Personally, I think the lost prophets have good guitarists. I also like tom morello, tim mahoney, john frusciante, adam jones, and billy howerdel.

"Not technical" is a bit of an understatement.

I don't respect catchiness, either.

If you like the band, just say so. Don't try to defend the guitarists, they simply fold.

On the other hand theres Paul Gilbert who just rules! :thumb:

I don't think writing "catchy riffs" makes you a respectable guitarist. At best, you're creating a harmony for the vocalist. At the worst? You just suck.

John Petrucci of Dream Theater. Amazing riffs and amazing leads.
John Frusciante of RHCP. One of the most soulful guitarists out there.
Joe Satriani. Just a god.
Michael Romeo of Symphony X. I hate his EQ, but he's definitely worthy of respect.
Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth. Amazing what he does with harmony. Him and Peter Lindgren both.

Just because you think they "suck", it doesn't give you the right to tell people what to do.

I like Lostprophets. A guitar tab doesn't really tell you much besides what chords are played. The songs are very good to listen to.

Wow, thanks for pointing that out.

How can someone not think Lost Prophets guitarists are respectable?

I mean, everyone has been so focused on legato, tremolo picking, and general musicality these days, everyone has forgetten the true skill it takes to play a precision three note arpeggio (with one open string) before making that difficult finger position change into an exciting chorus of two power chords (one of them being open).

It doesn't matter if it makes for a great listen. If you like them, then you like them, and thats your problem. We're talking about the GUITARISTS.

Their innovation sucks. Their writing sucks. They can play their songs fine, but that isn't saying much.

God...a Lost Prophets tab looks like binary code.

That is serously sad if your truely belive that. You should seriously try listening to the music rather than just writeing it off as "showing off". Listen to "For the Love of God" I like to see someone try to play with that much talent or feeling.

Oh as far as talented modern guitarist go listen to Mike McCready, not the most technicaly adavnced but he's got alot of feeling in the way he plays, especialy live.

well i don't think they suck i'm sure their songs give me enough evidence to conclued beyond a reasonable doubt that they do indeed suck. so therefore it does give me a right to tell people what to do.

also it isn't difficult to play 1 finger powerchords while complaing about how ****ty your girlfriend is.

FtLOG is the song every Vai fanboy points out when they want to talk about how emotional he is. He's done much better work like Blue Powder, I think. That song is just 7 minutes of the most boring slow tempo wank I have ever heard.

Jesper Stromblad (although he seems to keep his best riffs for his side project nowadays :angry: )

Tom Morello

John Frusciante

EVH (hey... he's on tour again. That counts, doesn't it?)


And for the record, I find Petrucci overrated. He plays faster than just about any other human being, but I find his stuff so bland and flavourless... It's like he's a scale machine, and forgot that songs have to have emotion. I have the album "When Dream and Day Unite" and almost nothing sounds like he put any feeling into it.

You can't "put" feeling into your playing, you can't just say - "I will play the 1st solo with emotion, and 2nd without emotion. Shut up with emotion already.

Yes you can. Well, ok, maybe you can't, but some guitarists can.

You think it's impossible to play with emotion? Go smell some Red Hot Chili Peppers, and then compare and contrast with some Malmsteen. Either Petrucci has no emotion or no talent, because he plays stuff hella fast and it's not nearly as entertaining as a lot of slower, much less technical stuff. I'm going with option A, because it takes talent and years of training to play that fast.

I think he was just saying that emotion flows naturally into a song, an artist doesnt push it out on "command".

Thats just my 2 cents....

Here's my list of guys in the mainstream (platinum albums, MTV, etc.) who are respectable guitarists...
-Tom Morello (still being his old self from RATM)
-Dave Grohl (he's not amazingly skilled but he's fast as hell and writes catchy stuff)
-Zakk Wylde
-Lenny Kravitz
-Jerry Cantrell (not as famous as he was with AIC but he's still an awesome guitarist)
-Kirk Hammett (St. Anger sucked, besides that he's still decent, just not as good as he used to be)
-Carlos Santana
-Adam Jones
-Billy Howerdel
-Slash (don't forget Velvet Revolver)
-Buckethead

...these are off the top of my head, but I'm surprised that no one mentioned Santana, Lenny Kravitz or Jerry Cantrell...

Holy cow you couldn't have asked a worse question in this forum.

1. People's perception of labelling somebody "respectable" is so highly skewed in this forum you will never get a straight answer worth refining your own opinion over
2. If there is something intelligent to read, it's not worth shifting through the amount of bull**** that isn't
3. Give somebody a parameter for "respectable" (like not mainstream guitarists, huge restriction) so that if they wanted to post something unintelligible they couldn't, or it would be against the rules and so uncool.


Good question for a normal forum, but you will only get string-humping midgets underwear all up in a bundle for no reason by posting here. I read the first page only and could see that that was going to happen. And I was right.

7 liter V6 castrol thingamajuggy
Plush suede pimp daddy seats

adjustive heat zones

And then the guy goes, "Hey salesman, I have no ****ing clue why any of this is even necassary."

To which the salesman goes - "Because you know these things are impressive, durrrr!"

As to my highly respected opinion, I respect those who are conscious of their surroundings. People who could actually tell you why the Native American down the street wears a shirt that says "Indians: Fighting Terrorism Since 1492." People who don't glorify what is good in all the wrong context, which reminds me that I hate most of all the people that write our ****ing history books. The type of guy who accepts music as his karma and does not change this karma just so he could build a following based on false concepts. The people who fall under this category are few and far between, but the main one that comes to mind, and somebody who I have met personally, is Tim Reynolds. This is a guy who really could give eight ****s what people think about his music. And if you have any inkling of a thought of, "I like this guy only because he's a 'rebel'" you're a dick. Stereotyping people as a rebel is stupid in the first place, and heres where some satire kicks in.

