do you guys actually think dimebag darrell is the greatest guitarist of all time? i mean theres vai, van halen, rhoads, satriani, malmsteen however you spell his name i mean i think chuck schuldiner is better than dimebag darrell, someone help me with this one...

yes there are thousands of great guitar players unnoticed and noticed but my friends were likek "dimebag is the best" and "dimebag is better than anyone" but i mean does anyone here really think dimebag was that great? i myself prefer rhoads over dimebag but i need opinions here...

What a dumb question.

There's no such thing as greatest guitarist of all time. All of the other guitarists you mentioned are lolsauce.
#3
There are hundreds of players better than Dime. Dime was good, but horribly overrated.
#4
There is no true "Greatest" guitarist.
Differnet guitarists are better than others at different things.
Do I think dime is The best? No
Do I appreciate him? Hell yes
Here's my Youtube channel.
I play guitar and video games on it.
You're more than welcome to check it out.

Dimebag's playing is so terrible that one of his own fans killed him.

Zakk>dime in my opinion. They are fair game to compare.

Saying david gilmour is better is hard to do. Thats why those shredders cant be compared to him..

Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

And that's not taking into account jazz players and classical guitar players.
What about Paco De Lucia, Yama****a, John Mclaughlin, Chris Broderick, Li Jie...

Dime is a good guitarist, don't get me wrong, but he is in no way the best ever. I really hate how people all of a sudden started hailing him after he got killed.

I agree. Chuck>Dimebag.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Venetallica, stop embarrasing yourself. It was a joke. Dimebag was awesome but deffinately not the best.

Dimebag was a great guitarist. Without him and a few other bands durring the 90's, metal would have been took over by korn,limpbizket,and slipknot. Thanks for keeping it real Dime.

Dime is my favorite guitar player to be honest i know that theres better but he was a very creative guitarist.

The look on their face was priceless, and they ran, and I mean ran like a bat out of hell.

It's quite clear that Adrian Smith and Dave Murray are the greatest guitarists of all time (and also Dave Gilmour).

Dime was good, though.

thank you Venetallica i share you opinion of this fool.
but i think my idea of decapitating him with a guitar string might be more painful and slower.

either that or crucify him on a cross made of the bones of his loved ones and then burn his house down.

or both

Yep, and lots of UG does

Dimebag was good, but like others said, it's subjective. To those who said David Gilmour...I wouldn't say he's a good guitarist, but he is a great musician.
#37
its all a matter of opinion.. i mean.. i think he was good at what he did.. but thats the same as when i say my buddies 5 chords are good for the gospel he plays with his family (laem i know but we love him anyway).. i personally think to say the /best/ ever with anyone is an exageration, theres no way to test it, i mean if you can play fast fine but do you have the theory and experience and the ear, the talent.. etc.. theres just so many factors and its hard to judge that sort of thing.. i like everything from the most simple of stuff like the Sex Pistols to ****in sweeps all over the place like say.. the classical im learning (dont laugh its for the sake of the experience ill get out of it.. i wanna learn as many styles as i can)

theres a lot of famous guitarists who are only well known because of their band, most of which are fairly overrated eg. slash, angus young, the edge, billie-joe armstrong, kurt cobain, its the catchy riffs and sounds that make people think theyr so good.

ive probably made a lot of enemies just now lol....
