Steve Vai.
MAN he couldn't eat chicken wings without making a mess.

Chicken wings are messy...lol. But he's a whammy guitarist and therfore makes him sloppy

I don't think he's a guitar GOD, but jack whites pretty damn sloppy too

That's live when he was high as a god damn kite. He was a session musician and there's no room for sloppiness there.

My vote is for Kirk Hammett.

Ahaha Steve Vai is wicked =3

As much as I love Synyster Gates, he can either be really spot on or as sloppy as a truck full of syrup tipping over from black ice.

i always thought of omar rodriguez lopez as sloppy but after seeing them live i know that he is just a god.

them ?core guitarist are mostly all sloppy

I couldn't say, I haven't seen a great deal of live shows especially those with guitar "gods" playing. Even so, it would be stupid to make a generalization about a musician based on a couple of performances.

The guy is not saying Steve Vai is a sloppy player, he's saying Steve Vai is a guitarist who is sloppy, as shown by the mess made when he eats chicken wings. It's a joke people what the ****.

W00T Pit love

Other sloppy players are the guys from Slipknot. When I saw them live they were, anyways. And no, I didn't go for them. They were headlining a festival and my friend wanted to see them. I went for Mastodon and etc.
BUT BACK ON TOPIC, it was gross sounding at parts. I think it was Mick mostly. Jim Root seemed ok.

An improv in freetime? What would you expect?

I doubt it. I think it's just a really sloppy solo played by a sloppy guitarist.

(And yes, I do like Zeppelin, before anyone accuses me of bashing them.)

Quote by skaterskagg1

I don't buy that. Tons of jazz guitarists play much faster improv without delving into the freakish amount of missed notes and sloppiness that Page exhibits on that song.

i would expect him to play cleanly.

exhibit a:

freetime improv, played by one of the cleanest playing guitar players ever.

unfortunately i use Gilbert as the standard for most guitar related things, so my work is pretty much cut out for me guitar wise

A lot of guitar "gods" are sloppy. I think it adds certain uniqueness to the player.
