Under A Glass Moon alone is enough to beat everyone else on this list, let alone all of his masterpieces
Much better than some of the overrated items in this list.
Deserves to be in the top... most underrated guitarist - DM2414V1 Comment
this is the worst list I have ever seen... 14. kirk hammett and 20. joe satriani oh my god he is kirks teacher in addition jimmy page is 13. lol he must be in top ten and jimi should be the best not fourth.
Are you serious! Kirk Hammett must be in the TOP 5. Have you ever SAW HIM? He can play the guitar only with his left hand and you want talk about his sol... ! He made Metallica one of the best heavy metal bands OF THE WORLD... !
Come on kirk hammett must be on top ten, this guy is amazing...
Kirk hammett is number 1 in my eyesV5 Comments
For the love of... have you heard the hammer-ons in Potato Head? Satch is a virtuoso and everything he plays is with purpose and melodic grace. Should be higher.
Satch took what Hendrix started and expanded it to its limits. Between he and Vai, there's nothing they can't touch.
How did Kirk Hammett beat Satch? Didn't Satch take him under his wing and give him lessons?
True master and innovator of this instrument, should be in the top 10V11 Comments
Chuck Berry is a Guitar God.
With JB Goode, he founded Rock n Roll.
LOng live Chuck Berry.Happy Birthday!
As good as van Galen if not better. Never got the recognition he deserved for his incredible solo albums in the 80'sV2 Comments
Alright joke's over he should be #2 just behind Jimi Hendrix - ACDCRocks
Angus Young is a LEGEND. He should at least be in the top ten.

I'm sorry but I do not like Green Day, I may be the only one who thinks this, and get yelled at for saying this... But I truly believe they're overplayed on classic rock AND new music stations. They play them on every station, for music, on this planet! I get it people like them and all, but really, "Brain stew" Is a very overplayed song.
Not only can he make amazing guitar riffs, he can play so many other instruments! He revolutionized Punk in his era and still is. Not only with a pretty face and a voice to go with it, but his guitar trumps all.
Beast! Maybe not most talented with the instrument but he has amazing stage presence and can write sweet licks
Why is he down here? He's so awesome!V2 Comments
I'm so happy to see people remember this guy and for all you kids, the HEART riffs you are playing on GH1 and GH2, Barracuda-Crazy ON You, Thats pure Roger Fisher.
Let me say it one more time. From 1975 to 1979 Heart was one of the best bands ever in Rock and the lead guitar player was Fisher. Do you get my point?
His riffs are perfect. Not too much and never too little but instead a perfect placement of sound for every song.
Its about time people remember how great this man was, during the 70's, and the impact he had on rock music.V2 Comments
Frusciante may not come off as all that impressive but his technical skill and brilliant solos are unparalleled today. I emphasize today because I believe him to be one of if not the best guitarist of the last 20 or 30 years
Just my opinion.
his sound and style...just so different from everyone else.
John Frusciante is my guitar god! He is one of the best guitarists that we have today.V2 Comments
Why isn't Zakk in the top 10 of every one of these lists? Have you seen him play?
Zakk wylde behind the Green Day guitar player? Really man?
You all are f' en crazy Zakk Wilde is the greatest guitarist that ever lived. He should be number 1. Joe Bonnammosa would agree.V2 Comments
He should be closer to the top for sure! I saw him in concert and he really plays the blues!
The man who invented the heavy metal
He invented heavy metal with Black Sabbath. Pulling out songs with such heavy riffs and beautiful solos is really amazing. Guitar in is hands is like AK47. His best work can be found in songs like 'war pigs', 'heaven and hell', 'iron man', 'Paranoid', 'Black Sabbath'...V2 Comments
Kurt cobain I really admire you!
Kurt cobain is the best musician in the world I love him!V6 Comments
The greatest all time innovative guitarist to come out of the UK. Such a distinctive style and sound which is most important. Many guitarists have a similar sound and tone to others. This guy got me hooked on the sound of the guitar from a young age and I have tried to find others in a similar vein to no avail and I own over 2000 rock/metal CD's and have followed the scene since the mid 80's. A totally under estimated guitarist in my opinion. Long live The Cult.
The greatest riff-writer ever. Billy Duffy is the greatest British guitarist ever, and if you don't believe me, buy 'Sonic Temple'. Duffy writes amazing riffs and solos, and although he's got blinding speed, he knows how to use it with economy. - Floods
Truly amazing it is a shame he didn't get much exposure in the US. In England the Cult was number one for a decade.
Check out the track Love, play it loud!V1 Comment
Once again, should be listed high. also where is kurt hammet
Best guitarist ever what is he doing here
Nobody makes riffs like this guy. What people? Jimmy page, hendrix, blackmore, steve vai, satriani, pettruchi, dave, tremonti should be in top 10V2 Comments
