Mick and Jim are under rated, both are great musicians.

haters will always be haters. no matter how complicated a riff, no matter how much syncopation, rhythm, groove, feeling, speed, aggression, etc that Slipknot can humanly put into their guitars, people will always talk about how they can't play or they have no feeling or they suck or they're clowns or they only play for teenagers or they have no solos or whatever lame ass excuse they can think of. lol if you don't like em don't come to watch the video. simple. go listen to what you think is "real metal"
His accuracy is astonishing!

I met him today in Auckland, New Zealand.... I asked him to take a photo with me and he kindly said yes, such a nice guy.
I'm not a big Slipknot fan, but I will admit, Mick Thomson is one of the best modern rhythm guitar players in metal. I've seen people compare him with Synyster Gates, but Mick is miles ahead of Syn in the rhythm department.
He sucks, just kidding, man.. didnt know he was that good and accurate with every note and harmonics, im starting to really really listen to slipknot and this guys are great talented players
Barney Clifton
Metal is exactly where you will find all the good musicians these days
Henrik Swanström
Dude loves downpicking. Rip forearms.
Brian McNulty
Dude executes the pick attacks hard as hell. Never was a Slipknot fan, but I now understand why Mick Thomson is so well reknowned.

I think he said to his brother: "You can't play like me", then his brother stabbed him.
Gematria is such an underrated riff
Does anyone else feel like Mick is actually holding back on what he can really do??
Evin Paauwe
Gematria is my favorite Slipknot song
All Hope is Gone had some kick-ass riffs going. Hell, I can even say one of the best they've ever wrote. I don't know why they hate that album so much.
always been a fan of Slipknot but it's not often you get to see them playing like this without the theatrics of their live show. videos like this showcase just how great they are. Mick was always my fave guy back in the day. now it's between Mick and Jim because I feel Jim has really come into his own over the last couple of albums.
I'm not a fan but that was pretty awesome.
casey lewis
Mick needs his own signature line of shampoo
Tyler Durden
This is one of the most difficult songs ive ever tried to play
Bradley Hudson
Mick Thompson should be the face of Loreal
Gertrude Perkins
mick is such a fucking legend. this album is so technical its insane
Now I finally know how Mick looks without mask or sunglasses :D
monte lavey
As someome who started playing guitar 3 months ago, Mick is borderline intimidating when he plays guitar.. holy shit.
Shotgun Zombie
they may not do the shred thing, but these dudes don't get enough credit for their chops. respect.
smoke rain
"Oooo slipknot is talentess" That's cute
KicK IT!
I Didn't know Vinnie Paul could play guitar, then again his brother was the greatest guitar player ever. RIP D.B
As a guitarist, am i the only one cringing at the camera guy getting all up around him while recording? like, when im recording or playing, having someone peering over my shoulder or right up by the front of the guitar would really piss me off.
0:32 when she asks if you wanna do something freaky tonight
Mick is one of the greatest guitarists of all time! His technique is mind boggling.
Kevin McGeehan
Mick looks like Vinnie Paul haha
Santtu Pesonen
And the haters say Slipknot can't play for shit...
Jimmy Landa
Jesus Christ. New fan over here.
Ramen Oomori
This is exactly how you should play metal.
Katastrophic Shredder
Mick is fuckin hands down one of the best guitar players out there and the things he has done for Metal and guitar in general is sumthin to be proud of! I look up to this beast of a guitar player 🤘😈🤘
Damn shame they havent played this live.
one of the less guitarists who actually record the song in a play-through and not just part for part
Those are giant strings looks like a 7-8 string....must use heavy gauge strings.
That Joey/Mick/James moment 4:24
Mick Thomson is a god.
SS 70
i hope that guitar was 17
Cayden Ganser
In my opinion Mick and Jim are underrated.
i wish i could play the guitar like that
VJ Escamilla
Wish they showed him traking his solos.
Josh Pelton
I would love for Mick to do a side project that was more extreme than Slipknot
Dick Baguette
Pfft, bet he can't play Smoke on the Water. Because I can't.
jamil quinto
it would be nice if they use 7 string,
Satanic Jukebox
Mick and James are so underrated, especially Mick.
Man, I'm sure the guitar needed a cigarette after that...
Daniel Lopez
Too bad they never played Gematria live ...
