Hello,
I'm new to this nice forum - it's very nice place.
Friend of mind asked what is the greatest guitar player that used Les Paul. Of course there isn't one, but maybe you could give me like 5. Thank you very much!

WOw quick! Thank you!
Ok I get the picture , I'm kind a new to rock style, Les Paul is one of the rock icons. Maybe there are some objects or icons as important as Les Paul. Maybe some rock symbols... I just want to know it all correctly, so I can be smarter then my friends

I've seen Rivers Cuomo use one.


yeah, because when you're talking about Jimmy Page, Slash and Eric clapton, why shouldnt rivers cuomo be mentioned?

I know everyone says Page but Page. Plain and simple, he can do every rock style, then some countryish tunes to blues to metal to anything. Not to mention he can write real good music and he had the ability to improvise real well. Duane Allman and Billy Gibbons are real well too. I also love Slash and Joe Perry but Page is the best.

The guy whose name is on it, Les Paul.

Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

"Who's that movin' across the stage, he looks a lot like Jimmy Page."

Of course so many players are not pure Les Paul players. Beck used one on Blow by Blow and he is the Strat God. I think some forgot Randy Rhodes who started on the LP on his first work with Ozzy. Zak is an amazing player. As much as I never cared much for G&R Slash spins a good riff at times, I can't stand Axel so I never really listened to the band, Jungle is a classic but the rest of it..... Adam plays a lot of different guitars like Billy Gibbons as well but their LP work is paradigm. Ace, well, I enjoyed the Kiss thing in the late 70's and such but at least Ace knew when to retire from the Kabuki dance. Gene and Paul need a therapist and for God sake, it's time to count your money.

When one thinks of shear ICON and IMAGE, I think one has to give credit where credit is due and give Pagey his statue.

Rivers is actually a very good guitarist I guess. He took lessons from a pretty good prog guitarist from what I read in a UG interview.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Well, Les Paul himself, since he's the one who nearly perfected the art of classic guitar playing. Most noticeably is Jimmy Page, who can be recognized completely with it.
#34
slash, jimmy page, joe perry, billy gibbons. in that order as well
