21 Seth Morrison

23 Paul Waggoner
24 Corey Beaulieu Corey Beaulieu Corey King Beaulieu (Born November 22nd 1983) is an American musician and actor, known for being the lead guitarist and backing vocalist for the Heavy Metal band Trivium.

Corey is the best guitar player for me and I love his solos and his riffs m/

He should be the first

Corey beaulieu is the best.stop m/

He beats synester gates

25 Jeff Loomis Jeff Loomis Jeff Loomis is an American musician, best known for his role as lead guitarist in the progressive metal band Nevermore and death metal band Arch Enemy.

His solo work was really impressive. It has a brutal sound but a classic style for some parts. His solos are so impressive, he economy picks, sweeps, alternate picks and everything. I didn't like nevermore too much but his solo stuff is great

This guy is now considered old school. I can't say anything that hasn't already been said about this mad genius except he was born in the wrong year like all the other greats on this list. Excluding JR who sucks big time.

He is the greatest guitarist to ever live! Not exactly young anymore as he is in his 40's now, but he could smoke any single one of the dudes on here. That simple. Listen to Miles of Machines.

26 Eddie Lucciola

I saw him live, and he was amazing. He can shred the solos on a fast precise way that no many can. Eddie has the skill to be the best and he proves it in his videos.

Death metal and thrash metal guitarist playing in 3 bands and having 5 guitars he is a pretty sick guitarist

So metal awesome guitarist from youtube

Come on guys... He's solos just fits in very well with the songs... He doesn't do unnecessary solos. He's just amazing on stage.

35 Mike Hranica
36 Dave Strange

Midnight Messiah guitarist. This guy really brings something extra to the band both with his technique and bluesy feel. Well worthy of this list in my opinion.

Dave is a fantastic guitarist as well as being an extremely nice person as well... Go Dave!

Dave is the best guitarist and the nicest guy!
