For me though the list is sooooo long.
But Zakke Wylde because he's a badass
dem pinch harmonics, dat tremolo
THE SHRED BRO
also Anyone who reads this, feel free to message me about shit like this
Mark Tremonti. Hands down, one of most talented guitar player out there today. Sorry dude, but Tremonti would run laps around Zakk Wylde. Literally, all of his songs and all of his solos sound exactly the same.
Steve Howe and Eric Johnson. Guitar player magazine has a poll every year polling best bluegrass, best classical, best jazz etc guitarists. They also have a best overall catagory. These two have each been voted best overall 5 times and are in Guitar Player magazines Hall Of Greats and can no longer be nominated for any catagory. There's only one other guitarist in the Hall of Greats and that's Steve Morse. What's significant is these are actual guitar players that do the voting
Josh Farro is sick
He's the reason Paramore is as famous as they are
Although their current guitarist Taylor York is also like a god, schooled by Josh, that's what you expect.
Michael Clifford is amazing af too, he may be in a more poppy band, but he's truly something
Hendrix, Dimeola, Matheny, Blind Blake, John McGloughlin, etc. I have a vet long list. Not big on shredders and scales. Needs to be thoughtful and melodic. Chet Atkins had it in spades.
