He keeps arguing with me that Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance are the greastest guitarists ever,he thinks theyre better than Malmsteen,Becker,Vai,Alexi and Roope,Dime,Hendrix etc. and he found this solo Gates played live on limewire and hes lik its the best solo ever,its comprised of divebombs and drunken mistakes,please tell me i'm not losing it and hes just really stupid
#2
Are they the best ever? No. Is everyone entitled to their opinion, even if you don't like it? YES
#3
a lot of those you said were people who ae borng to listen to, they may be the greatest guitarists btt not the best guitar... people. and in that case it's just a case of musical aste not actualt technical gooditty

He's either trying to piss you off (likely) or actually clinically retarded to the point of rabid fanboyism.

There's nothing you can do, he's allready lost.

that's the thing about people like him. No matter how idiotic his opinion may seem, you'll make an even bigger fool of yourself by trying to tell him how wrong he is.

no hes a rabid fanboy,not as bad as the kid in my old music class who was licking the A7X issue of guitar world,but still pretty bad.

Vai isn't brong at all. If you go to one of his gigs or see a live DVD his shows are completely awesome. For the first song he plays blindfolded and at hte end manages to hold a note while swinging around holding the guitar by the whammy bar. Then he gets lights put on his fingers so you can see then go... then him, his bassist and two other guitarists all play at the same time, but the person on the left frets the other persons guitar and strums their own... awesome!

So this person loves these guys, now there's nothing wrong with that. We all have our favourites y'know.

They arent the most technically skilled guitar players, and definately are not even close to the best guitar-playing musicians. Show him some Malmsteen, Dream Theater, Children of Bodom, Gilbert, EVH, etc. Hopefully his mind will prevail over his fanboy-ness.
#17
Okay, I like A7X alot and I think Synyster Gates and Zacky V. are really good, but not as good as some of the guitarists the TS listed. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Just ignore ur friend.

Tell me it wasn't this video, please...

If it was.... yeah, that guy's lost... I don't know about the rest, I haven't spent hours watching the rest of the videos, but it's not a matter of taste for that one in particular. It's objectively terrible (just listen to the tapping part or... sweeping?), and then look at the comments; you'll see that people who say the truth and say it wasn't good all get thumbs down, while people who say it was like teh best solo evah, have about 500 thumbs up?
Now THAT's crazy fanboyism.

Damn, I think I won't sleep today after watching that >.<

Well, as you can see on my profile, I'm an A7X fan. I believe these guys are very good.Not as good as Vai etc, but they have talent. I say- to each his own. People always try to talk me into not liking him, as your friend, I don't believe it'll work. More than that, the more people reject and dislike that music, the more he'll like it. It'll make him feel he likes something very unique.
Now, don't flame me guys, I'm just saying my opinion.
