I was just thinking about guitarists that don't get the credit they deserve for what they do. List two guitarists who you think have been short-changed in the honor and respect department.

1.Alex Lifeson-Rush

2.Brian May-Queen

Post your opinions

Malcolm Young, one of the most solid rhythm guitarists ... ever!

George Harrison, the secret to the Beatles success.

John Mayer, the guy is a serious player.

Steve Jones, Mike Campbell, Peter Buck, Mick Ronson, the list goes ever on....

Why should they know who he is?
It's very musicianish, very guitaristy. Guitar pyrotechnics are hard for the public to like unless they're in Guitar Hero.

Unknown =/= Underrated, anyway.

Bruce Bouillet is underrated because he had to share the stage with Paul Gilbert.
Guys like Guthrie Govan and Greg Howe often get lumped in with the bog standard, directionless shred, Shrapnel records crowd, which isn't fair because even at warp speeds their playing is very sophisticated but not in an avant garde, harmonically outside way (usually, anyway!).

Every deathcore guitarist, everyone is like "all they do is play opens" totally ignoring the sweeps and insane solos that make deathcore what it is.
#26
Billy Howerdel (A Perfect Circle, Ashes Divide)
Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead)
Kurt Ballou (Converge)
Trey Azagthoth (Morbid Angel)

There are so many guitarists who don't get recognition they deserve but these are a few that I thought of right away.

.
#27
Sami Raatikainen of Necrophagist (just look at the solo in Codeon-Shattermind)
James Murphy
Paul Masvidal
Michael Kelly
James Malone of Arsis
Nuno Bettencourt

theres obviously more but those are the first to come to mind
#29
Buckethead, because I find that there are very few people who actually listen and know his music. Most people just go 'Soothsayer and Jordan!!! Yay!' But there's a lot of acoustic stuff, metal stuff, hip hop, stuff that just goes unnoticed.

Also, Michael Hedges. One of the earliest pioneers for fingerstyle that I can find.

John Sykes. Gary Moore. Roy Buchanan.

EDIT: And Andy Summers, like those guys above. If you listen to his jazz stuff as well, it's quite hard to the core.
Cam Sampbell's my hero

dave kushner
izzy stradlin

they are both respected but underrated, they both had to play next to slash who got all the attention and glory
