I would pick Tony Iommi he created a new sound because he lost his finger tips in accident and had to tune his guitar down in order to grip the strings and created the best music in the world heavy metal
I've always been pretty amazed by that, when I first heard about it. I do love his playing.
I saw black Sabbath last year amazing show
Great band. I preferred Dio over Ozzy although nobody sang Paranoid like Ozzy in the early days. What do you think?
Love dio too but ozzy was my favorite and paranoid is my favorite sabbath song
I agree about Paranoid, it's mine too. I think every band I ever played in attempted that song.
I will get back to this one in a sec... a min... soon.
Thank you, Dallas.
Lost track of things for a moment, even though I'm drunk and sharp as a spoon!
Do you want me to translate the lyrics, since they aren't quite, what the originals are?
A lot of people don't know that Iommi invented the very first light-gauge guitar strings now used my most guitarists.
True I wonder how many people know he used the melted pieces of plastic coke bottles to take the place of his finger tips so he could grip the strings
Lead is heavy. It's atomic weight is not that far from gold. So, it has to be a heavy guitarist, but not too heavy, because the stages are often build "just so"... Well... Shit. This is a tough one, even when taken seriously. It's difficult to determine, who has influenced whom, in the bigger scale. Some say... Well, not the Stig obviously, but... Shit. Does Jimi count as a lead? I'm a huge fan, but he played it upside down, so I'm not sure if people want to be upside down, while playing. **** it. I'm a Finnish heavy metal enthusiast and I say nothing of importance here. Well, that's not new. If you're not happy with Jimi, then I have to start spamming some Nightwish here. ;o) ;o)
Yes I would count Jimi Hendrix he revolutionized music too there is really no Right answer because there are so many great ones out there I was just curious to see who people would pick
Hard not to argue Les Paul.....and then, I've always liked Billy Gibbons. Personal taste I guess.
Billy gibbons is awesome indeed I saw Zz top in concert great show
Seriously probably Cuck Berry had the most influence on the way rock guitar is played by many. There are lots of stylists that had huge influence but for wide spread basic technique?
I agree Chuck berry was huge influence on many of the guitar players I love
I like Eric Clapton, and also J.J. Cale. Both great!
I'd suggest anyone who created a different sound or style that others were inspired by. Eddie Vanhalen would be one, The Edge from U2, his sound and style were very unique, also Santana. Mark Knofler (Dire Straits) is another one who's riffs were basically taken from country and other influences and he made a unique sound out of them. I'm not up on metal enough, but I know I've missed some there too.
Definitely Eddie Van Halen and Carlos Santana.
There are many but i would say Jimi Hendrix because he started the different sounds (effects).
Leading people to experiment more with different sounds, instead of the usual guitar twang sound, everyone else was still using..
I agree about Tony Iommi and i could rattle off a hundred more guitar players...
Randy Rhoads,Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch on and on..
I forgot about Randy Rhodes that guy was as unique as they come.
I'm just discovering Artists I don't know
carry on ;)
YES!! love it! such a great guitarist. Reminds me of when Spinal Tap... who pretty much sent up all the mainstream musicians, did what I thought was a Randy Rhodes send up....
Love that film
I know, it's timeless :)
Ah ...the custom made polka dot flying V by Karl Sandoval ... his trademark guitar.
Yea....He changed a lot of things about guitar playing, for sure..
Yes he did. He doubled picked most of his solos, also reversing a lot of his licks which made his sound unique.
Can you imagine what he would of done had he not died at the age of 26?
I think that's why Randy's my all time favorite, it's what he would of become if he was still around.
BTW, wasn't Steve Vai one of you favorites?
Yea he is one of my favorites..
I could name so many it wouldn't end..
The great Randy Rhoads
Yes I should have mentioned him.
He's been my all time favorite for so many years. He has a very distinct style and one of the greatest techniques.
I agree! his playing is unmistakable.
What about eric Clapton the yardbirds cream Derek and the dominoes
enjoy your post Metal God
Don't forget the Yardbirds had an up an coming guitarist after Clapton left by the name of Jimmy page

My top 5 for being influential.
