I suppose it's already covered, I'm just gonna add one little slice then for me personally...I'm usually willing to overlook the "has great tone" element if a player knocks it out of the park in most other areas.
One who is confident on stage, can get the job done and can make the guitar talk appropriately for the song being played. Doesn’t have to be a shredder IMO...many times less is more!
Sober, not into themselves and the proper volume!
IMO, someone who can be world class and do as they're told.
Andres Segovia was the best of the best................but to play with him, I think you had to cater to his style.
I recall David Crosby being amazed that Steve Lukather did pro a solo on a Crosby song without previously hearing or practicing the tune.
I dont know any complete guitarist in its fullest sense.
Even Malmsteen sucks in the classical guitar tone department when you put him beside John Williams, Christoper Parkening...
But I think that a person can be complete in a genre.
Like this guy:
I heard this yesterday. He’s Playing a Billy Joel gem on the guitar-brilliant! I want to learn this one.
that would be the skills of a musician not so much of a guitarist.
But of an outstanding mount Olympus musician.
not that far out of reach.
Larry Carlton, G.E. Smith, guys that can play anything put in front of them as well as improvise and write original pieces.
It seems that session musicians are the most complete.
Unpretentious; you know his playing by just one note.
BB is a favorite:
It’s mostly about the ability to compose and play the compositions with feeling , there are thousands of guitarists that are technically Better than Jimmy Page for example that haven’t written a half decent tune between them .
Reading this thread reminds me of why I suck.
No one sucks.
There's only some that are more prepared.
I think having all of your digits helps to make you a complete guitarist. At least on your fretboard hand.