is it me or did slipknot get heavier?
6666 likes , 66 dislikes , looks like the devil is real here
roozbeh dilmaghani
i consider my self a good rhythm player , but the riff in the beginning is something! at first glance when you see this guy on stage you may not notice the technique and clarity he has in his rhythm playing but now i see! first riff defiantly need like an hour warm up :)
David Rebollo Sierra
Slipknot should be an instrumental band...
John Webb
you can tell he played these riffs a million times at home, so he would be over prepared for now, thats how i work. Mad respect.
I can't help remembering when the first Slipknot cd came out how so many people dissed them as nu metal, and rap metal wannabes. They couldn't let themselves get past that. I always had a huge respect for their genre defiance. Elements of hip hop, metal, trance etc. In the end they're just fucking heavy as it gets.
Stacy Beck
hes really good.
No Pe
And yet this is people's least favorite Slipknot album
Fil Solano
that's a sweet Ibanez
D TheBassman
I'm not into HEAVY METAL music, the heaviest I get into is the original and the original coining phrase, "heavy metal thunder", by Steppenwolf. I have been playing guitar since 1967 and drums since 1965. With that being said, I do have an appreciation for the staccato timing of these musicians and the way that they apply their craft and trade with their instruments.
Максим Неплох
Hmmm, lost count how many times I've looped this now. :) Love his playing, maybe I'll need to check out slipknot again. Love the guitar sound too, I came here to check out the "articulation" the Riveras provide even with a heavy chug.
Rafael Lago
You don't have to be a Slipknot fan to acknowledge a riff master when you see it.
what the hell song is at 5:05 !!!!! that riff is force!
Is it normal that i have a boner right now?
This man is not a man, this man is a machine
mick=music god comfirmed
Alex Smith
Still not as good as our lord Lil Wayne
Amazing player
Esteban Aguayo
Damn I'm always trash talking Slipknot, but these are some decent riffs. And look tough to play.
John Draughon
How in the purple f*** did so many people dislike this?
Brandon Moore
Damn. I'm not a fan of Slipknot, but this guy has great chops.
Stephen Grabarek
rivera amplification with the nazi sun hieroglyph logo...representing the Pharoah domination that controls the world through the mahat mahan secret combination
I hope that the guitar was legal... Got straight up manhandled haha
Anas Nih
Flawless ..
A B Music n More
Mick is one of the most underrated guitarist of all time .. people call Hetfield the king of downpicking , i beg to differ ...
Johnwhoknows _
Good luck tabbing this out lol
Jake Hill
Oh man I wish they would play more of the underrated songs from AHIG and Vol 3, there's a ton of gems that have never been played live.
Thomas Rose
but can he play smoke on the water? That is the real question.
Vyshawn Foreman
Hell yeah great playing
Holy shit!!!
Trystan Hooper
is that mick or a bear, :-P. I keep coming back to this for inspiration to improve myself as a player; this just an insane display of talent.
K.I.Z Of A Down
But can he play Smoke On The Water?
damn this guy is really good. If only Slipknot had more leads :(
Dr. Zoidberg
How does he do that thing where he's doing all that?
Mick and Jim are such big inspirations for me aswell as many other great musicians ! Hopefully they keep slipknot together
chazz Lucas
All you aspiring guitar players out there take notice of his down picking !!! that is what gives a riff it's heavy sound
Man atee
I really dislike Slipknot as a whole, but I gotta give it to all the musicians, their endurance and accuracy is impressive.
Rooster 7six
Goddamn you've got some fast fingers Mick! And you make it look effortless! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻
it will take 3 lives for me to play like that :p
S Bu
Mick is a beast guitarist
Colin W
Tight precision! Giggity
Jessé Levy Vieira
seems deathcore riffs including some trash metal licks and riffs too
Jan Ryc
Thomson gooo!!!! you King!!!;)
Words can't describe the jealousy I have for Mick's hair and guitar skills ;-; but I love him :D
Underrated guitar player. \../ \../
And they say Slipknot has no talent...
A.N.T. Side
всё таки Мик ахуенно играет!!!
He makes playing those fast, complicated riffs look easy. His rhythm playing is tight as all heck. Reminds me of those intricate riffs Cannibal Corpse plays. You can't be a slouch and play guitar for Slipknot, that's for sure. Just the downpicking alone requires major stamina out the wazoo. My picking arm would feel like it's on fire if I tried to keep up at that speed!
