Greatest Rock Guitarists of All Timerodoglez11
The Contenders: Page 3
The greatest guitarist I have ever heard, whether it is for Creed, Alter Bridge, or his solo project. And he writes most of the music for all three bands
The guy is an absolute genius. Given that he was voted better than Slash in a Loudwire magazine poll it is criminal that he is not in top 10!
There is no way this guy is not in the top 5. He is Unreal probably the best in the world
Awesome guitarist who deserves the top 5.
Dude I just can't believe this... one of the most versetile and dedicated guitarists of all time on 46? Just listen to Californication, Scar Tissue, Can't stop, Snow, Dani California, Wet Sand, The Zephyr Song, n Under the Bridge and you will come to know what I am trying to say
Unmatched player. Best guitar player of all time. If you look at quotes from fellow guitar players like Clapton, Slash, Santana etc...
Awesome guitarist-a virtuoso. Should be number 1
Without a doubt, simply the most talented and best guitar player of all time!
Ask Clapton, ask Dave Grohl - another major difference...Prince was one of the few guitarist's that can actually read music...a true musician and composer.
Check out his work with X Japan - his individual style, apperance and playing skills will never be forgotten! Would be No. 1 if he was from America!
Never found a Japanese can play guitar like American. Just listen to hide's guitar solos in X Japan songs. Obviusly, hide is number 1 japanese guitarist or one of the best guitarist of all timeV 1 Comment
Its just so unfair... He deserves 2 be in top 10ns :'(V 1 Comment
Listen to Plug in Baby, Stockholm Syndrome and Reapers. That's enough to show how much of a great technical guitarist he is.
Matt is a superb guitarist, I have no idea why he's so low down on the list?
Seen Blue Oyster Cult many times in concert. Buck Dharma steals the stage by making it look so easy. He can actually be funny at times. My favorite band of all time. If they play near me I still go see them. Bucks boogie is a great instrumental song. If people only knew how many great songs they have besides don't fear the reaper, Godzilla and burning for you they would get hooked also. Keep on rocking BOC. I even had a pair of earrings made with their symbol. Everyone wonders what they mean. I named a dog on his pedigree after Buck. Of course it was a Great Dane because both are great
Saw this guy live and was absolutely astonished by his work. Blue Ouster Cult will always be rock legends, and it's thanks to Buck Dharma and his lightning fast guitar skills.
Buck was my primary guitar influence growing up in the 70's. Very unique style and sound. Very underrated. Glad to see him on this list.
Melodic, precise, accurate, flowing, perfect and one of the best guitar and vocal talents still living from the real R&R era,V 1 Comment
Should be in the top ten at least!
Should be in Top 10. Who compiled. This list.
Definitely should be in top 20 at least
Come on #59...really? Top 20!
Oh my god... Chuck Berry, rock and roll pioneer, decade defining 50's act, and singer of You Can Never Tell and Johnny B Goode, at 67!
Practically invented rock and roll guitar.
This dude invented rock n roll he deserves top 20 at least!
How is he down here
Hetfield is the best guitarist ever! Just listen to any Metallica song and you'll know what I'm talking about!
Well, I think Hetfield is a better guitarist than Hammett. - Nintendonix
This guy is the best guitarist in the world no one will ever come close to his ability not even Hendrix
Best ever! Fastest, the most talented, playing and composing, not only electric but acoustic
Mr. "Neo Classical, Guitarist, Revolutionarist" anyone?! Anyone who doesn't add him on the Top 10 of this list along with Steve Vai simply just can't relate to these masters music. SAD... Bring them up!
He earns higher position!
He makes the music of aerosmith without him the group almost disappeared and he deserves almost top 5
Jeeze. Joe Perry at 45? What are you listening to?
He's really underrated. Just listen to any song of Aerosmith's Rocks or Toys In The Attic and you know what I'm talking about.
by the way, 90s Aerosmith sucks, so don't try that.
He's not a guitarist lol - Dade
One of the greatest sounds of the guitar. Duane Allman didn't have a lot of time to accomplish his career due to his early death in 1971. Even with his short years he was still a guitar legend.
Look at his circle of influence in short period of time he was here... Clapton, George Harrison etc.V 1 Comment
Be serious. I have been listening to this guy for 45 years, & it's hard to imagine him standing behind all of these other guys. He's just too good.
Carlos is rated way to low. He should be in the top ten
If you do not think this guy is in the top 10 all time you are crazy.I have listen to his rips for so long and he can play anything,not so for a lot on this list period.
Santana #53? Are you crazy?
Ok, is a rock list... but if we are talking about guitars this is one of the top of this list.
Are you kidding me? What hell is this?... Richie on 50? That's joke
Should be a lot higher... very underrated in my opinion
Nope. Nope. Richie in 61?! RICHIE SAMBORA IS LIKE THE GREATEST GUITARIST WHO EVER LIVED!
