    In the sixtes I`d go with Clapton (Creams live live stuff is great) . From the seventies on (Jeff)Beck is my pick [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Jeff Beck blows Clapton away...Beck is very unique in his technique

    technically, especially these days, Beck is worlds away from Clapton however, Clapton breaks through on an emotional level that Beck sometimes misses in his efforts to stretch the technique of guitar playing...I enjoy both, but I can't listen to Beck for the extended periods of time that I can Clapton...I my mind Clapton is at his peak, Cream era and Derek/Dominoes....the Derek box set has a cd with 5 instrumental jams on it each 15-20 minutes in length where Clapton is all over it...D. Allman is getting off as well...

    I have a vid of Jeff Beck with Jon Bon Jovi cutting tracks in the studio.

    Beck is as awsome and as unique as they come.

    Jeff Beck can kick Clapton's ass any day of the week. I'll take Wired or Blow by Blow over Cream or Derek and the Dominos any day. And besides, Clapton sold out long ago, while Beck continues to make kick-ass guitar records. Clapton needs to shut up and play play his guitar these days. His last album made me cringe... the lyrics were sickening. And the Riding With the King one was hugely overhyped, IMO. He needs to do less singing and more not-singing on his records. A man of his talent should play the shit out of his instrument, not act like a friggin' wussy.

    fuck how good you can play

    Clapton is the king and Beck is the serf

    come on people!
    WTF has Jeff Beck done in the last 25 years? NOTHING!-except piss and moan.

    if this was a pissing and moaning contest then Jeff Beck would win.

    But Clapton is the bigger draw, has more hits, has more awards, more respect.

    that's how I see it

    I'm a horrible guitar player; can't play for shit.

    But Jeff Beck is quite possibly the most underrated guitarist of the last 50 years, IMO. His stuff is always fresh sounding and adventurous, unlike Clapton, who's close to pop-rock in comparison.

    The way they approach the guitar are complete opposite ends of the blues spectrum. Beck is trying to push the envelope as far as he can, Clapton is trying to dig as far into the roots of blues that he can. Both of them are extremely inspiring guitar players.

    To quote the mighty Majestic.

    This is an apples-and-oranges situation. Kinda like an Eddie vs Yngwie comparison. Technique is a language that musicians understand. Musicality is a language "people" understand. To understand both ends of the spectrum will bring forth legend status.
    IMHO:
    Technique is literally skin-deep.
    Musicality runs to the bone.
    True talent is a whole lot of both.

    Well, that's not really a good way to judge greatness to me. "Chubby McGoo and the Guys Who Aren't Slash" sold out the Garden recently didn't they.
