He uses such a wide a array of scales and modes in an unbelievable way! Just listen to the solos in Valley of Souls, Coloreas Mi Vida and Lovesorrow. Plus, he can also play very different styles of music, with the thrash metal solo in Tornado of Souls.

Just listen with his 2-3 notes every one can understand that this is Marty! That's the best thing about him... Please listen : Brightest star of all, Melodic control ending solo, Namida, Or black cat by him

26Rory GallagherWilliam Rory Gallagher was an Irish blues and rock multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and bandleader.

Rory Gallagher must be in this list (actually by far on the top). If you never listened to him carefully. Give it a try and probably you will redefine what is feeling and expression from a musicians perspective...

30Steve VaiSteven Siro "Steve" Vai is an American guitarist, composer, singer, songwriter, and producer, born and raised on Long Island, New York.

For the love of God is the most gut felt emotional pieces ever written. Vai is heaven on earth.

I Think he is the best for Whispering a prayer and for the love of God. Awesome music...

Do you see the expression of Vai's face when he plays? Stop underrating him so much!

Just listen to whispering a prayer and try not to get goosebumps!

35Jerry CantrellJerry Fulton Cantrell Jr. is an American musician who is best known as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and main songwriter for the rock band Alice in Chains.

He defines what "feel" is for me. Classic Alice in Chains songs like Nutshell, Rain When I Die and Love, Hate, Love sound like his soul screaming through his guitar. Even his solo material is incredible just listen to My Song, Spiderbite and Anger Rising. Massively overlooked when it comes to the greatest guitar players.

39John SykesJohn James Sykes is an English rock guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter who has played with Streetfighter, Tygers of Pan Tang, John Sloman's Badlands, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, and Blue Murder.

Come on, how did John Sykes not make the list? Have a listen and decide for yourself. :-)

40Eric JohnsonEric Johnson (born August 17, 1954) is an American guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist from Austin, Texas. Best known for his electric guitar skills, Johnson is also a highly proficient acoustic, lap steel, resonator, and bass guitarist as well as an accomplished pianist and vocalist.

Check out his "Venus Isle" album(Lonely in the night, and Manhattan are highly recommended). This guy puts his all of his soul into his musicianship. Even though a lot of his music does contain complex solos, if one listens carefully there is a detail for emotion in almost every single note. His compositions are also of top notch quality, and he has his own distinct style, developed over a 40 year long musical career.
