Any well known guitarists that are actually pretty good but aren't famed for it?

I was just listening to Funeral for a Friend and the guitarists in that band have written some pretty crazy riffs between them. Roses for the Dead, All The Rage, Bullet Theory etc. Also, Ray Toro from MCR is a pretty decent guitarist. His solos always seem really well thought out and it's not a solo just for the sake of having a solo. Shame the band went so downhill after Three Cheers...

Your last job only paid you $7.00 AUD an hour? That's like $6.05 in the US. What the hell is the minimum wage over there?

Dave Baksh (ex Sum 41) Very underrated.
John Mayer, gets a lot of praise from teenie girls and therefore is overlooked, but after watching him live I've come to conclude he's actually amazing.

Johnny Marr
Tom Verlaine
Mick Jones
Johnny Thunders
Jonny Greenwood
Mike Waldean

I thought that about Kris Coombes before TS.
When you learn roses for the dead yourself and realise just how much skill it takes to play cleanly and as fast as he does live, as well as the musical ability to write it in the first place.

Yeah. There's lots of changes in speed. It feels half as fast as it actually is. Sometimes you're playing at around 102 beats per minute and it's pretty easy then it goes to 204 bpm. The outro riff is cool too. And playing the intro in time is a bitch to get down cuz of it being a polyrhythm and all that.

Ian D'Sa is also underrated I feel, taking in account that he actually plays rhytm and lead parts through eachother. It's pretty hard to play, technically seen.

I've seen them a few times, and he's constantly impressed me.

Johnny Marr, the man makes one guitar sound like two or more.
Jamie Cook from Arctic Monkeys, they have some sexy riffs.
Simon Neil from Biffy, weird chords that still seem to sound beastly.

Larry LaLonde of Primus. Seriously an incredible guitarist, but he gets overshadowed by one of the greatest bass players on the planet.

Quote by BenRaah
that's no secret

It is a little bit.

I mean, not really, but if you've only listened to his solo stuff it's surprising to hear him actually really shred. Good thing he hates doing it, because I can tire of hearing it.

Holy hell! Is that really him???

Have you ever listened to Dope Nose by Weezer? Rivers is a pretty damn good guitarist.

On topic: Nick Valensi from The Strokes has some pretty damn good solos and riffs.
