Dimebag is kinda my favorite
If this is a Megadeth vs Pantera vs Metallica then Marty Friedman.
Out of those three though, Mustaine. I guess I'm biased.
I like all those bands but for their different qualities.
But me not being a guitarists it's difficult for me to point out who's actually got the most skills.
Darrel was the most unique.
Hammets a hack.
Petrucci, Friedman, fuck yeah.
QFT, except Metallica, I was done with them after ...An Justice For All, but Friedman is probably the most technical player, but Dimebag would probably be my personal favorite because Pantera was one of the first bands my cousin ever showed me when I was but a tiny lad
For me, after the Black Album
To me, even if Mustaine and Friedman are techinally better players than Dimebag, most of their solos never really made any impression on me. Personally it feels like the solos were just there cause the song needed a solo (with a few exceptions). With Dimebag, the solos gets stuck in my head and I find myself several times reversing back in the song to hear the solo again. Most of Kirk solos are all very well composed and well played in my opinion, I don't see what all the fuzz is about.
Yeah I have to agree, cause yeah, Dime was one of the first guitarist I ever heard where I was popped a boner for no reason...kinda' weird, so I'm pretty much biased in his favor
I like Friedman over Mustaine though.
Friedman is in a whole other league, no reason to compare him with the trio originally mentioned.
Out of the trio mentioned. Hammett's mainstream longevity and ever changing style > Dimebag and Mustaine
Pure metal rhythm and solos goes to Dimebag
As a singer/songwriter/guitarist.....Mustaine> *
How well played his solos might have been, none of them really left an impression on me unlike Dimebags and Kirks solos.
Btw, isn't kinda awkward that Pantera only had one guitarist while most traditional metal bands tend to have 1 rhythm and 1 lead guitarrist. On the studio albums you wouldn't notice it anyway since Dimebag would played both rhytm and lead guitarr. Naturally a lot of songs sounded a bit differently when performed live though.
they still fucking raped during live shows, saw them in 2000
Oh snap, you did? Lucky fuck!
One of the things I love about Pantera is that they never sold out. Instead they made quite the opposite; they just went harder and more aggressive for each album they released.
Which is your favourite album by them btw?
all three are great! damn hard to choose i like em all.
Marty Friedman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> all of those choices.
I'm not really sure how good Dimebag is before I didn't listen to Pantera all that much.
And I know Friedman did many of Megadeth's solos, so I'm not sure exactly what parts Mustaine was playing so I can't compare him against Hammett.
Actually, I agree with everything you said.
Dime was a great player, but there is no one who could write a metal riff like Dave Mustaine. As a lead player, Dime is the best out of the list. Dave is the best rhythm player. Don't get me started on Kirk.
