Just wondering the pits veiws on zakk wylde? IMO he is one of the best guitarist around today. His acoustic and electric stuff both kick ass!

I think Zakk is a little bit overated, sure he is really really good, but when you talk about all-time greats, I don't think he should be involved in the convo

Definately NOT the best around today, but he's not bad. Heard a few of his covers, and they're not that bad.

I think Zaak is a good guitarist, but I can't help but look at his style as "Dimebag wanna-be". So yes, he plays well, but he tries too hard to play like Dime.

haha what a load of bull****. Zakk sounds nothin like Dime and was playing with Ozzy before Pantera were even that big. They were very good friends yes but they sound jack **** like each other.

I think he's good, and if you listen to his solos, like on the Budokan DVD with Ozzy, he has a really unique style (how good his style is = opinion), BUT I think his songs and riffs are not half as good as Dime's are.

Are you kidding me?

Hardly any Black Label Society sounds like Pantera.

Zakk is an amazing guitarist... Too bad he is caught up in pinchpinchpinch! His Ozzy stuff from the early 90's was great. He had tons of style and killer tone. His newer stuff, most of it is just meh. But he is an amazingly talented musician. His acoustic playing is, bar none, top of the line though.

He get's a huge YAY from me, he is great in BLS and pwns on the new Ozzy album!
#25
i say a total nay on this side of the table!

to me, it just sounds like he scoops his mids too much.
#26
I enjoy Zakk's playing from 90's Ozzy to early BLS, but he's such a prick. :\

I hate his style of playing and I can't stand listening to his riffs and solos - they're so cliched pentatonic leads with way too much wah than is necessary. He's alright on acoustic though.

That isn't a reason to get at the guy and slate his playing... (imho )

I don't think he has a bad tone on the new ozzy album at all.

No offence or anything but Mike McCready does the same thing but better. Anyone who knows me will know I used to be a huge Pearl Jam fan. I still am but I don't listen to them any more because I found Rock Music to be very boring as of late. They are, however, my favourite Modern Rock band by far.

From someone with a Pearl Jam avatar I find that not only dissapointing but also highly ironic as Mcready makes brilliant use of what you called the "pe\ndatonik scale"... Infact his best material is made up 90% from it, at least.

Saying he "sucks" at playing is just plain stupid, check out some of his more laid back stuff before slating him.

There's no need to hate on guitarists, especially great guys like him.

Oh yeah and EDIT - RHCP guitarist/s does the same thing.

Ah well.. good minds think alike; we both had good things to say in different ways as well. At least now its "doubley clear" !

He's a good player, but generally, if a guitarist is a prick, i can't admire him no matter how good he is as a player.

I couldn't believe how he had huge digs at Metallica for selling out, and then started suddenly going on about how great Marshall MG's are

Hypocrite much?
God knows I don't want to be an angel

Anyone who does not do drugs (especially in his position) is great in my book.

Extreme kudos to him.
