Post Best guitarists AKA- The "I'm right, you're an idiot" thread
This should be interesting, or die on it's arse.

I'm currently listening to Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, Mick Ronson is one of my all time favourite guitarists. So, who do you think should get a mention? Who do you think is woefully under or over rated?

So...
Image
Just listen to anything on ZSATSFM, it's genius. His arrangements on that album are amazing.

Image
Wino. I know, obvious stoner/doom fan is being obvious, but I do really rate him.

Image
Dave Gilmour. Really doesn't need explaining.

Image
Brian Setzer. Just go and listen to some of his work if you doubt it.

*edit*
And the first person who mentions Dimebag gets a kick in the balls.

My top twenty, with Mad Mickey at number 1, and the rest in no particular order -

1- Michael Schenker

Tony Iommi
Adrian Smith
Dan Spitz
Randy Rhoads
Tom G Warrior
Malcolm Young
Fast Eddie Clarke
Richie Blackmore
Trey Azagthoth
Chuck Schuldiner
Eddie Van Halen
Jake E Lee
Brian Robertson/Scott Gorham
Glenn Tipton/KK Downing
Johnny Fean
Paul Kossoff
Leslie West

In terms of overrated, Chris Broderick is technically flawless but utterly tedious. Zakk Wylde was one of my favourites up until around 96, but he bored me to tears after that. And while he was an excellent guitarist, I'm tired of fuckheads who think Dimebag Darrell is the be all end all of metal guitar.

I'm one of those people who really doesn't give that much of a shit who the guitarist is in a band and what they're playing. I just care that it sounds good to me. So I don't have a favourite guitarist.

Do you play guitar? This is probably one for musicians, it's the sort of thing musicians will bollock on about for hours. Do you not have any appreciation for the skill of individual band members? It's true that it's about the whole picture but do you think that there's something to be said for a band being the sum of it's parts?

I would say Randy Rhoads but I don't think he would cut it nowadays so it must be Vim Fuego.

To his credit Vim could play Stairway to Heaven by the time he was 12. I've never been that big a Randy Rhoads fan to be honest.

Of course he would cut it, his work is instantly recognizable, beautifully realised and composed, moving and timeless, unlike many modern metal lead player.

I don't know if anyone can come close to Fuego. Maybe Tufnel. :D

Really? There is no one who really moves and inspires you?

I remember Yngwie J. Malmsteen's name being banged about when I was a nipper and Steve Vai. Don't really know their work apart from Mr Vai who was very cross in that film.

My favourite guitarists are usually the ones who write the best music (Buzz Osborn, Stuart, John and Barry from Mogwai etc.), which I suppose judges them as songwriters rather than as guitarists. There is one guitarist who I think is genuinely brilliant though, and that's Ichirou Agata.
