just wanted to know what yall thought...i was listening to some bass exercises that are riffs throughout the years and the 50's and 60's seemed fairly simple...and then the 70's started to throw me a few challenges....when was the best guitar era or are we in it?

Pretty much the 80s were big guitar years for shred and technical stuff. early 90s (Pantera era) was pretty tech too.

As far as rock music goes, it's gotta be the '50s. Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, Zakk Wylde or whoever else you worship wouldn't even have a job if it weren't for the likes of Chuck Berry.

i think now because we have everything from the past already and then some


yeh but theres not as many original guitarists, no real innovators. the last true innovator was EVH with tapping. And emo guitarists bring the score way down. in the 80s it was hard to find a rock band with a bad guitarist, and the prog rock era had some geniuses like steve howe. today's guitarists are either possers or people i have never heard of like you

very true, there aren't really any brand new innovators but there's alot of good guitarists around, sometimes you just gotta look harder for the good stuff

I'd say now. I'm not talking about the way popular artists play or anything, but I personally believe that each generation of an instrument is better than it's last because we're always discovering new ways of playing, new effects, etc. Especially in a technological age such as this.

how come there's nothing before the 50's on your poll? it's hard for me to chose but i listen to shred the most so, the 80's.
