He should be closer to the top for sure! I saw him in concert and he really plays the blues!
The man who invented the heavy metal
He deserves better rank
He invented heavy metal with Black Sabbath. Pulling out songs with such heavy riffs and beautiful solos is really amazing. Guitar in is hands is like AK47. His best work can be found in songs like 'war pigs', 'heaven and hell', 'iron man', 'Paranoid', 'Black Sabbath'...
EHEN HIGHER THAN CLAPTON
Why isn't Zakk in the top 10 of every one of these lists? Have you seen him play?
Zakk wylde behind the Green Day guitar player? Really man?
You all are f' en crazy Zakk Wilde is the greatest guitarist that ever lived. He should be number 1. Joe Bonnammosa would agree.V 2 Comments
Dimebag is great
I guess since he's not even on the list no one has heard of him. But in my opinion, he is much better than many of those who are at the top of this list. Just listen to his Second Winter album and you will see the light.
He's always been supremely vituosic, with a deep feel for the blues. His playing has phenomenal attack and raw power.
An Amazing Guitarist indeed. He won the Dimebag young shredder award. That should say it all. - ShreddingCobra

Nobody makes riffs like this guy. What people? Jimmy page, hendrix, blackmore, steve vai, satriani, pettruchi, dave, tremonti should be in top 10
What AT LEAST HE MUST BE BESIDE SLASHV 1 Comment
Eric Johnson is one of the most respected guitar virtuosos in the world. He has a fast, slick style and a brilliant tone. In the late eighties and nineties, Johnson took blues and jazz influences and catapulted them into the next world. And not many guitarists can top 'Cliffs of Dover'. - Floods
Cliffs of Dover! That work alone should put Eric Johnson near the Top 10 (certainly as good if not better than any of the Top 10 currently listed. ).
Truely one of the best '70's rock guitar legends ever to play. He has fast overtones and sweet licks.
Had the biggest influence on me as a teenager. Many great memories at the lake playing his music.
Still one of the best at making the guitar be himself
He really should be on top 10, THE BEST GUITARIST EVER ON EARTH! You never could find someone better than him at any way.
THE BEST - daronboy
He's not the best player ever, but when you consider that he writes and produces a lot of his band's songs, he's at least top 10 or 15V 2 Comments
He is one of the best modern guitarist, but is often overlooked due to Muse's polarizing style. Look at songs like "Knights of Cydonia", "Plug in Baby" (one of the best riffs of all time) and one of Muse's newer songs "Reapers." These songs showcase his guitar skills very well, among many other songs.
Matthew Bellamy is just Uprising. Not much to say being an amazing guitarist, I reckon the best of all time! You listen to him for the 1st time, you'll suddenly change your mind because he'll blow it like hell.
Nothing much to say about him just listen plug in baby... )
He is really underrated..V 3 Comments
