zakk wylde was a guitar for ozzy at one point. he had some awesome solos. some are on youtube. but angus young has more pieces (of music) that are more recognizable. both are skilled but angus young is a lot more entertaining to watch. so i say angus young
Comparing Zakk and Angus is like comparing an Sg to a Martin - two totally differnt styles of guitar. Zakk is one of the best shredders in the world and he has his scales down, Angus isnt a shredder, he has feeling in all of his soloing and riffs. but all around i like soul in the guitar so i say Angus, hands down.
that is funny how every one has said Angus, although it is no suprise, he is a great soloist, and he has some really good guitar riffs, zakk wylde however, is a showoffy bitch that triest to impress people with his pinch harmonics, whichi personally think suck, he sounds like he is strangling a cat, and he completely butcher's all of randy Rhoads's guitar pieces, ZAKK SUCKS, ANGUS RULES
Two Diffrent styles here to deal with. I think Angus is by far technnical better than Zach. If you look at what Angus can acompilish just through his use of the use of straight ahead pentatonic scale stuff with minimal effects you have to agree that he kicks Zachs ass because in this case Angus is the best when it comes to a less is more standpoint. If Zach would go to a style that diddn't utilize all the pyrotechnics he empolys I think he would be lost. Don't get me wrong I am not bashing Zach here. I just think he lost sight of what other guys consider tryly a signature sound. Angus on the other had only has to hit a note or two and you know it is him.
