This time we are looking at one of the fastest guitar players ever to burst onto the scene in the 80's - Chris Impellitteri.
Chris was very much into the whole neo classical thing that was popular at the time... super fast picking runs, sweep arpeggios, you name it. Similarities and comparisons to Yngwie were inevitable... but Chris has carved out his own niche in guitar history, playing some outrageously cool solos and writing some ultra kick ass songs.
Chris is notable for mainly using his bridge pickup during all his fast runs, as opposed to switching to the neck pickup like most of his contemporaries. This requires one to be more confident in their technique and muting abilites. The neck pickup can hide a lot of inaccuracies but the bridge pickup is not so forgiving.
Chris also plays a lot of arpeggios with alternate picking, when the tempo allows, instead of sweeping.
This asks a lot of dexterity of a player but it sounds great.
