Top Ten Christian Guitarists


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Jonny Lang

Jonny Lang is a 76... Really? I'm a working musician and it's hard to take this list seriously. However the Phil Keaggy rating is pretty fair.

62Kerry Livgren

Agreed! Should be higher in the list. Plays multiple instruments and fantastic songwriter!

63Stu Heiss

Stu Heiss invented the genre of "Christian Rock Guitarist". Listen to DMZ or Live Bootleg and get schooled!

64Dave MustaineDavid Scott "Dave" Mustaine was born September 13, 1961. He is an American musician, singer, songwriter, actor and author. He is best known as the co-founder, guitarist, and lead singer of the American thrash metal band Megadeth, and well known as the original lead guitarist for the American heavy metal more.

Dave is not just a great guitarist, he understands Christianity, and the need to forgive his adversaries. He went back to his former Metallica band mates and forgave them. He also forgave his now bassist, David Ellefson. He was at war with these people, but they are not his friends. A true sign of his Christianity.

65Lanny Cordola

Amazing! "Electric Warrior-Acoustic Saint" one of my favorites productions of all times.

66Hadley Hockensmith

Now we are moving to somewhat outside the box that the all previous are closing in. This fellow is the guitarist of the former Koinonia and you should check his work in youtube. All Keaggy fans must know Hadley.

He made his mark with the late Keith Green and also with the first Christian Jazz band Koinoia His style is amazing!

67Ulf Christiansson (Jerusalem)
68Michael Cutting (Holy Soldier)
69Jamie Cramer (Holy Soldier)
70Buddy Miller
71Neal Morse
72Dee Harrington (Saint)
73John Mahan (Saint)
74Michael Guy Chislett
75Johnny Markin

Should be in the top ten for guitar playing, and he loves Jesus!

Amazingly gifted worship leader

Incredible musician and really rocks a banjo

76W. Avery Howard

Fantastic guitarist, and he can play about any style out there. Avery had a group called the Kingdom Heirs (not the group at Dollywood), he not only plays guitar but also sings.

79Larry Farkas (Vengeance Rising/Die Happy)
