Best unknown guitarist?

  1. [EDIT] Excuse the poor title. I'm just sharing videos of a guitarist that I think are truly amazing.

    Mariusz Goli. Check out his videos. My current favorite...

    Depends on the definition of unknown. There's a million of amazing dudes on YouTube.

    However, unknown to the regular music fan could be someone like Steve vai

    I once heard this guy play the most outrageously awesome guitar solos, easily P4P GOAT. No clue who he was though.

    Can't think of any unknowns. I'll just say Chris Poland, and Yngwie Malmsteen for now.

    no one with 9 million hits on their youtube videos should be called unknown

    Any who only has three fingers and can still wail on the guitar is legit.

    Marc Okubo and Misha Mansoor don't get enough credit even in the metal scene, so them.
