First, check out the cool new lesson by Laszlo, "Neoclassical Etude" and then post a reply to following question.

Besides the "great Swede" (you know who I am talking about, right?!), who do you think does a good job at incorporating neoclassical shredding into their playing?

Which great Swede do you mean? Per Gessle? wink.gif
Just kidding...
I'm not a big fan of neoclassical stuff, so apart from the great Swede I only know the neoclassical compositions teacher have done for this site. I really like Laszlo's new lesson, and I think Marcus and Emir have put up some amazing neoclassical lessons as well that make me like this style a little more wink.gif

I think back in the day, Vinnie Moore was the best of the Malmsteen 'imitators'.. but we all know that he went on to forge his own style which was awesome..

Cacophony didn't sound too much like Malmsteen thanks to their bizarre melodies, but they were the best of the neoclassical players who did not sound like Yngwie (if that all makes sense ?)

Paul Gilbert's work in racer X was also incredible.

Uli Jon Roth has become more neo classical in recent years, he recorded a version of the 4 Seasons on guitar - it's an album called 'Metamorphosis'. It's different to the usual neo classical shred approach as he emulates the subtlety of a violin really well.

yes, Vinnie Moore is great doing NEo classical stuff, I love all of his new stuff.

Cacophony are great because they did a different thing approaching to classical music.

oh, Tony MacAlpine also did some interesting stuff differently from Yngwie

Romeo, Cacophony, And Paul Gilbert. To me though, anything that sounds like Malmsteen I don't like.

My vote goes to Macalpine and his album "Maximum Security" - one of the coolest neoclassical albums in my opinion!
