    :OMG: @ Chet Thompson solo

    That is easily one of the most impressive performances I've seen.

    I'd say Andre Olbrich. Many people love Blind Guardian, but it seems very few appreciate this Brian May of metal enough... :worship:

    That one called... Kirk Hammett. :worship: Any metal guitarist when he first took a guitar wanted to play something from him.
    He influenced all of us and all of current bands.

    The virtuosism is not only play fast notes and strange scales, it is also to compose the right notes and silences to make magic.

    Thank you Kirk. :headbang:

    I definitely did back when I was first starting. I don't know if I've already mentioned him in this thread (major fail if I have!), but Dan Spitz was amazing for Anthrax, I know he wasn't mega technical, but his solo's were very very memorable, and to be honest Rob Caggiano doesn't hold a candle to Dan from what I've seen in a lot of their live stuff. Rob doesn't seem to play many leads live, which really disappoints me. All I can hope for is that Dan comes back and Anthrax will be back to how they once were!

    I've played a few Kirk licks in my day, but to say he's underrated is fucking retarded. No offense.

    I know alot of people on here definately know them, but I think that Marten Hagström and Frederik Thordendal are pretty underrated, and yes I know that Frederik's solo style is pretty much an Alan Holdsworth knockoff at times, but that doesn't mean it still isn't cool as shit, and they're definately two very solid rythym players, especially considering all the weird shit they do.

    Chryst the Thread is UNDERRATED GUITARIST. It's not fucking retarded to say Kirk Hammett is underrated. And saying that you offend. He is not the best but he is not the worst and he was important in Metal guitar although someone thinks the opposite. I only say he is a "star", if you will, for playing in a famous band like Metallica but between musicians he is underrated.

    :headbang:
