My parents mission in life is to make me succeed,
So technically my mission in life is to oppose my parents,
But I must do this by failing....

Besides that,
Its really not that bad of choices.

These are basic mainstream players,
The poll is designed for that.

Also I didnt say the poll would be for one genere,
These are the players that are considered, "Not retarted"
In the guitaring world. Besides the last one, my friend typed that one...

Ive said it once,
And by god ill say it again!

John Frusciante sucks. He can come up with a melody occausionally that doesnt suck,
But flea and anthony made that band and got it this far.

Oh my god.

John has more soul and emotion in his playing than all of those guys combined.

With the exception of Jimi of course.

You guys can't be serious.

Speed does not equal supremacy.

'Soul' and 'Emotion' are bullshit terms

first of all u can't compare bands like machinehead and bodom to hendrix, and if we're talkin about famous band guitarsits wheres jimmy page and randy rhoads etc. this list is a bit specific to certain genres "metal"

Mat heafy, and corry Beauliu have re-invented harmony parts for the new generation of metal, he deserves not only applause but respect. Not only that the band stepped up to their record company and told them to stfu, that they were going to write w/e the crap they wanted to.

Also hes a good guitarist. And I dont mean he can randomly thrash on randomized notes (points at sam totman) and be called awsome, hes licks are all very thought out.

Randy Rhoads doesnt compare to Alexi Laiho, or Jimmy hendrix, so I left him out, my friend suggested I put him in, but I say nay!

Im surprised I havent got any crap about Zakk wylde or Baito yet...

Says me

Just because you think one guitarist plays more 'emotionally' than the other doesn't mean anyone else thinking differently is wrong

Its true speed doesn't equal supremacy...but it also doesn't mean a lack of emotion in playing

i'm naming my band The Biggest Retards on the Planet our first song will be called
"Shoop da Ureh Ureh"

^Re-Invented Harmony parts? Go listen to At the Gates.

Anyway, I'll go with Robert Flynn. And I'll pick either Logan Mader or Phil Demmel as TTAOE and BME were my favourite Machine Head album.


To the first part- Yes for the new genere of metal, there music is very thought out on both guitars.

And the blackening is going to friggen own.

You misunderstand me, they didn't re-invent anything. They're doing the same shit bands like At the Gates and pretty much every Melo Death band from the 90's done.

Once again,
Giant Raven speaks the truth.
I with their were more people
Who look at it logically,
People either can't shut the **** up about speed,
Or can't shut the **** up about emotion.
It's merely a matter of taste and the musical direction desired.
