i'd say you put the wrong people in the poll.

i'd also say that there is only one "KING" of metal

For poll purposes, I put Azagthoth, the guy's fucking awesome...

Laiho is probably better, but I like Trey a hell of a lot more.

Doesnt matter if you're having a poll for "who's the jazz guitar god" or "whos the pop rock guitar god"... INORDER to be a guitar god, you first, must be, a guitar's slave.

I think that'd also apply for 'the best'. No - maybe not, oh well.

I haven't heard of O'Brian or Owens, & I did leave out Freidman, but mainly this
was about lead. How could I have forgot Freidman. His lead is some of the hardest to play, diminished & arpeigioes...

I would go with the guitarist from Morbid Angel, awesome.......
I also like Jeff Hanneman, but Kerry King's solos suck ass!!!!
Also the guitarists from Meshuggah and Opeth because they have a
unique way of playing and they have awesome solo's..........
The guitarists from Meshuggah are so technical with guitars....
On the song "Future Breed Machine" that beeping noise was from the guitar!!!!!

I think he is talking about Dave Murray from Iron Maiden...there could be a Dave Murry somewhere else but i'm pretty sure he meant Dave Marray.

dimebag isn't all that great compared to alot of other guys.

for rythms: jeff and kerry from slayer. They make great shit up, but kerry's solo's suck ass.

For lead: mr. micheal ammott. Come on now.

because satriani is shred, not metal. I do think you should have put yngwie though, he was always the most metal of the shredders.

yngwie is just plain boring....i listen to one of his songs and realize in about 45 seconds that i haven't been paying attention. But if i was listening to Becker or Gilbert or Laiho or most other metal players i am attentive through out the whole song...

I think Yngwie has some stuff that is definitely very metal - true, there is a lot of classical, but the metal aspect is still there. I do agree with metal=life - my mind starts wandering after listening to Yngwie for a little while, unless it's been a long time since I've listened to the album. On the other hand, I can listen to Laiho on CoB's Follow the Reaper over and over - awesome stuff!

Dime is really good with his tone and the weird noises and squeals he can get out of a guitar. He can also play some really fast shit. Dimebag is definitely a kick-ass guitarist but I think that he's just been in the business for too long. Everyone knows who he is and wants to hear something different.

eh, i think he's still got alot of years on him, in pantera or not. But i think people who just started playing guitar or aren't that great at it overate him to much. I remember when i first started i went to try and learn a pantera tab and thought it was hard like shit and thought "he must be a god or something" so i overrated him. But after playing for a while, its not all that hard to do stuff like he does.

Where oh where is Alexi Laiho, for me he is THE best metal guitarist, he has a style I dont think anyone can match at the moment, including the shredders. And Alexi is definately NOT overrated, though Dimebag is sometimes I agree.

I think Yngwie, Eddie, and Steve Vai are better technicaly, but I was wanting
to know which of these did more for you in the metal vien of playing. And I
probaly should have included Friedman. I'm thinking in terms of lead. I haven't
herd any C.O.B., except somthing on there site, which wasn't enough to know any
about his style. I'm not much for keyboards.

Lead from Arch Enemy is Chris and Micheal Amott. They are awesome, but I'll have to go with Laiho for the best metal guitarist.

John Petrucci, i think, would have to be the best all around guitarist.

Schuldiner, Azagthoth, Jack Owen, Pat O'brien or BRian, and lots of
others are one of the best Metal guitarists.

Where is Azagthoth from?

Jon schaffer lead guitarist of iced earth, ive never heard another band be able to write rythems like him, crazy tripplet quadruplets and shit, his rythems are awesome just listen to dantes inferno or coming curse, and then definently alexi laiho is up there, hes badass, the solo melodies he plays along with keyboard... insane.

I saw Metallica live with Godsmack on thursday. It was an awesome concert but Kirk Hammet's solo's werent that great. His clean solo's were pretty good and stuff but his distorted solo's were covered up with wah so basically he was just making noise. I think hes a bit overrated in terms of skill but he can write some pretty awesome guitar parts.

Culto from Dark Throne. hahahahahaha joking

Gene Palubecki and Bill Taylor from Angel Corpse are the ones that make the best combination of brutality and lead for me.

You speak out of your ass, and missed the point.

Vai is god, but not metal.

Kirk's best work is on ...And Justice For All - his solo in Dyer's Eve is one of my favourite solos and never ceases to amaze me. There's a lot of good guitar work from him on that album (and also on RTL and MOP) but everything after that is very derivative and uninspiring. I prefer Marty Friedman - he's better technically and his solos seem to be more fluid than Kirk's.

Hammet is WAYYY overrated. Mustaine's solos kick ass too- Hangar 18, Five Magics, Mechanix. That's a good example why MEGADETH KICKS METALLICA'S ASS. Mechanix vs. The Four Horsemen, PLEASE.

hammet is good, better than i am but most of his solos are very similar, and he never sounds like hes pushing himself. but, he did make some of my favorite all time solos (Damage Inc., NEM, Master of Puppets)
