    In your opinion, who do you think is the better guitar player? LaBrie can shred but Rullo has better feeling IMO. So who is better?

    Hard choice. In the end, I had to go with LaBrie cos in my opinion he's got clearly a better right hand technique plus his string bending skill is godlike.
    Rullo got him on the 2-string arpeggios though.

    They're both boring, technical wankers. I wish one of them would learn to put some EMOTION into their solos...they should both really listen to some more Michael Angelo, it would do them a lot of good.

    Dude, Rullo's way better on 7 note-per-string scale runs, but Labrie's got more feel in his 4-string arps. It's a tough choice, but Labrie's right-hand technique kills Rullo's suberb tapping skill. So JLB obviously gets it for versatility. Don't believe me? Just check out songs like "Out of the Asses" and "Strange Takeout Food"

    (Yeah, I shamelessly re-used a shitty joke from the parodies thread).

    I think the best guitarist out there right now is Mike Portnoy

    This is so amusing that I can't contribute my opinion to this thread for fear of killing the joke.

    Are you guys KIDDING ME? LaBrie's tone SUCKS, it sounds like two chained metalzones into a rockman into a digitech processor into a gigant wall of 2" speakers! Besides, legato is just about the sloppiest I've heard by far.

    Rullo all the way, the man OWNS the fretboard AND he sounds like god on weed.

    I think LaBrie could play the guitar better with his teeth, whereas Rullo could play the guitar better with a long wooden pick.

    Yea, but Elton John is a harpsichord player so you can't compare him to the other guys.

    What are you talking about?? :D

    I voted for JLB, because c'mon... his techniques are far more better than Rullo's! And his solo's... wow, just a genious he is.
