Sid McGinnis or Dave Weiner question?

Is there typecasting with guitarist as there is with actors or will these guys turn into the Gilligan's of guitar? Always a bridesmaid never a bride...

Some people are better in the background, they may not belong up front...

If you've ever listened to Dave's own music, then you'd realize that the only reason he was a rhythm guitarist in Vai's band, was the fact that the other guitarist in the band was Steve Vai.

Dave is an incredible player, his first CD is an incredible piece of work, absolutely brilliant playing....you should check it out. Very cool stuff.

Hi Surf,

Re: Sid McGinnis or Dave Weiner question?

I would definitely say that Dave has his own guitar voice.

Re: Sid McGinnis or Dave Weiner question?

I find his playing boring! But he is very good. And, I think his sound is flat.

I would, but that's my opinion. Judge for yourself.

Scott Ian also had a Jackson sig, but I take it you dont like responses that dont back up your original post.