If Tim was a rebel, and I liked him because he was a rebel, that would mean I'm really smart or I'm really stupid. If I'm really smart, I like this man because I really understand where he's coming from. If I'm really stupid, I like this man because I like to "**** the giant." Now, if I was somebody who was able to recognize these two things, wouldn't that lead you to beleive that I was smart enough in the first place to be able to like a man who spoke like Ghandi to me?

first dude,you must understand the fact that a lot of people out there dont know about guitar,or any instrument they arent playing.not to say there's still people who doesnt know shred music.and also did it ever occour to you that people buy the music as a fad or just simple listening,not bothering about the quality of the music?

if you belive that one people can do tours are good and all.britney must be the mozart of our time then.then what about guitarists like paco or meola?i'd like to hear your comments on them.

if you are a musician you take the good from all music

you as a musicain must at least understand talented guitarists instead of defending some heavily overrated band.and to add to your comment i doubt you would listen to jazz,classical and you would consider them as boring music.

lastly you people must understand the diffrence between a fav.guitarist and a respectable guitarist.

respectable guitarists;
jason becker,JP,vai,satriani,paul gilbert,mustaine,fieldman,malmsteem,paco de lucia,al di meola,david gilmour...............

yes, you have a point, HOWEVER...do you ever watch those reality shows where they make the contestants eat weird ****? MOST (90%) of the **** they make the contestants eat is a delicacy or normal food in some region of the world.

Lets take eating african cave dwelling spiders. To us (or most westerners i guess), this is an experience to avoid, almost the same as eating dog****. But if we were in a culture where eating these spiders was commonplace, we would also eat these spiders. Why? We may develop a taste for the spiders, but moreover, because thats what everybody else is eating. If these spiders were commonplace and one of the few major food sources around, i wouldn't be using them as an example.

Turn to today's radio situation. Clear Channel owns most of the radio stations today. THEY DO. If one company owns most (99%) of the radio stations, they control everything the radio-listening public hears. And lets face it, the radio listening public is a large percent of Americans. So if everybody else is listening to the music, you will be too.

If these radio stations are the publics only influx of new bands, clear channel can pretty much control what the public is listening to. So if everybody is listening to it, everybody will think it is socially acceptable to like this band/act. Clear Channel can make people like music, because thats all they can listen to. You can change the channel, but thats only the genre of music that clear channel is controlling.

Please, this is America, don't think you have a choice in what you listen to </sarcasm>

vai had to write pieces for his music theory teacher on a daily bassis before Satch started to teach him, that said it doesn't mean that Vai was overly good at guitar when Satch started to teach him, Vai himself has said that he didn't know how to apply his ideas onto his guitar and that Satch taught him how to do that

"Vai became interested in the guitar via such legendary artists as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Alice Cooper as a teenager, and upon starting high school, took lessons with an older player from his high school, Joe Satriani. Playing in several local bands, Vai quickly picked up on the instrument, and by the age of 18 was attending the renowned Berklee School of Music in Boston. As a student there, Vai transcribed several of Frank Zappa's most technically demanding compositions for guitar, and even sent a copy of one such transcription, "Black Page," to Zappa himself."



that is from his official biography, now why would he have a music theory teacher if he started playing with satch before attending music school? according to his official biography, satch was his first ever teacher.

Jack White actually is a good guitarist, Im guessing you've only heard their singles.

My picks for great modern guitarists are;

Tom Morello (Audioslave): He's very innovative and writes killer riffs

Omar Rodriquez Lopez (Mars Volta): He's also very innovative, and a great improviser.

John Mayer (John Mayer Trio): He's a really awesome blue guitar player.

That's all I got for now!

Not much. Music was so awesome today.

We did interval construction (:rolleyes: ) and the teacher was like "alright I'll write eight up on the board and when you do them you can go. The people that are new to theory can do them in an easy key (G major), and the others can do a harder key (E major :rolleyes: )" so she would write one up and she'd be like "major third" then underneath she'd start writing the next one and it would be like "perfect fifth" and at "perfect fi" I'd already done the first two, haha.

So then I was allowed to go (about 15 minutes left) and I went to get a coffee and I came back and these girls were like "we're done. Can we go too?" and I was like "come on Mrs Simpson, let 'em go. You let me go" and she was like "nah, that's called favouritism!" - I swear my head was so swollen.

Then at the end of the lesson I was chilling with her (I talk to her for a few minutes before/during/after class) and we were talking about species counterpoint and stuff. I was like "so, you'll be teaching us species counterpoint next week yeah?".. laughter ensued.

Not much. Music was so awesome today.

We did interval construction (:rolleyes: ) and the teacher was like "alright I'll write eight up on the board and when you do them you can go. The people that are new to theory can do them in an easy key (G major), and the others can do a harder key (E major :rolleyes: )" so she would write one up and she'd be like "major third" then underneath she'd start writing the next one and it would be like "perfect fifth" and at "perfect fi" I'd already done the first two, haha.

So then I was allowed to go (about 15 minutes left) and I went to get a coffee and I came back and these girls were like "we're done. Can we go too?" and I was like "come on Mrs Simpson, let 'em go. You let me go" and she was like "nah, that's called favouritism!" - I swear my head was so swollen.

Then at the end of the lesson I was chilling with her (I talk to her for a few minutes before/during/after class)

Aww, I swear this was leading to an advert for a pr0n site :(

Anyway, almost all guitarists are respectable, as they (the ones mentioned in this thread) have greater technical and compositional skill than me.

This reminds me of walking with the dinosaurs.

Or riding one of the comets that struck the earth in its first thousand years.
