1 Steve Terreberry

Don't let his looks fool you...this guy is on another level when it comes to Shreds

A goofball shredmaster, no doubt.

Better than jared

Stevie T is insanely good and kinda funny..

2 Charlie Parra del Riego

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

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

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

He's very good and useful. - Metal_Treasure

He plays so clean and beautiful and he can play any song by ear.

He's unarguably the best. Period.



4 Steve Stine

He has better videos than Jared Dines. - zxm

5 Carl Brown

He is the only guitar teacher that teaches songs the right way.

He can rip a hard solo after he fell of a drum platform

He can play eruption enough said

Destroys every guitarist on this list

6 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.

7 Niko Slash
8 Rob Chapman

He knows hist guitars like the palm of his hand. One of the most knowledgeable guitar players out there. Just check his blindfold challenges if you want proof.

One of the best youngest guitarist youtuber
He should be on the top five

Great guitarist

18 331Erock (Eric Calderone)

This man is a beast on guitar. My favorite YouTube 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.

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

38 Andy Crowley

Very good guitarist if you wanna learn guitar online. Especially if you're a beginner. But the only problem is that he doesn't explain things very clearly. - zxm


Writes original music and does amazing covers/remixes to his own style. Had a big increase in viewers when his Steve Vai "Tender Surrender" improv video went viral.

Great original music, plus interesting takes/covers/remixes on some other artists. Can play anything. - krammer68
