So, pit, who do you think are the guitarists with the most unorthodox playing/soloing styles?

I would say Tom Morello or Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman.

(If this is the wrong forum for this, go ahead and lock it)

I don't think they're terrible, btw. That's just the only video I could find of them playing that.



oh I've seen them before. they're nothing special, IMO. it's unorthodox, but I don't find it interesting, it's just a bunch of pointless wanking on the whole-step scale.

Marty Friedman mainly because he was the weirdest picking technique ever.

I would say buckethead.....well, alot of the guitarists break the norm.

Like back in the day Jimmy Page made a big break in his unorthodoxed style of guitar playing.

Doyle Bramhall II

Get a right handed guitar, flip it over and that's what he plays.

maybe its just his earlier stuff (like Reign in Blood), or maybe its just Jeff Hanneman that I'm hearing.

I mean, Angel of Death had some weird solos...

I don't think any of that stuff was particularly unorthodox, definitely atonal, but that's par for the course when you get into certain types of extreme metal.

Who ever was the guitar player for Primus back in the mid 90's. Sorry, I'm too lazy to look up the name.

Larry LaLonde, he's still the guitarist for Primus AFAIK.

Tommy Emmanuel. He may play his guitar weirdly in a technical sense, but he could make all of us here cry like babies and run home to our mommies because of how epicly awesome he is

Thanks, that was his name. I was just on Wikipedia looking it up.

He plays for Clapton, right? Doesn't he play left handed guitars but has them strung upside down? High e on the top ---> low E on the bottom?

Jeff Beck for sure.

Thumb and index for strings, middle and ring fingers operate whammy, pinky swivels the volume switch.

Pretty unique.
