For the record, I love Richie's playing. He's one of the big influences on my own guitar playing over the past 25 years and more.

However, technique-wise, he's a good all-round blues-rock player who has a few 'tricks'. That's all. Of course, he has done some good solos, some of them very tuneful. Although I always wonder how much of that is the guitarist and how much is down to the producer saying 'play this bit here' (not just on Bon Jovi albums either...I have a hunch this could have been a very common thing in the world of 80's rock and probably is now as well.) He never really was into the 'hair thing' as he proved from Keep The Faith onwards, when the blues-rock licks predominated (check out the VERY generic solo on This Ain't A Love Song...' Very generic, but still works a treat!)

Technique-wise, The Edge is very limited, but he more than makes up for that by his astonishing creativity with layers of sound via the delay FX, etc.

It's all about playing to one's strengths really...
