So, my previous post stands, but I don't get all the kirk hammett hate! It's not just here, it just seems to me that no one likes kirk. Then again, a lot of people think metallica sold out and won't listen to them anymore (I think that's ridiculous).

So, why the hate on kirk? I think he's amazing. So what if he's sloppy?


I just have to say that I love Kirk, even though he might be sloppy, his solos are at least good in a musical way, and just that makes him ten times better than Yngwie.

(And while I don't think metallica sold out, I just think they started to suck after the black album, but that doesn't change the fact that I love them, I'm even going to see them live later this summer, so it's just stupid to not listen to them anymore even though they've made some crappy records tongue.gif )

i totally agree with you man, Kirk's solos are very amazing, and when you analize each lick of the solo its amazing how together can make up such a great solo.

And well, im still a great fan of metallica, like you said, just because they made crappy records doesent mean they arent great anymore.!

Kirk Hammet
Slash
Zakk Wylde
are all some of my influences.

But I dont gey why everyone everyone says Hammet is sloppy
he might not be as clean as Ywingie or Steve Vai but there is a reason
why like three of Mettalicas solos are in the top 50 solos of all time

Well i guess it's like that because those charts where created 10 years ago when Metallica was something new. Those charts are never renewed or reviewed. And they are also as dumb as those TOP 10 guitarists charts. It's all based on someone's opinion.

You know - how can you decide which orchestra plays better? You ca! Give them all the same symphony to play and then you'll see which orchestra plays with more feeling, more expression, more in style of music period when the piece was written. But rock music is TOTALLY opinion based.

Personally I would have rewritten those top 100 guitarists and top 100 solos of all time lists, but kirk is still way up there in both of those. There's a lot I'd like to add to both lists though. I agree that Metallica hasn't been as good as in the past, but I still really liked everything they did post black album with the exception of St. Anger.

Yeah there are a lot of new solos that could be way up there but I still think
Hammets playing is not sloppy

PS- Pavel I do think that the top 100 guitarists is a complete joke theres just to many unknown great guitarists to do that

Getting into discussions like this gets me into trouble with guitarists, but it's fun...

You guys are forgetting something in the talk about sloppy playing. Who are the guys who are known for making a bigger impact on rock? Cobain, Plant and Hendrix and Hammett affected the world of music a lot more than Buckethead, Petrucci and Vai will. Album sales isn't everything, of course but it's hard to change the world with music that only music majors and guitar players are going to understand.

That said, I am looking into starting lessons from a neoclassical player towards the end of the summer. I think that the theory I'd pick up along the way would be more helpful to what I want to do (meaning, more than just guitar), and I think learning to play that way would help prepare me to be able to play whatever comes to mind.

So I don't want anyone to think that I don't value skill and clean technique....if I didn't, I wouldn't be here. I just think that one is better equipped to break the rules when one knows what the rules are.

Now that I think of it, I didn't really answer the question. I like guitar a bit messed up. I like the old blues players with cheap, nasty guitars. I like guys that make a mess with them like Ministry and Nirvana. Neil Young's Weld album just rocked my world. And Dick Dale.

Odd as it sounds I wanted to learn the Sax but it was too expensive (wanted to be John Coltraine or Michael Brecker). I ended up with an old Ibanez Silver Series Strat copy as it was cheap. Musical taste then diverged as a teenager and the first guitar solo I wanted to learn was The Only Ones 'Another Girl Another Planet' (still love that song).

As I got more into guitar influences/those I admire became:

Allan Holdsworth
Mike Stern
Steve Vai
Pat Metheny
Mike Goodrick
Pat Martino
Uli Jon Roth
Frank Gambale
Joe Pass

Cheers,
T

I first started out listening to my uncle play alot of deep purple, Jimi Hendrix guitar type stuff when i was about 4 or 5. I loved watching him play all the different guitars and amps he had. Unfortunately he died when i was about 5 and a half but i really got into guitar listening to the 2 old records i found, these being dity deeds done dirt cheap and back in black by acdc. From there i got really inspired by black sabbath and then metallica.

My fascination with Metallica and the Kirk Hammett solos is kinda starting to wear off now and im really begging to get back into Black Sabbath, along with Ozzy and Black Label Society and Pantera.

I have no idea wot it is about Zakk, Randy and Dimebag , but they just inspire me so much, their solos are nuts tongue.gif

Would be cool to know who else agrees with me

First of all: Rory Gallagher, a shy man, but an immensly powerful performer, then Alvin Lee, from Ten Years After, his 'Slow blues in C' is one of the finest pieces of guitarwork I know, and Brian My....

I seen a joke on youtube the other day in one of the comment because some people were argueing on which guitarist is better...Personally I'm sick to death with that argument. Leading to the joke, which I think most will appreciate:



How many guitarist does it take to change a light bulb?

100!
1 to change the bulb, and 99 to say they could have done it better



Who inspired me?

Metallica, Pantera, BB King, Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Black Sabbath, many many others.

It's not about how fast you can rip a scale, I need to like your songs tongue.gif
