So I was having a talk on another forum about music, and I brought up guitarists such as Vai, Satch, Gilbert, and Petrucci....

Anyway, he basically flat out said:

All of these guitar players recycle techniques and don't do much else, which is why other guitar players hate listening to them.


Is this true?? I always-and from what I've gathered from this community- held these guys in high regard....

Do you like anime/manga?

wtf? why didnt you punch one of them in the face or something? they're not girls, they are fat chavs, they are their own gender

hey if you take it to a certain extant, thats pretty much every musician that ever lived. The way i think about it, there are probably plenty of people how have played guitar long enough that they can play anything that any of these guys play. But if skill was the only thing involved and not creativity, then why dont we have like thousands of guitar virtuosos?

I think it really all depends on your musical taste. I'm not a big fan of them, but I have respect for them.

Oh, and this is the internet. I have the right to be a douchebag. Fuck off.

of course they recycle stuff, all guitarists do, and i mean ALL GUITARISTS. The last truly innovative to explode in guitar playing is tapping, which happened in 1979. And it wasn't even invented then, just popularized by Van Halen

I think you're stupid. To use ultimate-guitar speak on you.

Ahem, 'Oh noes, someone on my internetz sayz thisorz'

Why do people here whine so much, it's like England.

You think I'm actually worried about this? I could care less. He just made me lol at his ignorance so I thought I'd share. Especially as he said guitarists can't stand to listen to them...

im a complete ramones knock off


NOES! Me too (I like the Ramones BTW )

Seriously though, I do feel some of that is true, mainly because I can't stand that virtuoso stuff (except Buckethead and John5)

He's saying BS.
Listen to Joe Satriani - Midnight, and Joe Satriani - Satch Boogie.
Listen to Steve Vai - Tender Surrender, and Steve Vai - Bad Horsie.

I don't see any recycled techniques over there.
