Best Guitarists Ever
The Contenders: Page 25
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.
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!
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
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!.
He is a novice but I am a fan and admirer of his work, he plays very well and stands out on stage.V 1 Comment
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!V 1 Comment
741? Really?! This guy is a revolutionary player, even his note choices are like no other players, he is one of the most important guitarists of our time!
Why is he so low this man is a legend
Wow! Just wow! This is why this site can't be trusted.
He is for sure one of the best guitar players of our times.
Mastodon is currently the best heavy metal band still producing albuns with great quality. And THIS guy makes it look easy..
Go on YouTube and listen to Red N Black Hippie Sam and listen to this guy play. WowV 2 Comments
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 topV 2 Comments
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
How is the Messiah, himself, only 268?
The best new guitar player. His solos is from hell. No man can play like this. He makes malmsteen look like slow motion.V 1 Comment
His guitar skills are sick! He deserves a way higher place on this list - Bigsamehada
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
