who do you think are the most technical and fast guitarists that still sound awesome?
mine are:

1. john petrucci
2. guthrie govan
3. bucketehad
4. shawn lane
5. jeff loomis (although i'm new to him and still find his music a little too hectic and scary)

yes i know that being able to play fast isn't what music is about but speed is just another tool in the music toolbox :-P

1-Shawn lane
2-Guthrie govan
3-Steve morse
4-John petrucci
5-Chris broderick
6-Michael angelo batio

I can mention some of mine, but not in any specific order, except that the fact
Petrucci = my god!

Else than that:

Steve Vai - some cheesy music, but he`s insanely good, and plays it so easily)
Muris Varajic - Muris is up with the A-team as well, without a doubt
Guthrie Govan
Yngwie Malmsteen - the developer of shred?
Steve Morse - the worlds most versatile guitar player?
Satriani - I feel he cares more about the music than the shred, even though he`s kicking most peoples asses techniqual wise aswell)
Andy Mckee - not a shredder, but wild technique
Paul Gilbert - black belt in string skipping
Michael Angelo - I just find him entertaining while shredding at the quad guitar! If he had two more hands, I bet he`d shred all necks simultanously

and ofcourse: gotte love THIS guy laugh.gif

These are all great technical players and also their music makes sense unlike thousands of meaningless shredders.

Well I also had a list and it went like this:
V Moore, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, G. Govan... but since I'm on GMC (and see some unbelievably good players) I would call them just guitarist I like to listen to.

Hahaha, I wanted to make a joke about some awful guitarist myself, but couldn`t come up with any good name on the spot tongue.gif

Totally agree. Though he has 2 square meters with pedals, he`s keeping his tone way under the high-gain level. Something I believe requires much more precision and strong articulation when playing (which he has tons of cool.gif )

If there is something that bores me to death then it is people playing ultra fast and technical only for the sake of doing it, or showing off. A single bent note with a good vibrato means much more to me than scales played at the speed of light. But thats all a matter of taste I guess.

Well said Marcus. And also that single note is more difficult to execute properly than 30 notes per second smile.gif

It's really a personal preference but I prefer some slow and cool SRV blues solo than some crazy Rusty Cooley style of shredding. I like to play fast stuff but I also try to make my melody with some logical structure. Most modern shredders are playing random notes and weird scale shapes in the speed of light. That's something that I do respect but not necessarily enjoy when it comes to musicality.

David Gilmour is my favorite guitarist, and we can not say he is shredder smile.gif, but I really enjoy his style of playing guitar

from what I saw Shawn Lane!
Being technical doesn't just mean you can play fast, but Shawn has universal picking, good for EVERYTHING!
