Who is your favorite guitarist?


Recommended Posts

I did a search and didn't find this thread but that doesn't mean it hasn't been done before in some form or other. Anyway it doesn't make sense to list them, just pick your favorite......

 

Mine is Victor Smolski of Rage.....

Without hesitation or question, as far as pure emotion, Jimi Hendrix. The riffmaster general is Tommi Iommi. But I'll always have a soft spot for Tony MacAlpine. Had the pleasure of meeting him once and he was truly a nice guy. Great guitar player as well.

Hi people!

I'm on vacation and if my girlfriend catches me typing, I'm dead, but I had to say something here.

The first time I was blown away by a solo was George Lynch, so I'll go with him. It's something we never forget. :headbanger:

If we were talking "team work", that would be Paul Gilbert and Bruce Boillet in Racer X! That would be a good topic too... :headbanger:

Be back next week, everyone take care! Don't drink too much, everyone arriving after you need to drink too! :drink:

Great call! Schenker was bad ass back then.

 

He certainly was mate, too many great guitarists sound samey, liked his distinctively melodic playing! :bowdown:

    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
    • Another one from this year that hasn't had much fanfare. These guys are always great value.  Very, very solid, Killer Hard Rock!!! I get a Robert Mason "vibe" with the vocals, which is always a good thing.                
    • Link to first single on its own:       I like it.
    • From the Frontiers Facebook page: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Enemy Eyes, a new melodic metal band fronted by vocalist Johnny Gioeli (Hardline, AXEL RUDI PELL OFFICIAL SITE, Crush 40). Johnny is currently putting the finishing touches on Enemy Eyes' debut album, which will be released this fall. In the meantime, the band is pleased to present their debut single, 'Here We Are' for your listening pleasure. Stream it on your preferred digital music service HERE: https://orcd.co/enemyeyes or jump straight to YouTube to listen HERE: https://youtu.be/jV_4j6d25R8 Of note, this will be Gioeli's 100th official release as a recording artist after decades of multi-platinum, gold, and critically acclaimed albums.
