Are you insinuating that I do that? Becasue what Im saying is that although I certainly admire fast guitarists, I have more respect for those who are truly unique and innovative. Hence my previous statement.

I actually think you're the most open-minded Avenged fan I've met here. You don't have a coronary when someone suggests otherwise.

Thats cool. Frankly, Id rather hear that someone hates a band I consider good, than hear someone loves a band that I think is trash.

I don't even hate Avenged Sevenfold to be fair. If they hadn't been overly felched this year (which they have) by silly kids then that probably wouldn't have counted against.

I think they're just a standard rock band who are more technically able than most other STANDARD rock bands. I don't think they're the shittest band ever, I just think they're mediocre. You could do far worse, just also far better. I have nothing against them. If they actually started making music I consider to be worthy of buying, I'd do so.

As of right now, I just think they're a really mediocre rock band not doing anything different.

-AC

Hendrix and Santana are the best but Cobain is the most influential and my favorite.

It's clearly Hendrix. So who besides him?

Prince, in my opinion.

Brian May : underrated guitar player, has that unique sound.

Frank Zappa : not easy listening, but great technique !

Jimmy Hendrix : not a favorite of mine, but I respect him.

Segovia : almost perfect combination of warmth and technique

Morello : nah, I'm not that impressed.

Joey Santiago : nobody mentions him here ! The shame ! Vamos Joey, play that guitar !!

Clapton : was once truly amazing, now he's just a good guitar player.

Mark Knopfler : the man can write a song.

Satriani, Vai and Malmsteen : not my cup of tea.

Also I'd like to mention :

- Neil Young
- Joni Mitchell
- Jeff Beck
- Eddie Van Halen
- Jan Ackerman
- Jimmy Page
- Carlos Santana
- Angus Young

What are you on about? This is about best guitarist ever, so you can't choose who has talent or not. Morello is actually a blinding and innovative player.

I knew somebody would "disagree".

I'm not that fond of Morello and I don't have to justify myself to you. If you think he's the greatest guitar player of all eternity, that's good for you.

But, I hope you realize there is no such thing as "best guitar player", right ? It's all a matter of opinion, nothing more, nothing less.

I wasn't aware we were discussing preference, I thought we were discussing factually technically talented players of a high degree, of which Morello is one undeniably.

Prefering his style or music isn't relevant to him being a factually great technician. Some people don't like Vai or Satch, it doesn't mean they aren't two of the best players on Earth. You can't prefer who is talented and who isn't, if someone has an ability that puts them above others, that's how it is. It's quite contradictory of you to say Zappa has great technique and then say Satch and Vai aren't your "cup of tea". It doesn't matter if they are or not, if we're discussing ability. Like them or hate them, they are arguably the most talented from a technical standpoint than any guitarist you named. Hendrix is in my opinion the best ever, but not technically, because he's not.

I don't think Morello is the best ever, but you put it across as you not being impressed by him means that he's not got a place here, and he has. Unless we are discussing the music they make, then it's not subjective.

-AC

Fair enough.

The thread starter didn't specify what he meant : technically the best guitar player, or just the guitar player you like the most.

Doesn't matter though. Kyle Gass beats them all cool
