Best Guitarists Ever
The Contenders: Page 23
Listen to "The Black Goddess Rises" solo!
He's skill has touched many hearts
Michael belongs in the top 5 of this list. Speed and "power" were not part of his repertoire. But, no one else has ever flexed the kind of creativity in composition, rhythm, and the creation of guitar chords. To hear him play was one thing. To see him play was like landing on another planet - in utter disbelief that anyone could make a guitar sound like that, and that there was only one guitar and one guitar player involved. On top of all that, it was easy to see how much joy he had playing and connecting deeply with his audience. A thousand people could have been in an audience, and each one of them would have thought "It was only me and Michael." He's been gone 20 years now, and I still am so stoked to introduce people to his music - and getting the same reaction every time: "! " "No way! " "What the..." Nobody did it, or does it better than Michael Hedges.
Undeniably one of the innovators of guitar play. He gets more sounds from a single instrument than almost anyone else. Classically trained with complete freedom from constraints. Amazing!
I saw him in concert twice, he is the greatest guitar player ever!
By far the most creative human being to ever play guitar.
With julian bream the greatest classical guitarists in the world
He is probably the greatest classic guitarist alive. Most of the people on this are just string noodlers. Chet was wonderful.
Please update the list again,

Myles R. Kennedy (born November 27, 1969) is an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist originally from Spokane, Washington. Highly regarded as one of the best and most influential vocalists out today, he possesses a 4-octave vocal range, with his longest held on note timed at 22 seconds (in The Mayfield Four's "Summergirl"; his longest note streak with one breath is 31 seconds in Alter Bridge's "Blackbird"). Kennedy, a former guitar instructor in the Spokane area who has appeared as a guest of both live performances and recording sessions of numerous bands over the years, is currently the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist to Alter Bridge,
If you have never seen him and mark tremonti play together then you need to check that out
He puts so much emotion into his playing
Wait... WHAT? Chris Shiflett beside, uh, Travis Barker? what? Barker is a drummer, not a guitarist! (Maybe he plays guitar but that doesn't count). Chris is a good guitar player, not a guitar god but he still plays good guitar!
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
Just listen to fatal envyV 2 Comments
Amazing guitarist. He's amazing in Fall Out Boy
Why is he so low? HE HELPED SAVE ROCK AND ROLL!
The only person still pushing creative, unique solos in standard tuning anymore.
One of the cleanest players I've ever heard, all the riffs are tight as hell.
Just listen to his band "sylosis" their frightening. Their dark, fast, heavy, melodic and full of emotion. Just listen to "kingdoms of solitude". Did I mention his also the vocalist?V 1 Comment
Get him up. come on PEople
Coolest Guitar player :D ever. he is from the band Skillet :) plss GEt him up
Amazing with loop pedals and great voice:) Just listen to him in the Live Room- You Need Me I Don't Need You. Amazing!
Pretty bad guitarist but a talented musician.
GET THIS FOOL OUT OF THIS LIST.
If you don't know him, educate yourself.
Accused of recording at half speed and always proves the haters wrong. BLISTERING speed, huge riffs, sweep picking to the max, masterful song composition, sick guitars, legendary sound production, and amazing guitar tones. He may not be a legend, but he's easily one of the best guitarists I've ever heard. But let's not forget his counterpart, Miles Baker, who is a perfect carbon copy of Lucas Mann.
Just listen to a Rings Of Saturn song and try to tell me that Lucas Mann isn't an amazing guitarist. He should be so much higher on this list
Great leads probably sickest I ever heard
Does awesome metal covers - Giiggle
He kind of reminds me of Gary Hoey. He can take any tune and really rock it with the guitar. ' guitar god. He more than well deserves a spot on this list. Should be a bit higher.
He's not very popular, but he's absolutely amazing! - TheHabsFan
