Hey there guys!
We all know that everyone has their own short list of favorite musicians. Most of them inspired us to start playing musical instruments and we may use them as role models and learn from them. Topics about most favorite musicians exist on every music-related forum. And how about sharing your least favorite musicians? Those who disappointed you at some point. Let's not mention our neighbors or "that guy from the show last night" and focus on those more or less famous.
Recently I had a "pleasure" to pick up a Destruction song by ear. As one of the most iconic German Thrash Metal bands they sure have their own sound which in their case is raw. It didn't help me so I had to slow the track down a little and split in mono channels. What I heard there was awful their Guitarist didn't bother himself with matching the guitar parts, sometimes he simply skipped notes and acted rather random. So Mike Sefinger from Destruction is one of my least favorite guitarists now.
Another one I'd like to mention is not a celebrity but a well known person for those who belong to youtube guitar community. I'm talking about Rob Scallon. I'm subscribed to his channel, I adore his precise technique and his comedy videos, but I can't stand his original music. Utilizing tapping, slap and and finger picking he, as I see it, focuses more on complexity rather than composition.
Now your turn, guys. And remember, everything is IMHO, so don't get much into argument =)
