Top Ten Most Underrated Guitaristscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 3
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.V 1 Comment
So David Mustain is underrated, but Dan Donegan isn't?
I don't understand the people, what is wrong wit you?
Pete Townshend is so underrated, not only as a guitarist, but as a composer in general. As the person who wrote all of the lyrics and most of the composition to the Who's best albums, such as Quadrophenia, Who's Next, and Tommy, he deserves to have a much higher place than this. He also has great riffs and solos of his own.
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
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!
One of the world's finest guitarist. He frequently doesn't make the "underrated" lists.V 1 Comment
Schenker was never given credit for developing the melodic well structured style of guitar playing that dominated the 80s. He along with a small group of others started this in the 70s and he was way out in front but the glory later went to other guitarists that followed. Maybe being an alcoholic suffering very bad stage fright and leaving every band just as they hit the big time don't helpV 1 Comment
