So me and a friend of mine were having this discussion over dinner. The dilemma is fairly obvious.

I thought Brad Paisley was hands down a better electric guitarist than Keith Urban. My friend seemed to think that was borderline ridiculous, and that Urban clearly the better player.

So I thought I'd pose the question here and see what the general opinion was on the matter.

I haven't seen Urban "shred" as much as Paisley, but I always thought Paisley was much more technically proficient.
