yea but aren't they more known for soloers more than riffers. And plus, there the only guitarist in there band, so they have to play both sides. I'm talking about 2 guitarist kinda bands, one does riff the other does the soloing part. Like Anthrax and Gorguts.

I would think someone who can do both would be preferred over someone who can only do one well. I mean there's plenty of players missing from the list though, of course tongue.gif

Well thats not the point though. I was just trying to ask or maybe seek the answer as to why rhythm based players aren't well thought off as a soloist player.

I think it is hard to see the technicality of a guitarist if he does not play solo.

Take James Hetfield for example. He has so many good rhythm stuff
But he recorded the solo from Nothing Else Matters. From that one piece, you can see he is good in soloing as well, but he hardly can show it. By the way he is in that list at some point, after 100...

Some guys that are the only guitarist, I admire more for their rhythm work than solo, such as John Frusciante.

It doesn't matter how much time you spend if you don't know the correct things to do, and the correct way of doing those things. Fifteen minutes of correct practice will do you more good, than 5 hours of incorrect, unintelligent practice. Bad practice just makes you better at playing badly!

This list makes sense. The ranking for each individual could be argued infinitly but overall it's OK.
Never liked Jimi but doing what he did when he did it... he was influential.
Some are more skilled, some make better music, some have more impact and some are more influential.

The #2 - #4 spots are interesting, The Yardbirds. Does that make Yardbirds the greatest, most influential band ever with most fans and followers? Hardly, but still interesting.

That depends. I don't give a rats behind for a soloist. It's in the RIFFS 'N RHYTHM!
