I second this notion, I'm not sure about far down on the list. Although I can think a few higher up myself, hell I'd put Kirk Hammet way higher than Eddie...

i put him in the category of im not a fan but the dude can play.

his stuff just does nothing for me but he clearly can play his ass off.
again, its about it being subjective

its not that i feel that he sicks cause of course he just does nothing for me

When I realized Dr. Rockso was a knock on DLR I laughed my ass off into the floor.

Brenden Small's a damn good guitarist and another probably better than Eddie Van Halen...

The solo in "The Seventh Seal" blows that out of the water.. IMO..

im not saying eddie sucks. of course he dont.
he is nasty. as a guitar player and someone who has studied theory for years, i can appreciate what eddie did/does with limited knowledge of theory.
it has just never been my back.

eddie never seemed very melodic to me.

i cant really put it into words. i just dont care for his stuff. at the same time i wish i could play that good.

it really bums me out cause to be honest i suck at guitar and that bothers me too.

of course i dont actually suck, i just want to be better than i am.

my theory far outshines my application. i have never been able to apply my knowledge to the fretboard.
i am a bit jealous of guys like eddie though. limited theory but can play.
i have crazy theory but am not happy with my playing.
to be fair, i dont have hours a day to devote to it. plus, my hand is messed up and it prevents me.

sorry. rambling.

eddie just always seemed like a jerk to me. to me, he seems like he thinks he is like the best of all time when really , he is nowhere close.

to be fair though, eddie has created some of the most played and memorable music of all time. he just did it with an attitude and i dont like that.

i dont like any musician that acts like that. like jack white.

it shouldnt be like that.
i always come back to guys like paul gilbert. frank zappa. guthrie govan.
true masters. virtuosos.
those guys seem like music fans first, musicians second.

the get off on playing with others. they get off on being surrounded by guys who are at their level. they thrive on it. it inspires them. they inspire others.

dudes like jack and eddie are not like that.

they think they are the tits(and in a way they are) but it comes off that way and it sucks

You should watch Les Paul and Eddie jam. Its on youtube. very melodic playing
