Alright, this thread has been inspired by the one about the Directors and here we shall discuss our favorite Guitarists and their works, our favorite solos and "Most Underrated." Here is my list, in no particular order: Slash - Guitarist of Guns N Roses and Slash's Snakepit and my most favorite guitarist. A "Blues Metal/Rock" guitarist who's sometimes countrified leads are often melodic as opposed to most metal guitarists who are rythm driven. Favorite Guitar Solo: Sweet Child O'Mine Most Underrated Solo: Breakdown Jeff Beck - The greatest of the most underrated guitarists, Jeff Beck was the second guitarist for the Yardbirds before forming a temporary group with Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Ron Wood and John Paul Jones and Rod Stewart. Most known for his continuously changing guitar sound, his crazy sound effects(Most of which don't include crazy pedals!) and mixing of Jazz, Blues, Hardrock, etc. Favorite Guitar Solo: 'Cause We've Ended As Lovers Most Underrated Solo: Big Block Jimmy Page - Uh... He's the guitarist of Led Zeppelin! What more to say? Favorite Guitar Solo: Tangerine Most Underrated Solo: Thank You(Live from the BBC Sessions) David Gilmour - The guitarist of Pink Floyd, known mostly for his very melodic and "Psychadelic" guitar solos and his very common, melodic guitar riffs. Also the secondary lead singer and then leader of later day Pink Floyd. Favorite Guitar Solo: Mother Most Underrated Solo: Mother! Jimi Hendrix - Well he IS Jimi Hendrix! Responsible for the great, melodic ballad Little Wing and the very hard rocking Voodoo Child(Slight Return). Is mostly known for blending blues and hard rock while rocking harder than most at the time. Favorite Guitar Solo: Little Wing Most Underrated Solo: None! Stevie Ray Vaughan - The greatest blues guitarist ever! He was able to top his legends! Known for playing the guitar behind his back, never playing the same song twice, and using verrrry heavy strings. Also known for copying many Hendrix antics on stage. Favorite Guitar Solo: Tightrope Most Underrated Solo: Leave My Girl Alone(Austin City Limits) Michael Schenker - Guitarist from Germany, originally in Scorpions and then in UFO which, in my opinion, was his greatest band. Known for his very melodic yet very powerful rythm playing. Very similar in style to Eddie Van Halen, Glenn Tipton and Randy Rhoads. Only difference - He's better! Favorite Guitar Solo: Doctor Doctor Most Underrated Solo: All of them! Jerry Cantrell - Guitarist of Alice in Chains. Known mostly for his*Sigh*... ENDLESS ABILITY TO COME UP WITH ROCKIN' RIFFS! He also has these really rockin' guitar solos with such a signature style, he's just amazing! His recent album is Degradation Trip. Oh yeah, and he ROCKS! Favorite Guitar Solo: Sunshine Most Underrated Solo: Dam That River Mike McCready - Guitarist of Pearl Jam. Inspired big time by Hendrix, Zeppelin and Ace Frehley. Favorite Guitar Solo: Animal Most Underrated Solo: Garden Randy Rhoads - Not much to say that hasn't already been said but... This guy is responsible for Crazy Train and Mr. Crowley! Favorite Guitar Solo: Second Mr. Crowley guitar solo Most Underrated Solo: None that I could think of! That's just a few, the rest will be up later.
