Jimi hendrix, bb king, kirk hammett, david gilmour, dimebag darryl, and so on
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 302677

Dimebag? What about Randy Rhoads, Jake E. Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neal Schon, Steve Clark.
 Quoting: m/walk

Yes dimebag.

What's with the question mark after it?

It said musically inclined only in the heading.

Get the fuck out noob
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1262720


Suck my balls you kangaroo fucker, dimebag is NOT in the same league as Hendrix, YOU are the fucking noob...
 Quoting: m/walk


I disagree, you need to look at the type of player. Hendrix did some amazing stuff, the way he would play a rythm part and add a lead was unheard of, no one before him had ever dome it that way. If you play guitar try castles made of sand, or just listen to it.

Dime on the other hand had his own tricks, listen to "floods", the solo on that song is one of the best that came in a 5 year radiusaround it. Dime was a lot faster than Hendrix, but Hendrix had feel, pantera was a machine that destroyed, Hendrix was more about peace n love.

Two greats that were ahead of the times for sure, both very influential.

Op I doubt seriously you play guitar.I have been playing for over 30 years and know my guitar well.While Slash may not be the best,he is a great player.One of the best leads ever created and played is on sweet child of mine.It is a flawless lead played with great technical skill and emotion.In fact I challenge any guitar player to play it and sound as good.

what's a 'good guitar' player for you?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1268310

Jimmy Page, Hendrix
Eddie Van Halen
Brian May, BB King, Santana

Those are really 6 good players. Slash is probably at number 20-25 if I was to make a list.

So, you think he's no good because he doesn't play a thousand notes per second, using hammer on technique and making dive bomber noises.

You are the one who is not musically inclined.

Since I've been loving you live in 73 at Madison Square garden. Never been a better performance. He established himself as a god in 73.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1262510


Exactly, no one can top Jimmy Page, especially circa 1973, live No Quarter is INCREDIBLE. Plus, Jimmy wrote the best songs and most enduring riffs, that everyone still copies, Slash will be the first to admit he copies Jimmy. Slash is ok, but not in the same universe as the legendary and versatile Jimmy Page, who is also the greatest producer ever, he produced all Led Zeppelin albums. The more the more you study Page, the more he boggles the mind.

Alex Lifeson, Joe Satriani, Trevor Rabin, Roger Steen, Glenn Tilbrook, Andy Summers, Steve Lukather, Al DiMeola, and Paco Delucia (the best flamenco player that ever lived) are all really great axemen too.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1122898

Thank you for naming Trevor Rabin!!! Lots of good names on your list like Summers and Lukather

Would like to add a few more:

Whats that quirky Acoustic players name (Australian?) he likes to play the Beatles a lot? He's a pretty significant player!

AGREED! Santana was great back then. His tone was amazing, dynamic. Now he sounds like every other guy.
I think he was using a Fender Twin back then, at least when recording.

+1 for Jeff Beck. Santana....he should have stuck with the SG and the Marshalls...he sounds like he's playing a buzzy toy nowadays with the PRS. He peaked with the acid and SG at woodstock.

You are correct, Sir!
I can't stand these 'deedledeedledeedle' guitarists. Fast is not good without intention. They're just using muscle memory and turning off their brains when they play those solos...

Oh jeez not this shit again..

Slash opennly admits he isn't technically a great guitar player. And so what? It isn't how many notes you can play in a second or how "skillful" you appear to be. Steve Vai and Satriani can play at lightning speed but they are both soulless little nobodies that can't write good music even if they tried.

It's about soul, not speed or technical ability. Stay in 3rd grade where you belong asswipe!
