I was reading comments on a youtube video, and two people were going back and forth, arguing if BM was a guitar god.
One said that guitar gods are the rockers who shred and do really fast stuff for five minutes. The other claimed that there's more to a guitar god, and that it's self serving to needlessly shred everything.

Your thoughts? Don't be all bias or anything. "I love Brian!" is a well-known fact, and has nothing to do w/ the question at hand. Wow I sound anal-retentive. Sorry mates! :)
Cheers!


That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be friends...

Its not how fast you can play(well not really) its what the people listening feel when they here it. Example modern guitar playing is way to fast and you dont remember it long. Whilst guitaring years ago had slow and fast parts and you remembered it. Example pink floyd and the brighton rock solo by brian may. Look at bohemian rhapsody, slower solos but still has been voted the best song ever.

I hate the comments on Youtube.com [Well, in metacafe.com it's even worse], because there are lots of people talking without knowing.

Well, here goes. According to the Queenzone Dictionary, Guitar God = Brian May. And there you have it. :-) I know, I know, too easy...I could not resist, mate.

Probably doing stuff that is nearly impossible on the guitar. Almost all my guitarist friends said they can't play all of Brighton Rock. Or maybe it's just them? Also the fact that he built his own guitar helps too. ;)
