So me and my friend are arguing over who is a better guitarist. I personally think Iommi, he thinks Slash. I wanna know all your guys opinion. I don't care if they cant be compared or that other nonsense, I just wanna know peoples personal opinions on who they like better. Just want to make an observation.

They both lower the tuning of their guitar. I think Slash has more skill and more emotion, but Iommi was more inovative. I think they are impossible to compare because Iommi lost parts of his fingers so it is extremely hard to measure his skill.

Dude.. Iommi ... he is far superior.
Like thats not even an argument....In fact im deeply angered that anyone would even compare slash to the God that Iommi is.

... They're both awesome, I love Sabbath and I love GNR and VR, but I think Slash kicks more ass as a guitar player, his rythym and his solos are soulful, deep and rock the shit out of me.

You said it. Slash and GNR are lame. His solos are incredibly boring.

I'm pretty sure half the people voting don't even know who Tony Iommi is, which is a sad sad thing.

I bet you like metal don't you. Don't ask how I figured that one out...I want to hear your reasons why Iommi is better than Slash because it sounds to me like you see him as the better guitar player because he plays what you like. No body I've seen has really posted a real argument and the "this isn't an arguement, they shouldn't even be compared" etc. crap. It's not a question of which you like more, it's "which is better?"I really can't say beacuse I haven't listened to either of them enough to make a fair judgement. Sorry

OK, now that is very true. Oranges are too hard to peel for lazy people like me and they're sticky. However, I like orange juice more than apple juice. Hahaha. Just thought I might put that out there.

For starters, need I even state the revolution that Black Sabbath started, specifically
Iommi's guitar style? He wrote completely unique music for his time. Slash just kinda did a few G-chords and threw in some pentatonics. (yes i know this is exaggeration) His playing is really nothing special, people just liked GNR's sound and slash got some rep for it.

Yeah, the main reason I hate oranges is cause they SQUIRT ALL OF THE PLACE! I hate that.

As for market-read juice, in which no peeling/juicing is involved, I probably prefer orange juice as well.
