I think shredders like Malmsteen, Satch and Vai are cool and all, but I really prefer creativity, and melodic, nice sounding music. Which is why, although Eruption is impressive, id much rather listen to Voodoo Chile. The reason Hendrix is always regarded at 1 is because the guy was creative as hell, and made beautiful music with his guitar. Not because of his technical Skill. Jimmy Page needs to be mentioned to. he rocks the hizzy.
