I don´t recall any reasonable argument for Cobain not be included in the top 100. I just remember the same old biased arguments against a guitarist who represents the opposite of the shredder-highly-skilled guitarists that the list likes so much.

Now, can some one please explain to me what "Dimebag's whammy work and use of harmonics was innovative to metal and rock as a whole" means?
Where can I see that influence? How the use of harmonics on heavy metal is innovative? Didn’t Randy Rhoads used a lot of harmonics several years before Dimebag?


Dimebag Darrell's guitar tone, playing style and especially the use of harmonics and whammy have been REALLY widely imitated. Check out almost any modern heavy metal band out there, the influences are everywhere.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub0Z-XPmYCg Avenged Sevenfold have often cited Pantera as one of their biggest influences and it is pretty clear from their style. Synyster Gates is blatantly influenced by Darrell.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqfj4cqufNA One good example of player who has been hugely influenced by Darrell (and Wylde) is Euge Valovirta from Godsplague. At 1:04 (and especially later parts) you will hear lots of significane to Darrell's riffing and playing style in general
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h6QtA7nr7k Same guitarist, another song (you can clearly hear that they are really much influenced by Pantera, especially the vocalist and Valovirta).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BAiDKOqfvc Another band with Pantera- and Darrell-influences, you'll notice them pretty fast.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNjCZrsH25Q Another band and guitarist heavily influenced by Pantera and Darrell's fantastic playing: listen to the heavy riffing, squels and the soloing.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgGaNJw0coA Same band tributing Pantera.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fninRnmVRHw AND another Pantera-influenced band, the riffs and vocals sound just like aping the band.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuO522W2DJQ Tribute to Pantera and especially Dimebag Darrell (He has own festival called Dimefest, for fuck's sake!), fantastic vocals by Leo Jimenez.

There are literally hundreds of bands who are influenced by Pantera and Darrell. Seriously, Pantera were one of the biggest bands of 90's and Darrell was a guitar legend.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimebag_Darrell#Tributes List of some tributes for Darrell. Enough?

Timitzii posted this in response to you stating that Cobain was the greatest guitarist since the nineties. You more or less ignored the entire post which clearly shows that you have no response and that Cobain isn't as great as you claim. Perhaps if you would put in the same time as Timitzii did with your arguments, you would be taken more seriously. Endlessly calling someone distinctive is not going to convince people without other points and substance behind them. Also, do you really think its more likely that an entire forum of people is biased than it is that you are? Just something to think about.

You posted this:

Cobain played the good old guitar style of simple riffs and solos with great melodies and a really strong rock sound. It is simple, yes, and that is why I believe is more difficult to come with a new and distinctive sound as he did.






















thats not a breakdown, its not even a coherent response. Anyone who wanted to could have posted random guitar videos and went on to say Dimebag is the most distinctive guitar player since the nineties.

I didn't even know I had a list. It must be at least 3-4 years old.
