Well, the title might be a little misleading, but I was wondering into which guitarists you guys are and why. I'm not talking about who's the best technical player. Some of us know Satriani, Vai etc. can do some amazing stuff, but are they really that interesting to listen to?

I like raw players like Slash, Springsteen, Mike McGready. Another one I absolutely love, especially during the old day, is Mark Knopfler. His guitar during live versions of Private Investigations is amazing.

Discuss.

Presidents of the USA had some odd guitar setups, 2 or 3 bass strings on a lead guitar. Any more than that and they used to snap the neck. Made a nice and unusual noise.

I hate slash, dunno why. I like Dave Mustaine, even though hes old school. Hes just so cool. Kim Thayil of Soundgarden is also a great guitarist...he looks like the yeti.

Obvious one, Jimmy Hendrix and I also love the raw accoustic sound of Bob Dylan, as demonsrated in the epic song that is The Hurricane.

Do you guys rate the Edge from U2? His sound is quite unique, but I have a feeling that's all he is capable of. Not sure about that though.

The 80's records were pretty good IMO. I love their touring DVD through America. But I think they're shit ever since that Zooropa album

Noel Gallagher writes a good song but he's nowhere near a great guitarist, he even admits himself the guy he brought into the band (can't remember if it's Gem Archer or Andy Bell who plays guitar) is better than he is.

Joost I swear you listen to music my father loves, he is a big Dire Straights/Mark Knopfler/Springsteen fan. Do you like the Eagles/Don Henley? :mrgreen:

I always found it cool that you could hardly ever see Slash's face during his solos due to his massive hair.

Yeah, their first (self-titled) album is very catchy. . . .

Dude from Metallica is Rob Turijllo (sp?). I think the bassist from RATM is good, forgot his name.

What about the legendary Lemmy Kilminster?? He may not be the greatest player, but his image is excellent. Hes never going to die.

If you don't appreciate Ben's unique slide technique, then fair enough.
I take it you like the Mahavishnu Orchestra though? ;)
McLaughlin is one of the nastiest guitarist ever, so yeah i like them, props to the slide technique, but i wouldnt put him in the class of these other guys..

Plus he looks good in floral outlined spandex, which is always a bonus.

Ritchie Blackmore seems to be good, never heard him play to be honest, I don't really dig that 70's hardrock.

Have to say Kirk Hammett from Merallica is quality but I also fucking buzz off Deron Miller from Cky, Not that technical really but that guy knows how to put together a tune! From the true classics obviously love Hendrix and Page, both pure genius, their music will never die. For the more original stuff i like a lot of Sonic Youth they do some mental things with their guitars. First post so Ello everybody! :D
