Who are YOUR favorite guitarists...


Recommended Posts

Yeah, who are your favorite guitarists???


For me it is:


Edward Van Halen: Though being overshadowed by the weak legacy of the Hagar, his strongest playing was when Diamond Dave was still there.


Jimi Hendrix: 'Nuff said.


Pete Townshend: listen to the Live at Leeds album, and you'll see


Tony Iommi: His riffs were outstanding, simple, and heavy


Dave Gilmour: Dark Side of the Moon and Animals


Randy Rhoads: Awesome


and the rest...Alex Lifeson, Jimmy Page...I know I am forgetting some.

Joe "F**kin' " Perry! One of the greatest riff-masters/soloists of all time!


Slash: Man, I've just gotten into downloading his Snakepit stuff, and it's incredible. The reviews don't do it justice!


Yngwie Malmsteen: Loved his earlier stuff, especially his demos, but Inspiration and Concerto Suite are awesome!


Dave Meneketti: Y & T is one of my favourite bands, and his axe-work never fails to satisfy.


Randy Rhoads: He had a great feel to all his axe-work


Brian May: Have yet to hear a bad solo from this guy.


Nuno on 'Play with Me': that soloing is . . . :luv:


there's probably more, but these are my heavy hitters.

Kirk Hammett (even though I'm not a huge Metallica fan...he's still awesome)

Kim Thayil (Gotta love his primal sounding guitar riffs and solos)

Jerry Cantrell

Dimebag Darrell


They can all shred and come up with sick riffs. I'm big on guitar solos, and each of these guys has impressed me with their technical capabilities. Some of them are legends in their own right, and the rest deserve to be.
