Sorry I know this has been hashed and refried a milllion times by now but since I've only been here a week I'm wondering what the opinion is this week. I tried to look in the contest/challenge forum in the riffs place but it seems it goes unused. So from what everyone has heard who is the best on UG?

I always liked Beat's guitar work. His collaborations were pretty damn good too.

I'm okay, i gues, but I think i'm the only one here that prefers to play rythm than lead.

There are so many people on this site that would crush him.

^Wrong, I too love playing rythym.

STFU n00b.

Garett is t3h pwns, bitch. Besides he's a great guitarist and musician. He hes my respect for using the wah pedal properly in that song "Sonic Elation". He can probably play a lot better too, but I don't think he would want to spend his time trying to impress pricks like you.

I second that motion.
Wait, do you even play?

That's like asking God, "dude do you watch women shower?"

Theres probably some 19 year old on here whos a complete virtuoso and can play faster than Steve Vai but just hasnt had the publicity.

As for Kristofer Dahl..that guy wears shades indoors. that takes his cool ladder down a notch

Edit: Garett.

Well. To be honest I haven't heard anyone's playing besides PickNGrin and Kristofer Dahl. He's not THAT amazing, but he understands a few things that a lot of players I see don't. That you're making music, and not a flurry of notes. So yeah.

I don't really know. There are plenty of people who're talented here. Garett is impressive, but he's slightly repetative. I'd just love the opportunity to actually post some of my stuff, but sadly I can't afford a decent rig. I'm not saying I'm good, 'cause I'm not, but I'd like to get some of my stuff on UG.

Anyone wanna give me charity?

Anyway, back on-topic: I've heard some brilliant guitarists in my time here, but Garett is the only one I can remember at the moment.

To be fair I find Garett boring and uninspirational. No offense to the guy he's a good guitarist, but I think he needs help with his writing.

I don't understand why people like him so much?
He's a good guitarist, but I find his stuff incredibly boring. It all feels far too improvised with no real direction for me.

well if you're saying I'm not impressed because he doesn't play 39482 million notes per second, that's what I meant. he just comes off as average...his style, articulation, rhythmic sense, melodic sense, lead sense, etc. there's not really anything that stands out.

i wonder if there's a guy in here who could play like george benson...now that would be envious.

I don't think i could crush garrett but I might be able to hang with him. Click my sig where it says listen to me and tell me if I'm full of ****. I recommend Overnighter, Devoid, Hyper Pent, Igor. I know it's unfair to compare usually but i want a little gauge to see where i am.

Lol the intro to overnighter was a bit... naff... but after that little bit of alternate picking wankery it was good... The end was a bit sudden though.

To be fair.... Album sales don't mean that much, plenty of bad bands can sell albums quickly, it just depends how much support you have...

I haven't made an effort as of yet because i want synth backings as opposed to guitar backed stuff. I need to find a great keyboard player and then it's on.

no...actually you can do all sync and keyboard stuff on your computer. you should take advantage of that.
