Three words describe why he's number 2 : TORNADO OF SOULS.

I like his tornado of souls solo, its good.

The most favorite guitarist of Rattleheads, and solos such as "Tornado of Souls" deserves to be in the top 3. - xXxMuStAiNexXx1

His sense of jazz and blues makes none. Even Marty nor himself could match. - xXxMuStAiNexXx1

4 Chris Broderick Chris Broderick Christopher Alan Broderick is an American musician, best known as the former lead and rhythm guitarist of the American heavy metal band Megadeth.

The current guitarist, and is getting quite a following in a short time (2008-2013). Definitely a virtuoso, but if it became clear that Poland is much higher, and that I can not play I Is not Superstitious, and in another case, the same or better can touch the Tornado of Souls solo, so I make clear why Poland was 2 and not Marty. Of note is the beautiful solo of How the Story Ends. - xXxMuStAiNexXx1

Takes pride his playing, simply incredible.

5 Glen Drover Glen Drover Glen Drover is a Canadian heavy metal musician from Missisauga, Ontario, Canada, where he currently resides.

His playing is unique, and I liked the way he played the solos, like the writings touched by. Not what I was playing was playing, he played what he was born to play. - xXxMuStAiNexXx1

6 Jeff Young

His style is similar to Glen, but not the same, and also had a small room in Megadeth (1988-1989). - xXxMuStAiNexXx1

7 Kiko Loureiro Kiko Loureiro Pedro Henrique "Kiko" Loureiro is a Brazilian Heavy metal guitarist, best known as a member of the bands Angra and Megadeth.

Will not be able to fill " Chris Broderick's" shoes

The most technically skilled of the bunch

8 Al Pitrelli

Still, his stay was very small, but the solo Dread and the Fugitive Mind is just beautiful. - xXxMuStAiNexXx1

9 Kerry King Kerry King Kerry Ray King is an American musician, best known as a guitarist for the American thrash metal band Slayer.

It's a great guitarist, and his works are very great in Slayer, but his stay in Megadeth was only a week. :/ - xXxMuStAiNexXx1

The only thing that goes for him is that he looks the part and that's it...
