481 Bassbaba Sumon Bassbaba Sumon

HE IS NOT A REGULAR GUITARIST. The name here already explains it. Its Bassbaba. Not guitarbaba. - zxm

482 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

483 Jimmy Herring
484 Elliot Easton

You... Have... GOT... To... Be... Kidding! 940th place?!? MASSIVE under-appreciation for a great rock lead-G. As a huge cars fan in the late 70s, I'd have him in the top 20 or 30, but shouldn't be outside the top 100 on any list.

485 Nikki Sixx Nikki Sixx Nikki Sixx is an American musician, songwriter, radio host, and photographer, best known as the co-founder, bassist, and primary songwriter of the band Mötley Crüe.
486 Justin Hayward Justin Hayward Justin David Hayward is an English musician, best known as songwriter, lead singer, and guitarist in the rock band the Moody Blues.
487 Eric Bell Eric Bell Eric Robin Bell is a Northern Irish rock and blues musician, best known as a founder member and the original guitarist of the rock group Thin Lizzy.
488 Vince Gill

If you don't know him, educate yourself.

489 Lucas Mann

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

490 Jeff Buckley Jeff Buckley Jeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997) raised as Scott "Scottie" Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. more.

How is he so far from Number One?
Just listen to "Space Oddity" or the 1973 "Life on Mars" and you'll understand his guitar playing skills.

492 Glen Buxton

Provided the signature sound for the "classic" Alice Cooper recordings. GREAT (and apparently under-rated) guitarist!

Cliff Em All

493 Eric Calderone Eric Calderone

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.

495 Craig Goldy Craig Goldy

Great guitarist. Majorly underrated. Did the Dio album dream evil and in my opinion the guitar playing is great on that album. - luke_cody_03

In addition to that the first Giuffria (ex-Angel) album with the really big hit on it and good all the way through.

496 Bobby Gustafson

Early Overkill stuff is legendary

497 Peter Lennodo

Merely listen to 'Flying High'.

Yeah, but the riff in Tomorrow is Yesterday is even better

Listen to I've Waited
