Never liked the term best in a discussion like this but my favorite is Buddy Guy.

I have never really cared for many traditional blues guitarists. Very often they use the same "phrases" in their guitar playing. B.B. King in particular. Now some of the other blues based pop/rock guitarists...

I just got Joe Bonamassa's Black Rock album. What a treat. Really nice rock/blues guitar. I think I have three of his albums but this one is really good. Reminds me a bit of Cream phase Clapton and even some Eric Johnson. Throw out ALL your John Mayer and most of your Kenny Wayne Shepard and get some Joe Bonamassa.
All things must pass

I agree....they're all great in their own way. May have to give the nod to RJ though since he's really the considered the first true bluesman.

For me, that would have to be the one and only Mr. B.B. King.

While all are great, I had to go with Robert Johnson, the father of modern guitarists.

Surprised Muddy Waters, Father of Chicago Blues is not on the list but, good list.
