Alright, we've all seen internet fights over who is faster, Malmsteen or that guy from DT, and whatsoever.

But, have you ever wondered, who is the slowest guitar player of them all?

I was gonna nominate Stephen or Greg from Sunn O))), but I decided to add a rule.

No drone bands.

Have at you!
So an irishman walks out of a bar.

Sunn O))) would be my first pick, but since there's no drone bands, I would have to go with Jus Oborn of Electric Wizard. That stuff is slow and insanely heavy.

well.... hard to determine, Could be gary more when he do that never ending note live when playing Parsienne walkways

It's a band like Sunn O))) or Wolf Eyes that plays music that pretty much sounds like nothing else out there. The songs are usualy instrumentals. It's hard to explain. Just look up Sunn O))) (which sounds like down-tuned guitar riffs being played at 2 beats a minute).

it should be more like, which SHRED or which METAL player is the slowest (eg. which famous shred guitarist is the slowest) or something

Erm...David Gilmour?

those are all examples of people who would probably qualify as candidates for the title of slowest guitar player, which is what the ts was asking. and they encompass a good many answers that other users have/will probably give.

I just call him a racist streak of piss tbh.

On topic: probably Dave Gilmour, most Pink Floyd songs I've heard are unbearably slow and dull.

Woops! I'm sorry, did I insult your 'God'.
Clapton is racist. In the 70's he stood on stage and told people to vote for Enoch Powell (leader of the National Front) to stop England becoming a 'black colony'. This was at a time when racism was a huge problem, and his comments sparked the first 'Rock against Racism' gigs.
I never mentioned his guitar playing.

Maybe I didn't get owned. Muddy Waters was his biggest influence, so says my mothers Clapton discography. Muddy Waters is an African American.

Obviously the slowest would be people who don't play guitar.

nope, not worst ever. the ones in the pit about penises are the worst. come on, it's something new and un-boring.

as for my input, i think that Dave Gilmour is the slowest, but he does some really awesome stuff so it's all good.
