      Since both of you are guitarists what do you think this compilation videos of these two guitarists in Love Bites? JMO but the Scorpions , Deep Purple or any metal band would be envious of their great guitar work.

      They can shred for sure… drummer has some killer fills…

      The sound is fantastic so tip your sound tech

      Very technical. Lots of hammer ons and pull offs in their runs. Lots of speed sweep picking.

      Missing personality, but that might be “their thing”.

      As said, from a technical aspect, extremely impressive.

      And, that drummer too!

      Always struggled with flutter picking but so much of it is having great sustain through gain/distortion

      I was equally impressed with their harmony work together on those runs.

      Yeah. Forgot to mention that.

      Great octave work and impressive harmonization on the runs.

      Agree “heavy metal” not mine either but I put them above punk, glam, grunge, rap, and most of today’s top 40. I like Band Maid better despite the ability of the two guitarists who play so well together.

      Agreed with rap and today’s top 40. Both are jokes.

      That being said, I wouldn’t necessarily put them ahead of glam, grunge, or punk as a whole.

      Way, way, way too many talented bands/artists in those genres.

        I was 7 when it came out and probably like 12 when I actually become a Nirvana fan (after his death). Knew them but didn’t start loving rock until 10 or 12…

        Yes I’m sure there is some Nostalgia baked in but this is one of the best albums ever, and the production by Butch Vig is studied in studio engineering courses world wide.

        They were the Beatles of the 90s

      Strong assertion there. Do we go by album sales? or perhaps Rolling stone that ranks them 6th all time over all of the Beatles except Abbey ROAD at 5th? It should be noted that Marvin Gayes “What’s going on” was rated #1? Personally though I might disagree with the order this list looks more credible.

      The reason I asked for your age is because R&R has always been looked down upon when it replaced pop with teenager’s adoration of it in the late 50’s. Its death was widely reported by the media about the time the British invasion practically wiped out corporate American R&R music.
      JMO but each decade shows a rejection of whatever one’s parents like. Nowhere near as bad today as in the past because despite its predicted demise it is still going strong 60 years later

      Good list. All of us would obviously make some changes here and there.

      But, the meat of it looks good.

      Highway Star?

      Back to Love Bites. You hear the Scorpions and Blackmore influence on this tune. Think I underrated the lead singer. Good lyrics and melody

      We will choose to disagree on some. How many of those solos were created before 1972?
      Scorpions “No one like you”?

      Did you listen to Love Bites?

      Out of my league since I am not a guitarist. Too broad of a topic. Would you say the difficulty
      of playing a certain guitar solo yourself would be a factor? I do feel that the instrument has grown tremendously in terms of virtuosity for R&R over the years. Ever listen to JOHNNY WINTERS
      The progressive blues experiment?

      Well I think of Hendrix and his best solos aren’t his best songs…

      Castles Made of Sand or Little Wing are incredible songs, hard to play but minimal solo.

      Then I think of some solos that aren’t the hardest but are the best… Hey Joe and Wind Cries Mary have great “simple” solos.

      All Along the Watchtower has that iconic solo…

      Then Machine Gun and Red House have the hardest solos but aren’t his best songs…

      😘

      How do you listen to music videos? Just curious.

      I have a pair of powered Behringer 2 way speakers with a JBL powered woofer signal run from the computer.<br />

      Hmm…

      Honestly, I just run them from the speakers in my MacBook Pro.

      But, if I’m playing a backing track from YouTube that I want to jam too…I’ll run the laptop through my Helix and QSC monitor.

      8. Comfortably Numb – Gilmour

      Glad to see this in the list. I was just watching “Live at Gdańsk”

      One thing to make a guitar sing in a studio but to achieve the same precision live. Wow

      Top 10 guitar songs/riffs in no order

      Crazy Train – Ozzy
      One – Metallica
      While My Guitar Gently Wheeps – Beatles
      Layla – Clapton
      Free Bird – Sykynrd
      Texas Flood – Stevie
      Sultans of Swing – Dire Straights
      Jesus Christ Pose – Soundgarden
      Every Hendrix song
      Every Zep song

      There’s too many songs… I’ve ignored songs that don’t have a solo but you could put songs like Chop Suey, Black Hole Sun, Smells Like Teen Spirit…

      Oh and a super under-rated song/solo: My Sharona

      That solo is one of my favorite ever…
