For a long time i considered Hendrix the best guitarist.

Then when i took fake acid i saw Jimmy Page doing dazed in confused live from the Zeppelin movie and it blew my god damn mind.

Maybe Jimmy Page isn't as technically good as say Hendrix or Clapton but i think he has a better feel for what sounds good.

You're the autistic for disliking someone because they're old or popular or obviously good you fucking dipshit.

I love a lot of people mentioned in this thread, but you cant say someone like jack white is anywhere near as good as jimmy hendrix. Good guitarists ARE rare these days, i like dreamy synth pop as much as the next guy but it doesnt enshrine the guitarist in the same way a classic blues act does.

This is coming from someone who doesnt care for hendrix or like blues, but i can't deny how how they make guitars sing, Fucking douchebag.

Technical ability is just as if not more important as writing ability or feeling.
>>
>>554331387
I have professional concert guitarist and violinists very close to me. They both agree that speed is only to impress. Speed means muscle memory, meaning lots of practice on one thing.

Imo versatility and technicality over speed any day.
>>
>>554331539
Actually not, if you can play very fast you can be skilled, but if you can't create a piece that has a special sound to it, you are not very good as an artist. That's why almost no legends of the guitar did very fast music, they may not be fast, but they were creative.
>>
>>554331534
I agree, but the other guy didnt say that wasn't the case! Playing fast and clean does show a reasonably good level of technical ability and makes you a good guitarist. BUT being a good guitarist does not mean you're a good musician. You can be the worlds fastest player and have reached the absolute pinnacle of technical playing, but if your music sounds like shit, who cares?

What is it with you and dads? I like hendrix and Page because i'm deeply impressed when i see them play.

Why dont you have the courage to like what you like instead of avoiding popular names because you think you'll look uninformed? Are you deeply insecure anon? Are you projecting your insecurities on me because i like Hendrix and Page and you want to look special and informed because in reality your personality is pretty boring? Are you ok?
>>
>>554331821
Somewhat. But the songwriting and melody should overwhelm it. Let's compare two great Progressive bands Tool and Dream Theater

Dream Theater has amazing technical ability for each individual instrument. Each player (from Petrucci to Portnoy) each showcase their own ability to play fast, technically, and very random (scale wise, out of the ordinary notes and drum patterns etc.)

Tool has an amazing technical ability as a whole. Contributed with polyrhythms and rhythmic technicality as a whole. Adam Jones himself has a simplistic guitar style, nowhere near on par to Petrucci. The bass also follows suit to the simplistic style of Jones, but Danny Carey compensates for extremely complex drums. Overall there is a complex songwriting theme, but not an individual complex style.

Which band would you take to listen to for hours on end? Personally, I would pick Tool for the overall songwriting ability of the band. DT are astounding technical players and musicians, but they try to incorporate too much of their technicality into their songs.

Well I say beginner I've been playing 5 months I know 18 songs already and I practice 4 hours a day. Am I doing it right? I have a list of songs I have to get done by the end of summer and the last song on the list is Holy Wars by Megadeth, do you guys think I can pull it off? I'll be attempting it 9 weeks from now, I practice down picking all the time. So for example if I'm watching a youtube video or anime or something I'll be practicing at a steady tempo. Also have any of you tried out Rocksmith I've taken up the 60 day challenge on that too and I'm getting regular lessons from a guitar teacher.

He left Bloodbath to work on Opeth shit. Opeth was formed 8 years prior to Bloodbath. He's on two out of three Bloodbath albums. THE FIRST AND THE THIRD.

He stopped growling because he didn't like the sound anymore. He wanted to move in a different musical direction. Have you listened to Heritage or the new single from Pale Communion? He sings like a fucking angel. This would leave one to believe his VOICE WASN'T DESTROYED.

Holy shit the nitpicking.

We're not talking about his vocals. But his cleans are amazing and (imo) I like to hear them more than the growls, even dating back to BWP and Deliverance. But switching between the growls and cleans are still amazing.

Mediocre leads? How? He isn't playing fast, I know, but he can incorporate an insane amount of sounds and feel into his lead, including the acoustic. More of a proficient riff-writer and rhythm player, but his leads are more than mediocre.

qq more dude, I loved the shit out Opeth and they were my favorite band and main inspiration for a solid half of my music career. I own almost all of their albums, I know Still Life from cover to cover on 2 instruments. I spent thousands of dollars trying to nail their guitar tones. I've seen them in concert SIX times. I've met Peter and Martin Lopez, I've met Mikael walking down the street in Portland, OR when literally nobody else recognized him.

I have a right to my opinion, which is pretty well founded.

Great band but Mikael is horribly overrated as a vocalist and is really a mediocre lead guitar player. He writes good music, especially his acoustic stuff, but he's not a 'god tier' guitarist nor is he even close to god tier on vocals.

Another god-tier guitarist, one of the best I've ever seen live, nailed the shit out of every solo he played.

He doesn't play any combinations of notes that I haven't heard before. He spend so long building up chops to nt have a creative brain.
Compare him to buckethead. Buckethead can shred just as quickly, and on top of that, he can play so many different unique techniques that it makes every one else look like a clown. He also plays in kick ass bands, like his project with Tony Williams, or all his jazz fusion project. Bucketead can improv a tasty jam and then lay down some sweep tapping and blow everyone's mind. He's unbelievable creative and writes in every genre possible. Including dub step bluegrass pop classical horror movies funk jazz metal fusion everything man. Patteuci is predictable as holy hell.

>He doesn't play any combinations of notes I haven't heard before
I think you just went full retard. Would you like a prize? The rest of your posts are now proven invalid. I don't even have to say why.

That sounded like dog shit. You really thin that was a beautiful creative unique never been thought of before piece of art? You've gotta be kidding me. Listen to cab, or hermann Szobel, or even chick corea.

Opinion respected. At least you said his songwriting ability was astounding. I don't really agree on the mediocre playing part, but whatever. Vocals aren't something I really worry about when listening to music, so opinions are scattered.

Jari is amazing. Time II soon pls.

So you're telling me that you only listen to guys that play unique combinations of notes that have never been combined before? Pardon my redundancy.

You're going to use that argument then go on to talk about how Buckethead can play any genre. This entails the use of many chords, notes, scales, and chord structures that have been used over and over. I mean, I really don't understand what you were even trying to say there or how it is in any way shape or form a valid point.

Me dicking around over some jazz chords, all written on the spot, first take, only 8 years of self taught practice. In 8 more years, when I would have been playing for as long as John Patrucci, man I can't wait. There's nothing John can do that I can't.
