Why, because top end guiatrists should only consist of making songs only with pentatonics and pinch harmonics?

Not sure who this was credited too, because of how impossible that is too read.

EDIT: Sorry misread it. But I don't think he's that good of a guitar player at all. He's a good musician(Including everything not just guitar playing), but not that good of a guitar player.

Good thing you know anything about this forum, dumbass.
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 like Prince. His music sucks.. but he does play a mean guitar. He f*ckin smoked during the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame show, when he played for George Harrison's introduction.

On the contrary, he is DEFINITLEY NOT the most underrated ever. And this thread does indeed suck..

Shut the hell up. This forum is probably the least elitist forum on the board.

And yes Prince is awesome.

Because you have any idea what you're talking about


No, Prince is not the most underrated guitarist ever. What to know why? Because you just made the implemation that he was the most underrated guitarist ever.

Actually...those big words may have confused myself too

I had no idea what the proper form of "implied" would be to have used in my sentence, so I kinda made it up as I went

its not that hes under rated its just that hes not known for playing the guitar
#21


Sorry, zakk_wylde4, excuse me while i play fast pentatonics for 10 minutes straight and pretend i'm good.

Those stupid shredders and their lack of emotion.


I admit zakk-wylde4's statement was dumb but if you really meant what you said on a general level and not just about that clip you clearly know nothing about Zakk Wylde.
#22
I'm just saying that there's plenty of equal bull**** from his favourite player that he's willing to overlook in favour of the real material (if wank bothers you, i'd reccomend doing that for everyone). Zakk is full of shred wank, and sure enough a lot of shredders are too - but for him to say something stupid like that is just annoying. Unprompted, unfounded criticism of the forum's genre and also the forum MEMBERS - who i'm sure Zakk knows a lot about - is not on.
#23
I've never found Zakk particularly interesting.

Prince is cool though, the solo at the end of Lets Go Crazy is brilliant, but 1999 is my fav song by him.

Prince is actually a very good guitar player. I would say hes underrated, but def not the #1 most underrated. "Purple Rain" is a very good album, but all of his other music sucks. Its a shame really because he is very talanted.

Well considering various threads I've read through for the past two days, it seems so.

Here are some examples: Shawn Lane, Marty Friedman, and here Zakk Wylde and Prince.

He just seems a little down on alot of people, but hey it's his business, and I'm not condemning his choices. It's just something I noticed.

I'm pretty sure he was joking when he said the stuff about Marty. Read the previous post. And I'm pretty sure he's said lots of positive stuff about him in the past.
