You always here the greats names as we all know who they are, but I feel there are some other's deserving also. I am probably leaving out a few and these ae in no particular order as Rolling Stone chose to rank them which you CAN NOT DO.

Peter Green
Rory Gallagher
Tommy Bolin
Django Reinhardt
Michael Schenker
Leo Kottke
...and me

Feel free to add some more...like I said I am probably leaving some out
fee

Not rock n' roll or traditional guitar, but Rolling Stone missed the boat when they didn't include Chet Atkins in their top guitar players issue.

Great forum, just remember 'underrated' doesn't mean 'not-famous' just 'UNDERRATED". ROY BUCHANAN, danny gatton,TOMMY BOLIN,tony iommi,PETER GREEN, michael schenker, TERRY KATH, albert lee, RITCHIE BLACKMORE, craig chaquico,LES PAUL, willie nelson,ALBERT KING, freddie king,MICK TAYLOR,clarence 'gatemouth' brown, SONNY LANDRETH, frank marino,MAGIC SAM,allan holdsworth,JOHN FAHEY,mato nanji and DEREK TRUCKS. CAPS mean more underrated --hey just my opinion but these guys being underrated has been a pet peeve of mine for years! Again great Idea for a forum, thanks jszfunk!

I'll second Brian Jordon, he was playing some way out funky wah-wah opening
for the brothers at nissan last summer. too much. I dig this cat.

I'll add Jeff Pevar from CPR and Jazz is Dead, and Jesse Gress from
Todd Rundgren and the Tony Levin Band. Jeff is one of my favorite
players (great singer too) and Jesse nailed Adrian Belew's parts when TLB did
elephant talk. His transcriptions for Guitar Player are fabulous.

I don't see Peter Green as being underrated. He is a giant in rock guitar.
he got raves for his work with the Bluesbreakers and early Mac was outselling
the Beatles when he wigged out on drugs. Other Great Players
(like carlos santana) rave about him all the time. You can clearly see
his influence on Carlos. How does all this make him underrated?

I saw the Micheal Shenker Group last night. He was great.
The Opening Act was another former Scorpion guitarist: Uli Jon Roth.
He was better.

Peace
John

Dominic Gaudious
Jeff Pevar
Roy Buchanan
Neal Schon
Pat Metheny (just don't see his name much in the forum)
Russ Freeman

I just watched the 1971 PBS documentary about Roy Buchanan, amazing. Any aspiring gutarists out there should seek this one out. I like what Roy says: "success as a guitarist is not being famous, it is something you feel in your heart." A friend of mine made this comment about it:

Yes, this is the legendary show that many a guitar hero of the time went ga-ga over. In particular, Jeff Beck recollects how he happened to tune into this show while in a hotel room, and he became mesmerized by it. Jeff I suppose sought out Roy after this, and the two "traded" styles on a couple of LPs. One of Jeff's most famous performances, Cause We've Ended As Lovers, was dedicated to Roy, as he replicated some of Roy's sound, esp the crying volume swells at the beginning, directly attributable to The Messiah and Sweet Dreams.

Sounds like a great show. I know Schenker has had a tough time the last few years. Uli can really take it over the top though. Sometimes a little too much but he is amazing anyway. Did they play together at all?

They were going to jam at the end. But I left aobut 1:30. it was very loud and
the club was very hot. and I had to be up early this morning. ANd the MSG
set was pretty much the same one I saw about 6 months ago.

Jon played The Hendrix arrangement of All along the watch tower. It was pretty
much note for note. (of the stuido recording) But the vocal was more Dylan than Jimi.
Some great blues playing before that. My only complaint
was no drummer. they were traveling light. no amps either. Digital rigs direct to
the soundboard for Jon and the second guitarist. The keyboard played ran the
drum machine and played the bass lines also. Still Jon played some great stuff. They used a projector
for images behind the band and that was very effective. It really fit the playing.

Peace
John

I don't know about underrated but somebody you probably don't know is Johnny Hiland out of Nashville. He is highly thought of in the industry. Go to johnnyhiland.com and hear some clips.

I think a better title to this thread should be - under "appreciated" guitar players instead.
Someone like Derek or Dan Toler or Jimmy Herring are certainly not underrated because of the people that know about them certainly know how talented and gifted they are. These players might be more under-appreciated because the masses have no idea who these guys are. In the 1970's everyone knew who Page, Clapton, Gilmour, Howe, Townshend etc. were but today the best guitar players are mostly unknown - not to folks like us or jamband fans of course but most people don't know them..

Some of my under-appreciated guitarists would be players like Steve Kimock, Todd Mohr, Tim Reynolds, Brian Jordan, Fareed Haque, Johnny Hiland, Sonny Landreth, Eric Krasno, Julian Lage, Mitch Stein of SKB, Audley Freed etc. - these guys are the best of the best and are still virtually unknown players...

Cool thread though - it just needs a little tweak and re-direction.

Jimmy Herring is definately flying under the radar. He flat out kicks arse. Phil & Bob see it, and that's about as good as it get's in my book.

Derek ain't no slouch either, but he's got sony in his corner.

Anyone else here into Buckethead?

He is both incredible and underrated/unappreciated.

There never was before, and there will never be after another JIMI HENDRIX! There are also a lot of under rated guitarists: Steve Vai, Mick Mars, Lindsey Buckingham, David Gilmore, Joe Perry! Or maybe they have been rated well. This is a great subject of dispute I'm sure. Peace & Love
