Gathering place for NG's audio artists. Discuss recording programs and techniques.

so... what is that having to do with music/recording techniques ?
unless you have a band and Slash and Buckethead want to join ... do they now ?

This is the second topic you've posted that has broke the rules, and you did it directly after the other one.
Congratulations!

Slash isnt even 1/100th of as good Buckethead is. Slash just plays a guitar with a cleaner sound and makes up shitty generic solos.

Buckethead is god

Listen to Soothsayer by him.

He's amazing.

But...

Andy McKee beats everyone

Slash fucks around in minor pentatonic to depict "EMOTION" while Buckethead writes amazing warm, acoustic/electric masterpieces such as the album Electric Tears, or odd metal that sounds incredibly bizzare like the Island of Lost Minds, or stuff that has a strong melody and powerful solos like Nottingham Lace. Both technically and emotionally, Buckethead wins.

Sorry, ramblin' my opinions again about guitarists :P

So yeah, bad thread, etc etc.

Screw both, Petrucci ftw. He can shred fast, make beautiful and original melodies, and add emotion to music. He's the most balanced guitarist out there IMO. Quite technical too.

Vai is better. Petrucci is good, but he's a total wanker. Amazing talent but I think he's overly technical and sometimes wastes his talent.

While he tends to get too technical, his music isn't void of emotion and uses his talent to express feelings better than Vai. Yes, Vai can be less technical and more..."natural", but Petrucci may very well do so.

Point in case, Hollow Years solo at Budokan. Can't get any more emotional AND technical than that.

Granted, I think we can both agree in the end that both guitarists have their own styles and are equally skilled at what they do.

As much as this doesn't belong on this forum... I have to say it...

Slash is the most overrated guitarist of all time. He's simply not that good, buckethead on the otherhand can play just about any genre and play it well... while wearing a bucket on his head. He plays for the music, Slash plays for the money and admits it like the tool he is.

Anyone not familiar with buckethead likes to say he's all speed and no emotion, to which I say, you need to listen to something that isn't "Jordan". Listen to "Too Many Humans" for example, quite possibly one of the most unique and soulful pieces ever. That or "Soothsayer".

That said, I still say Petrucci owns them all, he has a knob on his rack that controls the sun.

I'll probably get banned for posting here.

But being a guitarist, I feel obligated. FORGIVE ME FOR I AM ABOUT TO SIN!

None of the above, Steffen Schackinger and Chris Feener are my two chart toppers to be honest. Vai is up there at three, Satch at four, Paisley at five, and the list goes on.

Steffen has emotion, technicality, tone, and most importantly, style. That's why he tops my list, not to mention he Danish and that's pretty fucking awesome.

May the mods have mercy on our souls

Gran Turismo 5.
That is all.

Malmsteen is an egotistical asshole, that's the only reason I don't rate him very high. Aside from that, he's an amazing shredder.
