Tom Morello? I'd have to agree - it's amazing that most of the stuff he does is even guitar.

Actually I consider him way overrated.

Listen to Edgar Winter, he did most of those sound effects on his guitar years ago (not to mention that Tom Morello is a raging commie).

He does play some guitar, but I figured the banjo counts too. Listening to "Magic Fingers" right now.

Those two under rated? Half the guitarists I know wet their pants at the mere mention of the name Satriani. My neighbor (who has helped me greatly in learning guitar) has an idol to SRV.

They may not be as POPular as some other guitarists, but they aren't under-rated. They're well appreciated, as far as I can see.

Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme. Very talented guitarist....fast and articulate.

Michael Gurley of Dada. Superb tone, just smooth and stylish. One of the only "Alternative" guitarists that could actually really play.

Prince. Yes, that strange little freak. He's actually quite accomplished on guitar. Little do people know he's secretly played leads on alot of albums recorded at Paisley Park....under pseudonyms.

Some of the country guitarists are really talented too. Junior Brown, Vince Gill, Pete Anderson, to name a few very good guitarists.

My personal favorite guitarist that no one gives ANY credit to is Neil Gerardo (Pat Benetar's guitarist and husband). He wasn't a uber-lead player, but he mastered something ALL guitarists should strive for which is tastefully playing to the song. His playing served the song, not the other way around. Some of his leads were nothing but sounds or pinch-harmonics, others were fast and dense...but they always fit the song. Mark Knopfler is a master of this as well....but he's hardly lacking accolades.

Alex Lifeson from Rush

He just doesnt get the credit he deserves. Which can be understood, cause Geddy Lee is an amazing bass player, and the drummer Neil Peart is simply the best drummer in rock and roll.

+1 for Prince, the guy is incredible on a guitar... one of the few people who can do "Hendrix rhythm" and make it sound right (guitarists should know what I mean).

Vince Gill too, I saw him on Austin City Limits one night, he can freaking shred!

Underated by who?

Most other guitarists hold Beck, Rhoads, SRV, and those guys in pretty high regard. I know I do.

But my vote would be Gary Moore...I had the chance to see him about 15 years ago...he never tours over here, for some reason. It was at The Bayou, and semi-legendary little hole in the wall in Georgetown in DC.

Great place to see bands, it was small enough that you could get real close if you wanted to stand. Phenomenal guitar sound, only rivaled by Satriani at the same club. Satch had about 4 Marshall Silver Jubilee full stacks...Moore's amps were hidden.

After his first blues album, Gary Moore did Letterman...and absolutely demolished the place. Even Paul Schaeffer looked blown away. Moore was using a Saldano combo, and his Les Paul that Peter Green game him. This was about 10 years ago, and I don't know that he's has set foot over here since...not that I've heard about, anyway.

Moore could sell out stadiums in Europe, and barely get 500 people to a club show here.

His version of "Shapes of Things" has to be THE difinitive version, and I'm a big fan of Jeff Beck...but if you've never heard it, you should try and find a copy.

Neil Schon from Journey...one of the best I've seen in a while. Extremely gifted.
Phil Keaggy...plays better with 3 fingers than most can do with a complete hand and a lifetime of practice.
Elliot Easton-The Cars...an absolute genious. One of the few guitarists that had the ability to not only play notes, but could synchronize with the harmony and bass line at the same time. His solo's, like that of BB King, are simple yet perfect.
Stanley Jordan...the dude plays guitar like a piano. Plays melody, lead and bass at the same time. Definately worth a listen.

Yep, Gary Moore kicks ass. And the dude can belt out a tune vocally, too.

I think Jake E. Lee once said that if Moore wasn't ugly, every rocker would be out of a job.
