I've noticed that, he also uses incorrect right hand fingerings, like repeating his index finger multiple times rather than alternating between middle and ring fingers. His technique isn't necessarily "perfect," but he's still a damn good guitarist. As far as his right and left hand posture though, those are god-like

Dave Mustaine, his solos may be lacking and his singing garbage, but I don't think there is a single guitarist who can top his riffage.

Hendrix allegedly thought that Terry Kath was better than him.

No particular order:

Fred Frith, Robert Fripp, Carl-Michael Eide, Derek Bailey, Hasjarl (whatever his real name is, it's a bloody mystery), L. A. Spinetta, Caspar Brötzmann, Andrés Segovia, Davy Graham, Ernest Ranglin, Frank Zappa, Hans Reichel, John McLaughlin, Yusaf Parvez, Justin Broadrick, Allan Holdsworth, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Levene, Luc Lemay, Joni Mitchell...

I dunno. Probably more.

Little bit of his singing. He was known as the White Ray Charles

>>61607559
Yeah, most of his stuff is just generic guitar wankery, but some of his albums are actually really good:
>Population Override
>Colma
>Pike 13
>Albino Slug
>A Real Diamond in the Rough
>Electric Sea

And I remember liking a more recent Pike, Wall To Wall Cobwebs, but I don't really recall why I liked it or really anything about it.

Should I give Joe Satriani another chance? I see people praise him a lot and that he's an amazing guitarist, but I heard his first three albums and was very underwhelmed. I don't think it was his technique that was lacking, just the songs overall that left me bored.
