1 Jared Dines Jared Dines Jared Dines (Born October 6th 1992) is an American musician from Washington, who is best known for his success and works on YouTube based on the Heavy Metal genre. He is also the vocalist for the band Dissimulator and the drummer for Rest, Repose and has a strong following of 1 million subscribers as more.

He's a genius multi-instrumentalists, I like his videos, they're very funny.

His videos are very good, useful and funny. I'm a fan. Some of my favorites are: Deathcore VS Death Metal, Metal VS Metalcore - Metal_Treasure

2 Steve Terreberry

He sometimes gets over-exaggerated. For example his video of "If Lil Wayne Played Guitar For...". He reminds me of Bart Baker sometimes. - zxm

Honestly, his improvised solo at the end of that video made me orgasm. - benhos

He is a very good guitarist, even if even he don't take seriously himself...

Stevie was just like me...but I'm more better than him

I like him because he is humourous along with being an awesome guitarist

3 Rob Scallon

More creative and a better writer/composer than Dines. He doesn't need to rely on flashiness. His song Rain is a great example of that.

I don't know the rest of the YouTubers in the list but Rob is the best! - HaViking

Yes he's pretty good on guitar.

4 Rob Chapman
5 Charlie Parra del Riego

Jared Dines' good. But I prefer Charlie's guitar skills more. - zxm

I voted for him because he's still too low on the list by comparison to the others.

He's got the best skills on this list. - Metal_Treasure

He's very good and useful. - Metal_Treasure

6 331Erock (Eric Calderone)

The best I've ever seen or heard!

Talent-wise, Erock is the essential metal guitarist. He can write improvise like a madman (see his footage from NAMM at the ESP Guitars booth). Oh yeah. He's also an ESP Guitarist

One of my favorite guitarists, and to add on, he doesn't even really talk, let alone need clickbait-like content to be popular.

Erock is the best.Eric has a wimpy look.But his sshredding skills and ability to surprise the audience are amazing! And the cosplay too is nice

7 Karl Golden

He's good but he use to do only riff compilation videos with his guitar playing.

He's sexual

8 NeoGeoFanatic
9 Niko Slash
10 TheDooo

Has to be at least number 3, the guy can do anything you want, even writing his own songs, who sound incredible.

This man has thousands upon thousands of songs memorized, and can play almost anything by ear. Come on.

Yes he is the best guitarist I have ever seen

Just watch eclipse

That's how good he is.
