Is Jimi Hendrix overrated as a guitarist?

Tons of people claim he's the best guitarist ever.

In actual technical ability in the modern era? Absolutely. Technical ability in his own era? Not positive, but probably not.

Influence? No, he's one of if not the most influential guitarists to ever play.

Is his music better than every other guitarists? A subjective question, there's more to musical than raw technical skill. Is his guitar music the best ever for me? No, not at all.

How would you pit Jimi against Eric Clapton?

My uncle said George Harrison was one of the best as well.

It was an entirely different era. At that time he was the best. Today? He's still relevant, but most certainly not the best of all time. However, if you were to remove present day technology that present day guitarists use, and give them Jimmy's older raw technology, many would fail to produce what he could.

Just something to ponder about before kicking his back in.

Honestly not knowledgeable enough on either to make a comparison. Jimi is I believe the more influential guitarist, though Clapton I think comes in second place for his era and possibly in general. Jimi's guitar tricks during live performances also made him way more exciting than Clapton. On a purely technical level? I honestly could not begin to guess. I'm not a guitarist myself and like I said not super knowledgeable on either, and the difference isn't staggering enough for me to clearly say.

I think I overall prefer Hendrix's guitar work though, though I honestly if anything generally prefer Clapton's songs from what I've heard.

Is the guitar solo at the beginning of the song "Through the fire and the flames" by "Dragonforce" as impressive as it sounds?

I always imagined it was an incredibly tough solo to pull off, but people keep telling me its good, but not great or super hard to pull off.

Does anyone really overrated Dragonforce anymore? Guitar Hero 3 came out twelve years ago lmao.

And yeah that's kind of accurate I think. It's pretty fast and long but it's just fairly standard tremolo picking I think, so if you have practiced to get the speed right and have the stamina it is manageable.

A solo like this for example I think is a lot harder:

I could be wrong though. Any guitarists still here on the forum? We had a few a while back but that was a long time ago.

Through the fire and flames is more difficult on guitar hero on expert than it is to actually play on guitar.
