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.
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!
He's very good, but I don't think he's very technical. - zxm
Her riffs and sweep picking is awesomeV 1 Comment
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
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.
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 closeV 1 Comment
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
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
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
Master of octaves (especially the gothic octave), classical chromatics, and legato techniques. Marty Friedman #2.
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.
Best and most technical guitarist ever
How the first metal shredder is so low? - Metal_Treasure
He was the GOAT; it's a tragedy he's so low on the list. Not only a technician, but also a soulful intellectual. To quote Guthrie Govan (who I'd place second on this list) "I love Shawn Lane's playing. Unbelievable player, unbelievable mind! That wasn't just a guy who practiced a lot at being fast; he had this huge brain, and this big warm heart and this special music came out of him. He will be missed."
People. This man was the fastest shredder who ever lived at speeds of up to 19 notes per second while doing extremely wide stretches. Satriani, Petrucci, Vai, Paul Gilbert, Michael Angelo Batio, and Guthrie Govan all agree that he was a terrifying and unstoppable guitar player. Look up "how to develop an outside sound" on YouTube and it will show his insane speed.
No one had the TOTAL package like this guy. He had top end speed, pin point accuracy, perfect tone, insane melodic lines and not to mention his unbelievable ability to pick every note while doing insane stretches at high speeds. Just listen to the solo at the end of Get you back.V 1 Comment
