Who do you guys think is the most emotionless guitarist around, the one who may be able to shred at mach 3 and has all his theory down, but has simply no feeling or emotion in his work?

I think it's Kirk Hammett

You're asking for at least three pages of responses saying: "MAB lololol".

Pretty much.

However, speed has nothing to do with emotion, and speed and musicality/flow are not related.

Regardless, as far as speed without musicality (closest term I can think of) goes, I'd say Mark Tremonti. Apparently, he's admitted to just playing scales for the most part when he solos lives.

Don't say Kirk Hammett. Have you heard most guitarists on all the popular bands nowadays? Nothing compared to him.

And although Kerry's solos lack emotion, his riffs are packed with aggression, which completely makes up for it.

In my opinion.

No, I was just giving an example- I meant any guitarist, he may be awesome, or he may not
Not all great guitarists have their theory down as well as some other lesser known guitarists.

No. Just... no.


Haha yeah... Lots of guitarists these days don't play with much emotion. But if I was to say who has lots of emotion when he plays I would say John Frusciante. He's got great solo's that arn't just lots of fast notes.

Quote by Ninjamonkey767
Then Angus Young is the most emotional player ever.

And many people believe that
#22
I would say any guitarist who thinks that you can measure the amount of "feeling" in a solo and that only certain styles of playing contain emotion.
#24
I was thinking of John Petrucci.....just a lot of speed there
But then again, songs like Wishful Thinking are pretty nice, and his work with Dream Theater

Buckethead is totally the most emotionless player.

I mean have you ever watched him play? He always has that pale, expressionless look on his face...


Actually that's because he wears a face mask.


And no, he is not emotionless, I used tot hink that too, but if you listen to songs like Soothsayer, he is pretty emotional.

Every answer here is wrong. The guys from Behold...The Arctopus are the correct answer. Or whoever plays guitar for Brain Drill. That shit sucks hard.
