:lol:

well, my suggestion is first of all take off the "technicality" criterion

also, never admit to not knowing much about guitar, even if you really don't. nobody here does, actually.

as for the list.... i don't remember there being any great guitar playing in "whole lotta love"... can you refresh my memory?

Well what I do know about guitar is that "Whole Lotta" love has a very memorable riff, great "mini-solos", and during that wild section where everything goes bananas the guitar is insane, even though they are using studio gadgets to create that sound. Also, I know a little about guitar, but what I meant was that I didn't know enough to give an accurate answer on why one performance might be better than another.

Anways, since your the moderator, are you letting this list stay?

if you really intend to do something with it, of course.

dunno if you're aware of it but during the "wild section" one of the instruments used was the theremin... guitar doesn't do much there except be scraped a little, if memory serves right

anyway, i think whole lotta love features a very recognizable riff but i personally don't see the guitar performance in it is great by any stretch... unless you want to somehow adjust your criteria, anyway (with more emphasis on memorable riffs or something)

Really??? I didn't know that. Well that was the reason why I put it on the list. I mean, it could still make the top 100 with the riff and solos alone, but it would probably be low. I'll keep it on for now, but it will probably get kicked off later.

Anyways, do you have any suggestions on what should be on the list?

Dang. That was fantastic. Not only have I found a new great guitar song, but I have found a new great song.

:lol: the best of it is when people get in arguments about guys' "technical skill" when the people arguing can barely play. thats why the original all-genre list was all based on secondary sources, because im not nearly qualified to tell someone whether McLaughlin was more skilled than Paco or whatever, other than to tell someone that secondary sources tell me he isn't. imagine me telling him "yeah you're good kid, but you don't have the technical skill that he does"

That's a good point. When arguing about these things, I try to think of what other players have said, and also my own experiences as a player. Acting too high and mighty about legendary players is not wise, and although I've found myself doing that from time to time, I try to keep it respectful.

It just doesn't look good if some 16 year old kid is smugly accusing Larry Coryell of being sloppy, even if it is true.

but he is sloppy. it should be obvious even to a toddler. for example, my little cousin cried when i played coryell's stuff for her, seemed content when it was jmac, and smiling and very happy when it was paco.

(on a sidenote, knut the bear from my avatar enjoys the sounds of joseph spence)

I was obsessed with Hazel's California Dreamin' a couple of years ago. I still love it. When the drums enter is one of my favorite parts.

Another suggestion: Achille's Last Stand
