Favourite Examples of Technique

Can you think of any pieces of music or live performances where somebody plays in such a way that it perfectly demonstrates a great example of a technique ?

For example, in this track by Cacophony,

Jason Becker demonstrates absolutely perfect, signing vibrato. Listen to that note at 3.18. It manages to be so smooth and wide on the highest strings that it makes you wonder if he was playing on gauge .006 or something ?? It's incredible.

It can be any technique.. string bending, sweep picking... it doesn't have to be the 'best' example or 'cleanest' or anything like that. It just has to be something that makes you feel 'This is what this technique is all about'

Sweep...Josh Middleton
Ok we know a lot of sweepers like Jason of yngwie malmsteen but this guy uses the sweep as a hipnotical riffs in his songs... it's not only a part of a solo. Very interesting in my opinion....
