I like to pride myself with being very much into music, more so than sports and you should to my friends.
In sports how many times do you see one of those bench warmers or no names rise to a higher peak later in their career. Almost never!
Guitarist and other kinds of musicians have so many people improving it really warms my heart, just like you guys warm my heart.

Glenn Tipton
-Started playing hard rockish early metal in the early days of Judas Priest.
Later in the 80s decade putting in sweep picking and speed picking, techniques not even used on their first albums.

David Elfson
-Being in Megadeth, a band known for it's crazy riffing and chunky song writing every instrument is expected to be played with much precision and virtuosity.
David's bass grooves and lines have become more intricate. And not always providing the chord backings to riffs and instead a lower frequency style of harmonizing or a type of synchronization with the guitars.

SRV
-Although pretty much known as a virtuoso in the style of blues and Texas style guitar he's actually one of the few virtuosos to get even better.
Most of the time when we see someone who just seems very gifted at their craft, whether it be speed or technicality we rarely see those people break the skill ceiling.

So Pit, what are some musicians that you know that have improved over the years.
Where they already good before they improved?
Maybe even someone you know in person.

Tom Delonge.

He finally started tuning his guitars.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

Luke Hoskin and TIm Millar from Protest the Hero. I didn't think it was possible for them to actually get better at guitar. Zacky Vengeance from Avenged Sevenfold doesn't get alot of credit for his lead playing improving a shit ton between Waking the Fallen and City of Evil

Dave Grohl. His guitar playing went from sounding noisy as shit and just completely left field to being pretty good.


EDIT: Shit he was playing drums before, never mind

oh man

Jimmy Page became more interesting after the second Led Zeppelin album. Then he started becoming stale again with Presence.

Mikael Aakerfeldt used to play the easiest guitar parts during live shows but now days he seems to tackle the hardest parts while still singing fine.

I feel like most classic rock guitarists (not all, don't freak out on me) get worse with time. Maybe not necessarily with playings skills and technique, but they lose a lot of their edge and their playing becomes sterile.

Like, compare Clapton playing "Crossroads" here with Cream:
