403 Andy James

Now this is insulting. Andy James is probably, right now, one of the best guitarists in the UK. A rising star to be sure. Ever heard of Angel of Darkness? The Storm? No? Well listen... Andy James is basically shredding with enough taste for everyone.

This guy is AWESOME! He can shred, and yet make it sound very clear.

What? He should be at least in the top 5! I would and do compare them with the guitar gods! Ever heard of angel of darkness? Synergy? No? Well do! And if you think that even so he isn't anything special, well why don't you check his licklibrary performances of steve vai, zakk wylde, synyster, darrel, trujilo? He is the best and nobody should deny it.

405 Hank Marvin

A true guitarist, influencing many other guitarists to numerous to mention, simple straight to the point guitar playing... Enough said

Simply the greatest of them all, literally makes his guitar talk!. He should be in the guitar hall of fame. Listen too his solo Savage

One of the best, Deserves to have been in the top 10!

Now, putting Hank down here at 687 is a joke surely?
Even I deserve to be higher than this and I am still at the "plink plink" stage of playing!
This man has been a TOP player for over 50 years and could teach a guitar tutor to play in my opinion.
He is a super front man for the Shadows, looks the part and has a fairly unique and instantly recognisable style and has had more hits than a whole hill of other players.
Let's get Hank up where he belongs, certainly in the top 20 guitarist's for variety of playing alone!

407 Remigio Pereira

Remigio Pereira is a versatile, talented musician. After graduating from Le Conservatoire de Musique du Quebec with a Masters in Classical Guitar Performance, he traveled to Italy to continue his opera training. Currently performing with The Tenors, formerly The Canadian Tenors, he is also a composer, song writer and producer of various types of music. From pop, rock, reggae and hip-hop to classical, Portuguese Fado and show tunes, Remigio can flow easily between many genres and often plays various guitars in performances. His concerts have had audiences which include presidents, royalty, and musical legends. Underrated, but super showman

Remigio's Portuguese heritage influences his musical background, but he is just as talented rocking out at a Gibson show as he is with his classical guitar and Flamencos

Such a talented musician, his music is mesmerizing! Totally deserves to be counted among the best!

Man can Remi Rock a Gibson guitar!

One of the best. Cannot belive he was not on the list. - Powerfultekin

409 David Knopfler

Simply amazing. He brings blues jazz flamenco rockabilly folk and rock together unlike anyone else

Created a unique instantly recognisable sound. Wrote some iconic songs. Played blistering beautiful pin-perfect solos against a sparse background. Simply awesome.

410 Tina S.

Shredder must get respect

Amazing prodigy

411 Brennan Dylan

A new name but an old soul. Guitarist, songwriter & producer for Men Without Armies. His band is getting internet radio play like mad and charting in the Top 20 for hard rock/metal. Dylan is a very technical player and a guy who doesn't use pedals or fx to get his sound so its safe to say pedal manufactures will never come a courtin'. His style is very unique and is a fusion of hard rock, metal, classical & blues. Like Buckethead, the guy is very under rated but because of his songwriting skills, riffs, arrangements and aggressive technical playing style I doubt that he will remain in the shadows much longer. - GuitarFreak

One of my favorite axemen. Amazing live. - GuitarFreak

412 Stevie Salas
413 Matt Peugeot

One Of the most fastest guitar player ever produced in Malaysia

414 Steven Hyde
415 Greg Graffin Greg Graffin Gregory Walter Graffin is an American punk rock singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, college lecturer, and author.
416 Larry Ler LaLonde

TOP 10 guitarist easy every song primus has sounds like a solo from Larry... Primus has one of the most original sounds

Listen to the solos on Wynona's Big Brown Beaver, they are amazing. A truly amazing, yet crimanaly underrated guitarist.

417 Stephen Malkmus Stephen Malkmus Stephen Joseph Malkmus is an American musician best known as the lead singer and guitarist of the indie rock band Pavement.

I was looking for Andrew York, but couldn't find him. Malkmus is underrated though. He needs more praise.

418 Abdullah Bloshi

Young boy 19 years old from Kuwait play some great stuff
And he play in the band calls DETHRONE

The first time I know there are heavy metal band from Kuwait
It's very good to know that

Yeah he's my friend at myspace
He playing good


419 Tony MacAlpine

Tony MacAlpine (born August 29, 1960 in Springfield, Massachusetts) is a guitar and keyboard virtuoso who came on to the neo classical/shred scene in the mid 80s. He later experimented with jazz rock fusion and combined it with his classical training, as can be heard on Chromaticity (2001). He has released many solo albums in his career. Some of his other projects include CAB, Planet X, Steve Vai and Ring of Fire. - harrykar

420 Joni Mitchell Joni Mitchell

Ridiculous that an icon that several generations of both male and female guitar players have been trying to emulate (and can't) sits at 420. As said, her unique turnings were a virtual re-inventing of the instrument. If you don't know and admire Joni as a legend, you just don't know iconic music. Sad.

Underappreciated guitar player... Invented numerous tunings... Technically superb player with amazing creativity... Solid chops on the ax - LateBloom

I lost an hour of my day trying to find her. An influence to so many guitarists such as Slash or Gilmour.
