All time top guitarists (Page 6)
struanrobertson02: 6 minutes of pure ugly guitar wankery. But he does have a much better side to him that is sorta underrated.
Mellissey: Yes struan. He is fucking amazing. And he was self taught, did you ever notice how beat up his guitar is? The frets are worn down from so much use. Wish I could play like that.
struanrobertson02: Wow, I never knew that. That is Simply amazing.
I heard somewhere that at a certain time in his life he practised guitar every waking moment, that is inhuman. But then again it is soooooo worth it, Classical Gas may just be the hardest song ever written on guitar, but one of the best musically.
struanrobertson02: Shawn Lane is another top league guitarist. Without him you wouldn't have no Bucketheads, Paul Gilberts nor Guthrie Govans. A total master of speed and emotion.
briansmythe: Yea tommy and his brother forget his name used to play up the local all the time , Forget about bucket head lol Im sorry I brought it up
struanrobertson02: Bucket Head is a great guitarist, just very hard to take his look and some of his work seriously. And I do understand his hate, replacing Slash in Guns N Roses, his stupid look and his souless shreds he sometimes shits out.
But these two songs are great.
He's got less fast in the past few years, but his songwriting and diversity in playing have improved.
Oh, and I'm ready for the hate, The man with the KFC bucket on his head IS miles better than Slash.

briansmythe: Axel rose was a flip I liked it when kurt Cobain punched him out one time when they were playing together,
struanrobertson02: Every time I show someone this, they lose their minds.
The phrasing of it so good and speed so quick, soulful and precise.
Shawn Lane is what I believe to be the perfect guitarist. He had a natural talent for guitar which gave him unparalleled speed, Rusty Cooley would be smashed if they had a speed battle as Shawn Lane has barely been seen at his full potential and man is this frightening:
But what's speed without emotion? Well Shawn Mothereffin' Lane is not that, as he also had what could of been the best phrasing and heart heard to man. His licks are super melodical and emotional when slowed down, and when he's doing his amazing speed runs they sound really nice and not like scraping chalk off a blackboard.
This is what a Shawn Lane song would probably sound like if his licks were slowed down:
This is only a small portion of his stuff, but some of his best nevertheless.
R.I.P Shawn Lane.
