I'd have to say probably eddy van halen or stevie ray vaughn
(for the real music people, we know they were amazing)

or, if another give some proof and evidence....

and if rhymes were valums I'd be comfortably numb.
EVH is THE most overrated, showoffy player in the world.

this thread has been SOO many times anyway.

Close it.

and for the record: Alvin Lee and Steve Howe.

what a fricken retard.
even SRV is not under-rated. i find he gets rated just at a good level, no over hype but not to little. people i find, appreciate his music at a good level. but EVH is WAYYYY over-rated.

Malcolm Young, George Harrison, David Gilmour (though he's gaining more popularity) and Pete Townshend.
he is gaining more fans but i think tom morello because of his innovative style and definitly tools guitarist adam *something*.Totatly tools because none can use the disortion like him!!disagree,replie me
actually Adam Jones is really one of the least appreciated guitarists, generally because what he does is considered simple. but he's incredibly creative, and sounds amazing.

Steve F'ing Howe. That guy is teh pwn.

EDIT: ^^Keep it classic rock, you two.

oops sorry got a bit distracted...
ALex Lifeson and Stanley Jordan get very little attention... but eddie van halen... i hope you were kidding.
George Harrison definatly.
Hes one of my favorite guitarists but i dont think he gets the credit he deserves when it comes to being an outstanding guitar player.

Oh and Martin Barre-lead guitar player from Jethro Tull.

You're right, I mean, I can imagine eating children, but listening to good music seems a little too much. You, Iruleeverything, are the master of torture.

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
ill say what i say every single time an underrated thread comes up because you guys dont listen to what i say so i will hammer it into your skulls once and for all: JAMES HONEYMAN SCOTT IS THE MOST UNDERRATED GUITAR PLAYER OF ALL TIME!
Malcolm Young, Phil Cambell(motörhead), Fast Eddie Clarke (former motörhead), Euroboy(turbonegro) and Justin Hawkins (his solos are some of the best I've heard!)
Quote by NoQuarter2
Brian May is totally Under rated as is Malcom and Randy Rhoads

100% agree brian may is one of my favorites over hendrix in his live concerts
Mike Bloomfield _der rated!
"We got used to, with the amps making sure that people could hear the guitars, because it was obvious we were a guitar based band, we didn't wanna sound like a strumming, electrified folk group or something"- Angus Young, The Guitar Show
well.. i think Dave Murray is wayy under-rated from how much ive heard of him so far. i mean. does anyone know who he is? he is by far in my opinion.. the best guitarist.

also, brian may, randy rhoads (R.I.P.) and george harrison (R.I.P.)
I truly am my own redeemer
Blindly I follow none but myself
Without fear I am
Unhallowed be my name

Myself am hell and hell I shall unleash

well i think its alvin lee...if u havent heard his songs with lyrics and all stuffs u havent seen much...hes faster way more better than mby half of what u said but ull say oposite anyway.i think we all have believes and persons who we believe its the best and in this case most underrated.there are many man of them that are very underrated and for that i feel very bad... and those guys who goes on komercials are bad and very much known...mostly but i dont say its only alvin lee,there are houndreds of them!

Steve Howe, Steve Howe, and Steve Howe.

Ok from all of these damn annoying threads I think we get the point that Malcom Young and Alex Lifeson are underrated. Perhaps, we've actually made M. Young rated.
