I hear you, Mattal, but like G4B said it's all in what you like. For example, I would be the first to say that Eddie VanHalen is a more proficient guitar player than Paul (or George, John), but I don't like it nearly as much. So, what is better? For me, Paul's is (as is George's and John's). It's what I value in the music that makes the choice easy. I don't value high speed, classically inspired guitar playing, no matter how proficient the player is. Same thing can be applied to piano playing. Yes, Elton is more proficient than Paul, but the question really is...does that make him better? I say no, cause Elton's playing doesn't appeal to me as much as Paul's.I love Paul's 'dance hall style' playing. I'm impressed by any great ability to play, but the most skilled effort doesn't always translate for me.
