Which hardcore guitarist do you think shreds the hardest? I'd really prefer it if you didn't say synister gates or dan jacobs. Id say the lead guitarist in my band because I genuinly think he's up there.

Herman Li or Yngwie

Well, I don't really consider BTBAM to be "core" but alot of people on here do sooo. But yeah he's gotta be up there. And Thomas Erak(fan boy here lol) from The Fall of Troy.

Alexi Laiho, herman li, synyster gates,

(A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music)

First of all, Herman Li? Not exactly core. Or even remotely close. Anyway, my tops would probably be Corey Beaulieu and Synyster Gates.

Dragonforce is power metal, Children of Bodom are melodeath, Synyster Gates (what a joke of a name) sucks, Beaulieu I agree with.

Unearth's guitarists are very good, as are LoG's (note core in my book though).

According to the KsE DVD interviews, Joel can shred like crazy, but I haven't seen any of that in KsE's music.

i don't care who you prefer we dontt mention, synester gates is up there, even if he does have a stupid name... along with trivium and all that remains, and the dudes from unearth do some sweet sweep picking.

I can't believe that one jerkoff (no offense but I take things seriously, I'm sure you rock as a person ragebass) but HOW CAN YOU SAY SOMEONE FROM TRIVIUM IS BETTER THAN HERMAN LI. Thats like saying dirt tastes better than ice cream. And yes, Herman Li, Laiho, and Malmsteen don't belong in a hard/metal core thread

ibanez, he just said dragonforce isn't metal/hardcore. which they're not. they're power metal. he didn't say anyone was better than anyone.

Most of these bands aren't hardcore.

Greg Ginn, just listen to the solo on Rise Above.

Some HARDCORE bands with good guitarists include Outbreak, Bad Brains, and Shipwreck.

There are a lot of great metalcore guitarists, but a lot of people overlook Converge (I'm not going to name one guitarist, they've had several). There isnt much shreddage (except for The Saddest Day), but the guitar work in that band is amazing.

This turned out way bigger than I though. For this thread I wouldn't put a core next to herman li's name but thanks for responding anyway.

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.

This is the only decent one I've seen besides the typical BTBAM guy and maybe Buz & Ken.

I'll add Dan Weller & Pin from SikTh

Dan Jacobs and S. Gates? Really? Time to branch out guys.

pssht, pussy, its only in 4/4.


any real t3h shredlar l33t d00d could play it in 9/16



ur rite 4/4 is t3h l4m3.

But I'd agree with the guy from Psyopus being a good shredder. But the definition of shredder would be something along the lines of MEEDLY MEEDLY MEEDLY.

I saw them live two Fridays ago and you cant appreciate the guitar work till you see it live

Paul Waggoner is pretty damn good too, without being abusive of the solo (like Li or Gates)

they are coming with the acacia strain, job for a cowboy, and see you next tuesday, but i have to miss it because the gf wants to go to the ****in stupid school dance. i'd take her to the show but she'd probably come out with a black eye, broken nose, and half a boob torn off.

Synyster Gates kicks ass. His solos are amazing. Like his solo on "To End the Rapture".

The guy from Psyopus.

Paul Waggoner.

And a guitarist in one of the local bands here.
They're broken up now, but they'll be back together soon hopefully.

Check 'em out. That dude shreds.
