Best Technical Guitaristscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 2
Michael Angelo Batio can smoke Petrucci and Buckethead no problem. And which other guitarist can play two guitars at once without even picking it, and invented the under over technique and can play a guitar upside down. No guitarist in the world can really reach Michael's level of technical proficiency and speed. He is the only guitarist that was able to smoke his teachers at age 12 after two years of playing. Not to mention he has advanced knowledge of music theory and is one of the most versatile players ever.
Technically he's already been voted the fastest guitarist.
This man needed to be in the list! He deserves to be in the top ten lists! Listen to Vanished, Sane, and Soul Burn. The main reason to listen to the great technicality of Meshuggah.
Should be much higher than #22. How is Kirk Hammett higher than him? - Metal_Treasure
Hey, this guy invented djent! Should be much higher than this. - Metal_Treasure
I admit I can't believe that Paul wasn't part of the best list until now. He's amongst the best out there, both in technique and song-writing
Paul is the most technical guitarist in the world. No one can beat him he's a guitar God.
Paul gilbert is the best well he is second to john petrucci but I be damn if he ain't close
#26 Paul? You goota be kidding'.. well any this is by in terms fan voting..
He's very good, but I don't think he's very technical. - zxm
Her riffs and sweep picking is awesome
I agree... The ability that he had to use harmonics make a guitar squeal was amazing.
Just cover some of his song and you will understand!
I think Kirk's ability is very underrated. His solos are very intricate and well structured. I don't think he belongs on this list, but he is extremely talented.
Kirk shouldn't be in the list he is bull paul gilbert is the most technical guitarist in the world
Uhh... Metallica sucks and their music is about as exciting as an enema.
Best and most technical guitarist ever
Well off the radar, up there with the best. Listen to his solo album and Cacophany with Friedman. If ALS hadn't taken his hands, he would be the best ever.
Not technically a virtuoso, but his lack of playing scales at extremely fast speeds is replaced by using his instrument in a way no other guitarist has. He used every noise producing facet of his instrument in a ways that weren't just unique but fit in perfectly with his compositions. His riffs are also unsurpassed by anyone except perhaps Nuno Bettercourt. Listened to Tomo Milicevic and Matt Bellemy who are in the top three. They shouldn't even be listed in the top million. I know guys who sit in their bedroom with higher guitar virtuosity and talent than those two players. The rest on the list can be subjectively argued as amazing guitarists. Kirk Hammetts solos were pretty hacky though. Amazing riffage though. This lists voting should be directed at musicians only, otherwise it's just a popularity contest of what band you like best..
Well I've seen guys that are just as technical as mustaine but no one more technical (ever heard a song called rattlehead? Or maybe this day we fight? ) but in addition to this he also does vocals which I've never seen the other ultra technical guitarists do so I'll pick mustaine. Also I feel it's worth mentioning that I haven't seen anyone surpass him in any level of guitar playing ability (not just technical ability) but there are tons of guys who are as good as him in most or al areas but they don't do vocals. Although I'll admit that I'm biased because megadeth us my favourite band and I don't play guitar so I might be mistaken. But I'm stil going with mustaine.
Is technically much better than kirk
Guthrie Govan at 28... he is quite literally the most technically proficient guitarist on Earth right now. Tosin Abasi has even said 'he is the most complete guitarist on the planet'. He rejected an album recording offer from Steve Vai. Surely that should be enough to at least put him in the top ten.
Guthrie at 18 and '30 seconds from Mars' guitarist at number 1. This is quite possibly the most hilarious list I have EVER seen. Anyone who honestly believes this list needs a serious psychological intervention.
Why is he so low... My guitar teacher has been playing guitar for over 20 years and struggled to ear transcribe the first minute of waves let alone play it... And that's the easy bitV 2 Comments
Kirk hammett is not good technical guitarist a great technical guitarist is Broderick he's not my favorite but in technical view he almost beat anyone Petrucci is another great technical guitarist My favorite guitarist is Mustaine I don't vote for him so stop putting Hammett and Synyster Emo
Chris broderick must be at top 5, just hear
This is about the best technical guitarist not best guitarist, you guys must see chris�' shred or his mozart cover then you can vote and stop voting for dave mustain or kilk hammelt
Desert Storm 1 & 2, Oshamajik, Guti (the finale), Boshe Achi, Arrival, Omanush, Hotasha, Na, Shomoy etc. He's technical cause he followed neoclassical metal guitarists most when he was young. Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai etc. He doesn't care much about rhythm guitar.He mostly cares about lead guitar (solos). - zxm
Believe me tommo milicevic can't play the solo from tornado of souls, hangar 18. And another god guitarist who deserves to be in top 10 is Jimmy page Led zeppelin. His solo in stairway to heaven is regarded as the best solo and the hardest to play along with eddie van halen's solo in eruption.
Way better than almost everyone above jim
How the first metal shredder is so low? - Metal_Treasure
Master of octaves (especially the gothic octave), classical chromatics, and legato techniques. Marty Friedman #2.
