Tony Iommi or Jimmy Page?
 
I think it's a good comparison. They have pretty similar styles. I prefer Iommi's electric guitar playing. I guess I would say that Page is the overall better player when you consider his acoustic playing, but Iommi didn't play much acoustic so it's kind of hard to compare there. I've asked my friends about this and they all easily choose Page. I don't think they're giving Iommi a chance. I pick Iommi.

What do ya'll think?

Well that depends what you're asking. I'd prefer Iommi. Page is fine but he's boring. He doesn't create much of a moon on his own. And I'm no dope, Butler gave a lot to Sabbaths sound, but Page owes a lot to JPJ.

Iommi was more innovative, he was more mood oriented, he was less douchey. Its a personal preference.

Geezer and JPJ were both great bass players. Iommi certainly was less douchey. Of course it's personal preference. And that's what I'm asking. Who do you personally prefer and think is the better guitarist?

I'll go with the less douchey also. Personally i think Page wanks around on guitar and noodles too much for my preference. Iommi certainly had a larger sound and clearly more distorted which i prefer. I'm not discounting what Page did, he obviously was a great influence for many great artists.

Use the poll, man. :laughing:

I love Iommi and his style, his innovation etc. but I believe that Page always plays the right thing. Plus he does provide a lot more variety in his songwriting than Iommi.

I wouldn't go so far as to say Page was douchey personally but when compared to the well rounded coolness of tony iommi I would be tempted to say so.

The worst thing is comparing 2 guitarists that are nothing alike.

Jimmy Page. I think he had much more diversity in his work than Iommi and was a better player in general.
