they are certainly of not my day. they are the 80's and 90's guitarists.
when you say our day it would be people like john mayer, mick thompson, and other guitarists that are big in the 21st century

honestly, this is one of the hardest things to figure out...
its been like
60's - Jimi Hendrix
70's - Jimmy Page
80's - Eddie Van Halen
90's - Dimebag Darrell
thats what the mainstream says, i dont really listen to much pre 80's stuff anymore, so i dont know about those

synyster gates is like the only one who qualifies for our time...
and there are a whole lot more...
i think John Petrucci should be up there...

I guess I'm kind of like a hippie. I'm anti-war, do drugs, and like communism.
Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

Erm, Synyster Gates? Seriously, there are a lot of better guitarists out there than him.

dude, synyster gates? he's "pretty cool," i will give you that. some of his melodies are creative.

but since you so shamelessly mention his name with vai, hendrix, slash, and whatnot, i cast my vote for michael or chris amott!

Avenged sevenfold is my favorite band, and i can even say there are alot better guitarists out there then syn gates for our time period. Skill wise, i think Herman li and Sam Totman should be up there, because, i saw them at mayhem and they had their act together.
Poop.


Yes, poop.

There are a couple people on your poll I really do question. Not by talent, but by your poll saying, "Of our day?"
Someone said above, they are all from different eras. How is that of "Our day?" It doesn't matter how old you are, when you put those choices up there together, it makes you look lame dude.
Of "my" day I would say Slash, or Zakk Wylde. But honestly, there are a lot more great guitarists out there besides those 2, or the others on your list, so I wont vote one way or the other.
Rethink your poll if you want a respectable thread/poll.
