A guitarist is a person who plays the guitar. Guitarists may play a variety of guitar family instruments such as classical guitars, acoustic guitars, electric guitars, bass guitars; some guitarists accompany themselves on the guitar by playing the harmonica. The guitarist may employ any of several methods for sounding the guitar, including finger picking, depending on the type of strings used, including strumming with the fingers, or a guitar pick made of bone, plastic, felt, leather, or paper, melodic flatpicking and finger-picking; the guitarist may employ various methods for selecting notes and chords, including fingering, the barre, and'bottleneck' or steel-guitar slides made of glass or metal. These left- and right-hand techniques may be intermixed in performance. Several magazines and websites have compiled what they intend as lists of the greatest guitarists—for example The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine, or 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Guitar World magazine.
Rolling Stone In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine published a list called The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. This list included 100 guitarists whom the magazine editor David Fricke considered the best, with a brief introduction for each of them; the first in this list is the American guitarist Jimi Hendrix introduced by Pete Townshend, guitarist for The Who, who was, in his turn, ranked at #50 in the list. In describing the list to readers, Paul MacInnes from British newspaper The Guardian wrote, "Surprisingly enough for an American magazine, the top 10 is fair jam-packed with Yanks," though he noted three exceptions in the top 10; the online magazine Blogcritics criticized the list for introducing some undeserving guitarists while forgetting some artists the writer considered more worthy, such as Johnny Marr, Al Di Meola, Phil Keaggy or John Petrucci. In 2011, Rolling Stone updated the list, which this time was chosen by a panel of guitarists and other experts with the top 5 consisting of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards and Jeff Beck.
Artists who had not been included in the previous list were added. Rory Gallagher, for example, was ranked in 57th place; the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time is mentioned in many biographies about artists who appear in the list. Guitar World Guitar World, a monthly music magazine devoted to the guitar published their list of 100 greatest guitarists in the book Guitar World Presents the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time from the Pages of Guitar World Magazine. Different from the Rolling Stone list, which listed guitarists in descending order, Guitar World divided guitarists by music genre—such as "Lords of Hard Rock" for hard rock artists or "Jazzmen" for jazz players. Despite the appearance in other magazines like Billboard, this publication by Guitar World was criticized for including no female musicians within its selection. However, Guitar World published a list of "Eight Amazing Female Acoustic Players," including Kaki King, Muriel Anderson and Sharon Isbin. TIME and others Following the death of Les Paul, TIME website presented their list of 10 greatest artists in electric guitar.
As in Rolling Stone magazine's list, Jimi Hendrix was chosen as the greatest guitarist followed by Slash from Guns'N' Roses, B. B. King, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton. Gigwise.com, an online music magazine ranks Jimi Hendrix as the greatest guitarist followed by Jimmy Page, B. B. King, Keith Richards and Kirk Hammett. There are many classical guitarists listed as notable in their respective epochs. In recent decades, the most "notable classical and cross genre" guitarist was Paco de Lucía, one of the first flamenco guitarists to have crossed over into other genres of music such as classical and jazz. Richard Chapman and Eric Clapton, authors of Guitar: Music, Players, describe de Lucía as a "titanic figure in the world of flamenco guitar", Dennis Koster, author of Guitar Atlas, has referred to de Lucía as "one of history's greatest guitarists.".

The Misfits (album)
The Misfits box set is a box set of material by the horror punk band the Misfits, released in 1996 by Caroline Records. Packaged in a coffin-shaped, velvet-lined box, the set includes four compact discs covering most of the band's recorded material from the years when Glenn Danzig was their singer and songwriter, it includes a "Fiend Club" pin and a booklet containing photographs, song lyrics, a discography, a history of the band written by their photographer and associate Eerie Von. The exterior cover of the booklet was illustrated by artist Dave McKean; the four CDs of the set include all of the material written and recorded by the Misfits between 1977 and 1983. The first disc includes tracks from the compilation albums Misfits and Collection II; the second disc includes another compilation, Legacy of Brutality, as well as the albums Evilive and Earth A. D./Wolfs Blood. The third disc is composed of tracks recorded during the band's studio sessions, some of which had released on the "Bullet" and "Night of the Living Dead" singles but most of which had never before been released.
