Which do you prefer? The frusciante thread got me thinking, he is one of my favorite guitarists to listen to, not super technical, but his main focus is making it sound good, and he does a great job of that. A lot of technical stuff just doesn't sound good to my ears as it seems they are trying way to hard. Arpeggio runs require a lot of practice and technical ability, but does that sound good at the end of the day? Different strokes for different folks?
