    actually it totally depends on the kind of genre u like...
    rock,blues,jazz,metal,funk,pop...and the list goes on..its all a matter of tastes..
    most of the guys out here listen to rock hence those band and song choices ....
    its imp to listen to quality music...
    so if u like r&b..pop kind of stuff then here are a few artists u wanna check out
    whitney hoeusten-all the older albums of hers
    mariah carey-hero
    elton john-all the older albums
    avril lavigne(she in my book counts as pop)-the newer album ..check out nobodys home..the acoustic live version..ull find that song for free in
    lionel richie-older stuff again
    ..and the other songs which nebu has recommended are pretty cool..check them out ...
    and no offence meant...plz dont listen to bands or singers who dont play or sing live..backstreet boys and most of the boy bands just lip sync durin a live performance..

    dude .. the list can keep going on n on ..
    but here's my take on this one ..
    you dont know rock unless you know classics like these

    Led Zeppelin : If you dont know them ... dont even think you listen to ROCK ... n i
    'm sure everyone here will agree ...

    Beatles : A little bit of them never hurts

    Eagles : They're geniuses .. n there stuff is a must.

    Rolling Stones: C'mon there's no getting around them ....

    Aerosmith : Legends in their own right ....

    Pink Floyd : There's no song like comfortably numb ... just ain't there ...

    Black Sabbath: DO NOT ignore their stuff ... its cult classic stuff

    n finally ...
    AC/DC : if nothing else .... listen to black in black n tell me if you didn't fall in
    I consider the next two bands to come under the classic category .. simply for the effect they had on rock in such a short existence ...

    Guns N roses : i'm a total GNR freak .... can't leave em outta any list

    Nirvana : They changed the nature of rock with one album... just like GNR

    Once you get past these .... ( and i mean atleast get to know a few songs each dude) ... youre into rock ..
    now you can get into categories n stuff ... but a few bands stand out ...

    iron maiden
    U2 ( not the same kind but a stand outr band nevertheless)
    dire straits ( some may say theyre classic rock... could be)
    deep purple

    thats what id begin with .... though i started on bryan adams n bon jovi too .. n i still listen to them ...
    dude get this right ... listen to what you like n not whats cool or what youre suposed to like ... doint force yourself into rock .... you might not like it ... it'll simply come to you eventually ... i for one stuck to soft rock for years before getting in ... n i still appreciate BA n all as much ... music after all is for your pleasure .. not to impress others ....

    a confession ... i still am not into dire straits ... sultans of swing seems to grow on me ... but it still hasn't had that effect on me ... so go by what feels good to you ... n not what the charts n history says .....

    well to develop a taste for rock (and other english stuff)

    listen to simon and garfunkel and cliff richards. here u will be able to feel the real guitaring. i mean to say that these are the real classics.......the old ones. the beatles....

    then go on to deep purple

    followed by scorpions, EUROPE (these 2 are my favourites)listen to old songs of Europe. they are difficult to get in the market now though...... especially the songs Superstitious, Cherokee, etc

    and yes then there is Judas Priest, eric clapton, santana (u guys forgot his name in the list of musts to be heard. he is a god of guitar and u cant ignore him......chaps)

    i wont mention the other bands because everyone else mentioned them earlier, and i dont wanna repeat what everyone said.

    then go on to satriani and steve vai. they r too good......

    hey guuys ......

    just thinking of this list from here.........

    who do u think are the gods of guitaring???????????

    i would call santana, clapton and satriani/steve vai to be the Lord Brahma of guitaring....

    what do u folks have to say???????

    hey pacific those guys are the ones who are popular...there are so many underground guitar players who will kick claptons or santanas a*se...
    actually most of claptons newer stuff sucks...and santana i feel is only above average..tho he has some really melodic stuff..
    satriani and steve vai are virtuosos...they are cool but the guys who play for the song in a band can never be left out...

    well dimebag,

    u r right. i do agree with you. there are some guitarists who never get to see the light of the day even if they r better.

    what i meant by lord brahma of guitaring was that steve vai/joe satriani have a different kind of music, same with clapton and by saying lord brahma i meant that these guys are gods in their style of guitaring and if we want 1 god then it has to be a combination of these 3. so i said that these 3 combine to formn the lord brahma of guitaring.

    and yes as far as hindu mythology goes. there are many other gods other than lord brahma!!!!!!!!!!!

    so we can put these guitarists in that category

    what say!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-)
    Keep on walking the road and I follow,
    Keep on calling my name I'll be there
