kinda polless, but satch is good at the ol' legato but it gets boring VERY quickly.

When steve does the potato head "tapping" bit on the way down the neck on tender surrender is some SICK legato

of course ol' EVH gets a mention

last and of course least.

ME!

I agree , satch is a great legato player , but he has weaknesses in his legato playing imo , especially when playing live , imo , allan , tj helmerich and brett garsed play legato flawlessly , another thing with satch is , again , IMO , sometimes he struggles to execute his legato runs , so he gets his trem out and does dive bombs and stuff...but anyway , who am i to talk , he kicks the sh*t out of me

Holdsworth, Garsed, and Kotzen

and I agree w/ Anton about Satch.....Satch is good but doesn't hold a candle to the other three mentioned above....not even close

When everyone says Kotzen.....I must ask...which era??

Don't get me wrong.....I love Kotzen's playing....through all the years.

But his 1991 REH "Rock Chops" instructional video playing.....and his 1999 with Mr. Big playing are two different things.

Kotzen, like Paul Gilbert has said himself that his video for REH is simply "guitar masturbation" with no feel or soul...just fast licks.

When Kotzen joined Poison in 1993 for the Native Tongue album (possibly Poison's best album?? as Michael's voice never sounded better before (or after) , and the musicians were worried more about the music than hair and make-up.....he purposely through the Ibanez's in the closet, grabbed his trusty Fender Telecaster....and tried to purposely "be sloppy" on that album....in his own words "I was tired of wammy bars and speed licks, my technique was at its best, but it lacked so much feel.....I decided to go for more of a Jimmy Page thing".

Kotzen has never played like his "Rock Chops" era video since he recorded Native Toungue.

My point? I think Satch plays more legato stuff now than Kotzen.....but Kotzen has added some very tasty soul "slop" to his playing that Paul Gilbert just doesn't have.....I liked Kotzen better with Mr. Big than Gilbert.
