The riff-god, the metal-voice (all the cool albums at least) Mr. Hetfield.

According to me their best guitarist should be the drummer or the bassist...
no! maybe one of the crew techs! :wink:
anyway I'd say Mustaine too, but maybe no one liked him in the band... :roll:

When talking about composing music & writing songs...Hetfield is better. When it comes to actual guitar playing Hammett is definetly the better one. 8)

I would probably pick James Hetfield.
He plays a mean solo on nuthin else matters. Proves he can shred.
Kirk is good. But James can play both lead and awesome rythum.
A better guitar player in my book.

Hammet sounds like every other run of the mill metal shredder. Hetfield has got a voice of his own on the guitar.

Hammet knows a few more tricks on the guitar but imo that doesn't make him the better player.

Don't sell other shredders that short. Hammett sucks.
