    I think most people would probably say that Gilmour is a better guitarist from a technical stand point. However what Hendrix brought to the table was pretty much unheard of in the 60s. By today's standards he probably wouldn't be considered an especially amazing guitarist if he was just starting out. Having said this, I find it easier to play Gilmour's solos than Hendrix's.
