81 Richard Thompson
82 Ichiro CIPHER Takigawa
83 Mathias Jabs

Master of the bend. Interesting...knows when to play fast on a slow song (No One Like You, Still Loving You) and slow on a fast song (Dynamite). Great feel. Great power. Great...everything

84 Ray Toro Ray Toro Raymond "Ray" Toro is an American musician who served as lead guitarist and backing vocalist of the band My Chemical Romance until their split in 2013.

Ray all the way! My Chemical Romance wouldn't have been the same without him. I personally think he deserves to be higher than Frank Iero, but they're both amazing guitarists.

Never seen someone put so much passion and dedication into a song. The Fro is supreme!

85 Murray Cook
86 Justin Hayward Justin Hayward Justin David Hayward is an English musician, best known as songwriter, lead singer, and guitarist in the rock band the Moody Blues.

So classy and underrated it's untrue!

Seen him live dozens of times.tops for talent.flawless

87 Mick Thompson

Best band in the world. Slipknot

88 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.
89 Billy Gibbons Billy Gibbons William Frederick "Billy" Gibbons is an American musician, singer, songwriter, producer, and actor, best known as the guitarist and lead vocalist of the American rock band ZZ Top.

Come on Gibbons @ 83rd? There aren't many whose careers have spanned the time of ZZ Top, and achieved their iconic guitar music... One of the most recognizable bands in history with their own identity

90 Robby Krieger Robby Krieger Robert Alan "Robby" Krieger is an American guitarist and singer-songwriter best known as the guitarist of the rock band the Doors, and as such has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The doors guitarist oh yes he is one of the greats

91 Steve Clark

Definitely Leppard professional Guitarist should be in the top 10. He was the 2nd best guitarist of the 1980's. He totally beats Slash. Not that I dislike him, but just saying. Steve is better.

92 Jeff Healey Jeff Healey Norman Jeffrey "Jeff" Healey was a Canadian jazz and blues-rock vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter who attained musical and personal popularity, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s.
93 Bernie Marsden

As long as this list is Bernie Marsden should be on here. Whitesnake, and UFO another great British blues guitarist.

94 Steve Rothery Steve Rothery
95 Lonnie Mack Lonnie Mack Lonnie McIntosh, better known by his stage name Lonnie Mack, was an American Texas-blues guitarist who had influenced the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan. He died on April 21, 2016.

Played rhythm and lead simultaneously and seamlessly. One of many things SRV got from Mack.

Probably the first rock and roll 'guitar hero'. One of SRV's idols.

96 Robert Johnson Robert Johnson
97 Jerry Garcia Jerry Garcia Jerome John "Jerry" Garcia was an American musician best known for his lead guitar work, singing and songwriting with the band the Grateful Dead, which came to prominence during the counterculture era in the 1960s.

Should top 10

98 Fred Frith

Not main stream but one of the best in experimental avant-garde rock.

99 Zacky Vengance
100 Ken Kitamura