The fourth disc comprises the Static Age album, recorded in 1978 but had never before been released in its entirety. The album Walk Among Us was not included in the box set, as it was the only album to which Caroline Records did not hold distribution rights. Additionally the set omits three tracks from the Static Age sessions, recorded but were never mixed: "She", "Spinal Remains", "In the Doorway"; these tracks were mixed and included with Static Age when it was released as a separate album in 1997. Prior to the release of the box set most of the Misfits' material had been scattered amongst various albums, EPs, singles, many of which had gone out of print. There were numerous tracks, recorded during the band's active period from 1977 to 1983 but had never been released; the majority of their material had been issued by singer and songwriter Glenn Danzig's label Plan 9 Records. Danzig holds writing credits on all of the songs from these years, held the rights to the material through the label.
The one notable exception was the band's 1982 album Walk Among Us, released by the Slash Records subsidiary imprint Ruby Records. After the band's breakup in 1983 Danzig continued to issue Misfits material through Plan 9, including the studio album Earth A. D./Wolfs Blood, recorded prior to the breakup, the "Die, Die My Darling" single, the live album Evilive. He released the compilation album Legacy of Brutality in 1985, consisting of unreleased Misfits material on which he had overdubbed new guitar and bass tracks. Caroline Records released the compilation album Misfits in 1986. In 1986 Slash Records was sold to London Records, who distributed their releases in the United States through Warner Bros. Records and elsewhere through Mercury Records; this meant that the distribution rights to Walk Among Us were now in the hands of London and Mercury. Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, brothers and former Misfits members Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein were engaged in a number of legal battles with Glenn Danzig over writing credits on the Misfits' material, as well as the rights to the Misfits name and imagery.
These culminated in an out-of-court settlement in 1995 which allowed Only and Doyle to once again record and perform as the Misfits, sharing merchandising rights with Danzig. As a condition of the settlement Plan 9 Records was dissolved and Caroline Records acquired the distribution rights to all of the Misfits' material with the exception of Walk Among Us, still held by London and Mercury. Caroline promptly released Collection II; the Collection II title led the previous compilation, Misfits, to be more referred to as Collection I. The box set was released in 1996, collecting all of the material to which Caroline held distribution rights. To celebrate its release Generation Records in New York City held an in-store autograph signing with Jerry Only, former Misfits members Franché Coma, Jim Catania, Bobby Steele, newly recruited Michale Graves and Dr. Chud who would be part of the new Misfits lineup. All tracks written by Glenn Danzig except. Misfits discography

Horror punk is a music genre that mixes proto-gothic and punk rock sounds with morbid and violent imagery and lyrics, which are influenced by horror films or science fiction B-movies. The genre is similar to and sometimes overlaps with deathrock, although deathrock leans more towards an atmospheric gothic rock sound while horror punk leans towards a 1950s-influenced doo-wop and rockabilly sound. Horror punk music is more aggressive and melodic than deathrock; the Misfits and their first lead vocalist Glenn Danzig are recognized as the progenitors of horror punk. Bands like The Undead, Screaming Dead, The Damned, The Cramps, T. S. O. L, 45 Grave and Rosemary's Babies are considered old school horror punk bands. Horror punk is apolitical in comparison to other punk rock subgenres, although some songs do refer to political events, some artists like Jack Grisham and Michale Graves have espoused their own political views. Horror refers to a hybrid of horror punk and hardcore punk; the Misfits' 1983 album Earth A.
