    The twin guitars for Thin Lizzy are some of the best of all time

    Mike Sifringer = riffcrafter extraordinaire (once upon a time, at least)

    Not all certainly, mainly Gorham/Robertson and John Sykes when he was in there.

    I'd say all of them from when they started the dual harmonies. Gorham/Moore is delicious, same with Robertson. Everyone likes to shit on Snowy White-era Lizzy but Chinatown and Renegade are fucking awesome.

    No mention of Tommy Vetterli means you're all gay

    Snowy White is feloniously underrated. Great player, not a personal favorite, but a great player. John Sykes is cool too, but I prefer his work with Tygers of Pan Tang.

    Masayoshi Takanaka from Flied Egg (and a billion other things) is an awesome progressive rock/fusion/psychedelic guitarist. Really been getting into his more solo based projects lately.

    trey azagthoth is my all-time favourite guitarist. i love his soloing and the originality he brings to morbid angel. other favourites include chuck schuldiner, dimebag darrell, michael amott, jeff hanneman and bill steer.

    i personally never liked kirk hammett, i find his playing mediocre. but james hetfield is pretty good.

    Don't have favorite guitarists/musicians, anyone can play a guitar, if I had to say what are good metal guitarists would go with the guitar players from Mercyful Fate,rythmn lead wise they nail it.

    Anyone can pick one up. It takes actual talent to be able to play.
