Top 10: The Hard Rock Chick's favorite modern day guitarists

Some of them are technically amazing, some of them are really fun to watch, and several are both…and many of them are highly underrated. These are all post-Slash era guitarists.

Tom Morello/Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman

Jerry Cantrell/Alice In Chains

Kim Thayil/Soundgarden

Robin Finck/NIN, GNR (the video is proof that he should keep playing the guitar and never, ever open his mouth)

Zakk Wylde/Black Label Society, Ozzy

John 5/Manson, Zombie

Tim Skold/KMFDM, Manson

Aaron North/The Icarus Line, NIN

Dean DeLeo/STP, Army of Anyone

Wes Borland/Limp Bizkit, Black Light Burns
