*Mods I apolagise in advance if this thread is against the rules, please delete it if it is.

I think it would be cool to see what UG's favourite guitarists are. I will not count any blatantly silly answers.


The guitarist must be in a signed band, so don't name anyone unless they are actually in a legitimate band.

Name 5 guitarists, the first one will recieve 5 points, the second will recieve 4 etc.

You can name more than one guitarist from the same band.

Do not name the same person more than once, even if they appear in more than one band.

You can -1 a guitarist (even if no one has actually voted for them yet). This will deduct 1 point from that guitarist and I will post negative rated guitarists at the bottom of the list.

Please say the name of the band if they are a lesser known guitarist!

I will update the list here after every page of replies. Here is the list updated as of post #44:

1st. Dimebag (16)

That was a serious list, just switch Kanye with Lil' Wayne

I misread it. XD
And Lil' Wayne isn't a good guitar player.
He is amazing at the drums though.
