Jimi Hendrix. I hear all sorts of crap about how "awesome" he is. Or how "amazing" it is that he taught himself guitar.

Whatever. To me, he sucked as a guitarist. Half his techniques, like playing with teeth, he stole from other artists as he made his way through the music industry.

So yea. Jimi Hendrix is definately overated.

It wasnt nessesarly his techniques that was good, its his style of playing. Infact, when his first album came to the US, warner bros put "Warning: deliberate distortion, do not correct" on the original release.

Really, i cant find any guitar playing that sounds like his before his record came out.

Hendrix was unique

I would have to say EVH for me, I think he's a great guitarist, but one of the things I don't like about him is he sticks with that sound, I don't think he's branched out enough....that is why he is overrated to me.

Remember. I didn't say he was crap or anything like that....just overrated.

You have to realize, pretty much anyone who was original and had a large impact on music or a genre of music is going to be overrated. It's just because they are that well known and did unique things at the time.

Kurt Cobain


Yeah, but was Kurt Cobain really known for his guitar playing? His guitar playing was acknowledged slightly but I think he was really known for his vocals and song writing.

Oh My God! Its been over a page and no one has put Billy Joe Armstrong. Seeing as he isn't overrated thats good but I was expecting him to cop alot. Kurt Cobain is an overrated axe player, but an awesome musician none the less. The most over rated would have to be EVH. Hendrix is overrated, but not a great deal

Petrucci, some of you find him great which is cool. To me it seems like he's just jacking off really fast, it's not that entertaining.

^Okay, Antonio Forcione.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Hah....that kind of made me laugh....yeaaaaaa

But I don't think steve vai is over rated, infact I actually don't see people talk about him that much....He is popular but I believe he deserves his seat on the throne of gutiar gods.


Oh and Kerry King is overrated....hes not very good at all.

Lets talk about Mattias "IA" Eklundh from Freak Kitchen!! Very creative guy...but this is not the place to do it...sooo.....

Actully i liked Kurt Cobians way to play guitar. But its really simple, so when people says he is overrated i disagree. As some said: who ever said he was that good in he first place? And i think the overrated is:
Avril Lavigne(dont mind if i spelled wrong i hate her so). She can play like one chord! Okay nobody said shes good, exept for little girls who think she is hard rock(im not liyng they do). And sorry cant figure out anyone else.

i havent really heard anyone say kurt cobain was good at guitar, so i doubt he's overrated as a guitar player.
i need to get a better signature.
