what NEW NEW NEW NEW guitarists that came out in this decade seem to show quite a lot of talent. I know that in the nineties it wasnt so good but was this decade just as bad or better or worse. I wanna know peoples comments

does jim root and mick thompson count since they only started getting good in this decade and not in the the first self titled slipknot albulm?

21st century still has 91 years to go, I wouldn't start discussing the bet yet.

But of this decade?

I don't think we can discuss it yet. The upcoming revival of good guitar (at least in my opinion) is happening in the local clubs at this point, none of them are big yet.

I can say there are some locals I know in seattle that are pretty amazing, Like Andrew Napier of Ascendence and Stefan Skalbania from Flora Fauna.

Is it just me, or did Nirvana kill guitar as a popular thing? Before then, every damn song had a solo, even random pop stuff. In between them, and recent, guitar music was an underground thing. Nowadays its coming back, thank god.


Of course, it could just be that all the 80s hair metal before Nirvana killed guitar, and they were just the reaction to the already dead trend??

Nirvana didn't kill guitar, they just made a different style of playing popular. Something was bound to kill hair metal anyway because it was getting old and it really starting sucking near the end.

It is just you. If anything, Nirvana made and still makes guitar a popular thing... Unfortunately. Everyone and their grandma seems to play and take their silly guitar to school.

What you mean is that Nirvana killed guitar as a central element of rock and pop music. Honestly, lead guitar went overkill during the 80's, and Nirvana were, at the time, a reaction to all the overkill of the 80's. Guitar became a complementary thing, and people who start playing inspired by Nirvana usually just learn to play chords and other basic stuff on it, only later moving on to more complex aspects of guitar, if they do.


And I'd say Jack White and Matt Bellamy are 2000's
#20
you guys are forgetting the jonas brothers...

but seriously the hawkins brothers from the darkness are probably some of the best so far
#21
Matt Bellamy, Jack White, Buckethead's really taken off now (I know he was popular before but he's really only got his career going full speed now)

It may not be the most obvious choice for most people, but I think Russell Lissack is one of the better guitarist that has popped up in recent years. Most people don't know about him, but I think he's a brilliant guitarist.

Despite the band forming in the early 90s, I'm gonna add Joey Eppard of 3 to the list since they didn't get an album out until 99 or 00. Billy Riker is pretty good too.
The guy from Russian Circles also. Very tasteful playing style.
#32
90s not so good?

jerry cantrell, mike mccready, scott johnson/jesse valenzuela, chris cornell/kim thayil, dimebag (got popular), kevin cadogan, noel gallagher, the list goes on.
