The Top 50 Australian Guitarists Of All Time

Australian Guitar magazine has just published their list of the top 50 Aussie guitarists of all time. Check it out here! I write for the mag and I helped compile the list. A bunch of us each listed our picks, the results were tallied up, and I think it’s a pretty fair list – there aren’t really any crazy controversial picks like that recent Spin guitarists list! My criteria for my selections was pretty broad. Individuality, innovation, influence, songwriting… it all added up. Then my votes were combined with the others to come up with the final results.

There are some great players who I would like to have seen included, but many of them are featured in a separate article on page 59, such as Chris Brooks, Steve Turner and James Ryan.

What do you think of the list? Who do you think we should have included or excluded?
