When performing live he does his own version of Chuck Berry's "duck walk" and has also spun on his side while more.

I know he's a very popular guitarist. And some may get angry with my comment but Angus Young isn't a shredder. Shredding doesn't only mean playing guitar fast. Nor only using hammer on and pull off. - zxm

Yep, he is a master showman on live stage, and while performing complex acrobatics on stage, he continues to play wicked leads and never misses a note. I'd like to see these other guitarists do what he does. Not a chance.

If There's anyone who can shred it's this guy AND he can do while running around the stage and lying on the ground etc
Has to be on this list

126 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

127 Frank Zappa Frank Zappa Frank Vincent Zappa was an American musician, songwriter, composer, record producer, actor and filmmaker.

People seem to forget that this guy was one of the best guitarists around during the 70s and 80s. Not to mention the complexity of his songs. If you're gonna put Lifeson and Iommi on this list, you had better put Zappa!
