Can't believe he is not on every guitarists radar! Better listen to " blue Jean blues " one more time! Have mercy! Been waiting on the bus all day! Very good player.
Most people don't listen to ZZ Top's older stuff, so they don't know how good Gibbons is. He would kill it on songs that would never be heard on radio. For example, his slide guitar on "I Wanna Drive You Home" is hypnotic. His wide array of talent goes unnoticed because of ZZ Top's image.
The Edge's use of effects and simple riffs are what make him a trailblazer in guitar playing. Coming from the 70s, an era where guitar playing was all about how much distortion you have or how fast you can shred on a guitar, he took a different road to introduce the 80s. His method to guitar playing wasnt to be known as a shredder or someone with insane solos, but it was to make his own unique sound and to make music with simple notation but with riffs that sound complicated.
Very well put. Yes, Edge is an underrated guitarist, probably because he doesn't go off on ten-minute solos. But his music doesn't call for that, he stays within the music and produces his own unique sound. A musical genius in his own right.
This guy is horrible and he has the worst beard in metal. Take that TimmyV 1 Comment
One of the last 2 great Black Blues Guitarists, (the other being BB King), alive today. And in my opinion - better than BB King. A powerhouse of Blues. Totally underrated.
Neo-classical guitarists are underrated as a whole, as "greatest guitarist" lists are always dominated by blues-based players. As neo-classical players go, Yngwie is among the best of them, and it was Yngwie who really turned neo-classical metal into a genre in it's own right, taking the classically influenced rock of Ritchie Blackmore and Uli Jon Roth onto the next level. If you don't play guitar, you most likely haven't heard of Malmsteen. If you do play guitar and you haven't, you most likely aren't very good.
Seen Dokken live and George Lynch was on fire note for note also was at a guitar clinic that George Lynch put on very Talented. George knows his music theory like the back of his hand. Very Smart man great person to talk to.
Like Marty Friedman, George is one of the most technically sound and influentual talents behind the axe.
Mr. Scary- 'enough said.
So David Mustain is underrated, but Dan Donegan isn't?
I don't understand the people, what is wrong wit you?
Only guy, who knows exactly, how to play in delta blues style and bring it to the modern world.
I can listen to him and the Destroyers forever. He never falters.
I've been listening to this band since '77. Loved then then & love them now. George T is fantastic on the slide. He doesn't disappoint!
The many different sounds that he could master with a flip of a switch from his guitar was one reason that the Beatles had a tight sound. Maybe I'm showing my age,but I still love his guitar work on "I feel Fine".
KG is one of the most imaginative, talented, and entertaining guitarists ever! Him on, an, acoustic is magical! Most others don't have, the grace or technique to rock it unplugged like he does!
he's an awesome amazing guiatarist and he is tight with jack jack black
Definitely one of the most under-appreciated guitarists out there. On another list on this site he was lower ranked than JB af far as guitarists went.V 1 Comment
JASON BECKER IS THE MOST UNDERRATED GUITARIST EVER. TECHNICALLY THE BEST GUITARIST ON PLANET EARTH. "THE PERSON WHO MADE SWEEP PICKING FAMOUS". Please LISTEN TO "SERRANA", HE IS AN AMAZING MUSICIAN...
Considering all the attention other guitarists get, Johnny has never truly been recognized as one of the "greats" even though he was very influential.
Ah Don Felder...tone, phrasing, articulation...he's is such an aesthetic player.
1 of the greatest jazz guitar players! y is he in the 300s on the list! he's put below joe jonas! how can you make this mistake!V 1 Comment
