Top Ten Most Underrated Guitarists


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Lincoln Brewster

The king guitarist of Christian contemporary music with amazing songs like Let Your Glory Shine, All To You, Miraculum, Today Is The Day, Everlasting God and much more. Truly a blessed person and surely one of the best guitarists in today's world.

102 Neal Schon Neal Schon Neal Joseph Schon is an American rock guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist best known for his work with the bands Journey and Bad English. He is Journey's last original constant member, having participated in every album and tour to date.

If you really get int a lot of journey stuff, he has some pretty amazing stuff, especially in song like "Walks Like a Lady, " "Of a Lifetime, " and "I'm Gonna Leave You. "

103 John Petrucci John Petrucci John Peter Petrucci is an American guitarist, composer and producer. He is best known as a founding member of the progressive metal band Dream Theater.

The most underrated guitarist ever. He is probably the fast shredder alive and he plays his shredding-arpegios with more emotion than the most guitarists. Also his style is very varied from slow and deep solos to heavy and very dark distorted riffs. Very underrated player

I think that Alex Lifeson is probably the most underrated guitarist, but he's at 5. Petrucci is at 103. John Petrucci is incredibly talented and probably one of the most underrated guitarists, and probably one of the better ones out there.

John Petrucci is an amazing guitarist that I love and is a personal inspiration

I don't think he's underrated. - zxm

104 Robert Fripp - King Crimson Robert Fripp - King Crimson

He played solos in 1969 that rival those many decades later. He also had a major impact in destroying the barrier between highly disorted guitars and virtuoso fretwork.

Robert Fripp > David Gilmour. Just listen to any King Crimson album after their first one

Top 5 guitarist for sure

105 Steve Lukather Steve Lukather
106 Elliot Easton - The Cars
107 James Young - Styx
108 Alvin Lee Alvin Lee

109 Joe Satriani Joe Satriani

Out of all the "shredders" out there, Joe is the one with the most soul.

I haven't even heard him on the radio. I've only heard his music through streaming and cd's. He's an AMAZING guitarist!

110 Michael Romeo Michael Romeo Michael James Romeo is an American guitarist and a founding member of the progressive metal group Symphony X.
111 Brian Setzer

This guy has to figure among the top 20 best guitar players ever. If you've already seen him play live, you'll know what I mean.

You are kidding he is way down here.. really? He is one of the best there is..

He isn't only one of the best Rockabilly guitariats, he's also one of the best guitarists ever. It's incredible what he can do wirh his Gretch.

114 Ron Woods - Rolling Stones

116 Karl Logan
117 Pat Metheny

I've seen Pat performing many times, first time in 1978. And he doesn't stop to amaze me...he is truly one of the most innovative and creative musician of all times, not only a (brilliant) player.

118 Syu - Galneryus

The craziest hands you may ever see
