Legends are not included on the list as they have carved a name in the Philippine music scene
which would include Noel Mendez, Cesar Aguas , Perf De Castro ,Manuel Legarda , Wally Gonzales ,Tirso Ripoll Ronald Yumul , Frank Sinckol, Francis Reyes, and other opm legends of the craft are not to be included

1.2 Based on their video performance on their respective channels or Facebook page/groups video entry/upload
2.1 This is something that many would argue but to some extent this goes out to those who locally/(or)internationally have been chosen to represent a brand or product but is not limited to only that account!
2.2 The Guitarist are in a network that most modern age Pinoy rockers have known and are familiar with
2.3 Again Google Search is our friend.The names posted when searched on Google would bring up at least the first 20 hits under theirs
3.1 At least someone others have heard of which does not include your neighbor who shreds all night but its only you who knows the guy.
3.2 Would at least have a strong fan base/following

Modern day maestro Jack Rufo! A guy who has been here, there and everywhere! Plays for Kitchie Nadal, now with Novus Luna and of course then with the OPM legends Neo Colours! As the list creator he was supposed to be in the all time list of great pinoy guitarist but no one can deny that he still is up till now in the circulation of things in the guitar community! Official International Ibanez endorser and JB Music
One of the best fusion guitarists ever! You can probably hear it in his own song entitled "aratig". He ripped it up there, with some Greg Howe outside playing and other modern day techniques. He just shows that speed isn't everything.
The Philippines "Tone" guru a blues master known in the circle of guitarist! Played with opm rock legends Sugar Hiccup and now with his own group named after him! Endorse Kustom Amplifiers and QDV Store! His knowledge and insight for the instrument is astonishing! Some may call him a veteran but he still is the source of inspiration of most guitarists today
His playing moves people. Not because he wants to 'move' them, but because that's what comes out of his heart.
His sound is AH-MAY-ZIINGG! A talented young guitarist and musician. This kid can wow a crowd and get them on their feet! Can't wait to see him really hit the billboards. The Music Industry really needs to pay attention to Bone and share his music on the Radio... A S A P!More comments about Ernie "Bone" Pagligaran
Great tone, amazing guitar solos, exceptional band. His way of composing music is unique. Prog-rock on!
He is marketable, has great style and speed, and a great ear~ Totally cool fellow that will rise to the top soon! PROG ON - C J J
Here is why he is number one!
Skill wise he is indeed one of the best if not the best! Appealing to the public as tapped to endorse Caparison Guitars, ESP Guitars, Albion Amps(He even endorsed Kustom and Blackstar before) Graptech endorser and a whole lot to go with it!
Almost every new breed rockers would know his name and his band Fuseboxx, they are just simply one of the best technical bands around.

"Incredibly proficient in the technical side of guitaring. His technical skills is undeniably great also. Nearly comparable to guys like Michael Romeo and the likes... He's also the very first Filipino to be endorsed by Ibanez guitars. If you like to discover this guy's talent, buy Eternal Now's debut cd. "
Chad is the only guitarist I know who can educate, inspire, and play all different genres solidly from Metal, to Fusion, to Country, and Blues. His stint with Stu Hamm and being the first Ibanez endorser in the country is enough credential and credibility. His theoretical knowledge and musical influences are ocean deep.
One of the best technically and one whose name has been etched in guitar virtousity. Ibanez endorser and Eternal Now's Guitarist! A new age Perf De Castro and one whose playing can only be equalled by him! Listen to Eternal Now and behold by his lightning fused phrases

Patrick has been my bandmate for years already. Shared good, sometimes wasted night for gigs! Amazing talent! Ain't speed, its the heart! "THE ONE NOTE FEEL GUY!. But he shreds fast as well, but to tell you, IT THE VERSATILITY! LONG LIVE FIXED BRIDGE BAND- Dave.More comments about Patrick Cruz
Not just ya Youtube sensation that many quoted him. He is a finalist in Guitar Idol competition and has won international guitar awards! He might be unknown to some but his Youtube channel greatly proves his appeal and one of the very few Cebu based guitarist whose influence in Manila and other parts of the world are as equal in his own territory! A genius whose multi faceted playing endears a lot of players! A Guitarist's guitarist!
Idol.. He has the quality and style that would make music more colorful. His riffs makes the listeners jazzy and cool.. Great style of scale guitar music fayees..
Tone, timing and melody. His composition are very cool too. Heard his Super mario solo? You should listen to it. His "My playground" eargasmic. Most of all, the first Asian to be an instructor in guitar-masterclass.net. What more can I say?More comments about Fayeed Tan
The speed devil! Probably the fastest in the group and one that instantly creates viral videos that many young guitarist marvel upon! Philippines Yngwie Malmsteen! His speed left many begging for more! He plays with Indie Metal Giants Slash N' Burn!
