    Here I invite everyone to share facts, comments, and ideas about the ultimate name in the world of guitar, Joe Satriani. I find his music is richer, content wise, than his students like Steve Vai and Jeff Tyson, and even than his idol, the great Jimi Hendrix. He is a versatile genius with an attractive technique, and his pace and accuracy never fail to surprise. So cheers for the greatest of all guitarists.

    No arguements except that Steve Vai is of the same league as Joe Satriani.

    Hey did you know that a lot of Satriani's music comes from Blues melodies that he learnt early on? His friend used to classify them as Satch Boogies. From those came the later pieces.
    A piece I've always found awsome is Always With You, Always With Me.

    I like Vai better than Satriani. But don't get me wrong i think Joe is one of the best there is. I just like Vai's music better.

    haha.... Kirk Hammett... E Minor Boy.... thats quite funny.

    I think John Petrucci is comparable to Joe Sat. His dexterity in composition and depth of music knowledge is amazing.

    Petrucci is 9for me) Better than Satch.. But Vai is oooo.. I like For the Love of god and Bar horsie and Audience Is Listening and stuff..

    But how can anyone forget Three minute Warning, Paradigm Shift, Acid Rain, Pull me under, Overture 1928, Anything from Turbulence or Falling into infinity...

    For vai, I like For the Love of God and Audience is Listening and Ballerina etc...
    Satriani, I like the melodic bluesy stuff.
    But the best are the G3 pieces, such as Attitude Song.
    Petrucci is also of the same league as them, and so is Michael Romeo and a few other guitarists. Its hard to compare them individually.
    Kirk Hammett is not of the same league.

    jayanth <.: : Call Quits : :.>

    Kirk hammet, Alexi, are in the Second league..

    talking about some Metal Guitarists, How about dimebag..

    Dimebag Darrell is not bad... I would put him in your second league. But I have never been much of a pantera fan.
    I would consider Scott Ian, Andre Olbrich, Zakk Wylde, Dave Mustaine, Paul Gilbert, Yngwie, Eric Johnson, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith to be of this league as well.

    Hmm.. maybe Yngwie and Gilbert deserve higher.
     
  17. jayanth

    jayanth <.: : Call Quits : :.>

    Dimebag Darrel Would be in the first league. You havent check out his solo material.. Thats why.. Paul Gilbert is on top too. So is malmstein..

    K, I'll take your word for it.
     
  19. jayanth

    jayanth <.: : Call Quits : :.>

    Probably he is under the Pantera Shadow.. Also check out Steve hacket or Genesis. .One Amazing guitarist.. Not to mention Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme..

    I think For the love of god and Eugene's trick bag are Vai's best.
