Guitarist With The Most Feelingcopkiller
The Contenders: Page 2
Santana once again... and where is Guthrie Govan? He is god at guitar! Yeah GOD!
Oh please... There is no other guitarist with so much feel... Just listen to Glasgow kiss and you'll know... The entire song is a solo full of feel... He maybe the only one who combines speed with emotion... The arpeggios aren't "just arpeggios"... They are emotions from his head into the music man and flowing out through his mark V... Exceptional tone as well... BEAT THAT!
BUT... Only next to Gilmour hands down...
Hollow Years live at Budokan... Check out the solo! Petrucci's finest performance in my humble opinion
Feel the non-afraid spirit, bravery heart with:
Highway to hell, back in black, TNT, Thunderstruck, Hells Bells, if you want blood (you've got it)
& the rock n' roll domination with:
For those about to rock, let there be rock, whole lotta rosie, rock n' roll train, it's a long way to the top - shatti
Always with emotional feeling, raw power... And speed
Just give a listen to "Beyond the Realms of Death" by Judas Priest (the first solo). - Metal_Treasure
Eric tried to recruit him, pioneered a genre of music, session player for the greats. His slide work is untouchable (Derek Trucks comes close though, why isn't Derek on here? )
Rory Gallagher must be in this list (actually by far on the top). If you never listened to him carefully. Give it a try and probably you will redefine what is feeling and expression from a musicians perspective...
He uses such a wide a array of scales and modes in an unbelievable way! Just listen to the solos in Valley of Souls, Coloreas Mi Vida and Lovesorrow. Plus, he can also play very different styles of music, with the thrash metal solo in Tornado of Souls.
Just listen with his 2-3 notes every one can understand that this is Marty! That's the best thing about him... Please listen : Brightest star of all, Melodic control ending solo, Namida, Or black cat by him
For the love of God is the most gut felt emotional pieces ever written. Vai is heaven on earth.
I Think he is the best for Whispering a prayer and for the love of God. Awesome music...
Do you see the expression of Vai's face when he plays? Stop underrating him so much!
Just listen to whispering a prayer and try not to get goosebumps!
Crying is a masterpiece enough said go feel it.
"Black Star" has everything I need! - Metal_Treasure
He's good, but has no feel. Playing one million notes a second is not called a good solo. Not saying playing fast is bad, I mean Mr. Crowley is my favorite, but it has some feel - SoldierOfFortune
He has the top three spots in the "guitar solos with the most feeling" list on this website. Enough said.V 1 Comment
Come on, how did John Sykes not make the list? Have a listen and decide for yourself. :-)
He defines what "feel" is for me. Classic Alice in Chains songs like Nutshell, Rain When I Die and Love, Hate, Love sound like his soul screaming through his guitar. Even his solo material is incredible just listen to My Song, Spiderbite and Anger Rising. Massively overlooked when it comes to the greatest guitar players.
Feeling + Technique = I rest my case.
