Best Guitarists Ever

The Contenders: Page 23

441 Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman

Noodles should be at least top 50, listen to songs like come out and play, or The Kids Aren't Alright

442 Nile Rodgers
443 Jeff Ling

Would be better if he hadn't played in a metalcore band. - zxm

444 Mika Luoto

Played with many bands and solo too. Multigenre guitarist. From jazz to trash. Excellent technique and lotsof feeling. Should be mentioned here.

449 Curtis Mayfield

Curtis was a brilliant guitar player in his time

450 Walter Becker
451 Andrew Stanley

He's not very popular, but he's absolutely amazing! - TheHabsFan

452 Justin Chancellor Justin Chancellor Justin Gunnar Walter Chancellor is an English musician formerly in the band Peach but best known as the bass player for rock band Tool. Chancellor is of English and Norwegian descent.
453 Andrew Stockdale Andrew Stockdale Andrew James Stockdale is an Australian rock musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, lead guitarist and only mainstay member of the rock band Wolfmother, which formed in 2000.

Made some gnarli wolfriffs!

454 Frank Gambale

Continuing jazz fusion genre with brilliant style, sound and amazing sweep picking and ability to go from 0-100 faster than anyone

455 Roine Stolt

After the almost complete death of prog rock, a guitarist came back to life as the phoenix. It's of course Roine Stolt from 70's Kaipa and then from the 90's and 2000's The Flower Kings. He delivers a great versatility, emotion and strength through a style inspired by Gilmour, Hackett, Howe, Fripp, Latimer, Rothery and Zappa (only this! ) like his solos on "The Pilgrim's Inn", "Big Puzzle", "Stardust We are", the one hour long "Garden of Dreams", "A King's Prayer" or "The Truth Will set you free"!

Obviously being in a (Swedish) progressive rock band doesn't get him the exposure or credit deserved here in the U.S. that it does in most other developed countries. See the comments for Trey Anastasio (above) - soy10ley

456 Randy Bachman

Randy Bachman might not be extremely crazy like Jimi or Page or Van Halen and all those greats but he's better than prince!

I would rate Randy Bachman at the very least in the top one. Blue Collar alone shows you what this guy can do.

Sure he's canadian but he should be at least top 100 for sure plus 2 great bands and top ten hits galore? Morerespect please

457 Jim Reverend Horton Heath

He may not be vary famouse but he can get the job done! He is really good with solos and can play really great riffs. his story of how he learned gitar is really neet to. I'm not saying he should be at #1 I'm just saying he should be at least in the top ten. (but not in front of dimebag) so if your looking to here tallent go out and buy one of his bands cd S. and if you like "rockabilly/psicobilly" music listen to his music it's awesome.

VOTE JIM "REVEROND HORTON HEAT" HEATH

458 Todd Rundgren Todd Rundgren

First off, a description of Todd Rundgren's music (for those who are unfamiliar with his work). Todd Rundgren was a progressive rock giant back in the 1970's. However, many people may not realize this for two reasons: (1). He started out as a pop/rock singer-songwriter. It was after gaining large popularity (with his pop-jugged album _Something/Anything? _) when he decided to dive off into the deep end, and heed more fully to his experimental musings (although there were hints early on. )

So, what does Todd Rundgren's music sound like? Imagine the souls of Frank Zappa, Carole King and select members of the Classic Motown-era (The Temptations, The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder) creating a musically-inclined child. It's another way of saying Rundgren's music combines the manic, humorous and irreverent style of Zappa, the reflective, poignant balladry of Carole King, and the classic psychedelic/r&b-soul of The Temptations all blended into one--added with his own unique and inventive ...more

Todd is an AMAZING guitarist, and I mean amazing. Listen to Utopia Live At Hammersmith Odeon and hear him absolutely levitate into the stratosphere - shimmering, screaming lines of pure joy.

He inspired Prince and is one of the greatest songwriters and producers of all time. Top 20, at minimum.

This guy is underrated, PUT HIM AT LEAST AT TOP 300 PEOPLE OF THE UNIVERSE

459 Robert Cray

Robert Cray has been in the guitar business for a while and he has revolutionized the blues. Not that many people have heard of him cause his genre isn't really a popular one, but he is still a great guitarist.

Listen to "Strong Pursuder" and then tell me he is not a top 20 guitarist, a better George Benson.

Great guitarist. Shame to see him so far down the list
:(

460 T-Bone Walker T-Bone Walker

T-Bone Walker was great and a big influence on guitarists like Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix. Should be in the top 100 at least. - Rambles

A crying shame that he's so far down this list - everyone in the top 10 was fundamentally cribbing from T-Bone, Chuck Berry in particular.

479 is sooo wrong!
