21Rob Barrett
22Mark Tremonti

Creed restricted Tremonti's guitar ability with their use of only one guitar tune and their lack of solos, but on just about any Alter Bridge song, Mark and Myles Kennedy five headlong into a unique, beautiful, befitting solo and catchy riffs that almost speak as much as Myles' lyrics. Also, Mark's solo band, Tremonti, uses some great solos. I would recommend people listen to "Blackbird" by Alter Bridge and "You Waste Your Time" by Tremonti to familiarize themselves with Mark Tremonti's talent.

What is wrong with everybody?! Perhaps they are unfamiliar with Mark's guitaring but he shreds the axe better than anyone else this century except, perhaps, Synyster Gates. Mark is a great guitarist and his solo on "Blackbird" by Alter Bridge may be the best solo of the 21st century.

Guys I've heard all these guitarist play and some more that deserve to be on this list like Joe satriani n carlos santana but honestly from all these mentioned here it comes down to two guys:Mark tremonti and Synaster Gates from Alter Bridge and Avenged Sevenfold respectively so its up to you to choose what you'l want as number 1 from these two
