Top Shredders of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Jimmy Page Jimmy Page James Patrick Page is an English musician, songwriter, and record producer who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Someone once said "If Jimmy Page can't play it, it can't be played. " That is enough evidence right there that Page should be on this list. If you're gonna put Tony Iommi on this list, you had better put Jimmy Page!

How is he not number 1? He is the first man who could be considered a metal guitarist along with hendrix. they totally changed the way a guitar was played. they should be much higher - rocknrollstar_k16

Not the greatest shredder nor he is a regular shredder. But some of his works were influential. - zxm

111 Francesco Fareri

I think this one needs to be added on the list too. He is a mean and sick shredder that can be considered as one of the best. Try to listen to his work "Suspension" in YouTube and you might believe the he is one of the best.

112 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.

Of the band, Radiohead, just listen to tracks like Creep, Paranoid Android, etc. He is always precise and amazing.

113 Michael Lee Firkins
114 Kiko Loureiro Kiko Loureiro Pedro Henrique "Kiko" Loureiro is a Brazilian Heavy metal guitarist, best known as a member of the bands Angra and Megadeth.

Guys, listen a very skill & talented progressive power metal band ANGRA

.. You gotta kidding me, Synyster in the top 10? Be serious, man

Amazing rhythm player, also plays solos really well. I would say an universal player definitely underrated.

Good shredder, nice blues, funky and fusion tones.

117 Christophe Godin

Should be at least in first 20.

118 Axel Rudi Pell

He has been called " Guitar GOD ". His style of playing is speed metal and does very little shredding.
