    I couldn't think of a good title for this. [img]redface.gif[/img]
    Who are some of your favorite guitar players that don't usually get mentioned along with the typical group of guitar heroes (EVH, SRV, Clapton, Vai, Hendrix, Lynch, etc.)?
    Some of my favorites are:
    Elliot Easton of the Cars
    Joe Walsh & Don Felder of the Eagles
    Andy Summers of the Police
    John Sykes of Whitesnake/Blue Murder
    Frank Hannon of Tesla
    Kevin Eubanks
    George Benson
    Neal Schon of Journey
    Ty Tabor of King's X
    Chris DeGarmo of Queensryche
    Warren DeMartini of Ratt
    Chris Duarte
    Albert King

    I'd pretty much agree with all of those. Especially DeGarmo, DeMartini & Ty Tabor, three of the most grossly underrated rock guitarists on the planet.

    I'd also add:

    Chris DeGarmo AND Michael Wilton
    Andy Timmons
    Criss Oliva
    Allan Holdsworth
    Shawn Lane
    Wes Montgomery
    Jerry Douglas
    Alex Skolnick
    Jimmy Herring
    Lee Ritenour
    Larry Carlton
    Phil Keaggy
    Doyle Dykes
    Steve Gaines
    Vinnie Moore
    Tony MacAlpine
    Michael Lee Firkins
    Richard Leo Johnson

    I could probably name about 50 more, but those are the ones who immediately spring to mind.

    I could rehash a lot of the guys mentioned here, but we all know that there are some really underrated guitar players out there.

    As far as under appreciated goes, I would have to say that it's me when I play at home. The wife and the boy don't appreciate that at all. :irked

    I bet that all the guys mentioned above get the same thing at home!

    Man, I loved Jake's Badlands stuff. I just wish he would do something new. Besides covers for tribute albums, he hasn't put out anything since his solo album in 96...or maybe its actually since the Badlands Dusk album he put out from the vaults.

    Oh, cool to see Jimmy Herrings name pop up. I met him when he his old band Aquarium Rescue Unit was together...used to love them. Real down to earth nice guy who didn't know what to do and got kinda shy when I told him he was a big influence.

    Hayden Nicholas
    Michael Hedges

    Ah of course, How dare I forget Tesla's Mess N Finesse: Frank Hannon & Tommy Skeoch...those home state boys can really kick some ass.
