  • Best On The Guitar

    I absolutely think that Randy Rhodes was was the ultimate best at what he did.

    I think Zakk Wylde is a very close second. I think his best work was with Ozzy. His favorite player was Randy Rhodes and thus he patterned his work after him.

    Jimmy Hendrics is also right up there.

    So is Slash. By the way, I have a friend who has a leather jacket that was given to him by Slash and he also has Slash's electric guitar.

    Jimmy Page was great too.

    Who do you think is/was the best???

    You have mentioned some very good ones. I would add Jake E. Lee to that list (his stuff AFTER Ozzy is very good). Eric Clapton needs to be on that list in my opinion. George Lynch is another who should garner consideration for the list.

                    Where has he been lately btw??

                    Too bad rock band don't have a lot of use for trombone or baritone players or I would have been in there.


                    Seriously too bad I was not into jazz at the time (I am now). Classic yes but, like most kids who play music in high school I just kind of stopped when I started university.

                    As to the guitar player thing-I gotta second the names put forth now. I really don't like this ranking bit-it's kind of like ranking best "X" of WWII.

                    It's bloody difficult with the tech stuff (or gets really complicated like Panther's best tanks of WWII pools) and really impossible with people-best admiral, general, fighter pilot-what about best logistical officer?

                    With music or any other art it's even worse. The value is in the discussion I would say. Great, good and meh are my rankings generally.

                          With all due respect Delta...?

                          It's Randy RHOADS...for some reason, this drives me absolutely bonkers.

                          On topic:

                          A very, very good pioneer in the world of rock guitar that nobody ever talks about is Ulrich Roth (he was with Scorpions from 1973-78). Uli was a major influence on such notables as EVH, Yngwie, Blackmore and almost all of the generation of players that came out of LA in the early 80's (the early Scorpions records were readily available as Japanese imports on the US west coast in the late '70's).

                          Discrete tonal bending (a la Knopfler/Gilmour), an absolutely vicious hand vibrato, dare devil whammy bar work (with a standard fender tremolo system), blindingly fast, articulately flatpicked scalar passages, many using using diminished, phrygian dominant and harmonic minor scalar variants, and classical motifs like pedal tones and sweep picked arpeggios...

                          Uli has/had it all, and this at a time when only a very few "rock guys" even dared to step outside of the "blues box" and Malmsteen was still using the potty seat.

                          Check out the intro solo on "The Sails of Charon" (from "Scorpions: Taken by Force"; 1977) and the solos on "Longing for Fire" (In Trance; 1975) and "Catch Your Train" (Virgin Killer; 1976)...the "Tokyo Tapes" double live album is full of amazing "Uli" moments, from one end to the other.

                          Cheers, Ron
                          48 trips 'round the sun on this sh*tball we call home...and still learning...

                            I got those imports from a now-closed wonderful shop in Atlanta. I have everything the Scorps has ever put out. I'm just a Schenker fan. I really didn't pay much attention to Ulrich. Possibly I should. Say Ron-seems like many of us play. Won't be long til we have an ACG band.
