A force to be reckoned with. I believe he's a master of the 'whinging bitch' style.

I was going to mention Johnny Marr. I'm not a fan of The Smiths mainly because of Morrisey, Johnny Marr's guitar playing is great though. Nice one on Marco Pironni too.

Brian May is a great guitarist, as soon as he starts you know it's him.

He rocks!

He also has a great perm. Just like Megadave.

I know it's obvious (or should be) but if this man ever changes his name he should change it to THE RIFF!

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?


Nope. I can sing, and I'm not too bad with composing a variety of electronic music (well y'know, Amateaurish stuff). Guitars don't fascinate me in the slightest. Same with drummers actually too. I kind of think I might be into the wrong music at times but yeah.

I don't think so either. I think a solid stable person can be better than others. Sure there is usually a creative force behind the band in the shape of one person or other, but I think what you work with is more important too. That plus I'm not too into the whole idolising people thing, I don't even "throw the horns" because of it. Seems too much like celebrity worship and I have a staunch dislike of that.


Might be long winded and probably not answer your question. It probably shows that I listen to a lot of hardcore/grindcore too which generally has a revolving door policy on most bands and their members.

Post Re: Best guitarists AKA- The "I'm right, you're an idiot" th
shit, we could be here all day, i'm just going to focus on guitarists in metal and rock(including all of its derivatives. e.g folk rock etc).


Virtuosos:

Jeff Beck
Al Di Meola
Marty Friedman
Greg Howe
Tony Macalpine
John Petrucci
Joe Satriani
Steve Vai


Songwriters(many have great technical skill too, obviously)

Azagthoth
Peter Buck(just solid all round. knows his instrument inside out, in all the _right_ way)
Denner/Sherman(the great unsung metal tag team)
Nick Drake
Page Hamilton(first 3 Helmet records have some of the best riffs of the 90's, easily)
Hanneman/King(upped the ante in every single category during the 80's, and unleashed some of the best riffs and creepy, unsettling melodies of all time)
Hendrix
Iommi
Ihsahn(progressive ideas but knows when to pull back and let the song do the talking)
Kozelek
Josh Homme
Robby Krieger(underrated)
Andy Laroque(again, underrated, did some great work with King from Abigail right through to the last couple of albums)
Johnny Marr
Mascis
Gregor Macintosh(one of the most imitated guitarists in metal over the last 2 decades, easily)
Murray/Smith
Mustaine
Anders Nystrom(guitar work on Brave Murder Day, Discouraged Ones and Tonight's Decision was sublime, for the most part, even if the vocals weren't).
Page
Omar Rodriguez(experimental, cool tones, great sense of melody etc)
Trey Spruance
Tipton/Downing
Tom G Warrior
Eddie Van Halen(virtuoso too, but mostly a songwriter that came up with consistently good riffs and melodies right up till the final V.H album, which was a complete dud)
Wyndorf(again, very consistent, always has been)
Neil Young



Miscellaneous:

Robert Fripp
Larry Lalonde
Marc Ribot

Post Re: Best guitarists AKA- The "I'm right, you're an idiot" th
Not saying they're the best, but here, in no particular order, are my favourite 20...

Tony Iommi - The Riff Master, basically. The reason I picked up a guitar in the first place.
Angus Young - So what if he's sloppy as fuck, he's got more energy than a sack of angry badgers. The second reason I picked up a guitar.
Steve Vai - Some say overly technical and soulless. I say bollocks. The reason I nearly threw my guitar away, muttering "I can't play that, it's way too fucking difficult".
Eddie Van Halen - Riffs, double tapping, spandex and substance abuse. Lovely.
Jeff Hanneman - The technical one in Slayer.
Kerry King - He's Kerry King. Don't argue.
Joe Perry - Sleazy, bluesy, frantic and melodic. Sometimes all at once.
Scott Ian - One of the most underrated rhythm guitarists in metal.
James Hetfield - Another quality rhythm player. Master of the downstroke. Oooer, missus.
Dave Mustaine - Loveable ginger, insanely talented egomaniac.
Dimebag Darrell - You probably thought Pantera were shit and Dimebag was overrated. Well you're wrong on both counts.
Paul Masvidal - You have heard Cynic, right?
Chuck Schuldiner - Deceptively talented. Took routine death metal and added layers and subtlety, album by album.
Michael Amott - Yes, he may have run out of ideas years ago but if you want a melodic solo in a death metal song then he's still your man.
Glenn Tipton - Not shit.
Adrian Smith - Murray's not exactly a slouch. Smith's just better.
Mikael Akerfeldt - Versatile and generally brilliant. The bastard.
Brian May - Instantly recognisable.
Billy Gibbons - Forget chart fodder like Sharp Dessed Man and Legs. Gibbons' Texas blues is where it's at.
Ihsahn - The best guitarist in Black Metal. End of.
