    who do u think is better guitarist. in overall ...tecnically .... :dance:
    eddie is one of themost technical guitarist of his era...invented new techniques....
    n slash is Unique in his Style....

    (i got this Idea cuz both of them played with Micheal jackson MTV awards live...
    Van halen played on BEAT IT n Slash played on "Black or White"(by MJ) :think: ...live !)

    Man ... What a comparison. :mad:

    Frank Zappa once said. "Jimi Hendrix invented the Electric Guitar and Eddie Van Halen re-invented it". How could you make a comparison of Slash with him. :mad:

    I personally enjoy GNR songs better than Van Halen songs but Eddie Van Halen is light years ahead of where Slash is in terms of being a guitarist.

    hey lefty u gettin reps :) all slash fans gt reps :)
    Slash is one of the most underrated guitarists ive seen....and sadly its only here that people underrate him, i have said this before...saying it again......but anyother forum u go too..u will find s huge fan following for slash......
    he has 2 of his riffs as the top twenty riffs of the century...and very few of ewm have that....he has it all.....amazing image....he has amazing melodies....blistering speed.....catchy riffs....technical prowess.........
    He is GOOD....VERY GOOD....if u ask me..GNR was GNR and as huge a phenomenon solely dude to slash......Axls vocals are to say the least....mediocre..........

    Hey Saurabh, see that Calvin figure you have. Frank Zappa would have done all those stuffs if he knew you'd compare Van Halen with him.

    slash was better in slow melodic stuff department ...
    van halen better in fast soloing ...

    ne way van halen was amongst the pioneer of fretboard finger/pick tapping ... b4 him no one did it ... and he also has a masterpiece "Eruption" to his name/fame ...

    dont think anything like that is there for slash ...

    b.t.w. GnR was pop mainly bcoz of Axl Rose ...

    Small correction Slayer. Two hand fretboard tapping was a pretty old technique. The first person known to be using it was Jimmy Webster as early as in the early 1950s. It was also used by a few other Jazz guitarists like Stanley Jordan. It was initially called as the touch technique. Eddie Van Halen is the person who brought out the real fire in the technique and who also popularized the technique.

    yup..i had read somewhere that ace frehley also accused van halen of copyin him.
    tappin has been around before eddie..but tappin was brought to a whole new level by eddie.
    by a whole new level i mean..a WHOLE new level.

    strictly speaking no comparison at all...Eddie issss a million miles ahead of slash any day...slash is good but not anywhere technically as proficient as eddie is..a comparison with the likes of joh petrucci, eric johnson, steve vai and of course satch might be more in line

    A small snippet not meant to offend anyone. Neverthless a true incident. Eddie Van Halen was a huge fan of Ritchie Blackmore. Infact Eddie has been tremendously influenced by Blackmore in his playing. When Eddie was just surfacing as a guitarist, a common comment was "Look, there's a guy playing like Blackmore but faster". Anyway that's not the thing.
    Eddie Van Halen when he was hailed as a guitar god, met Ritchie Blackmore. Eddie was tremendously excited and explained Blackmore how he meant to him and how much his playing has influenced his style. Blackmore being the biggest egoist in the world replied to Eddie "If I meant so much to you, then why dont you kiss my foot".
    Eddie got totally pissed off.
