Worst Guitarists of All TimeTheAlterPlace
The Top Ten
His Rebirth Album was an Epic Fail, and it's no wonder. His Guitar skills are beyond stupid. definitely deserves to be #1
Lil Wayne's guitar playing was so bad it shouldn't even count for this list - Nickelstickman
The only person who even deserves to be on this list.
Whaat Lil' wayne is the greatest guitarist in the world I have no idea what you people are talking aboutV 10 Comments
His song and his guitar playing is just no...
Kurt wasn't technically a good guitar player. He never did many impressive solos or musically diverse riffs, but his guitar playing PERFECTLY matched the feeling the band was going for. His sloppy, distorted guitar screeches matched Nirvana's style and actually made their music sound more interesting and better. If they had a more technically skilled guitarist like Slash for example, the band's music wouldn't have been as good or have made as much of an impact. - phillysports
He even admitted he was a bad guitar player.
Hold on a second. The LEGENDARY Kurt Cobain, higher on the WORST GUITARISTS list than Nick Jonas?
Breh, not a huge NIRVANA fan but this guy ain't half bad. The problem is that people overrate him for his guitar skills. - SolariserV 12 Comments
Fred isn't a guitarist, definitely removed from this list. - 05yusuf09
Taylor Swift is beyond talentless. I have never seen a more deplorable vocalist in my life.
Does she even play gutair?
Might be surprising but NO. Justin Bieber is not the worst guitarist. I said, Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne or Nick Jonas suck. Cause they're poser guitarists. Whether you are able to play guitar or not doesn't matter. It matters if you're fake and showing off. Justin Bieber doesn't show off. I have seen some of his videos on playing guitar. He actually can play some scales. Unlike Taylor Swift who just strums on one chord. And Lil Wayne, he doesn't even know the sound of tapping. Even Elvis Presley was a poser guitarist. But so far, Justin Bieber isn't a poser guitarist. So, I won't say he deserves to be on this list. - zxm
No argument here!
He does simple stuff very well, I'll give him that.
He's just not a guitar istV 1 Comment
Why Is Billie Joe here?! He should not Be here!
Sure his solos are easy because as a child he didn't focus on being the best guitarist ever, he focused on being the best songwriter ever.
Billie's solos are really easy; anyone can do em. And many of his chord progressions are stolen from others - SoldierOfFortune
That being said, he does have many melodic, albeit simple, guitar solos - SoldierOfFortune
Nope. Billie Joe sucks.V 2 Comments
This guy stinks he sucks he only plays acoustic have you even seen him on electric guitars before?! hell I think he writes all that songs just to get chicks
More basic than a 1 block rubiks cube with his skills
SInce 30 years ago he sounds like he has only a few days practicing, and never improved a little bit, worst guitarist ever, worst solos ever, boring, simple in the baddest sense of the word... very low quality music made for the masses... oasis are the Mcdonald's of music...
Out of most of the selections here, he belongs here. - MKBeast
Why is Kurt Cobain above him? I'm not even a Nirvana fan, but it's not hard for me to realise they're nowhere near the worst! But Chad Kroeger sucks!
He was the guy this list was invented for
He sucks - InsertCleverName
Seriously? This guy's solos are awesome! - MKBeast
It's not that Kirk is a bad guitarist, his solos are just very random and unorganized. Like blackened and one. Listen to stuff from Kill Em All and Ride The Lightning
WHY? Nothing more to be said. - Caleb9000
Very good guitar player, but overrated. I love Metallica, though. - MetarockV 5 Comments
Whoever posted this is crazy
Wrong absolutely wrong
He is not the worst but is a bit overrated. I do not think he deserved to be on the list of top 10 best guitarists.
Why is the guitar god on the worst guitarist list? - InsertCleverNameV 2 Comments
This list is another terrible one. Come on, John Mayer? Kirk Hammett? Jimi Hendrix? These are great guitarists. - Metalfan2112
A disgrace to our race
Not bad but very overrated
One Direction sucks
Not THAT bad, but very overrated. Just plays a few simple power chords and that's all. - Gruunge
He always hides on stage, and is so lazy
Get this guy out of here. Have you HEARD Master Of Puppets, Death Magnetic, Kill Em All, or Ride The Lightning? - MKBeast
HIS rhythm IS AMAZING THOUGH - InsertCleverName
All Steve Vai does is play a million notes per second. He has no FEEL.
What the hell, lol.
A lot of fast scales, not impressed.
Who added him to this list? Are you people OK? - Metal_Treasure
He's one of the best! Just because he doesn't play 1 million notes per second doesn't mean he is bad! - SoldierOfFortune
This dude sucks. He's only considered the best because brainless pre pubescents thing he's "cool" because of his silly hat and his stupid ass sunglasses. Very average rock guitar player and while he fit the band well, anyone could've replaced him.
Sounds like Lil Wayne when he plays live.

Limp Bizkit are crap - InsertCleverName
Just listen to his version of Eruption.
What? Are You High? - GreenDayFan21
Get him out of here. Now! - Metal_Treasure
Doesn't play with enough feel, but he does do some impressive feats - SoldierOfFortune
Does not Djent.
What?! Are you smoking something?! - MKBeast
This list is a lie. Probably a 8 year old kid uploaded it to troll. Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain don't belong here. Slash and James Hetfield are also really talented. Whoever uploaded this is a joke.
Cobain said his guitar playing sucked, but it really doesn't suck that badly. Other than that, ditto. - MKBeast
The point is that Kurt Cobain said he is bad but that doesn't mean he is one of the worst. It is also weird that above it says Jimi Hendrix was one of the greatest guitarists of all time but he is on the list. Weird right?
What even is this list?
Yeah right. - SolariserV 4 Comments
He is creepy as hell - InsertCleverName
Certainly not! Listen to the guitar solo on "Something". It's not one of those wildly improvised, finger-bleeding, un-duplicatable and absolutely overrated solos, it's melodic and hummable. It was also recorded in one take. With an orchestra playing at the same time! - PetSounds
YouTube top 5 guitarists
It was that one "solo" on youtube. It wasn't even a solo! it was an act of showmanship when bruce was introducing everybody! HE created the solo for Blood Brothers! - SoldierOfFortune
He created rock and roll! - SoldierOfFortune
Chuck is one of the best for god's sake - Gruunge
