    He's pretty dope live.

    I like this suggestion mostly because it complements mine from earlier in the thread. John Frusciante has recorded guitar for the Mars Volta since Frances the Mute I believe. Then it was just solos, after that he recorded the majority of the guitar tracks.

    So here we are lovers of lost dimensions
    Itsuka hi no kaze ni noote haruka tooi
    Burning supernovas, of all sound and sight
    Hayaka no koto e
    Every touch, a temptation
    Itsuku sora hitotsu michimono hi Wataateyukeyu
    And for every sense, a sensation
    Hanateta koto e

    Err, you do know Mike Dirnt is a bassist? ^^

    But for me, the best lead guitarist is probably Kirk Hammett. Here is one of his amazing solo's : clicky clicky

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    When it comes to skill, i gotta say:
    John Petrucci (Dream Theater) and Don Anderson (Agalloch) comes to my mind.
    A part from that, i'd say i really love the guitar-playing by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and Mikael Åkerfelt (Opeth), even though they're not lead-guitarists that much, they still write a lot of the material.
    I make my own music for fun. Check it out. I also write music reviews on my blog, which you can also check out!

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    I never used to have a favorite guitarist, until the hubby sat me down and made me listen to Tom Morello. The things he does on a guitar, I just find awesome. It's like he's spinning discs on it or something, it's just spectacular.
    This passion is a plagiarism.

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    My biggest influence would be John Petrucci. Other than that it's Guthrie Govan (only mentioned once in this thread, makes me sad) Ron Jarzombek (Spastic Ink), Satch, Dimebag and a couple more.

    Michael Romeo, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Joe Satriani, Mark Tremonti, and Jon Schaffer

    I know that there is may more great guitarists but this is the ones that comes to mind.

    This is sadly depressing that nobody has come up with the correct answer. the correct answer is of course Mr. Edward Van Halen.

    Satriani is a somewhat distant second and fighting for 3rd would have to be Dave Murray from Maiden.

    Re: Your Favourite Lead Guitarist

    Tim Reynolds is the best guitarist IMO.

    2 of my favours are

    Santana (I just adore his music )
    Herman Li (While I do know, he has proved that he can't play some of his songs as he did before (TFF) I still am stunned over the fact that he was self learned, and that he still mester his guitar as was it part of him self)
    It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
