51 Ben Bruce, Asking Alexandria V 1 Comment
52 Mat Bellamy, Muse

He's at the bottum because, while he isn't metal, he definitely could be, based on songs like Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome, and Shrinking Universe. Therefore, he could definitely be a great metal guitarist.

Never saw anyone playing live, using the feed-back of the guitar on the sound-system, in order to get a completly new scales!

53 Aaron Marshall, Intervals

Great progressive player that uses tastefully groovy phrasing with soulful solos, his instrumentals don't need vocals on them they are magnificent on there own. He's defiantly a musical genius.

54 Dino Cazares
55 Rob Arnold, Chimaira
56 Jon Donais, Shadows Fall
57 Mikko Lindström, HIM
58 Marc Okubo, Veil of Maya
59 Chris Broderick, Megadeth Chris Broderick, Megadeth Christopher Alan Broderick is an American musician, best known as the former lead and rhythm guitarist of the American heavy metal band Megadeth.

Why this machine man is neglected I don't know about it. At least he deserves a rank between 10-20.

Such a good highly educated player... killer solos and great sound... impossible not to choose his Jackson signature guitar...

60 Chris Rubey, The Devil Wears Prada

Very Original and talented Guitarist right now...
