Ok everybody, I know this is going to start a shit storm, but why not? Sometimes we need a good ole' argument. It's good for the soul :devilshades:


For me it's a no brainer, Slash has left a mark on the history of rock that Buckethead hasn't even sniffed. I do think Bucket is the more technically profficiant player, but Slash's work speaks for it's self. The riffs, the solos, and his "feel" trumps anything Buckethead has ever recorded.

I look foreward to your rebuttles.....

I added BBF to the discusion just to add another "fun" little element. :bitchfight:

I like the old band, I like the new band, I even liked that freaky 2001/02 band. Can't we all just get along??????

What's the criteria?

Best at playing guitar?
Best at writing hits?
Best fit for GNR?

Be more specific or I can't answer.

All of the above, except the gnr part. This is not intended to be a "who is best for gnr" thread. It is meant who is the best guitarist period. Technically profficiant, greatest impact, best riffs, best solos, best music, and anything else you want to consider. Just pick one and defend your pick, not that hard guys.

Technical ability is only one criteria. Pavoratti owns Axl on the opera stage, but Pavoratti would get booed off a rock stage. So which one is honestly better? It is all very subjective.

Technically it's Bumblefoot. The guy can do anything with the instrument. Sometimes it's just a bit too wanky though, and his punk style isn't always to my taste.

As far as combining exceptional technical ability with enjoyable melodic playing goes, it's Buckethead. He can play almost as well as Bumblefoot, but his music is much more enjoyable and versatile.

For creating enjoyable contemporary music and fitting best in GNR, it's Slash. The guy's riffs (and solos when he's trying) are up there with the best.

Voted Bumble because his approach to theory and to technique is what made me want to adopt a more serious approach to music in general and that was ten years ago...

Overall, though, I'd say bacardimayne's post sums it up.

Slash : iconic, best fit for GnR and wrote some very memorable solos

Buckethead : great shredder with a cool sense of melody ( which is to be appreciated )

Bumblefoot : insane technician with a taste for experimentation

Well, this.......thank you.
Without thinking of technic, Slash is my personal preference.

Buckethead is probably my fav guitar player. Slash is 50% of GNR so I love his playing and legacy. Who's BBF?

I'll go with Slash for the same reason I prefer him over Malmsteen, Batio, and Vai. Technical ability is only so important, Slash takes a simple chord progression and brings it to life while sending fucking chills down my spine, Buckethead and Bumblefoot are without a doubt great players but they don't have that same effect on me

If it was Slash against Robin I might be able to go either way, but Slash is defininately better than the other two here. They are both better technically, and might be able to shred better or whatever the fuck, it has nothing to do with making good music.
