  • Great topic although I think it’s a bit early to say Kris Barras is underrated he’s only just starting out after years doing martial arts in Asia. Seen him last month great guitarist can play a lot of styles, should be labelled as one to watch.
    Just recently found Leif de Leeuw, listen to Once and for All (Live) on You Tube, guitar starts at 5 minutes (if you don’t like the female singer), but the whole live album is great.
    Another worth a listen is Jay Jesse Johnston.
    Hope people keep posting, the Eric Tessmer Band is a great call ,and agree with all Gary Milligan’s selection.
    Alan Nimmo was also mentioned, has to be seen live, although I don’t like his move to classic rock ,waste of his talent.

  • 5 episodes of “under-rated guitarists” and you haven’t mentioned Ryan McGarvey yet??? Any un-believers out there need to check into his recently released Live at Swinghouse album….

    • We’re certainly familiar with Ryan and have featured him in the past. We’ll likely see him in a future video. We’re waiting on a review copy of the new live album!

      • Thanks for your reply. I knew you guys would be familiar with Mr. McGarvey. I was just hoping he would make one of your most under-rated guitarist features, because I think several folks that tune into BRR may not be familiar with him yet.
