Over rated guys for me are guys like polyphia, and modern stuff of that genre, to similar sounding. Their albums are almost like 1 hour long songs rather than a varied journey.

Under-rated guys for me are Tramaine, Marco Sfogli and Al Jospeh. All of these put music first. In particular, Tramaine is known for shredding at stupid speeds accurately, yet sparingly does it on his album 'Heavy balance'. Which I thought was a great sign of how an artist should approach guitar music

I only had to go back a few pages to find it. I've said this for years.

Listen to "Rumors". It's a masterclass in phrasing.

over rated i a long time have feeled yngwie malmsteen. He is a good player but i kinda feel he hardly go outside his comfortzone. There is more over rated players to ofcourse.

Under rated i see curt cobain. Ok he no longer live but alot of people says he cant play guitar good. But in my opinion he was actually alot better then alot gived him credit for.
