id say... Billy joe armstrong from greenday! no im just kidding laugh.gif

seriously, my fave guitarist is John petrucci, he has an amazing precision and play every song very clean live!


+20

When another guitarist can write songs like this, master every style, shred at 220 BPM 16th notes, do a whole show with 0 mistakes, create super soulful solos, improvise 30 minute songs, write and play a song with 123 (literally) time signature changes and make 0 mistakes and still make it an awesome song, write super awesome riffs, and write very meaningful lyrics, I may reconsider John Petrucci being the greatest ever by unlimited miles.

EDIT: Also never seen a keyboardist on par with Jordan Rudess and Mike Portnoy and John Myung are prospects for greatest drummer/bassist as well. What more does one need in a band?

Yea lol like I said in another thread, I don't think John Myung has ever lifted his eyes from the bass during a DT show, but thats ok, I don't think making a crazy wild show is what they are out to do.

Never understood the appeal behind Eddie Van Halen, saw him live a month ago and still couldn't understand why people think he is so great. He uses the whammy bar too much and can tap simple licks, the only style he knows is rock.


I think it's because he started a revolution, showing the tapping technique to the big audience.
Also, he is a big reference for the hard-rock sound.
Don't limit yourself just analizying all the guitar players every time!! smile.gif
Remember that for most people - especially non musicians - the most important thing it's the MUSIC.
Some songs like Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love or Jump are evergreens now.
And I think every guitar player/musician would like to have written these songs (for royalties reasons also biggrin.gif )

Yea but what about Les Paul, Leo Fender, and Dick Dale, who pretty much popularized the electric guitar itself, you never see people mentioning them. For some reason I just really love DT, I don't analyze things that much, I just really really really like their music like you said.

Well you can see my inspirations in sig, But I can't stress enough How much bigger these three guys are to me than the other 6 in the sig:

Marty Friedman
Jason Becker
and
Eddie Van Halen

Marty; melodic playing, Exotic sounding licks, he has an exeptionally good ear and actually knows what the note will sound like before he plays it --> Awesome improviser.

Jason; IMO the only person living or who has lived in decades that you can actually call a musical Genius, once again IMO musically up there with legendary guys like Mozart, Paganini and Beethoven for example

Eddie; Theres no man like Eddie, he has a very unique style which is really cool, IMO Eddie Van Halen is the "master of the set" if you know what I mean.


And to shellshock:
I think the whammybar is one of the coolest things in eddies playing, maybe his tapping licks are simple but they sound really cool! Eddie has a lot of different Ideas in his playing; cathedral for example, the playing with the volume knob. And I've seen Eddie do some Extremely hard tapped harmonics licks also.... in a way this a little silly like we would be little kids comparing their favorite Pokemans laugh.gif


--------------------
Anyone can learn to play fast, like anyone can learn to type quickly. But not everyone can write a book.

Idols:

Jason Becker (ex-Cacophony, ex-David Lee Roth, Solo)
Marty Friedman (ex-Cacophony, ex-Megadeth, Solo)
Niccolo Paganini (Solo)
Eddie Van Halen (Van Halen....Duh!)
Frederic Chopin (Solo)

Yes! I have listened to rock music for about 7 years now and I have yet to see anyone match the talent and versitality of John Petrucci.

This dude right here comes near John's playing field: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATub40Npxik

Steve Howe is also really good.

I also like many classical guitarists, JerryC rules too.

But outside that, I don't really see the need to listen to anyone else besides Petrucci tongue.gif .

EDIT: Oh yea, Muris is also a really great guitarist, people on GMC should realize how good he really is!


Actually there is a lot of guitarists who could match Petrucci its just he has his owwn style.

Yea Jason Becker is really really great as well, my favorite song by him would have to be Eleven Blue Egyptians. Shame what happened to him.

Eheh, Les Paul, Leo Fender, and Dick Dale don't have visibility on MTV, also DT, unfortunately.

Joe Satriani
Buckethead
and on a completely different style Tommy Emmanuel (www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhR04kmcSXU) is his best song i think.

Yea, I'm familiar with both as Derek was in Dream Theater for a few albums, and Rick made some of my favorite Yes songs and solos (Roundabout, South Side of Heaven, etc.)

Check out this keyboard battle between Rudess and Sherinian.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4ids4rOegI
5:49-8:30

I prefer Rudess on this one and Petrucci's little blues-jazzy interlude thing was pretty tight as well. How they managed to keep 2 keyboardists, a drummer, a guitarist, and a bassist prefectly in sync with little to zero mistakes, even through this time signature changes is beyond me though.

However my favorite keyboardist is probably Kevin Moore, his work in Take the Time is amazing!
