Well said. I do like different things about different guitarists. My top 2 still stand though. And then a big tie for third.This is so unfair. I like little things that different guitarists do.
I like the raw, raucous, thrown-together vibe of Jimi Hendrix but I also like the precision of Vai and Paul Gilbert.
I like the simplicity and melody of John Fruciante, I like the disembodied sounds of Ler from Primus.
I like the emotion in the notes of SRV, I like the creativity of Tom Morrello.
The list can go on, I don't have time for all of that, and I bet I could write an equally long list of what I can't stand about these very same artists.
Man such a tough one but gun to my head..Petrucci
