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.

Well said Emir..... smile.gif I can listen to Rusty Cooley for like 10 seconds. I love shred too.....but I need melody to keep me interested. I'm not a big fan of blues though..... laugh.gif

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

And I agree with Emir, I don't have a problem with somebody shredding, I can respect his technical abilities, but this is not something that I also have to like. Don't get me wrong, there are really good shredders, that play stuff that I absolutely love, but if speed is all you have to offer than this is definitely not enough for me.

Yngwie Malmsteen

Can't believe Jason Becker only got one mention. That guy is an inspiration. There's a lot of good shredders out there. Unfortunately only 10% make music I can listen to. Satriani has got to be up there though. Near flawless technique but also amazing song writing ability.

I agree with Emir here, playing guitar fast is a challenge and all of us at one point or another pursue it, however sometimes we take away musicality for the sake of playing fast, when I listen to SRV I understand that playing bluesy slower licks is more difficult and challenging.

What was said by Emir on another post is absolutely true it is very hard to play a single note very slowly with the right amount of vibrato and feel

Again very true, I see new shredders on you tube that play fast but that is all

Not so much the shred-a-minute, lightning fast stuff that is considered wizardry to the uninitiated..
but a guitarist springs to mind that I would most definately describe as technical

Ron Jarzombek (Blotted Science, Watchtower, Spastic Ink..etc)

I can't believe you mentioned Jarzombek. I only discovered him lately but he is a fantastic player.

Also I would mention

Marco Sfogli (first appeared in Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie's solo project)

or even

Guthrie Govan

who is not even considered a shredder but incorporates fast picking/sweeping/legato passages into his playing while still keeping balance. He just spices his solos up but his magic is still in his style.
