Best Guitarists Ever

The Contenders: Page 15

281 Jon Foreman

By far not the best guitar player, but his quality as a singer/songwriter together with his acoustic guitar is amazing. He deserves to be higher above Justin Bieber than he is now ;p

282 Nick Wheeler

Wow this guy can really bring it, his solos are just simply amazing, and he can either play soft rock or just rock out! - klopju

283 Mike Shinoda Mike Shinoda Michael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

Oh man...Mike should be in top 10 at least

285 Dan Auerbach Dan Auerbach Daniel Quine "Dan" Auerbach is an American musician and record producer best known as the guitarist and vocalist for The Black Keys, a blues rock band from Akron, Ohio.

One of the greatest modern influences on rock and blues. - ethangrossman5

Top 100. He is better than where he is placed

His guitar playing rivals jack white!
Seriously listen to "little black submarines" and you won't be disappointed.

286 Greg Allman

You must have him confused with somebody else! Get Real!

Creator of the two greatest guitar solo's ever (stormy monday)

I can not believe the hacks you have above this man. He died very young but that is no exscuse

Duane is the one who was known for his excellence on the guitar and who died in a motorcycle accident in 1971. Gregg is Duane's older brother who recently retired from touring and mostly played the keyboards. He was famous for more than one thing including on of the top rated voices but the great guitar player in the band after Duane was Dickie Betts whom I haven't seen listed. Gregg is also famous to more than fans for his marriage to Cher many, many years ago. Initially, they were both going to go into the dental field. I love trivia!

287 Tiny Tim Tiny Tim Herbert Buckingham Khaury, known professionally as Tiny Tim, was an American singer, most of the time ukulele player, and musical archivist.

Does belong on any guitar playing list, he was awful!

#1 Tiny tim is the best!

This fool didn't even play the guitar. This list is SOOO Wrong!

288 Lou Reed Lou Reed Lewis Allan "Lou" Reed (March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013) was an American musician, singer, and songwriter. He was the guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of the Velvet Underground, and his solo career spanned five decades. ...read more.

This man was a pioneer of the guitar. He taught himself to play by listening to the radio and with no formal training created some truly amazing riffs out of two or three chords. Not the best but deserves to be higher.

No way. He was such an incredible artist who had so much influence. He should be way, way up the list.

Velvet Underground has been ranked 24 on The Greatest artists of all time!

Whomever made this list knows nothing about great guitar players!

289 Chris Babbitt
290 Phil Sgrosso
291 Troy Stetina
292 CC Deville

Lead solos very clean and clear

293 Ed Robertson
294 Lenny Kravitz Lenny Kravitz Leonard Albert "Lenny" Kravitz is an American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer, whose "retro" style incorporates elements of rock, blues, soul, R&B, funk, jazz, reggae, hard rock, psychedelic, pop, folk, and ballads.

Really? Lenny Kravitz listed at 342...? Lenny is an amazing guitar player! This list is killing me. I'm still waiting to find Kenny Wayne Shepherd who should seriously be waaay up on this list, along side Joe Bonamassa. In my humble opinion this list is a complete joke!

297 JB Brubaker

Easily the best guitar duo in modern metal (except maybe zacky v and synyster gates of a7x) and have some of the best solos I've ever heard. very very melodic lead from JB and great, heavy rhythm from Brent. I could understand them not being on top due to them not being very known, but check out Empire, The Wake, Composure, Mariana's Trench, White Washed, Meddler, Cutting The Ties, Pangaea, and or Ocean Of Apathy, they're all amazing on guitar and the list goes on

298 Inoue Kiyonobu
299 John Kempainen
300 Freddie King Freddie King Freddie King was an American blues guitarist and singer. He has been described as one of the "Three Kings" of electric blues guitar, along with Albert King and B.B. King.

This man is, like his name says too, absolutely on the same level as B.B. king and Albert King. Top 40 is most deserved.

Clapton loves his playing and so do I, an all time great!

This guy should be in the top 50 at least. - Rambles
