THE GREAT KAT
From rock legends and fictional six-stringers to retail wannabes and the Devil - with callouts to and riffs from today's hottest players-our highly subjective classification of the guitar-hero galaxy!
No two guitarists are alike. That's why we've customized a star for each player in our infographic. Musicians were scored from 1-10 (1 being good, 10 being godlike) using five criteria: shreditude, volume, emotion, originality, and technique. The length of each point in the star corresponds to the player's score in each criteria. The stars are also colored according to scores, e.g., score best for volume, get a red star. If a player scored equally well among multiple attributes, we assigned a color based on the one that we felt was key. Now start stargazing!
