Why is he higher in the best metal guitarists (all time), vs the best modern medal guitarists? :? Also, look at the panic attack solo people.
John Petrucci is the smartest guitar player. His music is so virtuosic none of these other guys would be able to play it.
And synyster gates? He's more like a pop guitarist. Boring music... Nothing compared to dream theater riffs.
No one on this list can touch the level of musical virtuosity of John Petrucci. Period.
Yeah, I know, his riffs often only contain two notes, but in other songs he shows definite musical ability.
While his soloing often needs improvement, he knows what he's doing with the main riffs.
While his riffs are generally easy at this point, they are still great and define the band. He has also become great at solos.
Never saw anyone playing live, using the feed-back of the guitar on the sound-system, in order to get a completly new scales!
He's at the bottum because, while he isn't metal, he definitely could be, based on songs like Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome, and Shrinking Universe. Therefore, he could definitely be a great metal guitarist.
Robb flynn knows how to do shredding guitar solos and groove metal rhythms. It is so clean!
