81 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.

How is he not on this list?! Arguably the most talented rock musician of the 21st century, this guy can do it all - solos that leave you asking "HOW?! ", the catchiest riffs in modern alt-metal, and he can sing too. Listen to Alter Bridge's "Fortress" album, he ditches pedals for the most part and just shatters your eardrums with his wicked soloing.

83 Mick Taylor Mick Taylor Michael Kevin Taylor is an English musician, best known as a former member of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and the Rolling Stones.

The Rolling Stones are the world's greastest rock and roll band, so they obviously have the best guitarists!

84 Jan Akkerman

Maybe one of the most original guitar player ever!

85 Syu

With speed and creativity, he might as well be able to play with hide (if he was still alive). Not only that, Syu's been creating music notes for drums, bass and obviously guitars.

Best melodic guitarist! Awesome sound! Beautiful melody!

94 John Squire

Not even on the list? Seriously! He is an amazing guitarist

Maybe the very best, unbelievable musician.

95 DJ Ashba

He's surely one of the best. This guy played with Guns N Roses but he joined Nikki Sixx's band (Sixx: A.M.).If you listen to his solos in Rise and Live Forever, you'll understand why he's on this list.
