I just found this link where Kerry King was talking about how Dime, Zakk and Himself where going to do G3 before he died, I think this would have been a great show a bit of a change from what they normally would have done, what do you guys think about this?

I doubt it would be the official G3. I just think they meant they would copy it.


No offense, but that would probably sound horrible with all three of them up there. Bad tone would destroy the show.

yah.. I'd rather just see Slayer, Pantera, and BLS.. than the three guitarists alone... simply because they don't really write music thats designed for "just" guitar, whereas Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, John Petrucci, and Paul Gilbert all have albums that are solely instrumental, or at the very least, the guitar is the prominant instrument/sound...

I agree with Strike. They're all excellent metal guitarists, but it'd be really boring after like 5 minutes.

what exactly is G3?


Malmsteen, Vai and Satriani

That would have been horrible

Out of them Dimebag>, but they all need to look up the word "tone" and I don't see how they'd make a good show playing lead guitar (like how Vai, Satch, Johnson, Malmsteen, or even Petrucci or Paul Gilbert would - they're all superior players in that sense by a long shot).

Hmm, i don't think it would really work. with G3 it's guitarists that are amazingly good and do loads of differant things so there guitaring can speak for itself. zakk, dime and kerry are great players but there more limated to a few certain teqnuiqes that they use most of the time

Don't get me wrong though, i prefer a shorter, not as tecnicall, catchy solo to a epic instumental anyday

I saw the interview (the guitar world "Ask a guitar hero") where Kerry said he, Zakk, and Dime joked about it and thought it would be cool. They never said they were gonna do it. He stated it would be the only solo project he would ever even consider doing.

And Kerry and Dime were gonna cover a song (don't remember the title) together but decided to do it right and not rush. They planned it for win Damage Plan stopped touring, but we all know what happened. He stated he would like to get with Zakk and do it for Dime as well.

The point is that not one of those players actually have solo careers, they are guys who play in bands, not the bands themselves (though it could be argued that Zakk is pretty much BLS).

Petrucci probably wouldn't have been on G3 if he hadn't made Suspended Animation.

I love how people hate on guitarists so much. According to this site anyone who has ever picked up a guitar is over-rated and sucks and you'd walk out on...

I'll admit Kerry and Zakk aren't the best, but who the **** are you to say they suck? Kinda like a bum telling someone who works at Mc Donalds to get a real job if you ask me.

Oh stop I would love to Zakk Wylde or Kerry King play a show as a solo guitarist and have it NOT suck - seriously, let's be honest here. I've seen enough of both of them just friggin youtube Zakk Wylde, he's not going to do what the g3 guys do, he's going to do this

http://youtube.com/watch?v=sFUbsFQiLBE

Yeah you might think that's good - that makes him a rockstar, plays in a band, wanks - not a solo musician who gets out there and plays without any sort of singing for an hour

and btw I'm not saying that's bad playing it's not

now if he played a lot of this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Wsih9nUpq2U

it might be okay, I take it it wouldn't be the strongest G3 musically but it would defenatly hit some buttons

but I haven't seen him play like that in a long time, it seems to be more of this

A better one would be Marty Friedman, Alex Skolnick, and hell, why not Mustaine. All three of them own Dimebag, Zakk, and King.

Like what you haven't said hasn't been said a million times also. I think it makes sense because they are being directly being compared to the regular virtuosos that a G3 would have.

It makes no sense because if you saw where Kerry King said anything about this, you would have known he said "like a metal G3" not a G3 with them. It would be nothing like G3 or these "regular virtuosos". Speed doesn't equal skill and just because they play a certain way in their respective bands does not mean they would play the same with each other. Besides G3 is just 3 guys showing off, and leaves me unimpressed.

It's just a tour, and sometimes a compilation. It's not like you can say "G3 sucks!" because that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

I like Steve Vai okay, I think Satch is okay he sorta bores me, I really like Eric Johnson and John Petrucci, and Paul Gilberts pretty good, Malmsteens pretty good - it's whoever is playing and that's why G3 has done some nice shows, because they have genuinely good players playing nice songs nicely

I agree and disagree. Yes the solos and stuff he plays in BLS wouldn't be G3 material, but that doesn't mean he couldn't do it. Him playing with Les Paul vid is this jazz shred clean. He also does some good solo stuff. BLS is a different outlet for music for him. You couldn't play Suicide Messiah and put in a clean virtuoso solo.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=PZ9pY8nbjxQ check this opening solo out. That is good shit

I think Zakk would be good for G3. Same with Dime if he was alive. He could do some good stuff. But Kerry....meh. I like slayer and he can shred okay, but its not G3 material really. With Zakk and Dime i get the vibe from them and some of their slow songs (every bls acoustic song, cemetery gates) that they could scale it back and do a sweet virtuos song if they wanted. King's style is too atonal. I don't think he actually knows any scales.
#35
Terrible idea.
The whole idea of virtuoso guitar is to have some kind of catchy melody behind the technicality, Kerry King would never make it.

And I think Wylde and Dimebag are way over rated.

1. Yea, that would suck as a tour. Maybe an album of covers with those guys.
2. Petrucci did SA because people asked him on the first G3 he did "Where can I get your stuff?"
3. Am I the only one who read the bit about Kerry King making the nail studded wristbands?
