You forgot Tim Henson/Scott LePage from Polyphia!
May 21, 2014 at 12:48 pm
lol! Yeah right.
May 22, 2014 at 6:45 pm
Sorry but… Fredrik Thordendal can be delete from this list. This song is mostly the intro over 3 minutes and the lead guitar could play a kid whit no guitar skills.
But maybe its hard to play without fall asleep.
May 23, 2014 at 4:46 pm
What about Michael Romeo?..He doesn’t rank?…Romeo is better than most of these guys..
May 24, 2014 at 8:59 am
^I was totally going to comment that
May 21, 2014 at 6:55 am
I would say you left out Mikael Akerfeldt, the guys from Extol and Leprous, Cloudkicker, Tesseract, Jeff Loomis, and Arjen Lucassen from the likes of Ayreon, etc.
May 21, 2014 at 7:06 am
John Browne from Monuments!
April 11, 2015 at 1:27 pm
John Browne should be on this list..I agree with Patrick..
May 21, 2014 at 11:52 am
Where the fuck are Acle Kahney & John Browne
May 21, 2014 at 1:01 pm
You forgot Lee McKinney from Born of Osiris
May 21, 2014 at 2:14 pm
where is michael romeo from symphony x?
Enrique Javier Ordaz Ceballos
May 21, 2014 at 5:40 pm
Where is Michael Romeo??…Tony Macalpine??
May 21, 2014 at 7:47 pm
I feel that you chose the wrong Guitarist for Elitist. Sean Hall was the reason Caves/Earth were so great,and his solo work is fantastic.
While Julian (a great guitarist) has let the band go back into obscurity.
May 21, 2014 at 8:45 pm
angel vivaldi?! opeth?!
May 22, 2014 at 2:00 am
No Ron Jarzombek or Michael Wilton?….
May 22, 2014 at 3:06 pm
being a guitarist n a big prog metal fan, i rly cant agree to this list. maybe im just misinterpreting the word “top”. it should say “most talented”, if u got rid of the older guitarists. it is also very focused on djent, n lacks the presence of many great guitarists inside the prog metal-label as a whole.
May 22, 2014 at 3:51 pm
You forgott Mats Haugen from Circus Maximus
May 22, 2014 at 4:47 pm
omg, Luke Hoskin…
May 22, 2014 at 6:25 pm
May 22, 2014 at 7:41 pm
I think Kiko Loureiro (Solo, Angra) deserves to be in this Top ! He’s awesome ! Fast, technically amazing, and with a great musicality
May 23, 2014 at 4:02 am
Luke Hoskin from Protest the Hero!! He outclasses all but maybe 3 of the guys on this list.
June 21, 2014 at 5:31 pm
May 23, 2014 at 1:47 pm
How is Marco Sfogli not on here?
May 23, 2014 at 9:03 pm
Sooooo….No Michael Romeo?????? REALLY?!?!?!
May 26, 2014 at 2:55 am
Okay, uh, Josh Middleton of Sylosis is not only their lead guitarist (who plays rather complex and fast songs) but also their vocalist as well.
So I’m kind of wondering how he’s not up here.
Francisco David Amaya
May 27, 2014 at 2:47 am
Michael Romeo, The Guys From Redemption, and Protest The Hero… So Many 8 string here…
May 27, 2014 at 4:34 am
Really no Guthrie Govan? O_o
May 27, 2014 at 3:33 pm
It’s really a shame that there’s no Michael Romeo. He is one of the most inspirational guitarists.
This guy (Srđan Branković) is Serbian Michael Romeo
May 27, 2014 at 4:45 pm
Guthrie is awesome but he isn’t progressive metal!!! but where is Jose Macario from Arcadia Libre?
May 29, 2014 at 1:36 pm
Julian Rodriguez is exceptional. Wow !!
June 1, 2014 at 9:53 pm
Arjen Lucasseen, Michael Romeo, Mikael Akerfeldt… Anyway, there is a lot of good guitar players outhere in prog universe…
June 21, 2014 at 2:54 am
Yeah this list has some good guitarist but it glaringly leaves out some great musicians, Romeo, McAlpine, Henson, Haugen… just really crazy to leave those guys out
August 12, 2016 at 1:18 pm
Jakup Zytecki (Disperse), Plini, Tomáš Raclavský (Modern Day Babylon), Luc Lemay (Gorguts), Marc Okubo (Veil of Maya), Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka (Decapitated), Sithu Aye, Paul Ortiz (Chimp Spanner)
