The Supreme Court ruling on the definition of obscenity is that you know it when you see it.

On the flip side, the same can be said for good art.

As for a good guitar part, one knows it when they hear it. I'm not going to write an essay for you, swa(y), sorry. You idle fuckers have robbed me of too much time already today with all this utter nonsense.

I'll help you out with the mortgage if atari gives us a convincing description of a good guitarist. Either that or I'll babysit your future kids on weekends.

A great guitarist is whoever you think is great. An influential guitarist is an entirely other matter. I saw a student's painting yesterday and with my hand on my heart it was a great piece. If that painting is never shown to the public or if that student never paints another picture then the likelihood of them influencing anybody is practically nil. But that one painting will remain great.

Calling any musician the "best of" always kind of annoys me. I think such comparisons are odious, so, no, would be my answer, too. Great, sure. Best? Don't know or care about that.

So, just to clarify, is Jimi Hendrix the best guitarist ever, or not?

You really are a moron. I don't have to explain anything. There's a whole branch of philosophy called aesthetics that deals with nebulous queries like "what is good art?"

You've just clearly demonstrated that you have no knowledge of aesthetics. My writing comes from a place of having considerable knowledge of aesthetics.

What's the matter? Pissing on Hendrix isn't getting your rocks off enough? You gotta take a shit on philosophy as well now?


You're also a welcher. You owe me one automobile.

jimi hendrix is god

if he were alive, you could stand him up next to any modern guitarist and he would shred in THEIR style better than them, then shred in his style, then shred in a style you nor I have ever seen before, and do it all with efforless grace and aplomb.

jimi hendrix is the greatest electric guitarist ever (of course this is just one man's opinion, as are all statements about who is better best or great)

shiit, Prince is a better guitarist than most of the ones mentioned (barring hendrix of course)

It wouldn't stand up in court anyway. By bringing in the issue of aesthetics Atari acknowledges that no absolute proof yet exists regarding what determines talent.

Case dismissed.

This explains a lot of what the guitar is really about...

talent is definable as an affinity to what you do.

dee dee ramone was NOT a talented guitarist.

most hardcore bands do not have and did not have "talented" guitarists.

what they all lacked in talent they mad eup for in passion and inventiveness and feel.


Jimi had them all, overflowing.

Yes, and either these people are too stupid to realize this or they are just too pig-headed. One almost hopes, for their sake, that it's just pig-headedness and internet cack.

Jimi took it all to a new level. It's elementary.

And this is what I get here. A bunch of lame-brain nonsense from a collection of wackadoos.

luxinterior, a purveyor of thoroughly "safe" posts, suggested that I just stop. Well, she doesn't know what it's like to suffer baseless attack after baseless attack.
