Upside down guitar playing means flipping a guitar so it becomes opposite. For example, if a left handed guitarist plays a right handed guitar then he has to flip his guitar 180 angle in order to play with left hand. Upside-down guitar makes the strings opposite. Usually its E, A, D, G, B, E series. When playing upside-down, it becomes E, B, G, D, A, E.

The Top Ten

4 Michael Angelo Batio Michael Angelo Batio Michael Angelo Batio also known as Mike Batio or MAB, is an American heavy metal guitarist and columnist from Chicago, Illinois.

Haven't heard him, but after seeing that image... - Skullkid755

MAB has a quad and dual guitar. He can flip his guitar from all angles and play it. He can also play guitar by holding the chords from upwards. Same as Ritchie Blackmore. - zxm

He got my vote because:
1) Most of the guitarists on this list play the guitar upside-down because they are left handed and they didn't have many choices. But Michael Angelo Batio plays it this way sometimes because he can and not because he has no choice. Because he's ambidextrous and doing this is a choice.
2) His skills are more advanced than most of these guys - Metal_Treasure

Yes, he often plays with his left hand being on the opposite side (when he plays from the upper side). It's interesting to watch him when he does it - it looks amazing. - Metal_Treasure

Look at his left hand on the image - he sometimes plays from this position. - Metal_Treasure

He's on the last. Cause he isn't upside-down guitar player like other here. But I added him for a reason. Even though I have never seen him flipping his guitar, but he can play guitar from upwards. Technically it meas playing from the opposite side. - zxm
