I am not one for "virtuoso's" -- I mean, I like Vai and Satch and Morse and all of those guys and I always marveled at their fast fingers... but I am more into guys who wrote great songs or played great solos and performed in bands I loved. Off the top of my head (the first names that "pop" )

Michael Schenker ("Rock Bottom" -- live -- still the greatest electric solo I ever heard in person...)
Neal Schon
Johnny Greenwood
Mick Ronson
Brian May
John Frusciante - every CP album with him is incredible, every one without him, bleh... not a Navaro fan AT ALL.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd (he makes my list simply for the song "Blue on Black")

Oh yea, and of course Lindsay Buckingham and David Gilmore *duh*

Some guys unmentioned:

BB King
Robert Johnson

From the 80s:

Lloyd Cole (incredibly underrated)
Steve Stevens
Charlie Sexton
Robert Quine
Matthew Sweet

And Jack White may not be a technical virtuoso but, if I were a guitar, I would want him playing me.

Yes, that sounds very gay. I don't care. JW rules!

All these are guys, but what about the best female shredder... ever? Let me introduce you to Orianthi. This bitch ROCKS!

I went to the Alice Cooper concert at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma last Friday, and she was his lead guitar! Total surprise to me, and seeing as I am enamored with rocker chicks, I thought it was awesome! If you do a little research, this chick is a big-time up and comer. She's even been featured on American Idol in the bands backing up the singers. And she's as hot as her guitar... Who says chicks can't play?

Blue Thinder: I'm jealous you went to the Alice show at the EQ. I was all set to buy a ticket and circumstances led to me not being able to attend. :(

Orianthi was a guitarist for Michael Jackson's last concert series, she can definitely shred. Don't know what she is for composing, but she's super talented

Thinder? lol... But yeah, it was actually WAY better than I was expecting. I didn't expect Alice to sound as good as he did. At what, 65? He sang great, and the sound was great! Everything was perfectly balanced, with no voice or instrument too loud or too soft. Throbbing, clean bass. Was a very fun night in a great, intimate venue. There was a good 20-25 mins segment starting with "Welcome to my Nightmare" that was almost like you were watching a rock play, with a couple chicks that were just there for acting. Then we got to see Cooper's head chopped off in a big 'ol guillotine. Then there was the massive 15 foot high Frankenstein dancing around on the stage that looked surprisingly natural in its movements! Way cool! hahaha The encore, which was of course "School's out" was off the charts awesome! And the play of Orianthi was the frosting on the cake! Her stage presence was just awesome! So yeah, you should be jealous! :D You missed a good one!

Howzit Rott? You and I use to talk music at the PI (Chuckwow over there). I think you're going to like .net. Hella lot of posters and a few good ones too.

Adrian Belew, another Frank disciple (and King Crimson), deserves mention in this thread. Steve Howe (Yes) and Steve Hackett (Genesis) are both grossly underrated as well.

'Sup, brutha?

Nice seein' you again. Been awhile.

Yeah, lookin' to have some fun here with what appears to be a far less PC-crowd than that heap in charge of "the blue". Up theirs.

Our bro C.dub from hence has supposedly jumped into the fire here, too.

I like this format. I'm very familiar with BBCode.

Steve Stevens


There's a name which doesn't get mentioned nearly enough with the virtuosos.

Guy is an absolute sleight of hand with the axe. And if the Billy Idol songs from the 80s don't convince you, check out his '89 solo LP Atomic Playboys (in particular, the title track, and the song Slipping Into Fiction — YouTube them), and his slinging on Vince Neil's 1993 solo LP.

Stevens is David Blaine on the guitar.

Truth. Nobody can pull of that drudging, forboding, go to hell sound like Cantrell, then he switches it up with some awesome acoustic stuff.

The Mars Volta dude is pretty legit. Their music as a whole has kind of gone off the deep end of listenability to me. I respect the out there experimentation, but that doesn't mean I have to like listening to it.

Eric Clapton, well, he's just awesome.

I used to listen to SRV in college while drunk on whiskey and playing Madden. So, he has a soft spot in my heart.

Tony Iommi can and does and has for 45 years. He basically invented the "drudging, forboding, go to hell sound". Black Sabbath guitarist in case you don't know who Iommi is. And if you aren't aware of what he can do acoustically, find the song "Laguna Sunrise" on youtube (from the Sabbath album Vol. 4).

Really? We are on a favorite guitarist thread and you act like I don't know Iommi because I extoll the guitar sound of Cantrell? I am utterly positive Cantrell would list Iommi as a main influence. My description does fit Iommi as well. I'd venture to say he has a bit more pep than Cantrell though. Give Cantrell's Degradation Trip album a listen sometime.

I responded the way I did because when you said "Nobody can pull of that drudging, forboding, go to hell sound like Cantrell" I thought perhapos you didn't know Iommi because I have no idea your age. Thought I would point out where Jerry VERY likely got that approach which you acknowledged and agreed with in the post I'm quoting here.

Oh, and Btw I have Degradation Trip (very good album) and saw that tour at Bumbershoot in what, '02 or was it '03?. First time he had William as his singer I believe. Figured right then and there he'd reform AIC with William in place of Layne. And I think William does a pretty damned good job considering the circumstances.

Check out Omar Rodriguez Lopez's (the lead guitarist) solo stuff if you want TMV minus the spastic caterwauling.
