    i guess as a guitarist stage presence is as important as ur playing skills....if u ask me one of the most amazng performers i ve seen till date has to be angus young from AC/DC , what with his jumping and rolling..actually slash is pretty amazing too..though in his case its moe of a trance he goes into....pete town shed...jimi hendrix...this guys are a joy to watch......
    who do you guys think is the most amazing guitarist to watch

    I was amazed watching steve vai live. I saw malmsteem and satriani the same day - yngwei was a loose cannon, spinning and kicking and throwing picks every 5 seconds. Satriani looked too modest... but vai had an amazing stage presence - and an amazing smile! If I was a girl, I would've fallen in love.. or maybe I didn't have to be a girl.. maybe I already did.. um.. deviating...
    I think stage presence is rated differently by different people - jumping and rolling and lotta action might appeal to some, but to me its the aura and feeling of comfort and confidence a player brings to the stage that matters - and Vai ruled there!

    Jason Newsted :rock: Watch Cunning Stunts... Talking About stage presence, Dave Mustain Woodstock is something you must watch..

    Also You got to watch out for Mike Portnoy in his Concerts.. Kicks real a^&..

    If yo uare looking for energy watch SOAD..

    And best guitarist to watch for me would be John Petrucci...

    Also How many of you guys show attitude while singing and playing and stuff.. I do loads of such stuff..

    Among guitarists I would say Steve Vai. Overall, no one can beat Bruce Dickinson.

    Kirk Hammett was a good guitarist (although extremely overrated) and it would be wrong to say otherwise. But he has degraded and changed a lot.

    Whats the name of your band, jay?

    Angus young for sure.chek out his highway to hell.....he totally gets into the he rocks..........even Kiss...u have to agree...they have an astounding energy in their shows...steve morse has his own kind of presence...that of extreme focus....its intense especially the live version of smoke on the water...
  18. esgallindeion

    esgallindeion Minstrel Knight

    Demonstealer knows what Im talking about... Tho Hansi isn't one of the best live singers I've seen, he's got tremendous crowd support all the time, especially during songs like Bard's Song and Valhalla. If you can try to listen to Bard's Song (live) from the album The Forgotten Tales. They even have single The Bard's Song with 5 live versions of the song.

    i'm totally biased towards slash here ..... i think it's really a meaneat to match axl rose when he's going over board with his antics but slash always held his own ... and those riffs ..... they have a stage presence of their own ...... :) ... watch him going completely crazy in dont cry on top of the skyscaper or hold centerstage on top the piano in november rain ...... or any solo in the november rain or sweetchild o' mine videos .... i have a few live recordings of some GNR concerts ... that guy certainly rocks ...

    I will check out Hansi.. Noosstead Rulez though..

    Stage Prescence and Slash?? The Dont Cry is a Video.. YOu cant call it stage prescence.. Then chack out Memory Remains by Metallica.. They are on a Huge swing Lol... Or I Disappear.. They play in a place where Amps and stuff can vitually not work.. And Only the drum sound should have been hurt..

    Check out Salman Khan in Oh Oh Jaaane Jaaana then :p
