|5 Guys That Play Guitar Better Than You Do|
You'd probably think you're hot sh*t until you see rrthis guy play and rrealise he's not even considered ra lead guitarist.
The Purple one is probably better than you at pretty much everything.
Making love, basketball, dancing, songwriting, singing, wearing heels,
designing symbols to name himself after, chess, you name it. And he isn't
too shy to tell you about it too. But the little man can rip on a guitar. Most
people had forgotten until that performance of "While My Guitar Gently
Weeps", but keep in mind that the dude plays practically all the instruments
on his albums, INCLUDING the guitar solos, and accept his superiority.
Maybe you heard "Your Body is a Wonderland" on the
radio, immediately decided to hate Mayer, switched stations before the
random jazz break in the middle, and wrote Mayer off as a faggy pop-sensation.
Maybe you were lucky enough to have a girlfriend who insisted
you learn to play "Neon" for her and had your mind blown by Mayer's actual
technical skill. Maybe you didn't. Either way, Mayer is probably better than
You probably know this guy as the dude who started singing in Van Halen
right around the time they stopped being cool. I mean, when you're in Van
Halen you don't need to know how to play any instruments, one of the
actual Van Halens will handle it for you. You probably also don't need to
know how to sing (see also: Cherone, Gary). But the guy once played lead
guitar in his own band. And he was pretty good. VH should've hired him for
his guitar-playing ability and not for his singing.
Once again, you probably know that he plays guitar, but you won't realize
how good he is until you try to play something of his and get pissed off
because the f*cker apparently either hasn't heard of the pentatonic scale
or just simply hates the blues. Also, he inspires emo kids. F*cker.
Maybe this is cheating, because everyone knows Hetfield plays guitar.
What no one probably realizes is how good Hetfield is at playing said
guitar. I mean, he's arguably the best guitarist in this little band you may
have heard of called Metallica. No seriously, I think he's better than that
other guy. Doesn't he write all the riffs anyway?
|Yeah, Hetfield is better than Kirk|
Mayer does indeed shred when he feels like it
|Perhaps you should bathe yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka|
|Yeah, I'm a big fan of Mayer's guitar work.|
1 is probably the biggest surprise though to many people.
|Neon is a really good song. Tried to learn to play it once and it kicked my ass completely.|
|the guy from simple plan can actually sweep like a motherfucker|
|i guarantee i can play guitar better than 4|
|Simple Plan? Seriously? This I gotta see. Also, Dave Baksh from Sum 41 is fairly legit, but not nearly as much as these guys.|
|He was too legit for Sum 41|
|That's not saying a whole lot though.|
|2's a fantastic guitar player but good god can he not write anything that isn't painfully gay|
|"2's a fantastic guitar player but good god can he not write anything that isn't painfully gay"|
he's on tim and eric. all gayness is nullified and transferred to you.
|Prince is one of the best guitarists walking the face of the earth.|
Not sure if kidding.
|Most definitely not kidding about Mayer. Dude can flat out play. Berklee pedigree don't lie.|
|Word he's from Berklee?|
|Jeff Buckley fucking rules.|
|Also, John Mayer has some really great material. Most people just dismiss him because of his singles and other not-so-good songs of his.|
Listen to Continuum.
|I think i can play better than 5|
good list tho
