    None other than chootiya

    1. My Dear Friend, first of All this is not a list for best guitarists of India, may be u didn't read the heading properly. Fine. There are many amazing guitarist who are legends in their field like Amyt Dutta, Warren Mendonsa, Rudy Wallang etc. Keba is juts the Growing up. Yes he is amazing but not the best. These are the player whom most of people don't know. I guess you also. So how can they inspire a completely fresh mind? Think. Do a proper research my Dear.
      I personally saw many people started learning Guitar after watching Rockstar. I didn't see any person who wants to learn guitar bcoz he saw Kalyan playing.
      And Last but most important, If our point is right and proper, we don't need any bad or abusing word to use. Take Care. Get Well Soon. ;-)

  7. Nice list .. personally , I was born in 1961 and the band that inspired me to play the guitar was a surf rock group called the "Ventures" when I was about 8.. that was before we heard Jimi Hendrix play. My first Indian guitar hero was a guitarist from Calcutta by the name of Cyrus Tata ( Anand Shankar band ) followed by Babu ( 'People" ) .. Thought you might find an older perspective interesting. The "filmy" guitar hero of those days was a guy called "Tariq" ( Yadon ki Barat ) , but it was obvious even to a rank beginner that this guy couldnt play a note to save his own life : - ) ..Ranbir and Arjun Ramphal have atleast learnt to hold the instrument correctly and even their chord shapes are convincing : - )
