1. Mikael Akerfeldt/Peter Lindgren
2. John Petrucci
3. Kirk Hammett/James Hetfield

Why does everyone hate Kirk Hammet?


Yeah, bloody oath. He deserves way more respect than he gets around here.

EDIT: Also, why would you put MAB in your top 3 influences? High nps/technical ability should be one of the LAST things you consider. MAB is fast, and that's it.

Noone hates Kirk Hammett... Just most of his fans.

And dude, shut up about MAB... He's more than fast, just because you can't see it doesn't mean he isn't.
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.

I highly disagree. I can see that Shawn Lane is more than just fast.

No, I actually have heard Shawn Lane play. I've also heard MAB play, and what I've heard (while not everything) is pure wankery.

Don't judge MAB after listening just No Boundaries.

I Do For You is an amazing song, just like Planet Gemini.

Hmm I'd be quite interested to see the Berzerker- I'm only 5'10 but I'm 16 stone 7 and I was an International rugby player...I think I'd be able to survive.
Freepower, sorry if this is a noobish question but does their actually solo at 330 bpm?


Im 6'2 and i weigh about 16 stone and i wouldnt go to one of those concerts...

My uni network wont let me use limewire or torrents which is a real bastard because the connection speed is unbelievable...

Id say my 3 influences are-
Gilbert
Vai
Hendrix

When im playing a rock solo, i cant help falling back into all the Gilbert stuff ive learned, when im doing amient stuff i ALWAYS end up doing some sort of Vai thing--think, I know Youre Here, Feathers, Boston Rain melody, tender surrender--and when im doin chords, i always end up doing Hendrix style slides, double stops etc--Castles Made of Sand, Little Wing, Angel, Wind Cries Mary etc...

Theres also quite a lot of SRV and Eric Johnson when i feel bluesy.

I'd go and I'm not that big. About 6'1 and 130 pounds. It can't be that bad. Just stay moving and maybe get on top of the crowd. As long as you stay moving and don't swing at someone, I think you'd be fine.

Why would someone flame you? Just because someone might not like them, they're still your influences.

Besides, Slash is brilliant.
#191
People get flamed for being ignorant asshats and saying that Slash is the best guitarist on the history of earth and if someone doesn't think so too, they're an ignorant moron. If you like him, that's fine.

i dont really think i look it--thats a pretty gay messaround photo but its the only recent one i have --but what i mean is, i know a lot of stuff about those type of concerts is hype, but i go to a concert to listen, not to be kicked/bled/puked upon--i dont have much of a temper so if some prick starts banging into me or bouncing off me id be liable to smack him one, then probably get killed by a bunch of psychos...THAT'S why i wouldnt go to one of those concerts.

I've been in a "zombiecore(www.sendmoreparamedics.com)" pit and I was like 165 cm at the time and 55-60 kilos and I didn't have any problems at all, but I doubt they are anywhere near as heavy as the berzerker and it was just an opening act so nobody was really that interested in their music.

ahh i see. i've been a lurker for along time and i got the impression everyone hated him on this forum.

i don't think hes a top guitarist but he is a brilliant riff writer and i love his soloing even if it is raw and untechnically polished sometimes.
#196
There are too many influences (big and small). But my top three at the moment would be Randy Rhoads, Dimebag Darrell, and Alexi Laiho.
"My strength is my determination" - Randy Rhoads (1956-1982)

John Frusciante, Flea and John Paul Jones.

but seriously i dk who my influences are yet....im big into rhoads and satch but ive not been playing too awful long


Well thats obvious, saying Kurt Cobain and Billy Joe are "good" guitarists is kind of lame; cobain is a great song writer, but i can learn mostly every Nirvana song in like 22 seconds. And, it's spelled Jimi Hendrix =)

For Me,
Jimmy Page, Randy Rhoads, and Stevie Ray Vaughan
