Yngwie Malmsteen vs. Kurt Cobain...which do YOU like better?

Which guitarist do you like better?

Base this on what you think of their guitar playing.

Not even a contest. I'm more of a riff guy than a solo guy, so Kurt wins in about a planet's worth of landslides. Even when Malmsteen riffs, it sounds like a solo. And even when Kurt solos, it sounds like a riff.

I definitely do dig on Malmsteen though. There's no shame in being the best at what you do. Some say he's too technical... I say somebody's gotta be at the top of the technical heap, there's room for all kind of guitar playing out there.

Kurt. Malmsteen does his thing with virtuoso like talent. Problem is, I hate what he does. It does nothing for me. I'd much rather hear someone with less technical proficiency that makes me feel something than to hear someone that plays like Yngwie does but leaves me bored.

Is this poll only for people who met both of them?

The first time I heard Yngwie he totally blew me away, but I got over it very quickly. He crams too many notes into a space.

Agreed. This is a perfect example of feel vs technique. For me, Kurt plays with feeling and passion while Yngwie, probably the most technically proficient guitarist in the world in terms of playing scales and playing fast, just leaves me cold....guitar for guitar sake music.
