I am a big Metallica fan, but... I have started listening to Megadeth recently, and I have discovered that Megadeth solos are just very different from Metallica. I find them generally more melodic (if this is the right word) while Metallica have a lot of very fast and technical leads. However, if speaking specifically about Kirk vs Dave, I must admit that their playing styles rather similar. There are some differences of course, but they are not that significant. As far as my favorite solos by the two guitarists, they are:

Kirk: Unforgiven, Master of Puppets, Through The Never, Fade To Black
Dave: Five Magics, Holy Wars, Wake Up Dead (2nd)

My vote goes to Kirk just because I find his solos more beautiful, and he has more of those that I really like besides then ones I mentioned.

When I talk about my favorite solos, I am usually guided by how well they fit into a song and by melody (speed is not that important).

Talk about your favorite solos, so that there is no milk and water in your posts and so that we know what you are guided by when you pick one guitarist over the other. So I would like to know your opinion about who is better and why, and... vote! But please don't expand this thread to Metallica vs Megadeth battle; it's not what it was meant to be. Solos, just solos.

dave mustaine is more talented imo. i never respected hammet as i respectwed mustaine.
and why you are comparing a true heavy metal guitarist with a nu metal one? its like comparing Jack Owen of Deicide and Munkey of Korn (joking) he is a good one, maybe if he would left metallica and make up his own band he would be more successful as mustaine is.

yeah, because Kirk is SUCH a nu-metal guitarist...

i realize it was a (LAME) attempt a joke on your part, but even still your post is a colossal failure even on a comedic front.

while Kirk might have gotten boring with/since the black album, i don't think Dave can match what he did on "Master of Puppets" or "Ride the Lightning" albums. The technique plus emotion in tracks like "Master of Puppets", "Fade to Black", etc is just amazing.

Didn't vote, but just posted to retort to the last post.

Voted Kirk. I know it will probably not be the more popular of the two choices, but his solos are insane. So are Dave's, and it's a close one. Kill 'Em All had the best solos. Dave can kick it when the time is right, but Kirk is shreddy-mcshredz as far as straight solos is concerned. He is definitely the more technically skilled of the two, but I really like his solos a bit better.

also voted for kirk
to me there's no better guitarist. when he plays the solo's, you always see him play with to much emotion yet so technical...
on the other hand, I'm not such a mustaine fan. It's because - according to me - he doesn't 'live' megadeth... I mean, if tomorrow metallica would say bye to kirk or james and would ask dave to join, he wouldn't doubt one second to say 'yes'. This is clearly shown in interviews and in 'some kind of monster'.
no offence to megadeth fans, what I just said doesn't affect his guitar skills, but when I see him play I miss the emotion...

I can't help agreeing with you. I have recently downloaded That One Night, and when Mustaine was playing his solos, it was totally lacking zeal (if this is a right word). I couldn't watch that show till the end. I wonder how Mustaine had performed in the early years. I still haven't made my mind on who is better despite being a die-hard Metallica fan. Ok, I want more comments!!!

Dave isn't bad, but he isn't anything compared to Captain Kirk. Kirk Hammett was the first metal guitarist I was into, and still one of my favorites.

I vote Dave. I mean, Kirk is a great musician, he was even given lessons by Joe Satriani. BUT, I just like Dave's solos better. They tend to be more intresting, and more creatively done. Most solos that Kirk whips out are your model example of a generic thrash solo. Sure, he is the one who set that standard (or one of the ones, anyway) but I just think Dave's way cooler.

imo metallica is more divided, hetfield plays the easy slow solos and kirk the hard ones. the bad thing is kirk goes full-speed and generally does nothing else. mustaine, while not the guitarist with the best 'feeling' play, i believe outclasses hammett because he doesn't sound that monotonous, and is at least equal in technique with him, if not better(listen to the final solo's of Hangar 18)

aand to all the kirk fans: remember that The Four Horsemen and Call of Ktulu are mostly written by (guess who?)

Dave actually plays in more than E Minor. Kirk is one of the most boring guitarists I have ever heard. His playing is average, and just hyped up. Why do people think he is so great?

Yay, This was one of the best statements about Kirk Hammet; In my opinion he is a kind of overrated player! (Metallica fans stay calm, that's my opinion )

Exactly! I really dig Metallica myself. Heck, Load is actually my favorite album from them. But Kirk Hammet is really nothing special.

Exactly, Dave Mustaine must be compared with someone like Chuck Schuldiner from Death and Hammet must be compared with someone like Munkey from Korn
