Used search bar, cant find any similar threads
If you could have a 2 hour guitar lesson from any living or dead person, who would it be?
And why?

I'd have to go with either Satriani for his theory knowledge and technical knowhow or John Frusciante for his amazing feel

BB King. I'm not into people preaching about theory and technical stuff, but the emotion he manages to put into every note is amazing.

dude that was my third choice
EDIT: also i dunno about preaching but my theory could use a lot of work thats why i said that. But i guess someone with great feel would be more important

some guy actually paid $27000 for an angus young lesson i think it was, angus did it for some reason, might have been charity i dunno but yeah. But me either dimebag, adam jones or petrucci i guess..
#6
me i would have to say Kirk Hammett! because he seems to know how to make the guitar sound have emotion while he plays and he looks like he'd be nice and teach anyone who like to be teached to play good! plus the man is why metallica is so metal and so popular. his solos rock! If you took him out of metallica they would be just another metal band!

Paul Gilbert.

He's my second guitar hero, but, lately he's really been pushing first... either way I wouldn't want Joe Walsh teaching me as... well... I don't think Joe would be fully there anymore.

I've also been modeling my normal playing after Paul Gilbert so I'd really benefit from that.
#9
It would have to be Marko Vukcevich. There's not really much he could teach me in just two hours that I would hold onto for the rest of my time playing but it would be cool just say that Bronson taught me how to play Or Pat O'Brien
#12
Either Slash or Frusciante, I love both of their styles of play very much!
Probably Frusciante.
#13
Either Lyndsey Buckingham or Mick Ronson.

Or Ace Frehley. I'd learn f*ck all, but we'd have a right laugh.

I'm with this guy. I've been trying to write solos like Kirk Hammett since I got into metal. I would do anything in my ability to get a lesson from him.

I'd have to say Matt Bellamy, because of his songwriting skill. But if not, maybe Satriani for some really in-depth technical stuff

John Petrucci.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

adam jones. i think he is a genius. but i dont think the guitar teaching would go well because i'd probably have a heartattack

Dave Mustain because he can prabably teach me how he write those killer riffs. Either him or maybe Randy Rhoads.

guthrie govan

probably the sickest guitarist ive EVER seen live

Jimi Hendrix for his creativity and style, or Slash for his lead work.

Joe Pass.


OR

it would take more than two hours and he's not a guitarist but if I could get Ornette Coleman to try to teach me harmolodics that would be ridiculously cool
#32
Shawn Lane.
Naturally, everyone else is wrong.

I'd just want to hear him talk gear. The guitar tone on Dopesmoker is god, realized in full stereo sound.


But for a lesson...

Marc Ribot (Tom Waits)
Larry LaLonde (Primus)


or, for dead guys...
Niccolo Paganini

Or, since I was just listening to them playing live on a live album I have, either Dave Matthews or Tim Reynolds.

Michael Romeo or Luca Turilli. Maybe even Jason Becker. Who knows how good he'd be if he hadn't gotten ALS.

since i don't/can't play lead to save my life it would be scott ian - anthrax, he is who got me started way back.
