    Guitar plays an integral part in Metal. I love the guitar(I might be bias cause i play the guitar) everything about is fucking awesome. I've been playing since i was 14 and one of the most influential guitarist on me was Kirk Hammet. Whos your Favorite Guitarist?

    none of them are the gmd.

    this is valid. different user groups browse different forums so that doesn't apply.

    although i agree these threads can get tiring, there is very little new stuff to discuss on a daily basis. stop being a forum nazi. just because it has been done before, doesn't mean it can't be resurrected (provided its not recent)

    anyhow, i like a number of guitarists, some that come to mind atm:
    - dave mustaine
    - chuck schuldiner
    - anders bjorler
    - tony iommi
    to name a few.

    ps: you may want to read the rules champ. you will see a number of posts locked by the moderator. try to follow them - you can then be sure you won't piss anyone off.

    I did nothing other than suggesting a few threads.

    Anyway I would have to say Mustaine or Schuldiner.
    EDIT: Mikael Akerfeldt. And too many others to list.

    My favorite will absolutely have to be Demonaz, I think. The perfect black metal guitarist.

    Other than he, these gets honorable mentions:

    Mikael Åkerfeldt
    Niklas Sundin
    James Hetfield
    Pierangelo Giglioni

    Kirk Hammett is the greatest lead guitarist of all time, the lead he brought into Metallica's music was exceptional. He was a perfect match and he showed technical excellence as well as his own distinctive style.

    I can't stand Kirk Hammet's soloing, even in old Metallica but it's just a taste thing so yeah.
