    In a way, Pakistani music scene is an extremely scaled down version of the western music scene of 70’s and 80’s. I think we can draw some equivalents between legendary guitarists and local ones in terms of styles and/or their influence on the local music industry.

    Eric Clapton – Amir Zaki (He has often been referred to as the Pakistani Clapton)

    John Petrucci – Faraz Anwar (Progressive metal. Mizraab often sounds like a local version of Dream Theater)

    David Gilmour – Mekaal Hassan (Lots of feel in his guitar playing)

    Jimi Page – Salman Ahmad (With catchy riffs, led the most successful local rock band, taking inspiration from Led Zeppelin)

    Slash – Nabeel Chisty (Good at creating rock music that’s accessible to wider audience)

    Edge – Shallum Xavier (Simplicity in playing and intelligent use of effects)

    Steve Vai – Adnan Afaq (Great technique and generous experimentation with guitar effects)

    Eddie Van Halen - Asad Ahmed (No-nonsense rock!)

    Are there any comments/additions to the list?

    Xavier uses effects:S... Anyhow i think Xulfi is comparable to Tom Morello from Audioslave. Riff Riff Riff with a blazing solo full of effects

    Put Rana Hassan against Yngwie Malmstreem. Speed lives.... Hardly any melody.

    @Limaj: Dude I agree with ya. Excellent player, that Xulfi fella. Hey thread starter, how DID u forget Xulfi???

    I really really love Xavier's technique. Very beautiful playing & excellent left hand. I dont know anything abt Nabeel Chisty, Adnan Afaq & Asad Ahmed. Plz tell me what bands r they with? Or are they underground soloists. Post their work. Thanks.

    These are very SCALED DOWN comparisons.

    Btw, evo, nabeel wuz aaroh's original guitarist. Made instrumentals one of which became naa kaho after lyrics were added. Look for his solo in the live version of Ajnabee in the battle of bands.
