I find the inclusion of Mike Lee a little odd. While I love the guy as a vocalist, I  have never seen him play anything but an acoustic guitar. Even then, it was only a handful of songs.

I think Bruce Fitzhugh, Larry Farkas, and  Dennis Cameron should've been way higher

I think Gary Lenaire should be in the top 5

Other than that there's many here I have never even heard of so I couldn't be an adequate judge tongue

My first thought was "are there 100 truly great guitarists in Christian rock?"

It's a weird list that feels like it's trying to appease everyone by randomly mixing famous, obscure, pop, metal, etc. without much real thought given to the actual rankings outside the top 10 or so. I realize that taste is subjective, but for example, I don't know of anyone who associates Newsboys with virtuoso guitar work. So how is their guitarist ranked well ahead of a pioneering underground legend like Larry Farkas or a truly world-renowned player like Robert Randolph?

I remember when they did this.  The rankings were based on popular vote (I think you could vote for 10 per ballot, 1 ballot per day?).  It was basically a popularity contest.

Oh bugger! I didn´t see that the thread existed already.

Well any way..

There is great players on the list for sure. I don´t quite agree with the ranking, and there is some fillers.

I was wondering why either of Rage of Angels guitarists were not on the list: Frank DiCostanzo / Greg Kurtsman?

But he plays that acoustic so well
