The Contenders: Page 9
Todd could do it all! But check out any solos from the late seventies on his black fender mustang. Google " the last ride' or " black maria' from that era. Very soulful player. Reminds me of Hendrix and trower. Also huge tone and sound.
Buck's guitar on R.E.M. 's early IRS albums introduced the world to alternative rock, and inspired bands like Nirvana. Also Buck's guitar on Monster, especially What's The Frequency, Kennith? , is genius
Because he's a Christian guitarist... He is most under-rated.
Dude is out of this world! Deserves more recognition
Some of the guitarists in this list are not at all underrated so should not be included, let alone be near the top. John Lees however must be pretty well unknown except amongst fans of BJH. He deserves recognition for the quality of his musical composition over nearly 50 years, as well as his spine-tingling guitar work on so many of BJH's masterpieces.
This guy completely kick ass! Big influence on a young Paul Gilbert. In the early 80's there was nobody hotter than Akira.
The Leaves, The Hook, The Robert Savage Group
Most people can name Sting or Stewart Copeland from the Police but Andy Summers?
If you're learning Guitar his stuff is not an obvious choice until you come across Message in a Bottle and the intro riff - I've heard seasoned Guitarists complain about how hard this is but it sounds so simple and iconic.
Some lovely subtle licks in this and many other tracks which aren't heroic but yet are crucial to the overall sound of the Police.
A great guitarist, I just wish he would put out more music.
Blues owes itself to traditional African folk music, which is perfectly demonstrated by Toure. An absolute genius.
