Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

John petrucci is probably my favorite but there are so many that come to mind.. Paul Gilbert, Randy Rhoads, Vai, Satch, DiMeola, Jason Becker, SOO freakin many good guitarists came out in the 80's
#35
well obviously top 2 are Slash and Rhoads. Rhoads had better techniques, but Slash's stuff always sounded more pure and melodic.
#37
randy rhoads. pretty obvious. eddie comes close but not quite there yet
#39
rhoads
Gibson Les Paul Custom
Fender American Tele

F/S:
Orange Rockerverb 50
Orange PPC412
#40
Satch
he pretty much started the whole rock instrumental genre

also Randy Rhoads died in 1982 so he should be considered as a 70s guitarist no?
