|Favorite Guitar Teams|
Teams gives me more freedom than guitar duos, cause the more the merrier. A self-explanatory list, the order has no consequence, unless otherwise stated.
This had to be on here, just absolutely amazing, Becker and Friedman just complement each other so nicely, a standard pick that deserves to be #1.
Created the dual guitar attack, and had some absolutely epic moments, just listen to Electric Eye/ The Hellion, just so amazing. Or really any Priest song, many of them highlight the team of Tipton and Downing.
Love them or hate them, they have made a name for themselves with fun dual guitar wankery. It is hard to imagine them without the twin attack of Li and Totam.
Another legendary guitar duo/ trio, depending on the album. Maiden is a band known for the dual and triple guitar parts that have defined their sound. Side note: letting Gers stay in the band was a class act.
Another shred-rock act, Racer X has only 1 "big name" guitarist in Paul Gilbert, but he and Bruce (can't remember how to spell his last name) have some absolutely dual guitar work.
Misha Mansoor, Jake Bowen, and Mark Holcomb provide the guitars for modern metal titans Periphery. With some insane down-tuning, Periphery's guitarists go against Mustaine's accusation of people down-tuning and having no skill.
Speaking of Dave Mustaine, he and Marty Friedman form the widely considered best Megadeth guitar team, and I can't disagree. Great albums (except Risk), and just killer riffs and solos, the two form an indomitable guitar duo.
A newer release, but the guitar work in all of their albums is just astonishing.
Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson are one of the greatest guitar duos in thrash history. So much raw energy directed through epic music, absolutely amazing.
It had Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck. Need I say more?
