The Contenders: Page 9

161 Satchel
162 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.

163 Jun Senoue
164 Bill Drummond
165 Waldemar Sorychta
166 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.

167 Bonnie Raitt
168 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

169 Andy Timmons
170 Jack White Jack White
171 Ben Kasica

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

172 Dave Sabo
173 Andy James

Dude is out of this world! Deserves more recognition

174 Reverend Horton Heat
175 Mike Mushok
176 Skay Bellinson
177 John Lees

Some of the guitarists in this list are not at all underrated so should not be included, let alone be near the top. John Lees however must be pretty well unknown except amongst fans of BJH. He deserves recognition for the quality of his musical composition over nearly 50 years, as well as his spine-tingling guitar work on so many of BJH's masterpieces.

178 Akira Takasaki

This guy completely kick ass! Big influence on a young Paul Gilbert. In the early 80's there was nobody hotter than Akira.

179 Bobby Arlin

The Leaves, The Hook, The Robert Savage Group

180 Andy Summers

Most people can name Sting or Stewart Copeland from the Police but Andy Summers?
If you're learning Guitar his stuff is not an obvious choice until you come across Message in a Bottle and the intro riff - I've heard seasoned Guitarists complain about how hard this is but it sounds so simple and iconic.
Some lovely subtle licks in this and many other tracks which aren't heroic but yet are crucial to the overall sound of the Police.
