Slash is extremly overrated.

If you wanna hear a good guitarist/musician check out Yngwie Malmsteen and Michael Angelo Batio.

to be honest, i think that Malmsteen is over rated as well, the other guitarists on the G3 tours are so much better.

I hope you aren't mentioning Joe Satriani. He is a sketchy guitarist, he goes off beat in his songs too much, plus you can just tell he is nervous whenever he is doing a song. It just affects his style. Yngwie isn't overrated. I hardly hear his name mentioned as it is.

Vivica

we obviously move in different circles, i hear Malmsteen mentioned all the time, and i really don't like him that much.

Satriani is better yes, and going off beat can be good, its not always easy to do either.

Vai also, alot better, as is Petrucci.

you guys are fags. Slash is definitaly not the best guitarist , or even slightly comparable to some other guitarists. If you want good guitarists check out Buckethead , Eric Johnson , John McLaughlin , Steve Vai , Paul Gilbert , Yngwie Malmsteen , Paco De Lucia. Fuck there is so many guitarist better than slash

Vivica
01-21-2006, 09:02 AM
To Webby, me and Rage have had arguements over guitarists abilty on many an occassion, and you say you're sick of me having a go at other peoples opinions? thats what a discussion is about, sharing your views, simple as that.

i'm with Farlee on this one, except for Buckethead, i've never liked him, Paul Gilbert on the other hand is fucking amazing and wipes the floor with slash...

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. I find that Satriani bends notes more often than Yngwie. But with speed and clearity Yngwie rapes Malmsteen.

erm... do you mean Yngwie rapes Joe, or Satriani rapes Malmsteen? :D

i know what you mean about satriani bending sometimes, but he does play some really crazy stuff!!

when i've seen video's of malmsteen it just seems like his skill is abit limited, like he just chooses an scale and plays as fast as he can within it, which i just find abit boring, i know Satriani is similar, but with some Vai-esc whammy etc thrown in, he's kinda in the middle of G3... if you get what i mean.


also, Malmsteen is the only one out of all of the amazing guitarists mentioned by ourselves and Farlee who i've seen smash two guitars during the same concert.... its not big and its not clever...

farlee
01-21-2006, 09:41 AM
then again malmsteen has the biggest ego in the world

Vivica
01-21-2006, 09:43 AM
i dunno, Satriani knows he's the shit...

Malmsteen just reminds me of Meat Loaf for some reason...

to he honest, he's one of the few really technical guitarists out there who throws guitar swings into pretty much every other song... so respect for not being boring i guess :-!?

ahahahahah Yeah sorry. That was the typo of the week.

Yngwie is good at all kinds of styles. Listen to Black Star, not as fast as his other stuff, which sounds good.

page, hendrix, mike bloomfeild, clapton, duane allman, iommi, jeff beck, dave gilmour, ritchie blackmore. those are great guitarists, petrucci pisses me off, yngwie is cool, steve vai is tolerable, satriani is gay. michael angelo batio is fucking ***** all that shit he does on 4 guitars is just a show, its all easitly playable on 1 guitar. slash is a really good guitarist actually. buckethead is absolute ***** he's a fucking faggot. if we're talking skill here, there is no real winner. if were talking style then its an opinion, i think all the guys i mentioned above have the best style and all that. included in style is also albert hammond and nick valensi and johnny marr and mick jones and robbie robertson and mark knopfler

god i hate people who think that slash is amazing! hes not.
if you play guitar all of his stuff is based on pentatonic scales which are really easy, he was only good in guns n roses, now his whole ego thing sucks.
hendrix,synyster (sp?) gates, kirk hammett, jimmy page, and practically every other good guitarist in the world absolutely own him.
he's really over-rated

You cant just dismiss him, Hes still a very good guitarist. Also for the pentatonic comment, You just bashed most of the guitarists you said own him with that comment.

diamentic (sp?), and other types, slash's stuff is just normal ***** i could learn half his stuff if i tryed enough
at least they vary
plus its just his whole ego, and with a stage name like slash i suppose it isnt his fault lol, but he smokes everyday and is fat and he used to be thin and in shape, all he exercises is his fingers nowadays.

slash isnt a stage name, steven adlers father used to call him slash when he was little. smoking every day has to do wtih being addicted, not to be cool, and why the fuck do you care if he's fat or not, he's in his 40s, most people get fat around there. and you really think jimmy pages stuff is really that hard, it isnt that hard, and kirk hammet is just not cool, simply put

who the fuck cares what his fucking torso looks like, are you fucking gay, the thread isnt guitarist in the best physical shape, you homo. also damo, next time you want to place a bet on someone not being able to play a solo, make sure it really is as hard is it seems, because nighttrain is great song and the solo is cl**** but its not that hard.

oh and randy rhoades isnt there probably because after quiet riot he became gay
