how about guitar gods??
like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert and Yngwie Malmsteen...
i dun think Tolkki had reached their level yet...
but...

Tolkki is still one of the greatest guitarist that i had known so far :lol: :lol:

And, Andrew Bordoni of the band, Earthcubed, is really good, too...So is Chris Poland(he plays for Megadth once again!).

well Petrucci actually is one of the top guitarist because of his thechnique.

He has developed every aspect of guitar playing.

He can play fast,he can play slowly,had good melody etc...
But i still don't like his style.

Romeo and Tolkki are more Malmsteenian :D even if i think romeo is clearer in thechnique than tolkki.
You can see the difference in the way they move they're fingers on the guitar.

So,if i have to speak in thechnique i will say:

- petrucci
- romeo
- tolkki.

If i have to speak for me,for the style etc...

- tolkki
- romeo
- petrucci

:D

"And mine is bigger than yours" :wink:

I think all those guitarists are superior in their own way but I wouldn't even try to put them in any specific order.

Now if you would've had Alexi Laiho of Children of Bodom listed as one of the three, then the decision would've been a bit easier cause WildChild is a maniac with his guitar. Just my opinion.

Stevie Ray Vaughan of course ;)

No, but i think Petrucci is very impressive, he can really play a wide range of different styles, not just metal or neo classical stuff but also Jazz and Blues elements and very emotional parts (on the older albums), so i think i would vote for him :)

EDIT: Same for Joe Satriani...

there are so many great, unique guitar players out there, this question is senseless ;)

Best Guitar Player

Post by Elazul » Tue Aug 10, 2004 2:06 pm

I think it is Timo Tokki because he can play
melodic and speed parts in the same time..

he is a perfectionist

But I think Kirk Hammet and Slash are very good guitar players too :crazy1:

I don't know all the guitar players are very special and very skilled in there own way so it's very hard to relay to the topic but if I had to chose it would have to be tolkki because even though I like Dream Theater. There newalbums aren't as good as there other ones so TOLKKI all the way

Although Romeo is more technical than Tolkki I feel Tolkki is a much better songwriter (keep in mind I love Symphony X too) and songwriting is always first in my book. I also feel Timo is more emotional than Romeo too :)

Petrucci's just overrated so I don't talk much about him although I do like a select few Dream Theater albums ... 8)

Esteban is a great Hispanic guitarist.

From the Past, I have to say the Late Jim Croce can't hardly be beat! I saw a special last night on APT/PBS, and i had also forgotten what a great songwriter/guitar player he was! He was VERY popular when I was a child until a plane crash took his life at only 30 years old(I think).

His greatest songs were: Lover's Cross, Time in a Bottle, Bad Bad LeRoy Brown etc. etc. Many Songs still being played today after 30 years of his death.

ok everybody votes for tolkki (we are in stratovarius page so this is not a surprise)

BUT, my vote goes for Pretucci, we can do more extensives solos, stunnigs scales , arpeggios and irregular scales. by all of this my vote goes for PRETUCCI.

STUPID TOPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!! But of course Romeo is the best out of them. I like Tolkki the same. Petrucci isn't shit compared to Romeo! But he is a great player.
