106 Chet Atkins Chet Atkins
107 Dan Donegan Dan Donegan Dan Donegan is an American musician and guitarist for heavy metal band Disturbed. Donegan began playing guitar as a teenager and eventually formed a band called Vandal, which was an 1980s-style hair band.

You must listen to his solo in the song Torn by Disturbed. It's my all time favourite solo. Not only is he incredibly talented at playing the guitar, he also makes some of the best riffs I've ever heard, one of them being "The Night".

Just listen to (The night) song

111 Ben Bruce
112 Chris Broderick Chris Broderick Christopher Alan Broderick is an American musician, best known as the former lead and rhythm guitarist of the American heavy metal band Megadeth.

Look at the "Betcha can't play this" 8 finger tapping solo. Look at the solo's from Megadeth's Endgame. He must be in the ten.

113 Michael Romeo Michael Romeo Michael James Romeo is an American guitarist and a founding member of the progressive metal group Symphony X.

The greatest guitarist of all time.
Only guitarists know that, because undeniably he's known as the best guitarist in technique since he does things no one can do.
And musically, well he has masterpieces such as The Odyssey and The Divine Wings Of Tragedy and lots of other songs with his band Symphony X.

114 Rocky George

Rocky could wipe the floor with most original metal guitarists and not even break a sweat. Makes Kirk look like a lost puppy.

115 Joe Perry Joe Perry Anthony Joseph "Joe" Perry is the lead guitarist, backing and occasional lead vocalist, and contributing songwriter for the American rock band Aerosmith.

How is JOE ' PERRY not higher on this list?! #95 though? Really people? Joe Perry is part of the "Toxic Twins" with Steven. How is he not in the top 20, AT LEAST! LOL.

116 Steve Clark
117 John McLaughlin John McLaughlin

It's amazing how pop "guitar" players get the most recognition, like Riche Sambora, Slash, Synister Gates or Mathew Bellamy. It is shocking how if you thrust a musician or artist in peoples faces, they think it's the only thing out there. John McLaughlin has not only changed the Jazz and rock worlds, but has influenced countless guitar players with his complexity of composition and raw technical virtuosity.

You guys never listen to any jazz fusion at all. Listen to Mahavishnu Orchestra and you see what I'm saying
