Non Metal Guitarists
 
Don't know if this thread should be posted, but anyway.

Is there any non metal guitarists that you like?
For some reason i love hearing David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) he doesn't shred but he can hit one note and it sounds better than Malmsteen playing 1000.
Also Stevie Ray Vaughn can rip it up big time.

That's really cliché, and utter bullshit. I've heard it a thousand times, each time from a moron that's probably not even heard more than three of Malmsteen's good pieces (not saying this includes you, just it's a phrase heard constantly)

I think the term for 'non metal guitarists' is "heathens" :stoned: (said in jest)

I often think it's rather pretentious when people describe certain guitarists in an over-the-top manner - "amazing, incredible, fantastic" - that sort of cringe-worthy vocabulary that is often applied to guitarists such as Queen's or even the guy from the Beatles. Maybe they did write good music for their time, but as far as musicianship or talent on ye olde six-string goes, they wern't amazing and doubtfully couldn't touch the skill in players like Malmsteen, Jarzombek etc... Another good example would be to discuss guitarists such as Santana: sure they do the trick and have a semi-decent tone, but a lot of other guitarists can do it with more interest and style.

Sorry! :smash:

:stoned:

I agree. I hate hearing people say "well it has so much more feeling and soul!" I don't like anything aside from metal and shred, but I listen to jazz alot with friends just to absorb what's useful, which isn't alot. I am the only metal guitarist in a group of 5-6 friends and I always dominate them because they think that a really strong vibrato is more important than swept arpeggios.

Just shut the fuck up and realize Malmsteen etc. have more talent than alot of soulful blues faggots.

Bang on. Malmsteen himself can play one note that rivals a run of 16 notes by himself (and that's a realistic figure, as oppose to 'thousands').

Malmsteen's song 'Blue' is a clear example to destroy people who are stuck up their arse in the imaginary rut that 'shredders can't play'. Malmsteen etc deliver versatility - If you disgaree that he can't play, check out his covers for a start, from Abba to Hendrix, then check out his various platforms, songs such as "Amberdawn", and the ever popular "Black Star" he made aged seventeen. I'm not saying he's the best guitarist, just defending him from uncultured pretentious acclaimed 'jazz lovers'; the people who spend four years doing a music course and think they're better musicians because they can sight read. (maybe I shot myself in the foot there, but again, Malmsteen can do all of that and the chords too, same goes for Jarzombek) :stoned:

Plus with malmsteens unique tone, he can hit one note that emotes more than an average band can say with an entire album.

Here's to the downfall of the 'Soulful Blues faggots' if they can accept reality :beer:

Once again the idiocy of the average metalhead is going to ruin a perfectly good thread.

As far as non-metal guitarists, there's Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Vai, Satriani, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler... fuck there are a ton that I listen to...

Robbie Filth 2006-06-22 14:13

There are lots of good non metal guitarists. Too many to mention, the best ones have really already been mentioned so i wont bother going on.

So what youre saying is if you can't alternate pick, sweep, shred, do extreme tapping and stuff at super high speeds you suck really bad and it doesn't matter if you have any emotion because you still suck without speed? FUCK YOU.

If you'd have done a search you would find that all threads that start with this question turn into a huge argument.
