Best Guitarists Ever

The Contenders: Page 21

401 Steve Stevens

Should be included somewhere on this list

Should be much higher, teamed with Billy Idol has been outstanding and highly skilled

Yepp, should be higher. I saw him with Billy Idol, this rating does not reflect his skills.

402 Walter Trout

How on earth could Walter Trout not be on this list! This man has played with legends like Johnny Lee Hooker, John Mayall Bluesbreakers to name a couple. Walter Trout should be in the top 10!

Walter does not get the credit he deserves in America but in Europe he is an icon. Respected and renoun among the likes of Santana, Jimmy Page, Elton John and many others.

! Walter Trout is Top 10.

Walter Trout is by far the best in the world. He can do it all. Him and SRV kick ass when it comes to guitar playing, period.

403 Gary Rossington

Gary has to be one of the best solid performers in the business. If you've heard Skynyrd live you'll know how guitars are meant to sound and Gary's the heart of it! Solid!

They Call Me The Breeze, Tuesday's Gone, Gimme Three Steps. I could go on. Brilliant stuff.

He is a bad ass guitar player does no one listen to the slide on "Free Bird"

Part of the 70s crew that took a Les Paul to the next level.

404 Dave Navarro Dave Navarro David Michael "Dave" Navarro is an American guitarist, singer-songwriter, and actor. He is best known as a former member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and as a founding member of the alternative rock band Jane's Addiction.

I'll admit that I liked what he did for the Red Hot Chili Peppers' One Hot Minute album. He can play so well for both that as well as Jane's Addiction. - NuMetalManiak

Any doubt, check "Three Days" on Jane's Addiction's album "Ritual de lo Habitual". He's a master.

Top 15

405 Sergio Vallin

Can outplay a lot of people on this list. But he is not anglophone so people haven't heard his music.

Greatest guitarist ever, great solos, great rhythm

406 Ian Dsa

I thought that he wouldn't be here, I'm happy to see him in this list. He has a really AMAZING guitar skills! Songs like, Devil On my Shoulder, Rusted from the Rain and another interesting riffs that have are just incredible!

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

408 Brad Paisley

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.

410 Benjamin Orr Benjamin Orr Benjamin Orzechowski, known as Benjamin Orr, was an American musician best known as a singer, bassist and co-founder of the rock band the Cars.

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!

411 Andreas Kisser Andreas Kisser

Old school sepultura with andreas belting out those riffs oppose to cavalera's heaaavvvy rhythm work was and still is among metals' best combo

412 Mike Campbell

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!

414 Wong Ka-Kui
415 Tom Keifer

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

416 Jonny Buckland

Instrumental and superb, lightning fast fingers. He might set fire to his strings if he gets any faster- Coldplay

One of the best around these days, has written some of the best riffs in history - "Fix You" and "The Scientist"

Just listen to fix you solo and he'll be in the top 10

Maybe he is one of the best guitarist in today's music industry!.

417 Sungmin Sungmin

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

418 Jacky Vincent

This Guy is very good from doing songs and solo, Jacky deserves to be at least at Top 20, cause his sweep picking and long staying in notes is very good. FIR Falling in Reverse Rocks.. If you want to see the skills of Jacky Try the Good Girls Bad Guys, His solo right there is insane..

We're talking skill, he's got skill. No guitarist reached this kind of level at such a young age

This Guy should be in at least the top 50. His Guitar Solos are ridiculous and if you see him live he always sounds exactly like the album.
Check out the guitar solo in the song Born to lead by falling in reverse to see what I mean

His style is so technical and his solos are amazing
