Best Australian Guitarists
The Top Ten
this guy is the only aussie guitarist I really know lol - rockisgood132
Angus is the best
The Scotisch-Australian guitar legend. He should be and stay the number one.
This guy is the 1 of all guitarist who can do it perfict
This is not a matter of opinion. For skill and guitar mastery, composition and technique, not to mention just serious ability, Tommy Emmanuel is chosen as the very best in the world every time.
Of course, if one loves to see someone sweat and play music more with his hair than his hands, then Young is your guy.
I listen to all kinds of guitar from classical through to screaming, raging metal guitar & also violin... and dobro. One guitarist constantly leaves me gob-smacked. Emmanuel. Such extraordinary skills! ! The comment is correct. It's not a matter of opinion. Emmanuel is a national treasure who continues to display skills well past the peak performing ages of other guitarists. I have been privileged to live in his lifetime. He is a reason for being alive. Thank you, Tommy. - Woulfe
As a technician and all round skill to play all genres of music, he rates as one of the best if not the best. Constantly overlooked on Guitarists Lists due to his lack of exposure (not being in a Band or a Singer/Guitarist), not because of his ability and talent.
A conduit through which genius and technique meet. He plays as if he's a participant in something forming in front of himself and not the sole provider that we know he is. Is genuinely joyous in what his ears purvey to him and so too are the rest of us. Cher.
I'm good mates with chris I would go around his house and have a jam with him what you guys have seen is nothing yet he has shown me some licks to play and they are too hard for me to play laugh out loud
I wish chris and emma didn't move to LA I miss them
Rock on chris you are the best
Chris Cheney us the master of all styles in my opinion. He can play every thing from heavy fat rock riffs to country twang And every thing in-between
His song closing in is one of the most advanced aussie guitar masterpieces I have ever heard.
This guy would dump on Angus Youngs chest!
Moss's guitar work, electric, and acoustic (his Six Strings CD is quite breathtaking) is second to none in terms of Aussie guitarists, in my view. The fact that his musical talent is not so well known outside of Australia is the rest of the rock music world's loss.
Ian Moss is talented to a crazy level, he was perfect as a musician. The sound he achieved was always fantastic and his stage presence was just amazing. The way he moved and the amount of passion he showed while playing is so intense.
There's no question in my mind that Mossy is up there with the better-known guitar greats. Distinctive style, whether on electric or acoustic, alone/with Chisel, lead breaks/solo or rhythm playing. A rare gem.
He can rock it with the best of them and then captivate you with his soulful sound. Mossy is a true entertainer that should have been an international superstar.
So complex in his writing it takes someone of equal brilliance to play. Jim and martin rotsey an amazing combination
I haven't seen anyone play guitar like him. His style is unique and versatile
Where Eagles Have Been solo is one of the best I've heard. And don't get me started on Back Round. - lilbullet111
You are kidding
Great guitarist who as inspired children from a young age to play guitar. The Wiggles show is the first exposure that many children have to music and instruments,
A really good guitarist
the driving force behind AC/DC - Dickey96
A great Tommy Emmanuel inspired fingerpicker who has the whole world in his hands
Just as good as his brother.
Silverchair's Lead singer and guitarist is amazing
Excellent guitarist at such a young age
Its spelt ling but regardless, he's still a fantastic guitarist
John Farnham guitarist is amazing talented guitarist.. Garsed has been with Farnham Band since the massive Whispering Jack album. - Beards2017
The "Iceman" has flown under the radar of most Australians
Saw him at Byron recently... Very enjoyable
Still got it... Never lost it. Byron Bay was set alight. Go Phil
Ex Elks and still a great guitar player
