Honestly he could not play a fast sweep to save his life, truly the most overrated guitarist from a technical perspective of ALL TIME!

Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

He's not so much known for technical guitar playing. You should look at his creativity and unique guitar riffs. Surely he is somewhat overrated. But then again there far worse. Such as Slash.

OH DAMN!!! THIS IS GONNA GET INSAAANE FO' REALS THO!!! Say WHAT 'bout Jimmy Page? BETTA GET YO CANNON OUT, SON!

On a legitimate note, what's 'good' in music is 100% subjective. You can measure technical skill, sure, but that's not all there is to music. At all.

Try shooting heroin in your arm everyday and then go play some fast sweep picking live, chances are you will be pretty sloppy too.

Hey Dave Mustaine used to shoot heroin into his arms and he can play pretty good!

I know you're just trolling. If you are I guess you never heard Heartbreaker before.

That's seriously not that technically fast or proficient. Go listen to some of John Petrucci's sweeps, or even Yngwie's, so much faster and cleaner.

if thats all you can account talent for, then you have missed the point of music regardless of instrumentation. Besides who are you to comment of technique? Im betting the masters of classical and flamenco styles blow the artists you admire out of the water.

Its quite apperent that you have not listened to enough zeppelin to make a coherent judgment, for the guy is very inventive. I especially admire their accoustic works he sure had a special touch in the studio wether it was the guitar or mandolin. For the time he sure did a whole deal in advancing riff driven style that metal is know for, so know your roots.

Out of the goodness of my heart, I did some shopping for you.

A talk box would enable you to play your guitar, run your mouth, and troll all at once.

Who knows, if you get good enough with it, maybe you could use it to show Jimmy Page up, when he invites you to his castle to play for him......

you do realize you are comparing a band from the 60's to stuff from the 80's right?

a song from zeppelins second album in 1969 and dream theater whos first album was in 1989... yngwie with alcatraz in 83...

listen to black sabbaths first in 1970, what is the fastest song? compare that to the works from 1975 from sabotage, like symptom of the universe or you wont change me... see how much a guitarists speed and technique caan develop in 5 years?

now take that all into account and imagine the colective progress of a multitude of guitarists over the world currently pushing the boundaries and evolving the instrument as a whole.

in 1965 when clapton left the yardbirds, he suggested page but he was making so much money as a session player he refused. refused a band who were at the top of their career and a well known name.
jimmy page was making a name for him self 20-30 years before the guys you mentioned, do you realize how much things change? you havent even been alive for that long how much has the world changed since you were little? how can you even compare such technique with such a huge time gap?


its obvious this guys a troll as you can see he joined today, but is that an excuse for not trying to have a constructive argument guys? Not all things have to be good to provide progress, just insinuation alone can trigger you to dig in deep and collect your thoughs. so why give this guy the pleasure of screaming at him while we can educate one another?

Im sure 20 years of different "births" makes no difference in how well people play guitar lol. And Tony Iommi is quite poor as well, he's way too slow.
#26
I'd listen to Tony Iommi over Yngwie, Cooley, Petrucci etc any day.

Music is subjective. Stop being jealous and do something productive.

Simple playing styles are for people who are just beginning. If you can't sweep after a few years of playing then you shouldn't be famous.

By your logic, Michael Angelo is the only good guitarist out there.

Petrucci can sweep, but he can't sweep with his hand over the neck, so that rules him out for you, he's shit.

Gilbert can sweep, but he can't sweep on two necks simultaneously, so that rules him out for you, he's shit.

Basically that's nearly everyone that's shit isn't it. So enjoy listening to Michael Angelo cd's, don't complain if you're bored after the second song because he can't write for shit.
