    Ok, we can all go on forever with our favorite guitarists but who is willing to call out a famous guitarists who they feel is overrated? I've already committed a rock sacrilege by saying Jimi Hendrix was sloppy. Come on boys, take your best shots. Must give some reason why. Boring play, boring tone, lack of imagination, sloppy, can't play arpeggios--whatever. I have a few big dogs in mind but I'll wait to see what ya'll come up with.
    Jimmy Page. Sloppy as a Texas summer day is long. He can write a decent hook though.

    Not even close.

    Chucky should be the beginning and end. This, is the classic you should be looking at, not Led Zep.

    I recall playing Pop-Warner Football....American style football. When we won a game we would go to Shakey's Pizza and play that song on the player piano and the whole team would sing to it. We must have driven the patrons out. I remember only having a vague knowledge of what he was saying. Ahh, the innocence.

    Carlos is one of those hit and miss guy's, IMHO. For the most part, he miss's with me.

    How about CCR. Those guy were gold!!

    Ah yes the innocence, I was only a young fellow when I saw on TOP of the POPs, in the UK, I remember it made my mum smile (which was rare for her at that time in her life) , only a few years later did understand why the smile.

    I just couldn't stay away , at least I can stay out of trouble here , lol.

    I'm thinking Slash ( GNR ) ,but at the same time he doesn't care at least. There are many that fit this and most could care less.

    ET fingers = Paul Gilbert and he looks like the guy on a show my daughter watches , lol. I'd love to hang out and talk to Paul but I'll bet that he does not drink. A hero of mine for 25 years for sure.




    That is a BEAST to play on bass , and damn I don't play enough anymore to keep the required hand strength.
