The Best Guitar Teams

By 11k views 24 items tags f p @
Typical Best Guitarist rankings are not usually fair to the "team players" of great guitar bands. This list is for them - usually duos, but sometimes even triple-threat guitar teams. Some of these teams are "dual lead" guitars (they are all going to be Metal bands, often with Flying V's in the mix of course), others a more traditional lead/rhythm guitar approach, and still others are fluid. Most of the greatest rock guitar duos are on here, but I'm sure I've forgotten a few and will keep adding to this list. Note that given how fluid the lineups of some of the great hard rock bands have been (Thin Lizzy, anyone?), I've went with bandnames vs the names of the specific players.

This list is very hard to "rank" - everyone on this list is deserving, plus it's hard to compare Metal to Experimental to Rock in one ranking. But these are the cream of the crop for guitar playing duos.
