Top Ten Christian Guitarists

Well there're many Christian Bands so there comes a question as to who's the top guitarist in all of them.

Given below is the list of guitarists whom I consider are the best.

61 Wes King

I didn't expect much from his albums until I saw him live. Amazing.

62 Jonny Lang Jonny Lang Jonny Lang is an American blues, gospel, and rock singer, songwriter, guitarist and recording artist.

Jonny Lang is a 76... Really? I'm a working musician and it's hard to take this list seriously. However the Phil Keaggy rating is pretty fair.

63 Ulf Christiansson (Jerusalem)
64 Jukka Tolonen
65 Kerry Livgren

Agreed! Should be higher in the list. Plays multiple instruments and fantastic songwriter!

66 W. Avery Howard

Fantastic guitarist, and he can play about any style out there. Avery had a group called the Kingdom Heirs (not the group at Dollywood), he not only plays guitar but also sings.

67 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine David Scott "Dave" Mustaine (born September 13, 1961) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, actor and author. Mustaine is best known as a pioneer in Thrash Metal, being the former lead guitarist of Metallica before his dismissal in 1983, leading to finding and becoming the front man of his own more.

Dave is not just a great guitarist, he understands Christianity, and the need to forgive his adversaries. He went back to his former Metallica band mates and forgave them. He also forgave his now bassist, David Ellefson. He was at war with these people, but they are not his friends. A true sign of his Christianity.

68 Larry Farkas (Vengeance Rising/Die Happy)

One of the best ever! Should be from 1-5!

I think he's in the top 20.!

69 George Ochoa (Deliverance)
70 Lanny Cordola

Amazing! "Electric Warrior-Acoustic Saint" one of my favorites productions of all times.

71 Hadley Hockensmith

Now we are moving to somewhat outside the box that the all previous are closing in. This fellow is the guitarist of the former Koinonia and you should check his work in youtube. All Keaggy fans must know Hadley.

He made his mark with the late Keith Green and also with the first Christian Jazz band Koinoia His style is amazing!

72 Dana Key (Degarmo and Key)

Great hooks. Solid, unassuming style and musically satisfying.

73 Michael Cutting (Holy Soldier)
74 Jamie Cramer (Holy Soldier)
75 Buddy Miller
76 Neal Morse
77 Chris Rohman (Sanctus Real)

Not an "80's" shredder by any means but definitely one of the most brilliant and unique players when it comes to just creating beautiful hooks and melodies on the instrument. Also one of the most passionate live performers you'll find.

78 Dee Harrington (Saint)
79 John Mahan (Saint)
80 Michael Guy Chislett
