Years ago there used to be a cd release called Guitars On The Edge that had songs from guitarists that were underground heroes. Guys like Shawn Lane, Greg Howe, Neal Zaza and Todd Duane were featured. With so many musicians out there, I'd like to know who are the new heroes that might not be well known. If you have some names, post em' and where to hear them (Youtube, Myspace, ReverbNation, Ourstage, Facebook, etc).

Antoine Dufour. Andrew Gordon Hall. Pretty much anyone signed under the CandyRat Label. Andy McKee and what not.
1966 Stella Harmony Acoustic
Epiphone Dot Studio
Fender Starcaster (Made by 5 year olds in China)
THE Epiphone Mandolin
Dean 7 String (Totally Korean)
Yamaha C45m
Mitchell 12 MD100S



More Strings=More Range=More BadAssery

Ummmm. But those are all acoustic fingerstyle players. So if you were looking for more electric players I would say Steffen Schackinger (dunno if that's how you spell his name) And Sebastien Cloutier.

Reb Beach and Doug Aldrich are recent additions to my 'Heroes' collection.

I don't know about the best but my favourites would be
Richie Kotzen
Steve Morse (not really unknown but people often forget how good of a songwriter he is)
Andy Wood
Martin Miller (youtube guy, he doesn't really have an album out yet)
Steffen Schackinger (insane songwriter, his stuff completely blew my mind)
Aliadiere - sadly has more syllables than goals this season."

Steffen Schackinger, Rick Graham (world class musician), Jack Thammarat, MattRach, Rik Emmett, Daita, Jorn Viggo Lofstad, man there's so many

David Davidson of Revocation
Misha Mansoor of Periphery
Thomas Erak of Just Like Vinyl, formerly of The Fall Of Troy
Chris Broderick of Megadeth

Just some of my favorites that I've gotten into recently (past year or so). Davidson is probably the best of them though simply because he just knows exactly how far he can go in his songwriting and still sound like a total badass. His solo in Dissolution Ritual sounds like a ****ing waltz.

I've heard of a lot of the guitarists listed here, but it was nice to find a few new ones. I'll add to this and suggest Jess Lewis and Rob Stokes. Jess is a female jazz guitarist from England, you can check her covers of Guthrie Govan and others on YouTube. She has outstanding technique and I can't wait to hear her release some of her own original tunes. For original unknown artists Rob Stokes can play just about anything style wise from Flamenco to Shred to Slow Blues and all of it outstandingly if that's a word. He's on ReverbNation and Ourstage. Another really good unknown player on the same sites is Britt Warren. Love his classical and rock offerings. For better known but still kinda unknown try Tosin Abassi (spelling?) from Animals As Leaders, incredible shredder!!!
#18
Oh, and Eric Calderone. He is the shit. If you ever want to nostalgiajizz or listen to pop songs go shred, look him up on youtube. Some of my favorites of his:

Sonic meets Metal
My Little Pony meets Metal
DBZ meets Metal
Harry Potter meets Metal
Kiss From A Rose meets Metal
Skrillex meets Metal

He was my roommate, when I was in music school. Amazing player.
I'd like to help, but not as much as I'd like not to.

Mats Haugen from Circus Maximus, NEEDS to be known, the guy can flat out play and yet it's always to the song, not just random wanking.

There are many many guitarists from my country that nobody knows. probably the only ones who are known are Luca Turilli and Marco Sfogli, but there are many great italian guitarists:

Fabio Cappanera: the best italian player in the '80s and early '90s. and he was constantly improving. probably, if he didn't die, he would still be the best

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiDsmXCkB8k


Daniele Gottardo: he's really young, yet he is really skilled.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJZzbpugCk8


Andrea Braido: he was THE guitar player of the 90's. he's been a session man for some of the most famous italian musicians. he also has a solo career and he's now more into jazz than rock

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2p9721YDqjc


Fabrizio Leo: just like Braido he toured with the most successfull italian musicians. he too has a solo career.

gianluca ferro, "sebo", and frank caruso: the guys from "strings 24"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqQ-Mmd_6QI


another session man: luca colombo

Eric Glass (hit up "Two Rivers" and "Frozen" on his myspace page), and Scott Mishoe are both upper-eschelon players with virtually no fanbase.

Jimmy Herring (Project Z, Aquarium Rescue Unit) is an absolutely brilliant improvisational player. He also plays with Derek Trucks, the Allman Brothers band and Phil Lesh.

Warren Haynes. Said it before, I'll say it again: God made Gibsons for a reason. Warren Haynes can explain it to you. I may be biased because he's from my hometown, but his chops speak for themselves.

Bumblefoot of GNR is seriously more versatile than Guthrie Govan if that's even possible.
