Mick Jones, Tom Verlaine, Pete Doherty, Jonny Greenwood and Neil Young. One of those.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Eddie Van Halen because he doesn't just play guitar, he lives guitar. Like how he built his own guitar and patented a tuning device.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

allan holdsworth, his playing stays fresh because he has such a unique style and tone that no one can come close to. that being said, i'd never want him to join my favorite bands because he'd probably ruin them...he's gotta do his own thing
I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes HEY!
#12
Jimi Hendrix is my favourite because he invented playing left handed and thats what Kurt Cobain, my favourite guitarist, did

Frank Zappa. He didn't just play a mean guitar; he composed some incredibly diverse music in his time, and did it very well (ie I'm The Slime, Son of Mr. Green Genes, anything on "Freak Out"/"We're Only In It For The Money")
Bands I've seen live:

Def Leppard
Journey
Tool
Testament
Megadeth
Slayer
Mastodon
Deftones
Alice in Chains
Foo Fighters
Rodrigo y Gabriela

My favorite guitarist is David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, because I think his phrasing in many of his solos is really perfect. He actually makes a guitar solo add something to the song, rather than just being thrown in there just for the sake of a guitar solo.

Jim.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.


Listening to: The Police


Please excuse my proper spelling and grammar, English is one of my first languages.
#27
Steve Vai, because he is technical and emotional all at the same time. He also went to Ibanez with the idea of a 7string guitar long before Korn started using them.
#29
either Jeff Loomis or Muhammad Suicmez

because of incredible technique (Loomis is ahead on this one, but Suicmez said that he so for god only around 60% of his goods shown, i have no reason to doubt) and creativity

I couldn't even begin to choose.

Edit: Although I will add that I think most people in here have shit taste.

The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

I'm a Petrucci fan boy.

So yeah, Petrucci, because he's just plain ****ing awesome.
#33
Paul Waggoner of Between the Buried and Me
Luke Hoskin of Protest the Hero
Misha Mansoor of Periphery
Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth

All four have their own unique technique and all write completely different styles of music. I love them all.
