I see thread upon thread labled "most underrated guitarist" and i guess to start a few fights, i decided to do a thread for the most overrated guitarist. My vote:

Yngwie Malmsteen

Synister, Slash, Herman Li, Jack White (He was like number 17 on the Rolling Stones greatest guitarist list WTF!!), Zakk Wylde. I'm not saying that these are bad guitarists (except for Synistera, Herman Li, and Jack white) but they are jsut so overrated it makes me angry!


Yeah, Herman Li can't play worth a **** live.

Jimi Hendrix. He is one of most influential guitarists, but he isn't the best.

Jack White isn't overrated. He's a modern rock god. He's got his own sound, and he's different from a lot of other guitarists.

I am a fanboy though.

Slash + Zakk Wylde are just pentatonic wankers though imo.

everyone is always arguing about "WHO IS THE BEST GUITAR PLAYER OF ALL TIME?"

all guitarists from all genres play different, everyone has their own style, and one of the most important thing in being a guitarist is creating your own style and style of improvising.

Hendrix isnt overrated, he just gets alot of talk because of his style...and that style is well liked by alot of people

im not trying to prove you wrong im just clarifying and protesting this thread.

basically the thread title should be "WHO IS THE GUITARIST YOU ARE SICK OF HEARING ABOUT!"
'Music is the best"

As far as raw overratedness goes, from personal opinion, I'd say Zacky and Synester.
LOL
#21
A7X dude, Herman Li. I wouldn't say Mick Thompson, because he's not nearly as exaulted as other guitarist, but he has his own sound, and some head crushing riffs.

i believe every guitarist has the proper respect of musicians/fans based on the skill they contain...betcha weren't expecting that response, were you ts? take that!

honestly, how can you say people like Synester Gates and Herman Li are overrated when clearly, everywhere you look in the pit, people are bashing them? It sounds like those guitarists aren't praised at all, therefore they can't really be considered overrated but instead right were they belong.

Beck is like everybody's favorite guitarist, he's one of those 'legends', god what do they think he did, played with some of the best musicians ever and wrote amazing music or something?
Trucks? WTF? what kind of name is that? this kid is way overrated
Blackmore, god, that guy is way overrated. If I hear smoke on the water one more time i'm going to puke. which means in about an hour when i use it to warm up for practice
Clapton, that guy just plain sucks. I mean all he did is create some of the best and most popular music ever from slow blues to rock with some of the best musicians in rock and blues, thanks to that guy the wahwah pedal is so popular, god without him we wouldn't have slash who is sooooooooooo overrated because he doesn't play superfast enough and isn't precise enough either
and OMFG those guys from Dragonforce who play sooooooo fast, and I hated them for that because they can actually do it live too, because they obviously play with no feel. and then when they did some cool sounding slow solos on the new album i think they're total sellouts for betraying their signature fast sound.

Lol, I'm convinced you have no idea what you're talking about. Beck is probably the most underrated guitarist there is. His technique and his style are unparalleled. Also, if you think the only thing Blackmore has done is Smoke on the Water, you're a ****ing idiot. Clapton has an amazing voice, and great blues rock chops. Listen to Disraeli Gears, Bluesbreakers with Clapton, and you don't like Trucks because of his name? You're a ****ing idiot. Also, you never explain why you don't like di Meola...

Who are some of your favorites by the way?
