169 Muhammed Suicmez Muhammed Suicmez Muhammed SuiƧmez was born in Karlsruhe, Germany, to Turkish immigrants. He is the frontman and guitarist of the German technical death metal band Necrophagist.

Listen to Symbolic in Theory, Advanced Corpse Tumor, Only Ash Remains and Fermented Offal Discharge. Some very passionate, intense, powerful solos. He wrote ALL the instruments for Necro's first album and it is incredible.

170 Jun Senoue
171 Bill Drummond
172 Waldemar Sorychta
173 Todd Rundgren Todd Rundgren

Todd could do it all! But check out any solos from the late seventies on his black fender mustang. Google " the last ride' or " black maria' from that era. Very soulful player. Reminds me of Hendrix and trower. Also huge tone and sound.

174 Peter Buck

Buck's guitar on R.E.M. 's early IRS albums introduced the world to alternative rock, and inspired bands like Nirvana. Also Buck's guitar on Monster, especially What's The Frequency, Kennith? , is genius

175 Andy Timmons
176 Jack White Jack White
177 Ben Kasica

Because he's a Christian guitarist... He is most under-rated.

178 Dave Sabo
179 Andy James

Dude is out of this world! Deserves more recognition
