101 Alvin Lee Alvin Lee

Dude is Awesome!

102 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!

103 Michael Romeo Michael Romeo Michael James Romeo is an American guitarist and a founding member of the progressive metal group Symphony X.
104 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.

105 Jonny Greenwood Jonny Greenwood Jonathan Richard Guy, professionally known as Johnny Greenwood is an English musician and composer, mostly known for his role as the one of the lead guitarists and main keyboardist of the English alternative rock band Radiohead.

Very underrated.

107 Ron Woods - Rolling Stones
108 Ted Nugent Ted Nugent V 1 Comment
109 Karl Logan
110 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.

111 Syu - Galneryus

The craziest hands you may ever see

112 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

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