I don't want this to be a vs thread

Can someone give me some solid facts why John Frusciante or Derek Trucks are better than one another? Me and my friend were having this discussion, but he has no respect for Frusciante at all

I know they have two completely different genres

I respect Trucks but I haven't listened to him really

could someone recommend some videos that are awesome of Trucks?


Theguitarist will probably close this soon...

EDIT: I like this alot

Well John is the most amazing human being who creates the most beautiful, powerful and emotional music. I haven't even heard of the other guy...

different styles of music, but Trucks is considered to be pretty much the best blues slide guitarist out there now. He's played with Skynard, his own band, Clapton, and just really has his **** together.
Frusciante is just more popular and successful overall, and has more of a funk influence.

Well I prefer John and I've heard Trucks' play slide, and I doubt John could touch it.


It's not really meant to be a versus thread, I'm just looking for some thoughts and ideas, I respect both of them equally because they're doing what the love to do and are successful at it.
