i hear alot of people saying that they are better than alot of the professional guitarists out there, and im sure most of it is a load of BS. but i was interested to see if anyone really truly believes they are better than a certain guitarist out there. so who could you upstage? and i mean this as a serious question, i dont want people saying stupid **** like "herman li" so if your thinking about posting that then just shut the hell up right now, no one is going to believe you anyway.

Um...Billy Joe Armstrong is pretty sucky.


Wrong. His music is sucky, don't be so quick to judge a player based on what music they play.

Edit: Scratch that, I just googled 'Billy Joe Shred'. Not only did my computer melt, but I am now forced to listen to American Idiot whenever I open an MP3.

my friend is better than herman li.... no joke but hes in college right now youtube him xRisingForcex for proof and yeah he is a HUGE yngwie fan lol

patrick stump. Most people here couldnt touch herman li, no matter how ****ty he is compared to Friedman, Malmsteen, pretty much every decent shredder, and even Hammett.

ive listened to live videos of him soloing and i gotta admit hes pretty sucky, his music sucks too. I mean hes been playing in a band for 15 years now he should be able to shred and riff but he just plays powerchords in drop D.

He gets the job done.

From what I've seen, I'm much less sloppy than Heart's current guitarist, Craig Bartock.

no he's not, I despise dragonforce and herman ri, but he is obviously not even close to one of the worst guitar players in history, he is insanely overrated but he is clearly not even close to the title of worst guitar player.

in the bassist realm Pete Wenzt is pretty much beatable by anyone...seeing a signature bass with his name on it makes me sick

Ray Toro from My Chemical Romance is a beast. I'll bet money he's a better guitar player than 90% of this site.


And, I do believe there's no such thing as a "professional" giutar player, just professional musicians.

I saw Pantera live once, Dime changed into a body bag right there on stage.

Pretty much anyone in a UK based mainstream indie band right now, I'm confident I could out-play. Basically because that genre has an emphasis on "We're lads from the pub who can't play for ****, but we made this anyway."

TBH, I think I can match a lot of the less shreddy rock/metal guitarists in terms of ability; I just don't have the amount of experience they do, therefore they beat me. I'm pretty sloppy and inconsistent on occasion, so I still have a few years to go really.

Still very easy stuff. I'm hearing a lot of that same stock blues lick.

I'm sure I'm better than Sid Vicious... I think... yep I am

From what I've heard he was so bad that his amp was switched off during shows.

I don't get it. Care to elaborate?

that **** is easy, as in beinner easy, the first good solo wasn't even that great, easy pentatonic stuff.


The first solo is pretty good and thats definately not sucky, just because someone ones not virtuious doesnt mean they suck.....

Quote by Lord Of Donkeys
The first one was pretty good but other than that...SUCKY!!


Well thats enough proof that he's good and just chooses not to play anything difficult in his music......

You should stick to categorizing. Any metal player can shred the f*ck out of Billie joe. Or some punk guitarist.
Now lets see Metal player against Metal player.
McLovin is my hero!

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

Quote by Vermintide
Don't shreddzorzz solos like that negate the fact it's punk? Punk is supposed to be an active rebellion against complex solos and so on, is it not?

Not to me I love punk and I can't understand why anyone would'nt want to play to the best of there ability...To me punk is a style of music not a lifestyle.....

surely if your all so good then you've all been signed with ease?


lol
alot of people (not all of you UG) think that what these guitarist do on stage is easy. But you have to remember some bands play for hours and hours. Venue after Venue. There's were they have the edge. consistency.

Also what they play on there tracks will not always show a guitarists ability.

Better than:

McFly
Busted (before they disbanded thank god)
Generally the (new) indie genre scene, though ofc there are exceptions...Bands i've never heard may be better than me obviously

But, as Steve Vai said, "No-one has the right to say our noise is better than their noise". Easy to say that when you're one of the best guitarists in the world though isn't it Steve?
