You posted the exact same thing three times in a row. In order to do that, you must confirm that you want to post that because it will tell you to confirm that you posted "The exact same message in the last 5 minutes", unless you edited each part a bit, which, still, would mean the same thing.

YOU ARE SPAMMING.

THIS THREAD IS SPAM.

A THREAD LIKE THIS WAS LOCKED 2 DAYS AGO.

Not wasting my time reporting.

um triple posting aside im sure once a mod gets on here it will get locked. and btw, this is really more a pit thread, not a musician talk thread. this forum is for questions and debate over the actual aspects of musical creation. things such as "what is the third mode of C major" or "what chords are in this key" * shudders *

not

"which of these is the best metal guitarist and why"

now had you asked a question pertaining to a specific guitarist and their technique or phrasing, amidst all the flaming you might get an answer of some form.

Where the heck is John Petrucci? Sure he's a progressive metal guitarist, but prog metal is still metal.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Half of these aren't even "metal" Brian Haner Jr, EVH...Paul Gilbert?

No. Just o. The guitarists you listed aren't even that great, Gilbert is, but the rest are overrated as balls.

Reporting makes it easier for mods to close threads that are not in the right place.

And as for where this belongs, I'm afraid it doesn't belong anywhere, except possibly the Pit. Polls comparing guitarists are pointless, and can lead to arguments and flaming. If you want to discuss an artist, find their thread in Bands and Artists or make one, if none exists.
