Jeff Loomis

Born in 1971, Jeff Loomis sent a tape to metal band Sanctuary when he heard they had lost their guitarist. He got the job, but it was not slated to be a long-lasting one. The group broke up two months later. However, as the ashes of Sanctuary were clearing, Loomis, along with two other members of the group, formed the band Nevermore. ~ Gary Hill, Rovi

Comments

Marty Freidman and Jeff Loomis.
A collaboratio n I would love to hear.
Loomis is eargasmic
His technique is true metal
Jeff Loomis is an artist that really surprised me when first listening. I had expect another knockoff session dude, but damn was I wrong. Much respect Mr. Loomis! :) - Keep on Rockin' in the Free World!
Perfect playlist to listen to when studying
An absolutely amazing guitarist, one of the best I've ever heard!
Indisputable talent

The best ones are the humble ones. Per nielsson is sick too.

If we are talking about guitar gods then TOSIN ABASI takes the cake!
nicko what about dimebag Darrel from pantera i think he was a guitar god also
By far one of my top favorite groups for instrumental bands. Right up next to angel vivaldi. However. Vivaldi has the double kick that makes my heart amd sould thrive to mosh. This only makes me want to head bang
Everybody who has left previous comments lick my balls!
I definitely agree with Nicko, no two guitarists are the same. I love hearing how each puts their personality in their music. Loomis' skill never ceases to amaze!!
nicko252008

Finally a mature voice! I applaud you.

Buckethead, Gilbert, Joe Bonamassa, Malmsteen, Joe Stump, Vai, Petrucci, Satriani, Loomis, they are all Guitar GODS in there own right. Please don't compare how one is better than the other, it's childish. And especially for people who don't play the guitar like them. Have some respect, Nobody plays the same.
I never heard of these progressive metal band or is it metal core. ???

I wonder what it would be like to shout FIRE while at a funeral
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Can't wait to see him again in concert. Dude fukin jams!

Much as I can appreciate his mastery of both instrument and style, I have to say my favorite guitarists are still John Petrucci (listen to how he plays the final solo in 'Comfortably Numb') and Dave Weiner (plays everything from jazz to metal and all points between and has the skill, talent, and diversity to back up Steve Vai) even after watching him perform live and meeting him at GearFest '12
Loomis is a Nasty metal guitar player, dude shreds!!
i have a slap-bass
i put it in my a** and slap chords with my balls
this is way better than anything i can do

Guitar is not a genre. These artists everyone are comparing are not even the same genre other than they shred. All if them do. They are better than anyone commenting on here. Get their amount of recognition playing an instrument then you can say "to hell with SRV" (why you would say this is unclear) otherwise you are just telling us what genre you like.

All people do is generalize and compare things that are not even similar. If you have ever listened to Loomis in his earlier work, then you should know what to expect. Searing and soaring metal instrumental s . Its literally Nevermore without Dane.
You can glorify Loomis all you want, truth is he's good enough to roll with the big dogs Vai, Satch, Petrucci, Cooley, Malmsteen, Batio, whatever. But Loomis is all about the metal instrumental s . Most of the aforemention e d musicians can play metal as well as several other genres. Being a guitarist, understandin g how to play another genre after you've mastered one is like learning another language after mastering English. Old habits betray you, it's not easy at all. That's why they're better.
Petrucci=God . Period.
Loomis is awesome but better than Rusty Cooley or John Pettruchi ? come now
Ron Jarzombek owns them All!
Loomis or Petrucci. top 2 period.
Buckethead or John 5 taught him every thing he knows
F**K Steve Vai and Joe Satch Jason Becker and that little b**ch malmsteen, THEY ALL WILL BOW BEFOR LOOMIS
Nobody on hear should be commenting on his guitar skills here unless they play themselves. Yes Steve Vai and Joe Satch may have more feeling behind their music but Jeff is just more well rounded, more intricate and ridiculously clean. From a guitarists point of view, Loomis is quite possibly the best DISCOVERED lead guitarist alive right now. There will always be someone just as good if not better though. Best rhythm guitar skills go to Keith Merrow though. I've said my piece.
I'm from Wisconsin and jeff lived up the road from me.very humble awesome guy.nothing but praise from me
mrkinz
Long Live Shrapnel Records!
mrkinz
He's awesome, check out Joop Wolters my latest find

All the awesomness of Nevermore without the weird vocals!
This guy is great. best guitarist of all time goes to Jason Becker, the hell with via satch and srv
Shredding!! This dude rocks, I wish I was half as good as this.
@Drosa398 Cause someone was trolling further down in the comment section.
dont get the nirvana comparison either ? what the fuh
psycher1
...Why on earth did anybody just compare this to Nirvana?!
This is the new standard of shredding, players that can write a riff not just the solo!
WOW......THI S DUDE IS BADD A**!!!! IM HOOKED ON ANOTHER GREAT SHREDDER.... N I C E .
jtack1979
Check this riff it's F**K-inin TAS -ty
pales in comparison to kurt cobain...... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . curt could write a song, too bad he couldnt play guitar. loomis kicks cobain square in the nuts. no disrespect, i am a nirvana fan, but when kurt was practicing hitting the vein, loomis was practicing guitar.
I was looking at memebase and the song Opulent Maelstrom started when this did http://senor g i f . m e m e b a s e . c o m / 2 0 1 2 / 0 5 / 1 9 / f u n n y - g i f s - c a t - c a r / Great Moments made by Jeff Loomis: Infinite.

JATO is an acronym for jet-fuel assisted take off - they are basically rocket boosters that assist overloaded aircraft in taking off or any aircraft to achieve enough forward thrust for flight on a runway that would normally be 'too short' for the aircraft.
Plains of Oblivion came out 3 days ago and it's already uploaded to Pandora.

There's no way Spotify can compete with that.
