Seen Dokken live and George Lynch was on fire note for note also was at a guitar clinic that George Lynch put on very Talented. George knows his music theory like the back of his hand. Very Smart man great person to talk to.
Like Marty Friedman, George is one of the most technically sound and influentual talents behind the axe.V 1 Comment
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.
So David Mustain is underrated, but Dan Donegan isn't?
I don't understand the people, what is wrong wit you?
KG is one of the most imaginative, talented, and entertaining guitarists ever! Him on, an, acoustic is magical! Most others don't have, the grace or technique to rock it unplugged like he does!
he's an awesome amazing guiatarist and he is tight with jack jack black
Definitely one of the most under-appreciated guitarists out there. On another list on this site he was lower ranked than JB af far as guitarists went.V 1 Comment
JASON BECKER IS THE MOST UNDERRATED GUITARIST EVER. TECHNICALLY THE BEST GUITARIST ON PLANET EARTH. "THE PERSON WHO MADE SWEEP PICKING FAMOUS". Please LISTEN TO "SERRANA", HE IS AN AMAZING MUSICIAN...
Considering all the attention other guitarists get, Johnny has never truly been recognized as one of the "greats" even though he was very influential.
Ah Don Felder...tone, phrasing, articulation...he's is such an aesthetic player.
1 of the greatest jazz guitar players! y is he in the 300s on the list! he's put below joe jonas! how can you make this mistake!V 1 Comment
Only guy, who knows exactly, how to play in delta blues style and bring it to the modern world.
I can listen to him and the Destroyers forever. He never falters.
I've been listening to this band since '77. Loved then then & love them now. George T is fantastic on the slide. He doesn't disappoint!
One of the world's finest guitarist. He frequently doesn't make the "underrated" lists.V 1 Comment
Schenker was never given credit for developing the melodic well structured style of guitar playing that dominated the 80s. He along with a small group of others started this in the 70s and he was way out in front but the glory later went to other guitarists that followed. Maybe being an alcoholic suffering very bad stage fright and leaving every band just as they hit the big time don't helpV 1 Comment
Come on guys his work on Whitesnake and Blue Murder, Fantastic
He was amazing on Thunder and Lightning by Thin Lizzy - TheStargazer
Tigers of pan tang he is # 1 underrated guitar player
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. - aeromaxx777
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.
His solo of Genesis' "Firth of Fifth" is just perfection. He is innovative and unique, just listen to the guitar work in the song mentioned above.
Used tapping much long before Eddie Van Halen
Invented Sweep picking. that is all.
Worked the wah even before Jimi - in fact Jimi admitted Kath was the better player between the two. Listen to Kath's solos on "Make Me Smile" and "25 or 6 to 4" - both well ahead of anything at the time. He'd be lot higher on the list, had he not died at such an early age.
Listening to live Chicago concerts from 1968-1970 Terry is smoking hot on South California Purples, Free Form Guitar, I'm a Man and many others. His passion, blistering leads and soulful guitar playing are in rarified air!
Terry was an amazing talent and leader of a 70's band that was second in record sales to only the Beach Boys. His style was trailblazing and a thing of beauty to behold, especially live. It is truly time for him toreceive the credit he is due as an outstanding guitarist/musician.
The solo to "Liberation" off Chicago's first album is probably one of the greatest in history! He was taken at such young age, but hopefully later on his guitar playing will be heard and respected.V 13 Comments
