Top Ten Christian Guitarists


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Jason Truby

Amazing guitarist! Look up his rendition of Carol of the Bells on YouTube. Watch and learn.

42Ariel Pozzo
43Brian "Head" Welch (Love and Death)
44Brandon Hampton
45Herbie Langhans (Seventh Avenue)

Like Tommy Johansson, this man can play guitar just as well as he can sing. Since the 2000s, he has occupied the top position in both respects (just listen to his shredding on the Storm instrumentals and his vocals on basically every song since the Between the World's Album)

46Glenn Kaiser

Lead vocalist and guitarist for the legendary Resurrection Band. Pioneers in Christian metal (1972-2000). After the Resurrection Band broke up, Glenn Kaiser continued his musical career with a solo project known as the Glenn Kaiser Band. This band has been playing Christian blues rock and is a favorite at Cornerstone Festival.

Not the most flash, but love the expression of his playing. Glenn will always be one of my favorites! I think he is a solid 5 on my list!

47Drew Shirley (Switchfoot)

Duh! He's The Guitarist Of Switchfoot! The Whole Band Admits That He's The Best At His Instrument. But I Don't Wanna Sound As If I'm Disregarding Jon, Because He Is Still A Good Guitar Player.

48Ian Arkley (Seventh Angel)
49Rob Tahan (Ashes Remain)

Rob is an incredible guitarist! He not only does solos during concerts, but he incorporates sweeping and shredding in AR's songs. I don't know why he's not on this list yet.

Voters listen to All Your Faces - Ashes Remain Orgasmic For Ears
Rob deserves higher

51Jani Stefanovic (Divinefire, Miseration)

Awesome 8 string complex metal brutality and the ability to orchestrate whole songs, program drums, and do key/synth parts. That's just to awesome to not vote for.

52Shane Blay (Oh, Sleeper)

Shane has the heaviest, chaotic, and on the same time melodic metal out there! His lead guitar work touches perfektion, and he is a great guy. He may not be the fastest shredder but I think he might be the best overall metal guitarist out there... (Talking about his work in Oh, Sleeper only)

53Aaron Guerra (Tourniquet)

Listen to indulgence by proxy, microscopic view of a telescopic realm for proof he's the best and he sings

54Ole Arnold Børud (Ole Børud, Schaliach, Extol)

He is talented musician. He made Metal albums with Extol and Schaliach and also West Coast Jazz solo album. And the most of all, he do his music for the LORD.

55J.R. Bareis (Love and Death)

Awesome guitarist, vocalist and sold out for the Lord and he just turned 18.Joined Love and Death at age 15!

56Matthew Hoopes (Relient K)
57Val Allen (Theocracy)

Val Allen Wood is down here because hardly anyone knows Theocracy unfortunately. Listen to Theocracys album As the world bleeds and you'll know why having him down here is a mistake. I've been listening to guitarist like jimmy hendricks, Slash, Ben Kasica, Brian "Head"Welch, and the almighty Eddie Van Halen. I believe Val Allen Wood belongs in this list of the greatest guitarist this world has ever seen.

This guy Val Allen Wood has got to be amongst the greatest guitarist this world has ever seen. Val Allen Wood is down here because hardly anyone knows Theocracy (Best Band Ever) which is unfortunate because their extremely talented in every aspect of music. Listen to Theocracys album As the world bleeds and you'll put Val Allen Wood in your top 10.

Why the heck is this guy not in the top ten? The man is a wizard with his ax!

Alter to the Unknown God, Enough Said.
