To me the most overrated guitarist would be people like

Yngwie Malmsteen

Michael Angelo Batio,the guys from Meshuggah can play better than him.

Herman Li.

Kirk Hammett
Curt Cobain

Cobain was never considered highly rated as a guitarist in the first place. But overrated for me is Eddie Van Halen. And Jimmy Page is not overrated.

Santana is the best.

Santana is the best.

I'd rank Carlos with Joe Satriani and Al Demeola in terms of greatness. Oh, and Hendrix is overrated as well.

Cobain was was like #10 or #11 in one of the Rolling Stone top 100 guitarists of all time lists.

I pay that list no mind because they have Keith Richards at #4 ahead of Jeff Beck and BB King among others which is hilarious. Also, and this is coming from a Beatles fan, George Harrison doesn't belong in the top 50 let alone the top 20.

Keith Richards actually is a pretty damn good ax man. BB King say's he is one of the greatest.

Rock, I love you, but Clapton is so overrated. I'm not saying he shouldn't be in the top 20, but there are better. Hendrix was better. Stevie Ray Vaughn was better. Slash is better.


Joe Perry is underrated, also. He did an awesome cover of Dylan's "Man of Peace" on the Amnesty Dylan tribute (Chimes of Freedom).

Al DiMeola is vastly underrated. How he wasn't in the top 10 boggles the mind. Perhaps he doesn't ax his guitar into noise but as a pure guitarist there are few as good:

Jimmy Page is the man!!!

As a guitarist if I could play like anyone it would be Jimmy Page. He adapted many non traditional musical styles to rock roll. He was probably the most versatile of all the "Guitar Heros" of the seventies.

Me. I am overrated.

I just got back from a day and night in Clarksdale, MS and the ramp up for the Juke Joint Festival. Anyone who accuses me of playing the guitar at all has never heard Mississippi delta blues played by someone who really knows how.

Blues fans and students should go listen. It's mostly free.

I agree in respect to Malmsteen. Technically he's very good, and he's very quick, but I always thought his playing lacked feeling. I grew up being influenced by blues style guitar in Chi Town. So I tended to gravitate towards Stevie Ray, Page, Buddy Guy, etc. I agree with Eddie being over rated, but then again, if he hadn't suffered all those melt downs, he might have turned out awesome after he'd aged a bit.

I've heard of Jimmy Page,of course it seems on the studio albums of Led Zeppelin,that he was good ,but on the live recordings,he seemed to be sloppy.

It just seems that way because he's playing a guitar, not a ukelele, Don Ho.
