22Gary Hoey

Gary Hoey is a guitar god. He can play any tune and rock it!

23Shawn Lane

Just listen to 'Get You Back' or 'The Way it Has to Be' and you'll understand why he is the best. The amount of emotion the man put in his work was unreal. You'll be missed.R.I.P.

25Andres Segovia
26Al Di Meola

There have probably not been 5 guitar players ever with more talent

Although his DD material was fantastic he was lumped into the glam band genre and never got the credit he deserved. Pick up any Pawn Kings, ATB record and give a listen, pure genius. Moreover he is a great guy that is humble and more than willing to share his knowledge. Watch he and Satch have a duel on You Tube and you will know the truth about AT!
