At #1 because Neoclassical Metal is namely this - guitar instrumentals by guitarists that are outta this world. - Metal_Treasure

2 Progressive Metal

Two names - John Petrucci and Jeff Loomis. - Metal_Treasure

3 Technical Thrash Metal

Technical thrash metal puts a greater emphasis on the guitar work so on average, these guitarists are technically better than those in your ordinary thrash.
Annihilator: Alison Hell, Schizos (Are Never Alone) Parts I & II, Imperiled Eyes.
Coroner: Arc-Lite, Masked Jackal, Tunnel Of Pain. - Metal_Treasure

4 Thrash Metal Thrash Metal Thrash metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression. The songs usually use fast percussive beats and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work.The genre evolved in the early 1980s from combining the fast drum beats more.
5 Speed Metal

Yngwie - Rising Force, Primal Fear - Riding the Eagle, Rainbow - A Light In the Black. - Metal_Treasure

6 Heavy Metal
7 Power Metal

I like the most Kai Hansen solos (Gamma Ray). - Metal_Treasure

8 Melodic Death Metal

Alexi of Children Of Bodom is a very good soloist. Not long ago Arch Enemy hired Jeff Loomis as a lead guitarist so they will be the band with the best solos in this subgenre. Can't wait for their new album. - Metal_Treasure

10 Death Metal

The Contenders

11 Groove Metal

Dimebag Darrell Enough Said - christangrant
