Both of them do so within their genre in appropriate situations.

Look, I'm not saying that the guy isnt a quality player. He is obviously very talented. I wouldnt say the same for Yngwie. BUT, that is a wanktastic solo you produced there.

A great player, IMO, evokes emotions. Whether its Gilmour's one-note-wonders, BB King's simple bending, or Steve Howe's furious chopping.

The best players are the ones who recognize how much just one note can do.

I always liked Tony Levin's discussion on that subject.
