81Marcelo Poggi
82Roy Z
83Patrick Judge (Demon Hunter)

Definitely one of the best guitarists in the scene today. Anyone who can go between the relentless guitar work on tracks like 'Just Breathe' and play an equally powerful solo in a ballad like 'Dead Flowers' deserves some serious credit.

84Troy Thompson (Bride)
85Dana Key (Degarmo and Key)

Great hooks. Solid, unassuming style and musically satisfying.

86Hedras Ramos

Hedras Ramos is a Christian virtuoso young player who was won top prizes at world wide competitions like Guitar Idol in London, UK and also Ziua Chitarelor in Bucharest, Romania, when he was only 17 and 18 years old. He currently has launched 3 instrumental rock guitar albums.

Hedras Ramos also took over the the guitar work of the newest album of Heavy Metal for British actor Sir Christopher Lee (Lord of the rings, Dracula, Star Wars and 280+ movies), when his former guitarist Richie Faulkner left the album project to join the well known band JUDAS PRIEST.

Hedras is a self-taught guitarist inspired by players like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Guthrie Govan and many great Jazz and Fusion players and classic piano as well.

With no doubt Hedras is in the top of the list of Christian guitarists with more achievements and virtuosity in the category of guitar player of 20 years of age, both Christian and secular!

87Jukka Tolonen
88John Eargle Supernal Endgame
89Chris Rohman (Sanctus Real)

Not an "80's" shredder by any means but definitely one of the most brilliant and unique players when it comes to just creating beautiful hooks and melodies on the instrument. Also one of the most passionate live performers you'll find.

90Pete Prevost (Sanctus Real)
91Brian Belew (Barnabas)
92Dave Beegle (Fourth Estate)
93Gem Gabriel
94Brook Sloan

He is an awesome guitarist from the now disbanded "cry in the desert" Christian rock band

95Jonathan Steingard

I think he,s excellent, causes his guitar to almost talk.

He Is Really Good, He Really Is. But He Doesn't Get To Show Off Regularly Because =HN's= Style Isn't Full Of Face Melting Solo's.

96Josh Wilson

His rendition of Amazing Grace is reminiscent of Phil Keaggy.

97Matt Maher

Be worship artist legend, many musicians don't have the instrumental artwork Matt has. He has a rock based genre of his own. Also, being a music teacher, he has the musical as well as social leadership skills to work together with a band successfully!

98Christopher Parkening

Segovia hailed Parkening as "a great artist" and "one of the most brilliant guitarists in the world." If you don't know who Segovia is, look him up. Y'all are so stuck on rock guitar here, you're forgetting that there may be other (more valid? ) approaches to the instrument. Broaden your minds.

99Allen Collins (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

Lynyrd Skynyrd at Knebworth 1976 concert were opening for the Rolling Stones and blew them off stage. A testament to the bands greatness and the skill of Allen Collins. RIP man

Ohhh no! How come no one has remembered Allen Collins. I know for a fact that all of Lynyrd Skynyrd (original band) were all believers. Including the legendary Allen Collins who would wipe the floor with all these nobodys :P go check out Free Bird!

Yes he was great,but he isn't as good as SEVERAL players on this list

100Stevie Ray VaughanStephen "Stevie" Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990) was an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer. In spite of a short-lived mainstream career spanning seven years, he is widely considered one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of music, and ...read more.

Great to hear that he accepted Jesus Christ! Love to listen to Stevie play the blues!

He was a great guitarist, and a great person.

Didn't find this out till recently, but SRV was actually a Cheistian. Gave his life to Jesus and God helped him kick his drug addiction
