    Probably easier (and shorter) to come up with a list of "over" appreciated guitarists. But it is all opinion anyway as there are no criteria. But if you consider record sales, Elvis Presley or Taylor Swift have to be pretty close to the top.

    I think Keith Richards is pretty underrated as a guitar player.

    My answer would be why is not Roy Buchanan considered no 1 on these lists ? But I might be alone on that one

    But still why is Roy Buchanan left off these lists ? When even Clapton Said. ”His the best in the world”.

    Jonny Greenwood is awesome. He sits back and serves the song before anything else. Chris buck is also great. His feel is so good and whenever I watch his videos I get jealous.

    Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke. He plays anything from bluegrass to hard rock, and he plays none of his solos twice the same way. And then there's Allen Collins, Ed King and Steve Gaines from Lynyrd Skynyrd. I love them for making the band shine, not themselves.
