I was just wondering what your opinions are on this..


I like Greg Ginn, the way he switched between lead and rhythm was really cool. I wish I could do that - rip through some power chords at 190 bpm, then switch to a sweet, menacing punk riff... He was godly.

Opinions?

Jade Puget of AFI is my favorite. The intro to the Leaving Song Part II was really amazing.

Billy Zoom is good.

D. Boon was good. He had a lot of great solos, and he played some great rythm guitar.

His style was, and is, quite unique. He's my favorite guitarist in like, the history of ever.

these are what i consider the best guitarists in punk:

Greg Ginn (Black Flag)
Bob Mould (Husker Du)
Dr. Know (Bad Brains)
D. Boon (Minutemen)

and, i personally like Jason Shevchuk from None More Black for his song-writing ability. I find their mix of guitars to be amazing, creative and original (with the help of 2nd guitarist Colin McGuiness)

Dave Baksh, Johnny Ramone (He had some sick licks), thats all I know.

Yeah, selling out totally changes your sexual preference.

Ya Greg Ginn's actually a pretty good guitarist

I listen to Black Flag mostly because of his guitar riffs actually... Im not really a fan of the rest of the band members

To the thread starter: I can already play like Ginn. I just have to get over-caffeinated and start throwing in ad-libbed solos between punk riffs. Now I wish I could play bass like Chuck Dukowski could.

Dave Baksh? who the hell said that!? the brown guy who used to play guitar in SUM 41.... sure, i'll admit, he was pretty damn good, but SUM 41 were not punk, and they tried to be metal and failed at that.

East Bay Ray for originality and fucking with the punk 'formula'
Greg Ginn - awesome riffs and 'The Process of weeding Out' is brilliant.
Jake Burns - expressive rhythm playing, mixed with some cool solos and great melodies. The opening to 'Alternative Ulster' is genious.
Mick Jones - just love his style.
Super Leeds and Classy Cas!
