41Matt Tuck (Bullet for My Valentine)

Some of the greatest rhythm playing I've ever seen. rapid fast downpicking and some his parts seem nearly impossible to play and sing yet he does it with ease.

Yes a very Underrated artist here. Rhcp became lame after his departing. Check out his solos albums. Awesome. Sings good too. John is better without rhcp.

The complexity of both the things he plays on guitar as well as his vocals is sometimes out of this world... Should be much higher!

Go see him live and you will agree

48Brad Paisley

Perfect mix of country and rock. Regardless of whether you like country music, listen to his solos and instrumentals and tell me you're not wowed (I recommend 'Nervous Breakdown').
