@Profworm I hadn't heard of Jeff Loomis till your post. I`m listening to him on YouTube in another tab right now, and he`s great! Thanks for the tip!

Slash is kinda meh to me. He's certainly no god. When it comes to technical skill, he doesn`t hold a candle to Batio, Satch, Vai, or Paul Gilbert, and creatively he`s far short of Clapton, Page, Fripp, or Steve Howe. He`s just a better-than-average picker, and that`s about it.

I'm not going to jump in on bashing Slash, because there`s plenty of room in music for people who don`t cater to my tastes.

But if we`re going to start listing off other great guitar players, I have to toss in Jeff Loomis. Great shredder, and he writes good music. Plus he doesn`t cheat like Malmsteen and just repeat himself over and over. Not saying he`s not incredibly skilled, but it all sounds the same.

Ok patchouly, maybe replace rock god, with Icon. Either way, he's had a huge footprint in the rock world. Without a doubt he isn`t the most technical or talented player. I also agree that he isn`t in the same league as Paige or Clapton, but if I heard someone call him a rock god, I wouldn`t argue.

Jealous? No. Just aware of where he sits in the scheme of things. Also, as far as "rock Gods" go, I would say it take a certain degree of soul. So while Vai etc. can play fast, I have to agree with Smagboy in that I can only listen to so much of it. For me, it's players like Gilmour, Clapton, Page etc. that have the feel, unlike anyone else. Those guys are guitar gods.
Slash, while a great guitar player, just never wrote any riffs that were worthy of that title.
