not a ton of name recognition and arguably not on any "best of all time" short lists but this guy has one of the most odd and unique styles i've ever heard:



he's best known for having played on megadeth's "peace sells...but who's buying?" album. smooth vibrato and extremely fluid legato technique.

I'm as big of a jimi fan as you'll ever find and I think that Stevie ray Vaughn is better. So yeah it is close.

And it's Joe Satriani.

oh yeah joe satriani...he does nice riffs.


umm stevie is nice but he admits that he is not better than jimi lol jimi was his idol so of course he would never anything bad about him...

i feel like stevie copied jimi style.....i know he is great but its just feel like he is someone covering another guys style when i listen to him. almost like a good karaoke singer

some say jimi and stevie got their style from albert king. so its just all an opinion man.

The point was that the term "not even close" is being used wrong.

the difference between jimi and stevie is that jimi could play a wider range of "noises" on guitar. They both have amazing tones, tons of feel, and tons of soul. Jimi just has a wider landscape then stevie did. But i couldn't ever say who was better.

beat me to it...

yeah, he had some cool riffs he came up with, but lol at him being a good guitarist...

in fact, it probably ruined my guitar playing and stunted its growth because I learned all the Nirvana songs back in high school... It's a hard habit to break, wanting to bar E chord everything...

LOL at Cobain.

SRV
Eddie Van Halen
BB King
Clapton

I tend to migrate to the more soulful, bluesy types since that's the kind I play (badly).

Technical perfection: Eric Johnson.

Then again, I love the big hair stuff too. Lynch is great live, and Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme is pretty awesome too.

Check out Joe Bonamassa if you like the soulful, bluesy, skilled guys
