The Top TenXW

1John PetrucciJohn Peter Petrucci is an American guitarist, composer and producer. He is best known as a founding member of the progressive metal band Dream Theater.

His ways of composing is truly extraordinary. I think Music is based on composing rather than speed or anything else

Surrounded from his Dream Theater fellows, he plays whatever a guitar has to give. THANK YOU!

Petrucci rules! His solo work on Suspended Animation as well as his amazing work with Dream Theather and LTE is an inspiration to any guitarist. His technical proficiency remains unmatched and he should definitely be at the top.

2Steve VaiSteven Siro "Steve" Vai is an American guitarist, composer, singer, songwriter, and producer, born and raised on Long Island, New York.

I've heard people emulate satch, petrucci, malmsteen and just about everyone els, but I've never heard anyone come close to sounding like vai. He's got a voice all his own in a world of guitarists who are great but not even close to his distinct and creative approach to the instrument. he's in a class all his own.

I love his style. Sounds amazing and hard. His technical proficiency remains unmatched and he should definitely be at the top.

3Joe Satriani

Satch is Awesome! Melodic songs very technical emotional solos in my books it's a battle between Steve Vai Eric Johnson And Joe Satriani.
Coincidentally they were on the same G3 tour - bysonman

Well, he's in every G3 and he is the one organizes everything. Plus he's a boss.

His tone is amazing. His solos are perfect every time, not overstated.

4Yngwie MalmsteenYngwie Johan Malmsteen is a Swedish guitarist, songwriter and bandleader who was born on June 30th, 1963, in Stockholm, Sweden. He was known for his neoclassical metal playing style back in the 1980s.

I really love the top six of this list very much! Especially Steve vai, Joe satriani, and Slash! Great... Great... Dudes! I can definitely agree with the number one guitarist however! Yngwie, the most technically gifted guitar player in the world to date! May this living legend continue to thrive in his throne creating more bone chilling neo-classical speed metal! Long live Yngwie Malmsteen!

I am your loyal fan my insprier like you till my last breathe

I don´┐Ż't think Malmsteen should be number one. Although he initiated an era, his solos are always the same, and 90% of his songs are always built on the same commercial pattern. A better version of him would be Michael Angelo or even Kiko Loureiro (his solos on the Angels Cry album).

5Michael Schenker

Best of the 70s and 80s and still hold his own. Can make a melidic scale last for what seems like 48 frets!

6Paul Gilbert

Great player, great attitude towards his talent (not at all a show off)! Combination of his technique is fantastic, using alternative picking as well as hummer-ons and pull-offs. speed metal god - paul gilbert!

7Eric JohnsonEric Johnson (born August 17, 1954) is an American guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist from Austin, Texas. Best known for his electric guitar skills, Johnson is also a highly proficient acoustic, lap steel, resonator, and bass guitarist as well as an accomplished pianist and vocalist.

I love his song cliffs of dover, sounds amazing and hard - GtrShredder

I believe he is the best, but how would you even prove that, everybody that listens to anything has a different taste.
