Who is your favorite guitarist?

Recommended Posts

Joey Allen from Warrant. ALWAYS comes out with great solos. Always

I thought Mike Slamer actually played most of them. :unsure:

On the first release Mike did play most of them..he also helped

Joey and Erik construct them to...Joey is really good, Erik is okay..

 

Joey is really good and Erik is a solid Rythm player, nothing more.

Solid rhythm players are probably harder to find... :(

 

That's a very good point but you don't have to worry about that since you can play both lead and rythm. :tumbsup:

True for recording, but live it's nice sometimes to have a solid backing rhythm. Obviously I'm so phenomenally talented that's not really an issue... :anon:

:tumbsup: Backed you do tear it up live!!

I'm not supposed to tell anyone this but Pete was just doing the guitar playing equivalent to lip-synching.

There were actually two midgets back stage at Dakota Rockfest playing all of the guitar parts.

They went by the names of "Mini Pete" and "Minnier Pete". Strangely enough they both were seen drinking Blueberry Coffee. :lol:

Either that or because they have little hands that's why you needed two of them. :lol:

 

You guys were lucky that Damon was able to fit those two little guys in luggage prior to crossing the Canadian border. :tumbsup:

I think I mentioned Ace, Adrian Smith and Mustaine but I didn't mention Ferrari I don't think and him and Bryan Jay are one of my fav Geetar duos. I mentioned them in that thread from a few years ago when we all named are fav Guitar tandems. :tumbsup:

WOW What a question... To go with invention, melodicism, speed, technique, rhythm, soloing ?

Not going in order 'cause there's too much guitar swimming in my head to narrow it down to one !

Hendrix Stevie Ray Al DiMeola Michael Schenker Vinnie Moore

Beck Buddy Guy Michael hedges Gary Moore Joe Satriani

Page Wes Montgomery Jay Graydon Randy Rhoads Yngwie

Clapton Albert King Steve Lukather Eddie Tony McAlpine

Peter Green Robert Johnson Steve Morse Dave Murray Joe Bonamassa

 

 

 

I really like Warren Haynes right now.

 

If you love great acoustic playing check out Sam Pacetti

Nice picks, also couldn't help noticing your favorite CD, I love IME, I've got a few of their CD's, criminally underrated IMHO.

 

Punctuation is for sissies anyway... ;)

thanks, charvel ! "Dig" absolutely blew me away; and still does! I saw them at the Cannery in Nashville right after the release and they were an awesome live band. I really wish they had made more albums.

 

Oh, and I forgot Allan Holdsworth - supposedly from whom EVH got his inspiration for fingertapping...

I'm amazed NO ONE mentioned Brian May; not necessarily THE greatest guitarist ever, but still one of my favorites, along with Schenker, Iommi, Page and Blackmore.

9 years later I reply... duh...

 

Have you heard all of their albums? I didn't know they had done more than Dig for quite some time, but they're all pretty good IMO. :D
