Ok, pretty strait forward, who do you think is the best guitarist of this era. I think Omar Rodríguez-Lopez is the most talented and underated.

Steve Vai pwns

Archbishop of Zeppelinism...

Quote by Beakwithteeth
Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

i don't think 'this era' was clearly enough defined, I mean the RHCP have been around for 20 years, with that being the time limit i'll go with either John Ferchante or Mike McCreedy of Pearl Jam.

depending on what qualifies as this era,
Johnny Marr of The Smiths,
Graham Coxon of Blur.

i dont think you can really say best, its all about opinion.

My personal favourite guitarist from the last 15-20 years would have to be Nowell from Sublime
#16
John Frusciante
he might not have the most technichal skill, but he is very unique, versatile, and overalll freakin awesome.

Mike Einziger from Incubus... every riff he writes is just incredible technically and sonically.

^That sounds good.

I don't pay attention to many new guitarists.

Whoever plays in Between the Buried and Me is pretty good.

And I define "this era" is producing thier best music within the past 5-7 years.
No fucking images.

Ghey.

I love the chili peppers, definantly one of my favourite bands.. but i do agree with you to an extent. I think frusciante is a good guitarist, but he's just retardedly overrated on these forums.

John Mayer
Henry Garza (is that his name?) from Los Lonley Boys
are a more that havent been named, definantly deserve it.

and if Steve Vai is considered "this era", well he's ****ing crazy

Eric Johnson as well

yea that henry garza has got it goin on
Quote by jazkel24

Any bands you're trying to copy/sound like?
#29
Mike Einzinger for sure, especially since he uses his skill CREATIVELY instead of just shredding in that bull**** neo-classical style that so many guitarists do now. It's almost impossible to find someone out there with skill, that doesn't waste it by showing off with string-skipping arpeggios and two-handed tapping.

And Henry Garza. Los Lonely Boys are amazing live.
you tell me who's better. i think good charlote are better than the bealtes but that's only because their lyrics mean more and they are better musicians.

hell yeah, hes really good. my buddy had a spare ticket to their show when they came to austin a few weeks back, i really wasent aware of just how badass he was til i went to that show.. ****in jaw was dropped
#31
John Frusciante definately, great stuff, his **** is more complicated than just him strumming chords and simple riffs, its very hard to get it to sound just the way he does.
anybody wanna put anything here just let me know
#32
Johnny Greenwood HANDS DOWN.

Oh, and any guitarist who plays post-rock.

hell....I second fing MARK TREMONTI OF ALTER BRIDGE AND......MAYBE.....JASIN TODD OF SHINEDOWN

John Frusciante - More technical, more beautiful, best funky guitarist
Tom Morello - Most inventive, most unique, most bad-ass riffs

I'd say as far as originality goes, draw.
