Both can play great solos. Im not going to vote because I really dont have a clear opinion. Mikes solos are really bluesy and quite tricky. Also full of a wide variety of techniques etc. Peters, however a little simpler, still sound just as great.
Yeah that solo gave me a tent in my pants.Peter, just because he plays the Deliverance solo which is the best fucking solo ever recorded...
Liquid Diamonds said:Much as I think Peter is a very astute guitarist... Mike has, to my ears, a musicality about his solos that I don't think I've ever heard matched. Sure, he's not a technical wizard like Joe Satriani or John Petrucci... but Mikes solos speak to me. They sing. They are beautiful. Peter must be commended though, for having a good sense of pace. We can always rely on Peter to throw in a solo at a really pacey part of a song and keep it going just right. I think that they're styles are very different and easily distinguishable. But I have to say... Mike IS the superior musician... there's just no way around that.
Peter still owns though.
HaloPhenomenon said:ofcourse mikael will get more votes since he is the frontman and the one people praise... i think that peters best solo beats mikaels best solo...anyway this is a fucking stupid thread and steven wilson beats them both when it comes to soloing.
