    I noticed from the "Post what you look like" thread that there was some debate as to who the "best" guitarist was. Well, I'll start by saying that there is no such thing as the "best" guitarist, as everyone has a different style. You honestly can't really compare Michael Angelo Batio to Eric Johnson to Jeff Loomis, as they play completely different styles of music (Instrumental metal/rock, Blues, and metal respectively), and frankly, they're all awesome at what they play. This is a poll as to who your favourite guitarist is, and why.

    I personally picked John Petrucci. In case you're not sure who that is, he's best known as the guitarist for Dream Theater.This guy is the reason I started seriously playing guitar instead of a "once a week" type thing. He's a phenomenal musician. I listen to Dream Theater all the time mainly because of his guitar work. He can play anything from slow solos with a lot of feeling to some awesome shred solos and mix in between. Here are a couple of links to some of his stuff:

    YouTube - John Petrucci (Solo from "Under a Glass Moon")

    YouTube - John Petrucci solo (lie break) (Solo 1from "Lie")

    YouTube - Top Eight John Petrucci Guitar Solos (Here's a compilation of some really awesome solos by Petrucci)

    Anyway, post who your favourite guitarists are.

    Same here man since I was in 3rd grade, I own every single one of the Gn'R CDs' DVDs, and Use your illusion I & II - Tokyo concert in VSH. And a @#% load of poster.

    Sadly Hot topic is selling shitty Guns shirts. Like two years ago they sold the OLD GUns Logo and the Use your illusion I shirt... But then never again.

    Slash looks like that? Haha I need to see that!
