61Jonny GreenwoodJonathan Richard Guy, professionally known as Johnny Greenwood is an English musician and composer, mostly known for his role as the one of the lead guitarists and main keyboardist of the English alternative rock band Radiohead.

Radiohead guitarist and easily one of the best if you've heard him play.

63Frank ZappaFrank Vincent Zappa was an American musician, songwriter, composer, record producer, actor and filmmaker.

No guitarist list is complete (or accurate) with the omission of Frank

64Peter Green

Another great British blues player one of the founders of Fleetwood Mac

Playing with that subtile feeling, he outmasters the king of blues, B.B. King. He belongs in the upper quarter to my opinion.

66Dave MurrayDavid Michael Murray is an English guitarist and songwriter best known as one of the earliest members of the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden.

iron maiden guitarist, the greatest heavy metal band in history. -

Why does iron maiden have 3 guitarrists when murray is better then the 3 of them combined? Definitely dave murray deserves more credit for his mindblowing solos!

67Tomo Miličević
68Seth Morrison
69Mick Mars

Motley Crue guitarist... One of the best ones ever!

Master of the bend. Interesting...knows when to play fast on a slow song (No One Like You, Still Loving You) and slow on a fast song (Dynamite). Great feel. Great power. Great...everything

76Ray ToroRaymond "Ray" Toro is an American musician who served as lead guitarist and backing vocalist of the band My Chemical Romance until their split in 2013.

Ray all the way! My Chemical Romance wouldn't have been the same without him. I personally think he deserves to be higher than Frank Iero, but they're both amazing guitarists.

Never seen someone put so much passion and dedication into a song. The Fro is supreme!

77Murray Cook
78Mick Thompson

Best band in the world. Slipknot

79Rick Nielsen

Massively underrated guitarist. Like a demented cross between Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend - great tone and power.

80Steve Clark

Definitely Leppard professional Guitarist should be in the top 10. He was the 2nd best guitarist of the 1980's. He totally beats Slash. Not that I dislike him, but just saying. Steve is better.
