okay i got into an argument who was a better guitarist?

Dimebag or Angus Young?

i said dimebag because he can play really fast (not that this ever makes you a better guitarist) but he also can do chordal work eg The Sleep and Cemetery Gates and he invented guitar squealing.

he said angus young is better because he is older and has had more experience but i said Jason Becker was 20 before he got ALS, he also said "is Dime in the rock hall of fame?" i said "Dime is metal of course he isnt!!" he also said "if dime was so good how come he got shot?" i simply gave a John Lennon Analogy, he said ACDC was better than Pantera but i told him were discussing who is a better guitarist.

i am in no way saying Angus sucks, but i reckon dime was a better guitarist.

so what are your views on it?

They both are highly overrated. Angus is not very good at all IMO. Hes delightfully average as a player.

I still love his stuff though.

I don't think you're supposed to have vs. threads.

But Angus because he doesn't have to play 1000 nps to sound good.

And Johnny Greenwood kills them both

Your spelling probably killed him first. Oh and Angus is better than Dime.
#9
Am I the only one who think this thread is retarded?...

Also, it's impossible to know how good a guitarist is just by listening to their music. For example, Adam Jones from Tool: 70% of Tool songs are power chords in drop D. Do you think that and hammer-ons/pull-offs is the only thing he can do?..

And it's JONNY , not JOHNNY. It's from Jonathan and not John.

angus is good....that's about it, dimebag, is also good, and that's about it, they're both terrible over-rated, and i think angus doesn't do as much as he could, you know, i think dime's ok, he propably is technically good, but i like angus's stuff better, but i think dime has more playing skill though

just remember according to the Rolling Stones mag, Kurt Kobain kicks EVH's ass you cant back up anything with that list
#15
whoever said that acdc solos are impssoble to tab out should never speak ever again. you want songs that are impossible to tab out, listen to buckethead, or john petrucci, or jason becker.

Its true they are different styles but Angus young in my Opinion has a lead. I dont thinks its fair to say he is overrated though because I mean he is an outstanding guitarist and for his time he was one of the best.

#25
In my opinion I think i'd have to go with Dimebag I mean he was so reinventive with the guitar. He practically paved the way for Dean's aswell.

Ever heard of a little band called Black Sabbath?

I hear their guitarist may have used an SG as well but I may be wrong.

I hate Pantera and ACDC alot, but Angus Young is way overrated, and Dimebag seemed like a really cool guy from interviews and stuff, s i go with Dimebag.

Doesn't matter how technically good they are, just so long as you like the music.

Dimebag didn't invent "squealing" as you pu it, Zakk Wylde was doing it with Ozzy when Dime was 14, and I'm sure Angus could play chords too.

Regardless, Dimebag > Young.

Actually, he used a rip-off by Jaydee guitars .

What a retarded thread.

First off, Dime did not invent squeals. Steve Vai and others could do more than he ever could years before.

Secondly, AC/DC is a band for 12 year old kids who don't know what real solos/CR are/is. They do have some catchy tunes though.


No vs. threads


Secondly, could you pick an odder match?

first off no zakk wylde wasnt doin it when dime was 14 because
zakk is only on year older then dime and he started with ozzy at 20
so u need to get ur facts straight
and also dime didnt invent the squeal but he did make it alot more popular and he was one of the first to use it exstensivly in his playing
