Bryce Dessner and Jonny Greenwood make ULTIMATEGUITAR.COM '20 best indie rock guitarists of all time'

This week's traditional Wednesday Question saw the people of UG community discussing the matter of best indie rock guitarists. Based on votes and about 180 comments, we summed this one up into a top 20 rundown. Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood comes in at #5. Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner from The National come in at #15.

Of course, there's no way not to mention Mr. Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. What puts him so high on this list are his incredible songwriting skills and his one of a kind guitar sound. There's no one else out there like Jonny.

Okay, we know that the rule is to have one nomination per one comment, but we'll let this one slide as Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National are both great players and make for one great guitar duo. Although not the flashy shredders you'd expect to see on a guitarist list, their talents are seen in their songwriting and intricate arrangements.
