For all those who hate zakk I would like to get your opinion on this, even though you have probably seen and heard it before.

I honestly dont see how anyone can not like this, but that probably just because I am biased.

Like It?

Yes or No. Reason?

I am bored and interested in seeing the results.

I think it doesn't take long before zakk remembers who he is and goes back to his usual pentatonic wank thus negating his attempt to trick us into thinking he can leave the wah pedal alone and not just flail his fingers across the oh so reptative patterns he's known for.

zakk is a good player....but there are alot better than him...i personally dont like him because he is kinda repetitive and uses waaaaaaay too much pinch harmonics....

Zakky is amazing. End of. Very modern, maybe that's what people hate. Resentment for the new, unless it's A7X, Bullet or some other garbage like that...

DOOOOD ZAKK WYLDE IS GOD MAN.... actually seriously I don't have a problem with him, it's good that he can put a lot of emotion into his playing, but I agree with the fact that he can't leave his Wah alone, I purchased a Wylde Wah and I haven't touched it for a couple of months

Are you kidding? I love this video.

EDIT: Thought you said you can't see how anyone can like it. Yeah, I love it.
#11
I agree that he over uses pinches but not all the time. For instance the vid I posted. Whether you like him or not I dont think you can argue with the fact that he is a good player.

I dont know what it is but I could listen to stuff like that all day. The start is beautiful

Been done before, seriously. I honestly think Zakk has just run outta riffs or something. But his first few bits with Ozzy and his own band were damn good. He has control over his guitar, a decent tone, and a good heart. Therefore, I salute him.

Edit: yeah that thing is damn good. He put some thought into it.

isnt that the real problem though

he has next to no restraint ... he couldve worked that through into a wonderful track to fit the backing but instead its ... whack the wah on and wank out some more of the same for the next minute.

He's a good guitar player, but personally, not interesting enough for me. I like his work with Ozzy Osbourne, but that's about it.

I won't lie, I would choose Synyster over Zak anyday. Maybe not in terms of technique, but pinch harmonics, wah, and pentatonic gets really really boring. But I did like this video, moreso in the beginning than the end.

I see where your coming from but for me it just works into that perfectly. I know its purely opinion but it really annoys me the amount of people just saying they hate him and he is crap just because its become cool to hate them. Like everyone now loves Necrophagist for the same reason.

It's mediocre wank.

He attempts to convey some sort of theme and mood in the beginning and then just loses control and goes into "Zakk" mode.

How is his playing modern in any way?

Oh, I can definitely argue the "fact" that he is a good player.

...modes and scales are still useless.

it wasn't bad, but i dislike the genre in general. It started out okay but then he got into the whole "shred" thing which I honestly just find annoying.

I don't think it's cool to hate zakk wylde to be honest i think it's just the opposite

he was much better when he was just another randy rhoads wannabe to be honest now he's little more than some half assed biker imitation who splays his hands across the same old pentatonic licks we've heard from him and millions of others time after time while occasionally mentioning that he knew dime and telling us that we should buy his latest signature whatever.

I despise Zakk Wylde. I really don't know why everything thinks he is so special. He is a competent player don't get me wrong, but he is very boring, generic and overall a wanker. Thats just my opinion.

That's one thing I have a problem with him. The guy covers Randy and Lee tracks all the time when he's on stage with Ozzy. You'd think he'd be able to be a bit more creative with more of his stuff.

I thought from 40 seconds on it was not very accurated, but loved the first bit man. Dont get me wrong, I cant play any of the quick bits at all but am competent at the slower parts. Just think you need a bit more practice.

I would give you a 6 out of 10 for that.

I liked that because it wasn't the exact same bull he plays in every other piece of music he's "written." It was listenable, which is something I rarely can say about Zakk. It was definitely not his element, though. If he wasn't just doing that for the specific purpose of trying to break stereotypes on himself, then it wouldn't've seemed so insincere.
Typically, though, his playing reeks of pinch harmonics and wah and sweats from the lack of variation. I also hate that he rarely uses his pinky when fretting.
