Top Ten Christian Guitarists


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

62 Jukka Tolonen
63 Kerry Livgren

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

64 Stu Heiss

Stu Heiss invented the genre of "Christian Rock Guitarist". Listen to DMZ or Live Bootleg and get schooled!

65 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine 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.

66 George Ochoa (Deliverance)
67 Lanny Cordola

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

68 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!

69 Dana Key (Degarmo and Key)

Great hooks. Solid, unassuming style and musically satisfying.

70 Ulf Christiansson (Jerusalem)
71 Michael Cutting (Holy Soldier)
72 Jamie Cramer (Holy Soldier)
73 Buddy Miller
74 Neal Morse
75 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.

76 Dee Harrington (Saint)
77 John Mahan (Saint)
78 Michael Guy Chislett
79 Johnny Markin

Should be in the top ten for guitar playing, and he loves Jesus!

Amazingly gifted worship leader

Incredible musician and really rocks a banjo

80 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.
