Joe Satriani, Buckethead and Steve Vai are excellent virtuosos.
Mikael Aakerfeldt, Mikael Aamodt, James Hetfield are excellent within the metal genre.
Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Buddy Guy are the absolute kings of blues.
I mean, it's just ridiculous to name one single person, because they can't possibly contribute to the entire palette of music the different genres has to offer. The only thing we as listeners have to do, is enjoy everything music has to offer. And there's never an abundance of excellent guitarists.
Orianti is pretty good as well....

He defiantly deserves a spot on the list with the other greats.
