481 Vinnie Vincent Vinnie Vincent Vinnie Vincent is an American guitarist and songwriter. He is a former member of the rock band Kiss from 1982 until mid-1984 during the band's transition out of their 1973–1983 makeup period.
482 Malcolm Young

Malcolm young really should be on here because he can give a song such a good sense of rhythm and riffing. His riff on whiskey on the rocks=pro. He may not be a soloist but trust me AC/DC would not sound good without him

Are you people mad this guy is as good as his brother were would ac/dc be with out malcom

Well angus is good but listen to that guys rhythm guitar hiss riffs are great man. He's not my favorite guitarist but he's talented.

483 Jeff Lynne

Ok, not the greatest guitarist around, but this guy did his thing on every album for 15 years and stopped to produce, write, and back-up (musically and vocally) some of the greatest there has ever been. Joe Walsh, Bryan Ferry, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, etc. And don't forget the all guitar all-star band he formed "The Traveling Wilbury's. Enough said!

484 Luke Hoskin
485 Alex Turner Alex Turner Alexander David "Alex" Turner is an English musician. He is the lead vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter of the English rock band Arctic Monkeys.
486 Kenny Wayne Shepherd

Love him. What's he doing' way down here?

A-MA-ZING...! Finally I see KWS at 608? Kenny's music clearly comes from his soul, and what he can do with a guitar... He should be next to Eric Clapton. Boost Joe Bonamassa along with KWS

487 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!.

488 DJ Ashba

He is a novice but I am a fan and admirer of his work, he plays very well and stands out on stage.

490 Gary Richrath

Just listen to the solo to "Take it on the run" you can feel the angst and pain in that solo very underrated guitarist and I'm not a huge REO guy but the dude could definitely play.

Are you just Nuts? Gary Richrath could play circles around 90% of these guys. Listen to "Stillness of the night"and become a true believer!

Whoever made up this list is out of there mind, Gary Richrath from REO SPEEDWAGON is Better than 3/4 of guitarists on this list

I think he should be up about 200 spots on this Bogus list!

He died in 1986 after getting crushed by a tour bus in Copenhagen whilst promoting Metallica's more.

I guess the "guitar" bass guitar counts as a "guitar player". *sarcasm* He was a bassist not a guitarist. Same problem as Bon Jovi, Bon Jovi is a band not a guitarist.

Cliff Burton was a bassist, dum-dum.

Cliff Burton was bass player not a guitarist. - Rambles

No doubt he was great,but this list is not about bass players,otherwise he was on top

494 Per Nilsson

Lead guitarist (one of) for the Swedish melodic death metal band Scar Symmetry. The virtuoso's virtuoso. Unique phrasing and technique.. Per is the new modern standard of guitar playing. Unrivalled sweeping and tapping... And no neck pickup. Per Nilsson... The Master

495 Misha Mansoor

How is the Messiah, himself, only 268?

496 Jason White


497 George Kam

His guitar skills are sick! He deserves a way higher place on this list - Bigsamehada

499 Michael Angelo Batio Michael Angelo Batio Michael Angelo Batio also known as Mike Batio or MAB, is an American heavy metal guitarist and columnist from Chicago, Illinois.

Can't believe what's happening on earth...Why is this GUITAR WIZARD on this number? He should be at top 5 at least.

Why the hell is he so low!?!? 934? He deserves to be top 20 AT LEAST. He can play with both his hands at once. People actually need to start actually listening to people like MAB
