i really dont get how so many people have the nerve to hate.
1. syn is better than you
2. yes he is. just because you practiced HIS song 100 million times and did it right once through doesn't mean you are as good. he WROTE all those riffs and solo, and is put on the spot constantly to play it flawlessly in one take.
3. refer to #1
4. his dad pwns you too. lol

huuuuuuuuur, No.

The guy is crap, he can't play cleanly and frequently plays random out of key notes. My arse are they played on purpose, the guy is crap and is in the music business because his dad is connected and kids love the look.

Ooooo, generic rock guitar player! Watch out!

he's nothing special

his dad can probably play a lot better than in the video, but all he played was power chords. syn can solo decently, but sloppy at times.

Synester Gates sucks. His dad is meh. Also, since when does your father being able to play guitar make his son automatically good? People are idiots.
#14
rather than quote and pick apart your arguments individually, I'd just like to pose one universal question to everyone that hates on syn and Ax7. Can I please see you do better? Let me hear your album, or just one song. One solid song is all it will take for me to denounce this band and praise you as the deserving one of all the fame.

Im with you dude. I mean, i like synyster but just because his dad is good doesnt mean his son is.

And why do people judge guitarist on how good they play instead of hoiw good it sounds? I mean.. just look at punk stuff. To me it sounds good but its soooo easy to play.

well, to pick apart your arguement, in my case at least, I believe that Synyster is OVERRATED, and definately not the next Petrucci, as some people have said.

Plus, that's stupid. Your reasoning is "if you can play better than them, then you're allowed to hate them." Fool. I hate them because I don't like the music. Now go away.

No one here needs to be any good at guitar to say Synyster is shit or they just don't like him. We can easily compare him to a myriad of guitarists out there. These kinds of arguments have so many flaws in them, it's frankly stupid they are able to last as long as they do. It's all opinion. You have opinion; I have opinion; everyone has opinion; no one's definately right; no one's definately wrong.

1. thats debatable
2. i doubt he did most of his stuff in one take, they are known to use a lot of studio techniques (i.e. cutting and pasting different takes of solos together) and he can never pull them off well live.
3.once again, thats debatable
4. not really.

looks like somebody isn't very well informed about his idol - the guy admitted that he's not so good and he needs a bunch of practice to get the stuff down like its on the cd.

1. I have to admit, I can't play guitar for shit, but my saxophone skills > His guitar skills
2. No, he really isnt. I could get his song in my first try, actually, I DID get his song in one try. By the way, he doesnt play it flawlessly, he's quite horrible live.
3. Refer to answer #1.
4. His dad being decent doesn't make him decent.

And Ill be honest, I do like some A7X stuff, but this guy is hugely overrated, he's not good at all.

Doesn't sound good either...

And the guitar is a music instrument, if you didn't notice. It's subject to being expected to be played with skills.
#24
@liberation...

so you can't play guitar for shit but you nailed the solo on the first try, you must have had the sheet music and about a decade of practice under your belt to do that perfectly. if you consider that playing like shit, I salute you.

About that dude, AlreadyGone. I clicked on the Synyster sucks ass thing. I saw it.. how does that make him suck? Because he puts his thumb on the top strings. Seriously. Well, i guess kurt cobain sucks for his horrible techniques. and Jimi Hendrix for his techniques.

He is very hit and miss, but he is good.

don't second guess me. You'll just get embarrased. When you learn to read, you'll notice that I didn't say that YOU said he was the next Petrucci. Secondly, the only reason I go into these sorts of threads is to comment on other people's stupidity, plus these threads gather lots of controversy, which I love.

And yes, the man does deserve credit. He can be good live, but he's nowhere near guitar godliness. He gets enough credit, albeit it's distributed quite unevenly amongst the population.

Go play a Charlie Parker or Pat Martino song and see how much your standards are raised.

edit: to come back to it, the pic in my sig proves his technique isn't the greatest, which kinda ruins the idea of him being this guitar god like many people think. I don't think he's bad, hell, hes much better than me, but he's wayyy overrated.

I don't understand why people hate these guys.I don't listen to them but I might start.They obviously have talent.The drummer is a little too reliant on the double kick but they don't seem to be that bad to me.At least it's not another Fall Out Boy.

His dad's not even that good, he's better than his son, but he ****ed up the Sweet Child of Mine riff, and his solo was just chromatics and pentatonics.

Kurt Cobain did suck at guitar and no Synester Gates sucks ass because he's a pro-tools guitarist

edit: Oh and about that Synester Gates sucks ass thing, he sucks because you don't use your thumb while sweep picking, hell i don't even play guitar and i know that
