Which metal guitarist do you think has had the most impact on how metal sounds today?


note: I know it's very subjective, that's why I ask 'what do YOU think'

Shoot!

Your mother.

Also,

RIP Dime

None of these. Clearly it was Tommy Lommi, who I personally don't like, but if it weren't for him, Metal wouldn't exist at all.
What is this that stands before me?

Tony Lommi!? He was almost as good as Limebag and Dirk Hammett!

maybe, but i was talking metal as in -METAL-.
i know he's the founding father of everything from socks to the United Nations, but I'm talking contemporary metal here.
#19
Dave Murray of course.

In Flames were inspired by the iron maiden sound.

and i just cant believe at the amount of people that voted for Kirk and Dime, they are awesome, but they did not influence much
I see you're not using the UG black theme

Rhoads, IMO. His classical legato's and his style were the main influence of todays shredders.

Yeah, I've read the stories on toilet walls.
No worries, I'm stretching him first with a few fingers.
#29
why are so many people voting for dimebag...

he was great, sure, but in my opinion the only influence he had is that many other guitar players tried to copy his "sound" more then his playing style.

he is the most exploited guitar player tho :p



Stop highlighting my signature!!

alot of the older, maiden and sabbath and metallica inspired the 90's, but alot of the 00's would say dime, including the older bands.

wait....are you REALLY trying to categorise me as a 'newbie' and claiming I should show respect based on the fact that i signed up later than you?
let me guess, you had people calling you 'stupid '08er' all year last year, and now you are living out your frustration on me?

And I can hardly call it an insult, looking at the usual tone of voice here on UG.
#39
I'll have to say Kirk, but mostly because I don't know Dime and the other all that well.
