Because the guitarists you listed in the poll are all the guitarists on earth.


Actually for a question like this, it's more sensible to have a limited poll, because while there are infinite underrated, there are finite overrated guitarists.

It should be multiple option, though.

They all have good points and bad points. None of them are over-rated.

Freddie Mercury.
Quote by tattyreagh
He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

Way to pick all the influential guitarists out there. I mean, really...those are all the guitarists who added something to the instrument called the electric guitar. I'm not even joking. Your threads, they're terrible. Please stop.

I'm reporting this one as spam.

Freddie Mercury.

I don't know, he played a mean tele on "Crazy Little Thing Called Love." Might just be better than Jeff Beck.

Jimmy Page

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Dimebag

This.
Also Hendrix was amazing I don't know why people say he was overrated. I mean he was in his early 20's when he died, and was considered one of the best guitarists of all time.
inb4 shitstorm, I said ONE of the best.

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album

What happened to the little Slash tophat next to the "my profile" button? I'm guessing he terminated whatever agreement he had with UG after promoting his shit solo album?

You know life isn't fair when people like HB are stuck posting on a guitar forum instead of rolling in bitches and cash.

Meh, I have no problem with Synyster. I like his style and I personally learned a lot on guitar from learning his stuff. So I wouldn't say he's overrated.

All of them. Guitar is an overrated instrument.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Putting a poll in a question with this many options is a joke.

Moving on... Kirk Hammett is overrated. I love him and Metallica, but definitely gets too much credit as a guitarist.
#37
You didn't put Dimbag Drummel in the pole. Even though I love Dimebags playing to death I was still going to vote Dimebag.
