if frusciante keeps going, i think he can be up there


He's known for his emotion but not for speed, the next biggy will have to apeal to both, the shredders and the emotives...(I couldn't think of a word...)

EDIT:I think Chris Cheny would if The Living End were far more mainstream. Total Guitar are already prasing Matt Bellamy as the next Hendrix or SRV, hes a brillient guitarist and I love Muse but i think thats a little to far...

Probably not another pure instrumental shred one for quite a while, at least not one who's known outside of guitar circles.

But there will definetly be ones in more song-oriented bands, like Jeff Loomis from Nevermore. Great guitarists who are in bands that people that don't play guitar like.

I think Frusciante is the most popular guitarist at the moment, and I think if anyone from this time is going to be immortalised it will be him.
And of course there will be more guitar legends you fool!

Not really, everything's been saturated.

It's all about speed, now; it's cold, dark and scary.


Too true. Well phrased mate.

"Hendrix, Slash, Vai, Gilbert etc." (Don't forget Satch and Malmsteen, oh and Petrucci)

What did all these people have? They had (and still have apart from Hendrix, RIP) a real craft, technical skill, emotion inducing playing, originality, creativity and of course, the SONGS.

"Speed" alone is **** all compared to those things.

I don't think anyone will be as legendary as Hendrix, Page or Clapton, simply because people aren't that interested in guitar itself anymore. Yeah, people who play guitar will idolize people like Steve Vai, but relatively few people who don't play guitar have even heard of him.

that is part of my motivation to be an awesome guitarist, so there will be a new awesome guitarist. However, if you don't think there's amazing guitarists, shift your focus to the European prog and metal bands. A great many of those bands are something else!
#13
Honestly, I think the main thing is that music has gotten split apart soooo much, there will always be "Genre God's" but I think the fact that everything has come so far there probably won't be another globally recognizable, respected figure in music.

There's guys that I'd place up there with them (and curse you for missing out Hammett - he may not have quite the skills of a Vai, but f*** me if he hasn't made more kids love guitar solos than anyone else).

It helps that I'm a huge shred fan, but I regard the Trivium guys, the DragonForce guys (no flaming please, this is MY opinion) and Alexi Laiho as right up at the top level. Rob Arnold from Chimaira has an amazing quality to his soloing as well.

In terms of pure skill, hows about Rusty Cooley?

Um, no. Ignoring your first statement, I think most metalheads take the attitude of "He's good, but not my thing". Metal fans tend to have a high respect for musicianship...there are plenty of dicks who take the attitude you mentioned, but I think "majority" is an overstatement.

Exactly...everyone is right, and everyone is wrong.

All of these people are part of your favorite genre, but I haven't heard of some of them.

It's not just "Rock" anymore, it's "blahblahblahblahblah" now.

Ask a metalhead who he views as a "Modern Guitar Legend" and most likely, you'll get a metal player. Same with every genre...

I really think that the days of "THE Guitar God" is over

Except.. Most of the people I know despise hip-hop of all sorts because they're morons. It's sad, really.


What's even more sad is that both Chris Thorn and Rogers from Blind Melon should be legends, and they're not.

Nope i cant see it. There are no young guitarists who come close to the legends you have named. Everyone seems to be into Indie music nowadays (at least where im from) and it is the worlds crappiest guitar music - few chords here and there with a 4 note riff repeated over and over. Also if Frusciante is the closest thing to a legend, there is no hope. Not to flame him - but is is just me who thinks he is WAYYYYYYYYY over rated.......hes done nothing that is anywhere near great and people build shrines to him and praise the ass right off him.

Yeah, but the motivation's not 'playing' anymore, most of 'em just want to be in a band, get laid, or just use it as a fashion accessory. There are countless guitar-players, nowadays, but very, very few guitarists.


Well said.

I know plenty of guitar players who think that learning power chords achieves their desired level of coolness.

People pick up guitars nowadays to play Hey There Delilah and pick up ditsy girls that don;t know the difference.

I think this whole subject depends on what amount skill/feel is demanded to enable a guitarist to attain legendary status. I think there will be legends in the future though.

i think John Frusciante will be immortalized as our generation's best guitarist. overrated too. lol. but you can't deny his emotions and feelings for his instrument. he's one of my role models in life.

you mean the metalhead elitists? At least for me (a metal lover) I appreciate talent when I see it.

He's by no means technically talented, but few guitarists can put emotion into his playing like he does.

I guess some of you don't really open your eyes too much...

Every month Guitar World or some other guitar mag is praising the new 'god' of guitar.
If any of you have ever listened to Power Metal you'll see that guitar 'gods' are about as common as stars in the sky. Jazz, classical guitar, and blues-- all these genres have up and coming artists every few months. Open your eyes and see that almost anybody who picks up the instrument has the potential to be a legend. So, as long as that little kid looking for something to occupy the time they aren't stimulating their genitals picks up a guitar-- music will have its legends.

Gus G has been getting some attention, but he rarely plays to his full capabilities.

I don't think there'll be any more big guitar heroes like there is now, they will just have small cult followings and the mainstream (mainstream metal, not mainstream mainstream) will hardly know them.
