Who's a better guitar player? Kirk Hammet or Sinister Gates??


Recommended Posts

Not that I care much for either of them anymore but Synyster Gates and it's not even close. Gates could play any Metallica song with ease, Hammet couldn't play any of Gates leads nearly as cleanly or without taking DJ Ashba-esque short cuts.

I'm not too sure about Kirk vs. Gates, but Avenged's old drummer The Rev could wipe the fucking floor with Lars.

Not exactly a big shocking statement, but yes.

And Kirk. Yes, he's a bit sloppy these days but he has written some awesome leads. Hetfield should really write the leads these days. His lead guitar work has always been fantastic when he decides to write them.
