Bucket head is in an entirely different level then most of these guys, but alot of them have one thing in common. They taught themselves how to better play the guitar.I'm sure there are better guitarists then bucket head, but there is no one who can do better what he does

>>832395201Morello is a good guitarist. His RATM stuff doesn't reflect all of his technical ability. But he'd be the first to say he's not an all-time great. That being said, his use of effects and guitar playing was pretty inventive. No need to knock it, for what it is.


>>832394988Seriously everyone listed is a great guitarist. There is no such thing as the best, they each got their individual quirks that make them unique. That’s the beauty of guitar, there is no true standard of greatness.

>>832398433Ummm yes. I’m a guitarist. Shedding is more practice than feeling.

>>832397929this is some truth. although i'd replace guitarist with musician. art is lovely because there is no objective way to rate how "good" it is. If you like it, it is good. If it makes you, feel something it is good. If it makes you think, it is good. If it makes you recall memories, it is good.Fuck I love music. Some songs will make me feel things nothing else ever has. Sometimes I'll sit fucking around playing some stupid ass riff with 13+ effects pedals doing stupid and I'll just feel free........ Life is a pain, and I'd do anything to just not feel the burden of responsibility for a second, and music will do that. Lose yourself in whatever you like, even if just for a moment, and feel free. No reason to hate on others for their ability or preference

>>832408309Thanks for the rec user. Man what an incredible sounding 12 string

>>832404707This is my feeling and it crosses genres. The ability to make a song that can affect me emotionally, whether it be a head nod or a tear or a smile, is much more valuable to me than someone who can soullessly noodle their way through complex scales. Any person who devotes enough time can learn the technical shit. Music is visceral and conveying something special within that construct is much more rare.

I was actually at the concert in Anchorage where Iggy melstorm got hit in the hand by the beer bottle. He can out and said "fuck you, assholes" with a swedish. I laughed and laughed. I hated him. Anyway Quiet Riot came out nexy and blew the doors off the Sully. I was soooo stoned.

Donald Roeser of Blue Oyster Cult. Listen to the bridge in don't fear the reaper. Not my favorite BöC song but it'll give you and idea of his talent

>>832396058Finally, a true music lover.

>>832396115And Joe Satriani

>>832396125Overrated. He became famous for being the only negro in Woodstock and that’s about it. Negros have so few heroes to choose from that everyone of them is overrated.

>>832397789Her playing is overdubbed. It's hilarious, but she's extremely competent, and didn't play 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star' for Don Segovia.

>>832405593Stranglehold is gonna be one of my favs til I die, but Buckethead thrashes him.

>>832414469I was there.How's Mo?

Mick Ronson

Mark Knopfler and Chet Atkins. Both amazing guitarists, and made an album together too.
