Best YouTube Guitarists

The Top Ten

1 Steve Terreberry

When it comes to guitar Steve is a thousand times better than Jared. But drums. Umm... Sorry to bust ya balls Stevie

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

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...

2 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

3 TheDooo

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

This man deserves to be number one because he can literally play any song by ear

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.

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.

Destroys every guitarist on this list

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

He can play eruption enough said

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 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.

18 331Erock (Eric Calderone)

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

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.
