up by a ton of mellotron, flute, etc

Agree. I'm listening to his acoustic arrangement of "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" right now.

Yes, precisely.
 
Fripp doesn't have a "Mood for the Day" or "Horizons", or, you know, a signature acoustic piece. I wish he would release an all acoustic album. Thumbs Up
