This is an urban legend that has never been verified. The more common version of this story has a reporter asking Jimi Hendrix this question. Actually, from what I've heard, Clapton generally has a reputation for not being very humble.

If you have ever heard Steve Vai or Joe Satriani, imagine their technical ability tripled.
I spent a while trying to learn Caprice #24, and I got some of it down, but there were a couple variations that were just WAY too hard for me. Anyway, I've never heard of Jason Becker, but I do know that Eliot Fisk (an incredible classical guitarist) has recorded a CD of all 24 caprices.

Jason Becker is an electric guitarist. So he plays the caprices with sweep and alternate picking rather than finger picking. I know he has done the 5th caprice and the 24th caprice. He's probably done all of them, but I've only heard those two. He's done much more difficult solos, but I thought someone would recognize the caprices more than that.

outlawnemesis,

Obviously you didn't read my postes good enough, I said I wasn't judging on guitar riffs or anything like that. %^*(#$ guitar riffs, anyone can play a guitar riff. Btw I've heard of Dream Theater and even heard them.

Everyone else,

Ok, and now to set the record straight, I can play bass, I mean I CAN PLAY BASS been doing it for 7 years, and I've been playing guitar for about a year and a half to 2 years. I'm probably not as good as some of you, but I can hold my own. And ok I'll give you guys this, I wasn't really making a "best list", I was just posting guitarist I like, not guitarist I think are good or not, just wether I like their sound are not. So you got, go pat yourselves on the back. I should have post who I really think are good instead of sounding good. I thought who sounds better is better than the guitar riffs and crap. Actually I find very few guitarist that I respect as far as dificulty. Give me a month and I'll learn their riff. So what big deal.

Ringo is in the same boat as B.B. He isn't a great drummer technically, but he sounds really cool. (Check out the subtle fills on "A Day in the Life".) Ringo is one of my all-time favorite drummers.
Actualy, after thinking about it I'd have to agree with you.

For pure technical ability I'd say Malmsteen or Petrucci. One of my personal favorites though is Neil Zaza. He plays all instrumental, mostly doing clinics and stuff but he has a few CDs. I like him because he plays songs rather then just solos.

Go have a listen to some Neil Zaza

I'm a bassist too. I've been playing for...it'll be 4 years in March 2003. I have a little thing I wrote for bass. Here try it out.

Here's the tabs for it

Here's a recording of me playing it...quality sucks though

Happy Bassing.

Ooooh... NICE! I've got a friend who's been playing bass for... 3 years I think... but he's good. I'll have to see if he can play that, lol.

but your bass was out of tune when you recorded it
Hmmm, I guess it was. It comes out of tune alot right when you put on a new set of strings. I don't even have a tuner either. I need to get one.

Thats pretty good bro. I've never really played around with type of music before. I'm really into funk when it comes to bass. But thats still pretty good man.


But yeah to everyone else I hope you know I was joking when I made this thread. Creed's guiarist is a okay guitarist in reality definitely not the best. Jon from switchfoot he's decent too, but come on. Did no one see that I was being sarcastic a little?

Funk? Have you ever played an EB/MM Stingray Bass? Those are supposed to be great for funk. I've never played one myself, but I'd love to. The only downside I hear is that they have a weak bottom end...but I prefer more treble in my bass mix anyway. Funk is pretty fun to play, especially when you get tight in a great groove with the kick and snare. It's like you control the song.

Neither was I.

Maybe you should have made that clear from the beginning.

Do you have a mic to record with? Learn the first verse riff of Megadeth's Holy Wars...The Punishment Due. I want to hear you play it. Just riff, no solos.

Or, for a second option, play the riffs in Megadeth's Take No Prisoners. Just riffs, no solos.

Of course, riffs are so incredibly easy, this should only take you a couple of days. The hardest part should be the memorization factor, and even that isn't too hard if at all. I'm really interested in hearing these recordings.

Well I own a washburn 24 fret bass, and I love it. I like Fenders too cause most of them, the strings are farther from the body.

Oh, you like the higher-action. I like lower-action for tapping and such.
