Jimmy -Solo fitted, but didn't do much for me. This is why i don't really like ZZ Top, it lends itself to basic RnR playing and doesn't really allow for much diversity & originality. Sounded like pentatonic noodling mostly, with some added harmonics here and there.

Zhilla - learn to bend to pitch man >.<, be it a microtonal or to pitch bend. Timing was a bit borked in parts, and a loot of noodling. Not much variation in dynamics etc either.

Gotta go with Jimmy

To be honest I found Zhilla's one really disorientating and overwhelming.

The vocals, guitar, production on Jimmy's one was really great. Really great solo as well.

Jimmy got my vote.

i went with jimmy because I liked it more, no real reason.. I wasn't a real big fan of the vocals, but this is a guitar website.
