Calling ALL guitar fans! Total Guitar magazine needs you to tell us who is your guitarist of the year 2021. 

Take a look below where we’ve compiled a long list of some of the players who have wowed us this year, and simply check the box next to your favourite to vote for them. 

We know what you're thinking... "No Jimi Hendrix? No David Gilmour? No [INSERT ROCK GOD OF CHOICE]?" Well, no, not this time. Our focus here is on guitarists who have released new material this year. 

Still, you can vote for more than one guitarist, and if we’ve missed your favourite off the list you can nominate your own personal choice in the ‘Other’ box at the bottom. 

Every vote counts – and we WILL count every vote! We'll reveal the results in issue 353 of Total Guitar magazine (on sale in the UK 17 December 2021) and here on

Happy voting!
