Yes I realize Ronnie was not a guitarist to speak of, but he did play. He was every metal guitarists ideal vocalist. He will be missed.

Slash is no Hendrix, Stevie Ray or Santana but he's no Jimmy Page either, who is a truly lousy guitarist. Page is a hell of a song writer but he can't play guitar to save his life.

The only real guitar players out there are those that 'move the listeners emotions via 'talking thru the guitar.. and of course the average quite good player I suppose.
Slash is good, but certainly very over-rated, just like Clapton is over-rated.. or those show off Americans who yes! are very good.. but just don't hit the note.. except Eddie Van Halen 'did' come through with great talent in the end.

My faves are Dave Gilmour, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Kossoff, Rory Gallagher & yeah.. there's many others of course.
Slash is allright.. but he doesn't do it for me in a big way. I'm hoping when I go to see Roger Waters perform The Wall at the London 02 Arena.. Gilmour will turn up & play. Can't wait! After watching some youtube vids of The Wall.. the guitarist is actually very good.. hitting it note for note.. tho' doesn't have that 'twangpingg' Gilmour signature. Saw Eric Clapton with Roger Waters at Earls Court in London.. & I couldn't believe how fucking shit he was. I was itching for Roger to sack Eric on stage & ask one of us in the audience can we do any better.. lol. It was just.. embarressing!!

Its not how you play, its how you write.

Slash was great at taking Izzy's country riffs and turning them into rock HITS. His leads fit his rhythms well.

then the heroine kicked in....

A guitar player is judge by one of 8 different things.

Ability to play
Ability to write
Ability to shred
Ability to play rhythm
Ability to play while they sing
Showmanship
Ability to stay sober :)

beyond that this thread is fucking stupid because Slash is a technically decent guitarist who fit the bill perfectly for G-n-R, imagine if they had Holdsworth or Segovia as their lead player? it would have sucked.

OP has no clue what music is, what guitar playing is. Its not how fucking fast you can play or how many parts you can play at once or if you use a synthaxe or if you can fingertap or fingerpick or even butfuck!

It's about interpreting the music and playing the notes that enhance the song, and Slash did a fine job at that.

OP is a stupid trolling not sneaky who thinks that because he works for a british psycological association abusing people on GLP he is allowed to say thoughtless and unkind things about musicians.

Hey OP, FUCK YOU YA DUMB ASSHOLE!

Re: SLASH is not a good guitar player --->Discussion of the musically inclined only, no n00bs
This thread begs the question of "What is a good guitar player...these days?" One definition is that a good one can play "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" like real fast. Who gives a shit? Technical proficiency just don't mean that much.

Another definition is that they can mimic other guitar players like Filipinos, as they can surely mimic like no other ethnicity over here in Asia. But that's totally regurgitive. I call them MP3 specialists.

The bottom line is... do they connect with the audience? Who cares if the audience is braindead and wouldn't know a superior guitar player if he rose up from The Dead and sledgehammered him right across his "American Idol" worshiping ass? It don't matter. A good guitar player ain't one that leaves the audience saying "I really hate his shit and his style, but he plays well", but one that leaves them saying "Wullike, fersure, like ____ is awesome, like totally, like I mean like, he like just blows me away with like..the stuff he plays...'nd shit." Even if he can't find the fretboard with either hand.

Re: SLASH is not a good guitar player --->Discussion of the musically inclined only, no n00bs
Slash is one of a kind, his thing is the basic blues scale, he has a lot of chromatic tricks, which make it sound kind of slippery. I will tell you this, no one has his sound, his tone, he made his own style, much like the greats do. While you might think he sucks, he belongs with the greats.

WTF op, your recorder? You sure as shit don't sound like you know music.

Omar from mars isn't even near slashes level, if Omar is so good why did frushcanti (sp) play abunch of solos on a few mars records? I like MV, a ton, but I think Omar would admit he isn't a guitar god, he's into the writing end more than becoming a guitar god.

Clapton, dime, Hendrix, EVH (he single handedly shaped 80's) zakk wylde, Rhodes, slash, Jeff beck, jimmy page, iommi, are all guitar gods. The reason is they all have thier own sound, style, tone. You hear these guys on and you can't say "oh, Zakk sounds like robin trower, or John sykes". Well zakk might have a bit of both those guys, he still sounds like zakk. (this won't make sense unless you play guitar)


There are more but I can't think of them off top my head.

And yes I do think slash has given up on life due to his being a record company pawn by playing with fergie.

The prob with mainstream music is the record companies, there are good bands out there, just not a lot that will do what they want.
