21 Mark Tremonti Mark Tremonti Mark Thomas Tremonti is an American musician, singer and songwriter, best known as the lead guitarist of the rock bands Creed and Alter Bridge.

Creed restricted Tremonti's guitar ability with their use of only one guitar tune and their lack of solos, but on just about any Alter Bridge song, Mark and Myles Kennedy five headlong into a unique, beautiful, befitting solo and catchy riffs that almost speak as much as Myles' lyrics. Also, Mark's solo band, Tremonti, uses some great solos. I would recommend people listen to "Blackbird" by Alter Bridge and "You Waste Your Time" by Tremonti to familiarize themselves with Mark Tremonti's talent.

What is wrong with everybody?! Perhaps they are unfamiliar with Mark's guitaring but he shreds the axe better than anyone else this century except, perhaps, Synyster Gates. Mark is a great guitarist and his solo on "Blackbird" by Alter Bridge may be the best solo of the 21st century.

Guys I've heard all these guitarist play and some more that deserve to be on this list like Joe satriani n carlos santana but honestly from all these mentioned here it comes down to two guys:Mark tremonti and Synaster Gates from Alter Bridge and Avenged Sevenfold respectively so its up to you to choose what you'l want as number 1 from these two

22 Rob Barrett
23 Brad Delson Brad Delson Bradford Phillip Delsonis an American musician, best known as the lead guitarist and one of the founding members of the Grammy Award winning rock band Linkin Park.

He's great at improvising, but apart from that he's an absolutely crap guitarist who doesn't play well and doesn't even like playing.

He is the best Guitarist! Listen to the hunting party - Paree

He should be in top ten because he plays electric guitar so well. Peer Kaiser

24 Jonny Buckland

From Coldplay, hands down a great guitarist with thrilling solos

Maybe he's not greatest guitarist. But he should enter to Top 20 - esambuu

25 Jake Pitts Jake Pitts Jacob Mark "Jake" Pitts is an American musician and record producer best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Black Veil Brides.

He can play solos and chords he hopefully will one day be listened to not just by 12 year old girls

Hr s the best upcoming guitarist n he will b on the top chart after some tym

26 Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

His guitar performance in montreaux in 09 puts him up there to numero uno, with out a doubt pop musics 20th century's most influential guitarist, he changes the industry

30 Joe Bonamassa Joe Bonamassa Joe Bonamassa is an American blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. When he was only 12 years old, Bonamassa opened for B.B. King. He was born 8th May 1977. He is known to be one of the greatest blues guitarists ever.
31 Jack White Jack White

Jack White is, by far, the most talented guitarist of the 21st century. Not only was his solo career actually successful (unlike every other entry on this list) he started 5 other projects, and the successful of them were very successful. The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, The White Stripes (my favorite), The Go, and Two Star Tabernacle. He is amazing, and might even be better than Prince.

Seven nation army. Do I really need to say anything else. Well since I'm here I might as well. The white stripes literally changed music forever. A band with 2 people yeah okay there - Ledjam17

Better than Auerbach, Billie Joe, Frusciante, and on par with Bellamy. Jack White is what you get when you combine Robert Plant and Jimmy Page and dye his hair black. He is the new riff king and deserves to be in the top 3 at least.

29, I hope this list is joking
