Two gutiar players who are similar yet different, both play the guitar Tongue, both are blues based, both use all the four fingers in soloing and chording, and are articulate, neither use flash but their skills (if not classiclal trained) share a sence of modesty and respect towards the guitar as something more then a piece of wood, but a tool to make people cry or pee their pants in fright, both can play balls to the walls riff but also, plucking, picking, and have nice vibratos, and sustaine technique, both even have a signature vibrato which you know when newer guitarists pull them of that its from their Immoi or Gilmour pocket, (Kim Thaiyl has a large Iommi pocket and Steven Wilson have a large Gilmour pocket).
 
Both also are sort of godfathers to certain genres, Iommi to metal Gilmour to space/psych rock, (as Fripp is to prog) though more guitarist have contributed to psych rock sound, pysch/space is Gimours child, (sort of)

Both.

It depends on my mood.

I'm a fan of both bands.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Technically, I doubt that Iommi would even say he was the more proficient.

If it is a beauty contest, then it rather depends upon whether you prefer Floyd or Sabbath. I love them both, but prefer Floyd.

Therefore, Gilmour on both counts.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Both.
When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.
