Agreed. Being technically good is only part of the equation. Those two guys make music that is just plain cheesy, so their technical skills don't really matter.

So, am I just out of the loop or something? Cause I've never really heard Kurt Cobain mentioned among the great guitarists. Influential, yes, but that doesn't exactly make him one of the greatest.

The only guitarists who aren't overrated are Hendrix, Page and Van Halen. And the only one I hardly saw on here (and rightfully so) was Page.

I agree. They are great but not my style. Same with Stevie Ray Vaughn, he's a great blues guitarist and I respect that but I don't like any of his songs.

I'm hoping to God y'all are a bunch of 15 yr old know - nothings.
Some of the players I've heard.......Hendrix, Townshend, Rhoads, Page, Clapton to name a few.
Put down the crack pipe kids

I agree that there are some players that are technically awesome and some who and not technically great but go for a sound or tone or emotion not speed. It's a matter of opinion and taste. Some of the awesome technically great players like Malmsteen, Vai, Satch etc. can play faster than a speeding bullet and move over the frets like lightning but often don’t make a real musical or emotional statement. Speed for speeds sake alone doesn’t work for me. In my opinion you can’t be thinking about the song as a song or playing with great emotion if you are playing a blistering fast run that crams 16 notes into a millisecond. You are just displaying your awesome technique not your musical interaction with the song or the other players. On the other hand someone like a David Gilmour can play two or three sustained notes that will just move me emotionally. So who is overrated? It’s different for each one of us. A lot will depend on which type of playing you consider “better” the technical side or emotional side. The ones who can be there with both (EVH is a great example of someone with his feet in both worlds) are my favorites and many of the “speed-for-speeds-sake” players are my most overrated. IMHO.
