One plays lead guitar for Metallica, one of the world's most successful and talented bands. The other was kicked out of Metallica for erratic behavior - Oh yeah, and founded the equally successful band Megadeth!

So, who is your favorite and why?

My pick is obvious.

id have to go with hammett simply for the fact that he has much more catchy style of playing. Mustaine does seem to have more intracate stuff though
#9
...Duh.

Dave Mustaine is a God of rhythm guitar.

Pretty damned good lead player too, in my opinion.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?
#10
Mustaine. Holy Wars alone proves it. Playing that **** AND singing it at the same time? Damn...

But I also just like Megadeth more than Metallica, so maybe that's why.
#11
Metallica was good when they had Dave and now they suck... Megadeth is amazing... to me the answer is obvious. Dave all the way, he can do rythym, solo, sing and hes just incredibly talented. Dave kickes Kirks ass everyday of the week and twice on sundays.

From 83-Black Album, Hammett.
That was before he sucked.
From Countdown/RIP, Mustaine, definitely.

They both have a unique style of playing and I believe Mustaine's work is usually more technical. Mustaine/Friedman > Hammett/Hetfield
#14
First off Mustaine is a god
however MEgadeth is no way as popular as metallica however i still believe that Mustaine is amazing at writing songs-his riffs are phenomenal
however when it comes to solos Kirk wins because his solos are a lot more melodic and varied.
Mustaine solos sound frantic all the time to me...
however still i say mustaine rules

Gotta go with Mustaine. Simply for the fact that he writes the songs in addition to doing some of the soloing.
#17
Dave all the way. Altough his solos are usually limited to very fast thrashy solos, while Kirk can do slower stuff as well, he's written some of the best metal riffs/songs ever. Kirk? He wrote some cool solos, like Fade to Black or Master of Puppets but most of his solos are forgettable.
#18
In terms of pure soloing skill, it goes to Mustaine. Although Hammett has a much more epic style of guitar songwriting.
#20
Holy wars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


mustainzy all the way
#21
Oh good god, Dave Mustaine because he actually writes enjoyable solos instead of ones that play fast then have five second full bends in the middle of nowhere *cough* *cough* Dyers Eve *cough* Blackened* etc.

Just so no Metallica fanboys kill me, I like both those songs.

This should have been a poll.

MEGADAVE

Far as I'm concerned, Mustaine wrote the second best album for Metallica, and besides that, he pretty much is Megadeth. Kirk is talented, but compared to Mustaine, he isnt much.

its hard for me to choose. I dont really think that either are that great. Dont get me wrong, i love Metallica, Megadeth too, not as much though..lol...its just im picky on what i consider a talented guitarist, to me its a combination of talent and knowledge

But, As of today, I'd have to go with Kirk, because i recently Dave started an article for Guitar World, and the first thing out of his mouth was along the lines of: "I really dont know what im doing, so it will be a journey for the both of us"


but I will admit, lately, my love for Kirk has been declining, I dotn know why, but now that I can play more of his solos, and ive "unlocked" his style(if that makes since), he just doesnt seem as good.

damn it, that was too long...damn my wondering mind

You're a total fu-ckass. Your opinion is void. Go blow dogs for quarters - maybe a gang of poodles want to blow you (if you're lucky). Street workers are high in demand. Great skilled trade.

How are you so retarded? Heafy is original and amazing, he's like so young. Synyster is a ghey emo twat.

I dont think Rust In Peace was serious. Synyster definetly isnt "ghey" hes actually got some talent even though his stage name sucks ass.

I didn't imply he was "ghey" I just don't respect all the fellation that the man gets from people who actually sound like I did in my previous post.
