The Contenders: Page 11

201 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.

202 Brian Robertson

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

203 Ali Farka Touré

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

204 Glen Buxton

The whole ACG needs more recognition musically Alice too! But Glen had this dark distorted sound that was rare for the late 60's and 70's.

205 Tosin Abasi Tosin Abasi
206 Steve Hunter
207 Dick Wagner
208 Jimmy McCulloch

He is AWESOME at guitar, but NOBODY knows he exists.

209 Tony Macalpine

Mystical grandmaster of sweep picking.

210 Kirk Windstein

Crowbar, Down. Sludge metal slinger.

211 Greg Howe

Introspection, greatest guitar album ever.

Greg Howe # 167? I just lost faith in Humanity...

212 John 5

Check his solo stuff amazing. I love Rob zombie but he doesn't utilize him like he should.

213 Joe Walsh Joe Walsh Joseph Fidler "Joe" Walsh is an American singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist and record producer.
214 Clem Clempson
215 Daniel Johns - Silverchair

So Underrated. But a musical genius!

He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.
