Best Guitarists Ever

The Contenders: Page 25

481 Bobby Cochran

Bobby cochran played with a chet adkins style from the time he was about 10 years old and has been taking his undistorted skill to the limit ever since he learned how to play. He has a few fast songs that are even faster than any thing Van Halen or slash ever put out but isn't recognized as he should be because he has had too much lable trouble to atay a professionas for mor than a few years, yet in the little time he had under a lable he produced some of the most complicated peices of musec using both clean 1940/50 style playing and acoustic. that is why bobby cochran is the best guitarist ever.

483 Johnny Lang

Ya all should keep an eye on this young guy, he has "IT"

484 Devin Townsend Devin Townsend Devin Garret Townsend is a Canadian musician, songwriter and record producer. He was the founder, songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist in extreme metal band Strapping Young Lad from 1994 to 2007 and has an extensive career as a solo artist.

His compositions are very unique no matter what genre of music he writes (and he has put out music in a LOT of them), a quality that really stands out in this musical era. He is an extremely technically skilled guitarist, a brilliant composer and songwriter, and a really cool dude.

From his brutally heavy work with the runaway success Strapping Young Lad to his solo work and especially his latest album, Ziltoid the Omniscient, Devin has a strong sense of fun, and is a gifted composer as well as guitarist.

485 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

479 is sooo wrong!

486 Roger Troutman

Refined the talking guitar that was made popular by Peter Frampton, but deserves a mention on this list.

487 Dwayne Blackbyrd McKnight

A relentless and underrated guitarist. Plays with a hard edge.

488 Robert Randolph

His major instrument is a slide guitar, but he has to be ranked amongst the best new guitarist. His live show is much better than his recordings though.

489 Chimbinha

He is good.. Jimi Hendrix played with him

He is the best. Chimbinha is God

490 Steve Gaines
491 Dan Huff

Nobody remembers the studio players. This dude has played on more hit records than most folks on this list.

492 Teppei Teranishi

The guy is unbelievable where is his place

493 Marc Diglio

From "XYZ".. Band came a bit late on the metal scene, but his guitar playing was spectacular.

494 Eddie Fingers Ojeda
495 Stephen Stills Stephen Stills

Hey, why is he NOT in the list. Please check out his work on acoustic guitar and electric. If you can find "Black Queen" check it out.

This is way to low for Stephen. He is the best acoustic and rythym guitarist I know of. Back in the 70's he was up there with Clapton in Playboy's top 10.

496 Robert Buck
497 Jesse Ed Davis
498 Lee Underwood
499 Amos Garrett
500 Scotti Hill

This guy is good he should be in the top 15 listen to his wasted time solo I just keep my eyes closed whenever I listen to it, I felt I was playing it - rafayel
