Best Guitarists Ever
The Contenders: Page 21
Brad Paisely seems to have been overlooked here perhaps because he sings as well but his first love is the guitar. He was given a guitar by his grandfather when he was young so that he would never be lonely and his grandfather taught him to play. It is true that Brad Paisley is a country music legend in the making but his amazing ability with the guitar should not be overlooked - he is quite simply put one of the best ever. On his most recent album "This Is Country Music" which is his ode to country music he has one song called Eastwood that is just Brad playing the guitar and Clint Eastwood whistling. His grandfather gave him quite and gift and Brad is very passionate about it.
Brad Paisley is the best! Just because he's a country guitarist doesn't mean that he's not awesome, because country music is the best style ever! Just watch a video on YouTube and you'll find out!
Most original guitarist since Hendrix. I have seen many of the greats in concert (Clapton, Beck, etc.). I have to say that Paisley was a cut above. Check him out if you get the chance.
607, are you serious, this man has more talent in his pinky than most of the next 500 or so guitarists ahead of him.V 5 Comments
He was just as good at guitar as he was at singing. He was just amazing. That's all there is to it. RIP Benjamin Orr. We will miss you.
Benjamin could do it all and was modest about his talents! Miss you always and forever!
Listen to Angra's discography, and you will know more of his skills. A truly master in so much genres. He is a top level!
Listen to the last Megadeth album Dystopia, he is amazing guitarist!V 1 Comment
Old school sepultura with andreas belting out those riffs oppose to cavalera's heaaavvvy rhythm work was and still is among metals' best combo
He is rated the 5th greatest by Rolling Stone for a reason. This guy can shred he's legendary. Before you vote look him up. I've seen him live too and he's real rock.
Oh and Chuck Berry should be number 1 he's the real king of rock and roll not some fat guy who, died on the toilet
Uh, yeah, this guy named tom petty formed a group called the heartbreakers, and mike campbell was the guitarist, and they made this song called runnin' down a dream, and there was this solo at the end that was amazing - pauler94
Mike Campbell is one the best guitar players ever. He knows how to serve the song, point all the attention to him. He is the king of tone and also a great songwriter. Very very humble but extremely underrated.
He's got it all; southern rock, progressive, mainstream, heavy, pop, etc. This guy is talented!V 2 Comments
Ian Dsa is my favorite guitarist of all time. He is in my favorite band. He has great style in the way he plays. You should really listen to his music its awesome!
As the lead guitarist of Billy Talent, this guy has created some of the sickest music the band has ever put out. My god, just listening to songs like Saint Veronika or This is How it Goes shows that he has a supernatural ability to play the guitar. He's honestly one of the best modern guitarists out there. - DaRealXgen
He should at least be in the top 3! This is just a same. He is so much better than most people think! He is way too underrated!

Couldn't believe he's not in the list. Just heard old an new concerts. He may had trouble with his voice, which forced him to have a break, but he's still a great guitarist and writer. - fhiesel
He loves his guitar, he's so talented he must be the first in the pool and he's so good at guitar, you can melt in his voice too
He loves his guitar so much and he's so talented and good at guitars - JunRaemin
Uh Bon Jovi is a band not a guitarist
Why the hell Bon Jovi isn't on The Top 100? Freaks vote here!
They are amazing, they have best composition...

Wow, 843 he should be ranked higher.
He's such a Clunt
He is only 20 but he is so skilled. The solo in Kiss Me Kiss Me, She's kinda hot or Wrappped Around Your finger are incredible.
WHy tf is Michael Clifford so underrated. I am so angry right now!
He influenced the white power genre unlike anyone else. - Edgelord
Paul gray is a bassist not guitarist - Disturbedpotato
Should be somewhere on this list. Listen to Anything of Love or Electric
If you watch and listen to Billy play you will be mesmerized by his brilliance.
What this guy does [just] on "The Phoenix" (live) should easily put him in the top 100, at least. Also, anything on the Cult's Love, Sonic Temple or Electric albums would quickly square things away. Finally, anything live that this guy plays would put many, many of these other guitarists to rest...
