He is one of the reasons these great guitarists exist.
One of the best. Cannot belive he was not on the list. - PowerfultekinV5 Comments
Simply amazing. He brings blues jazz flamenco rockabilly folk and rock together unlike anyone else
Created a unique instantly recognisable sound. Wrote some iconic songs. Played blistering beautiful pin-perfect solos against a sparse background. Simply awesome.

One Of the most fastest guitar player ever produced in Malaysia
TOP 10 guitarist easy every song primus has sounds like a solo from Larry... Primus has one of the most original sounds
Listen to the solos on Wynona's Big Brown Beaver, they are amazing. A truly amazing, yet crimanaly underrated guitarist.
I was looking for Andrew York, but couldn't find him. Malkmus is underrated though. He needs more praise.
Young boy 19 years old from Kuwait play some great stuff
And he play in the band calls DETHRONE
The first time I know there are heavy metal band from Kuwait
It's very good to know that
Tony MacAlpine (born August 29, 1960 in Springfield, Massachusetts) is a guitar and keyboard virtuoso who came on to the neo classical/shred scene in the mid 80s. He later experimented with jazz rock fusion and combined it with his classical training, as can be heard on Chromaticity (2001). He has released many solo albums in his career. Some of his other projects include CAB, Planet X, Steve Vai and Ring of Fire. - harrykarV1 Comment
Ridiculous that an icon that several generations of both male and female guitar players have been trying to emulate (and can't) sits at 420. As said, her unique turnings were a virtual re-inventing of the instrument. If you don't know and admire Joni as a legend, you just don't know iconic music. Sad.
Underappreciated guitar player... Invented numerous tunings... Technically superb player with amazing creativity... Solid chops on the ax - LateBloom
I lost an hour of my day trying to find her. An influence to so many guitarists such as Slash or Gilmour.
Continuing jazz fusion genre with brilliant style, sound and amazing sweep picking and ability to go from 0-100 faster than anyone
Possibly better than Andy Mckee, but it's like comparing a Mazerati to a Porsche... It's all great. Technically SUPERB. - LateBloom
He's way lower on the list than he should be.
Versatile, more than a guitarist, also a bassist, keyboardist, vocalist, songwriter, and arranger... And apparently began life as a classical violinists... How he can not even be on this list, but even below the likes of any of the definitely Leppard guitarists is beyond me.
