Best Grunge GuitaristsAlexandr
The Top Ten
Clearly number one. Never considered much on true rock lists as 'grunge' gets distinguished by itself. Jerry has a very diverse and complex set of riffs. Truly one of the top performers ever.
I think he should be #1 really no one else plays the way he did he gave the music a dark and relatable sound
Them bones, enough said..
WOW not number 1 is this a POP chart?V 3 Comments
Most underrated guitarist of all time, except for alex lifeson
Jerry Cantrell is my #1, but I gotta give this vote to McCready just for his solo in 'Alive'. - benhos
Cantrell is #1
McCready is #2
Thayil is #3
Cobain is whatever... wasn't that much as a guitar player. Couldn't play solos and his songs are really simplistic... and that's what's AMAZING about him!
His riffs are very memorable, and that's important... I prefer melodic Solo's than just a bunch of random shredding
He only admits it because he doesn't like praising himself, but his wrong an everyone who plays guitar knows it, his genius is how he can invent those catchy melodic tunes and how he can play violently when he wants to, not to mention his distortion sounds that can't be placed on paper, not mention his incredible vocal range that can be beautiful and can also wake the dead.
NUMBER 1 are you kidding how is he the best his songs are simple and he himself admits he's an awful guitarist - christangrantV 1 Comment
Kim Thayil is my favorite guitarist,when I play my Fender Telecaster Deluxe I play Soundgarden songs and it rocks,he deserves to be number one
Wrote heart feeling lyrics with amazing riffs even though kim is the lead guitarist chris is better than kurt cobain.
Radiohead are not a grunge band. - Gg2000
Stone wrote literally all the hits on Ten. Master songwriter.
Not sure STP should be lumped in with "Grunge" but if so Deleo should be much higher on the list.
