when u look at a lot of guitarists in great modern bands and even past bands the stuff they play isn't exactly the most complex and difficult anyways. i mean 80's speed metal was pretty intense, but most rock is pretty easy but it still sounds awesome. so it's not really about speed or skill, its about getting a feel from it and doing what rock and roll is best at doing, going agaisnt what everybody else is doing - even though mainstream culture has changed this a bit. Skill isn't what being a good guitarist is necessarily about, it's about makin the instrument your own and therefore, by the sounds of it, you're a better guitarist then him.
