Love this guitar - what feel and virtuosity

264 Cameron Liddell
265 Chris Poland

Lol, nobody recognizes the best player of all time, Peace sells but whos buying, is easily one of the best albums of all time and its practically a solo album of his, and what other really good album did megadeth release? Rust in Peace, Marty gets all the credit for it but a lot of that albums solos were written by Poland and then tinkered with by Marty... Also Dave the number 1 guitarist on this list admits that Poland could play circles around him, guy saying he isn't beter then Hammett or Mustaine is high as a kite

No, he's not better than Hammett or Mustaine. He was in their best line-up, wrote excellent solos, but there's more to being a great guitarist than just being a great guitarist.

What the hell?! Chris is way better than hammet and mustaine. He deserves at least synyster gates' place!

Lol this list is a joke. Chris Poland at #256? COME ON!

266 Mick Mars Mick Mars

Not technically metal but for a glam rock guitarist his guitar solo's really were awesome!

Mick Mars is metal - glam metal - and I, a thrash die-hard love his work on the Too Fast For Love ep and Shout At The Devil.

267 Don Donegan

Dan donegan, is one of the best guitarists ever and easily my favourite. Solos in songs such as Inside the fire, torn, the night, remnants, stricken, 3 and many more show is amazing skills. Amazing live as well. Disturbed are my favourite band and he would be the biggest reason why!

1st of all it's dan donegan not don donegan and second he's totally the best if you have ever seen him he looks like the biggest stud I've ever seen! He is my number 1 favorite guitarist and will always will b if I ever got to meet him I would die! - Cammybstud10

Fix his name ffs! And vote for Dan, I can't believe that he is so underrated! He gave us so much great music that he deserves to be within top 20.

268 Janick Gers Janick Gers Janick Robert Gers is an English musician, best known for being one of the three current guitarists in Iron Maiden, along with Dave Murray and Adrian Smith, as well as his earlier work with Gillan and White Spirit.

Janick Gers is one of the most skilled guitarists in general. He tops Slash, Eddie Van Halen, Adrian Smith and Dave Murray by a long shot. He couldn't be better at what he does. He's also in Iron Maiden. The greatest band ever

Metallica are the greatest metal band ever, and Gers is in the 2nd greatest metal band ever, and Murray and Smith are approaching their 60's. Gers wouldn't even be in Iron Maiden if Murray and Smith were rocking it like they did in the late 70's to mid 90's.

Considering you've already got Smith and Murray in the list, Gers seems to naturally be the actual lead guitar who dominates the solos!

269 hide - X Japan

He should be in the top ten people vote for him. The reason you should vote for him because 1. He really is a badass guitarist 2. He has the fastest beats he can play really fast sometimes I can't keep up! And 3. He is also a very good songwriter and singer he is very talented so amazing he is the number1 guitarist in my book!

I'm surprised he was ranked so low!

Same with me and yes his is a badass guitarist so amazing and what is more amazingis... HE HAS PINK HAIR! Haha his pink hair is cute he is very cute! He is the kind that can look cute and innocent when he's not being so innocent hehe!

270 Antti Kokko

How in the world Antti Kokko can be 100 spots below fat ass Jack Black is a testament to half you dolts not having a clue. Listen to Hades by Kalmah and apologize.

Best guitarist I've ever heard
i agree Dave and Kirk should be at the top (they are legends) but no one on this planet can play the guitar like this swamplord.
Solo of heroes to us speaks for itself

Most nderrated guitarist ever, one of the most skilled ever. His style varies so much, for intance listen to the solos on Swamplord and then 12 gauge and see for yourself.
