PostSubject: favorite guitarists (keep it mainly shred but you can throw in some other stuff as well)?   Mon May 03, 2010 12:50 am

Im a Randy Rhoads fan. Its almost required. Many say (i agree) that he was one of the first neo-classical metal guitar gods. Dont have to be a fan of Ozzy to appreciate his contribution to metal. Im huge fan of Jani Liimatainen. I wish he could come back to Sonata, but the new guy isnt bad either. Cain's Offering sounds promising as well. Michael Angelo Batio- ridiculous Chris Broderick- also stupidy amazing Michael Romeo- makes me want to cry. The last 3 almost make me ashamed to live. i have to go practice immediately after watching them. I know many people look down upon shred as un-legitamate guitar playing that lacks soul and passion but thats bullshit. YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOUL AND PASSION FOR MUSIC AND THE INSTRUMENT TO GET THAT GOOD. I think people who say that just want to make themselves feel better. I agree however that there are guitarists that are equally as good but do not necassarily show it and exhibit more taste. Guitarists like Neil Schon from journey (i was raised on them- i like them- dont make fun me:)) are superb. Those are some of my favs anyway. theres a bunch i missed. anyone got any others?

This has been brought up before. Try searching for topics before making new ones. To be on topic, Luc Lemay > all.

I tend to get the two mixed up.



Perhaps it's because I always require a tissue for both.

Eddie Van Halen
Andre Olbrich
Chuck Schulinder
I think the best guitar solo goes to Alex Skolnick or someone else. Seriously though, the Over the Wall solo (by Testament) is so awesome.

Very nice list LOR. I like much of what you posted. I too wish Jani would return to Sonata Arctica, but their new stuff sounds cool even though it's different. Cain's Offering sounds pretty good too, so I can't really complain too much.

I like how Brian May was included. He is actually a huge influence on me. Very melodic and underated player.

Why haven't you got rep yet? Oh well, I can fix that.

Most people here don't understand how amazing Boston is, they just think they're cheesy and fun. Well, I'll have each and every one of you know Tom Scholz is one of the most amazing guitar players around. I miss the soul in guitar playing...

I don't think I could pick a favorite guitarist...I mean..i love the guitarists of my favorite bands, but usually it isn't actually for the song playing. This is probably because I am not really into guitar. I do like Thomas Youngblood from Kamelot though, considering he composes most of their songs.
