Neo-classical guitarists are underrated as a whole, as "greatest guitarist" lists are always dominated by blues-based players. As neo-classical players go, Yngwie is among the best of them, and it was Yngwie who really turned neo-classical metal into a genre in it's own right, taking the classically influenced rock of Ritchie Blackmore and Uli Jon Roth onto the next level. If you don't play guitar, you most likely haven't heard of Malmsteen. If you do play guitar and you haven't, you most likely aren't very good.
Steve can make Slash pee himself.
I've seen a lot of websites stating Vai and Satch being one of the most overrated guitarists there are. I think those people are having too much baloney in their diets. Or they are just jealous. This guy is a virtuoso already and that rank is so hard to achieve in present days. Judge Steve VAi after you've proven yourself worthy of the virtuoso title alright?
he is amazing at guitar, just listen to most sum 41 songs.
Cant believe The Greatest Guitarist list put him on #64. HES THE BEST!
Everything he plays is absolutely perfect! Every Coldplay song that uses Johnny Boy is a good one
He could easily be marked as one of those "thoughtful" players, but man, does he have some amazing skill!
He was a VERY early guitarist in 30s and 40s even before Chuck Berry and is quite underrated.
Hear any of his old stuff from jag panzer. He's way better than mustaine he just doesn't get a chance to show his skill. His seven string tapping solos are amazing
Both Adrian Smith and Dave Murry I think are both better guitarists but Janick is the coolest. The way he performs on stage is just so fun and cool to watch.
Anyone who listens to Dragonforce should know that Sam is amazing, easily as good as Herman, but to many people are obsessed with Li being Asian and crap. Mustain is not underrated he is one of the most revered guitarists ever.
I always hear about how good Herman Li is but never about Sam. He is the band's song writer for crying out loud! He is so good and yet he never got enough respect as a musician.
So David Mustain is underrated, but Dan Donegan isn't?
I don't understand the people, what is wrong wit you?
greatest classic guitarist ever! LEARN TO RESPECT ALL GENRES NOT JUST ROCK AND METAL!
