The Contenders: Page 10

181 Muhammed Suicmez Muhammed Suicmez Muhammed Suiçmez was born in Karlsruhe, Germany, to Turkish immigrants. He is the frontman and guitarist of the German technical death metal band Necrophagist.

Listen to Symbolic in Theory, Advanced Corpse Tumor, Only Ash Remains and Fermented Offal Discharge. Some very passionate, intense, powerful solos. He wrote ALL the instruments for Necro's first album and it is incredible.

182 Jun Senoue
183 Bill Drummond
184 Waldemar Sorychta
185 Todd Rundgren Todd Rundgren

Todd could do it all! But check out any solos from the late seventies on his black fender mustang. Google " the last ride' or " black maria' from that era. Very soulful player. Reminds me of Hendrix and trower. Also huge tone and sound.

186 Peter Buck

Buck's guitar on R.E.M. 's early IRS albums introduced the world to alternative rock, and inspired bands like Nirvana. Also Buck's guitar on Monster, especially What's The Frequency, Kennith? , is genius

187 Andy Timmons
188 Jack White Jack White

178? No way - Disturbedpotato

189 Ben Kasica

Because he's a Christian guitarist... He is most under-rated.

190 Dave Sabo
191 Andy James

Dude is out of this world! Deserves more recognition

192 Reverend Horton Heat
193 Mike Mushok
194 Skay Bellinson
195 John Lees

Some of the guitarists in this list are not at all underrated so should not be included, let alone be near the top. John Lees however must be pretty well unknown except amongst fans of BJH. He deserves recognition for the quality of his musical composition over nearly 50 years, as well as his spine-tingling guitar work on so many of BJH's masterpieces.

196 Akira Takasaki

This guy completely kick ass! Big influence on a young Paul Gilbert. In the early 80's there was nobody hotter than Akira.

197 Bobby Arlin

The Leaves, The Hook, The Robert Savage Group

198 Andy Summers

Most people can name Sting or Stewart Copeland from the Police but Andy Summers?
If you're learning Guitar his stuff is not an obvious choice until you come across Message in a Bottle and the intro riff - I've heard seasoned Guitarists complain about how hard this is but it sounds so simple and iconic.
Some lovely subtle licks in this and many other tracks which aren't heroic but yet are crucial to the overall sound of the Police.

199 Brian Robertson

A great guitarist, I just wish he would put out more music.

200 Ali Farka Touré

Blues owes itself to traditional African folk music, which is perfectly demonstrated by Toure. An absolute genius.