D. inaugurated this style and the bands Septic Death, The Banner, Integrity have been categorized into this subgenre. Gothic Punk Deathrock Gothic rock Hardcore punk Psychobilly Shock rock

AFI is an American rock band from Ukiah, formed in 1991. The band's lineup stabilized in 1998 with lead vocalist Davey Havok and backing vocalist Adam Carson, bassist Hunter Burgan, guitarist Jade Puget. Burgan and Puget play keyboards and contribute programming and backing vocals, while Havok and Carson are the sole remaining original members. A hardcore punk band, they have since delved into many genres, starting with horror punk and following through post-hardcore and emo into alternative rock and gothic rock. AFI has released ten studio albums, ten EPs, one live album and one DVD; the band first reached substantial commercial success with their fifth album, The Art of Drowning, which peaked at number 174 on the Billboard 200. They broke into the mainstream with their sixth, Sing the Sorrow, which peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 and remained on the chart for 51 weeks; the album was supported by popular singles "Girl's Not Grey" and "Silver and Cold", both of which peaked at number seven on America's Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart in 2003.
"The Leaving Song Pt. II" was released as a single, reaching number 16 on the chart. Sing the Sorrow was certified Platinum by the RIAA in 2006 and is AFI's best-selling release, having sold over 1.26 million copies as of September 2009. AFI's seventh album, Decemberunderground, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and featured the hit single "Miss Murder", which topped the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart and reached number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100. Another single, "Love Like Winter", reached number four on the Modern Rock Tracks chart; the album was certified Platinum by the RIAA in 2013.

Their latest release is The Missing Man EP from December 2018. While still in high school in Ukiah, Davey Havok, Mark Stopholese and Vic Chalker formed a band called AFI in November 1991.
While the meaning of the initialism "AFI" stems from the full title "A Fire Inside," band members have stated that the name originated from the titles "Asking for It" and "Anthems for Insubordinates." At the time, the band did not know. Stopholese suggested Adam Carson, who had a drum kit join the band. Stopholese learned guitar and Chalker learned bass, but Chalker was soon replaced by Geoff Kresge and AFI made its first EP in recording Dork with the now defunct band Loose Change, which included future AFI lead guitarist Jade Puget. AFI's beginnings were somewhat inauspicious, as Davey Havok laughed in a 1999 interview, "We were amazed that we got our shit together enough to put out a split 7-inch with Jade's band at the time."AFI disbanded when its members attended different colleges, one of, UC Berkeley where members of the band lived and practiced for a time in the basement of the Delta Chi fraternity house on Channing Way. Kresge moved to New York where he played with street punk band Blanks 77.
The members of the band decided to pursue playing in AFI full-time after enjoying an positive experience and enthusiastic crowd response at a reunion show at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, California, in 1993. Between 1993 and 1995, the band released several vinyl EPs independently, their first full-length, Answer That and Stay Fashionable was released July 4, 1995, on Wingnut Records, was produced by Tim Armstrong. The album featured fast and upbeat hardcore songs, with humorous lyrical themes, which are well-vocalized in songs such as "Nyquil", "Cereal Wars", "I Wanna Get a Mohawk"; the album's cover is a parody of the film Reservoir Dogs's promotional poster. The album title takes. Audio samples from both films/shows and European Vacation are featured in several of the album's tracks, namely "Don't Make Me Ill" and "High School Football Hero". AFI signed on to Dexter Holland of The Offspring's label, they would remain with the label until the release of the 336 EP. Around this time they coined the term'East Bay hardcore' to describe their genre of music.
In 1996, AFI released their second album, Very Proud of Ya. The songs "Cruise Control" and "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" from Very Proud of Ya were used in the 1996 independent film Mary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore, first screened in 1997 and featured Havok in a small role. Two songs from their previous album, "Yurf Rendenmein" and "Two of A Kind", were re-recorded for this album. After several tours in support of the album Very Proud of Ya, Kresge decided to leave the group, his spot was filled by Hunter Burgan for the remaining Very Proud of Ya tour dates. Burgan went on to help AFI record Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes and was invited to become the full-time bassist. Future AFI lead guitarist Jade Puget provided background vocals and additional guitar on Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes, with his name credited as'Jade "The Playah" Puget', making it the first album to feature all four current members of the band; the release of Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes is notable because AFI started to gather a larger following.
