    Top 10 Most OverRated Guitarists

    This video is sure to bring the outrage. A lot of blasphemy in here, but I mostly agree with his choices.

    Let the fun begin:

    From the video:

    10 Zakk Wylde
    9 The Edge
    8 Kirk Hammett
    7 Slash
    6 Ace
    5 Joe Perry
    4 Jack White
    3 Santana
    2 Clapton
    1 Hendrix

    That's right, Hendrix is the most overrated guitarist with Clapton 2nd.

    Get ready everyone, I'm gonna blow your mind here cause I'm like so contrarian so you should sit down: ______insert uneducated "shocking" POV ______ rinse recycle.



    That's the big thing these days for people making a buck on the monetized video/audio channels on the 'net. Clickbait crap from half breeds.

    I've seen Joe Perry live several times over the decades. I thought he was always an amazing live player. I don't think he plays like anybody else.

    No good can come of this -- these are all very good to excellent guitarists, most of whom have been in bands that have brought decades of joy to their audiences. Jimmy Page was pretty sloppy post-'75 with Zeppelin; that doesn't take away from the incredible music his band recorded.

    What's that old adage?

    Arseholes are like opinions, or some such.

    I offer this observation without watching the video; yes, I'm that good.

    The guy doesn't even deserve the miniscule traction the LPF can offer. Looking at his overall YT views he doesn't even register as much digital influence as a gnat during a weekend BBQ.

    Didn't watch it, but I know that guy's full of stupid.

    This is what happened as they "monetized" YouTube videos.

    Now, it's just another venue to get Click-Bait.

    Same here. I didn't watch it so he won't get a YouTube penny from my curiosity click.

    Another YouTube wannabe trying to make money for being stupid.

    Does it seem like people getting dumber?

    How can someone be over rated at art?

    It's just more video troll money grabbing.

    Ability to play fast is a thing but it's not necessarily what anyone wants to listen to for an extended amount of time.

    I don't like Clapton, the Edge is all FX, Perry's tone on Sweet Emotion is one of the best tone's in rock history, it's all opinion. There is no "wrong/right" to art.

    Kirk at #8, I wonder how many triple platinum riffs the reviewer has written......or whether he's played in front of a million plus at a single gig.

    To make this list, someone must be highly rated in the first place.

    Nope, I’m not falling for that click bait.

    That.


    I learned a lot about what being a guitar player is all about when I read Johnny Ramone's book.

    1 to 10 = Santana..

    Loud repetition again and again and again. Like having someone shouting all the time to try and get a point across.

    I never forgave him for s**tting all over Peter Green's beautiful playing at the RRHOF in 1998. Call me biased..

    I asked Peter about 3 years later what he thought of that performance, that night, it was the only time that evening he didn't give me a wonderful answer. He just gave me "the look" until I asked him something else..

    Re: Top 10 Most OverRated Guitarists

    I wonder what this guy's list of best guitarists looks like.
    Now, I'll be the first to admit that some players may be over-idolized, no matter how good they are...
    but to make lists (videos) like that... rolleyes
