Basically, we all have our thoughts on who's overrated and underrated, but are there any guitarists you think are rated just as they should be in society?

These come to my mind:

Steve Howe of YES

Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young)

Robby Kreiger of The Doors (Although he is underrated as a composer. I think he was better than Jim Morrison)

Buddy Guy

Dave Matthews

I don't disagree, and I love Dylan, but he's really more know for being an amazing lyricist, rather than guitarist...although I did see him play a solo once on a DVD.

But so are some of the guitarists I mentioned too, so... =/

Lou Reed... really, it seems like all the people that hear him agree that he is awesome at the type of stuff he does. Same with Jeff Magnum form Neutral Milk Hotel. And who doesn't think David Gilmour is amazing?!?!?!

Tony Iommi


I totally agree. He's not underrated because people acknowledge his influence on modern music. He's not overrated either. Iommi is awesome.

Not the most skilled guitarist, but I do think, please don't freak out on me, he was more creative with solos (in terms of composition) than Jimi Hendrix. I like Hendrix, but I'm just saying...Gilmour wasn't nearly as repetitious...and I do like Jimi Hendrix a lot.

Yes I agree he wasn't/isn't the most technical guitarist but he manages to get so much emotion and so many creative ideas in his solos its just incredible.

Lou Reed FTW

Just about anything that has the word "core" or "grind" in it is guaranteed to suck 100%. I think I could make better music if I held a pick between my asscheeks and strummed.
