Are we talking for a particular genre or all around guitarist. For me, Al DiMeola is the greatist underated guitarist there is. He started the speed riffs way before it became popular. Before Malmsteen, George Lynch, Van Halen and all the rest there was Al playing power chords and superfast riffs and off time signatures. He started the speed metal movement yet no one's even heard of him in these circles. Check him out. Early Al with Return to Forever group, Chic Corea duets and his many solo albums.
