Have you ever thought about this? Like let's say your favorite guitarist is John Petrucci. Do you think he's always playing Dream Theater songs and some original stuff? Or do you think he learns songs from other bands and plays them?

In my situation, Mark Morton (from Lamb of God) is my favorite and most influential guitarist. What is he playing? Lamb of God riffs and other random riffs he made up? Do you think he takes to time to learn some Dream Theater or some Children of Bodom or whatever?

I just think that, if you're a famous guitarist and you find out other guitarists that you respect are playing YOUR songs, it'd be the most flattering thing in the world.

So what are your thoughts on this? Who's your favorite guitarist, and what do you think he plays (excluding classics like Stairway or Master of Puppets...)?
R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio. Supplied amazing music to both me and my mother.

He will be missed.

No, Joe Perry does not listen to any other music but his own.

He knows that all music he is not involved in, is gay.

Mark Morton plays my songs and I completely ignore him. I had to reject him from MySpace 5 times today.

For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

i think they learn other stuff because on one of the dream theater dvds you hear john pretucci play beatles.

i think most big guitarists will do what normal guitarists do at hyim and learn random stuff and just mess around but when it comes to recording they will make stuff

A very good blues guitarist at that. I think he also plays country.

I find it hard to believe Tony Iommi would play anything else other than his own material. Maybe some old blues but thats about it.

well I think it is quite obvious that John Mayer plays alot of Stevie Ray Vaughen....

(stopping there before I begin a rant)


But I'm sure they do.
Just playing your own material is... well, for one very egotistical.
and also quite boring, I would imagine.

No matter how good you are, you can always get better.
One way to get better is to learn from others.
One way to learn from others is to play their music.

Apparently both John Petrucci and Dave Mustaine like Pantera.


Dave only started liking them when Dime was killed.

So help me god, i'll report the next person to read my mind.

People like to diversify, guitarists do anyways...well, they should I say. Anyways, i'd hope they want to play something different every once in a while.

I bet Chris Broderick's playing some Chris Poland/Jeff Young/Marty Friedman/Al Pitrelli/Glen Drover stuff right now.

this is why bands make cover albums, becase they like other people music and want to do something with it

I think it's a pretty conceivable fact that famous guitarists play other famous guitarists' works.

RIP Hendrix

Anyways, I figure they play some covers as well as improvise, scales, their own stuff, etc.

The only difference between us and them is signature gear, a tour bus, millions of dollars, sold out stadiums, and they get chicks. But other than that...
