Johnny Thunders, Bob Quine, that bloke from Television, Deniz Tek, Captain Sensible...basically a load of punk guitarists.

And no, I don't know that bloke. Because I don't like shred too much
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!

i know he is now heard of more than he used to because of guitar hero. but i think that buckethead is still underrated most people have heard of jordan but that is not his best song even

The guy from Klaatu was pretty awesome. if you don't know then google, and then purchase some albums your ears will rejoice.

good songs, anus of uranus, calling occupants of interplanetary craft, around the universe in 80 days.

Cral Roa.
Mostly noted for his work in the Jazz Fusion band The Magic Elf.

I dunno, I don't think I've heard a song by him that I didn't like.
Look him up on myspace. (at school, sooz no link)

I don't think Jonny Greenwood gets all that much recognition, but I could be wrong.

Believe or not but half of my friends cannot stand DimeBag Darrell. They say he is blown way out proportion... I think their idiots

Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I'm gonna call Izzy Stradlin, listen to his solo stuff, he is really impressive.

Edit: forgot Doyle Dykes, gay name (see what I did there) but awesome finger picking man.

Mikko Lindström.

No matter who I talk to, even the fans of his band(s), have ever heard of him.

Society's doing great. There's a rise of people like PlayMadness. I feel pretty good about the way things are going.

guthrie govan is possibly one of the best players I have ever heard. (Funny coinsidence is that I only know of kotzen due to a guest solo he played on guthries album).

Allan holdsworth is another fantastic player not many people have heard of

I heard the search button is pretty underrated, though he can't shred too good.

izzy stradlin is incredibly underrated, just because he played as a 'rhythm guitarist' for slash. malcolm young also, even angus constantly says that hes the better guitarist, its just that malcolm likes to drink and he thinks drinking would mess up his lead guitar playing. brad whitford of aerosmith is practically unheard of, but hes pretty good as well.

I can't stand HIM, but I've seen a video of him improvising at a show, and he really is pretty damn good, and his playing is really tight and neat.
I just really don't like his bands.

How is Herman a douche? He isn't arrogant or anything, he actually makes fun of himself quite a bit.
