Re: Best Guitarist of the last 30 years.
Listen to Indios Tabajaras playing Chopin and other greats in classical guitar, a duo from Brazil that got noticed in very early 1940s. Between their two guitars they had the full piano range. Fast and accurate players, the guy with a pick alternated everything of course, technique for complicated music calls for it. No one invented alternating or sweeping nor speed, all this comes from good talented music and the artist most follow. When I started playing playing guitar to alternate pick was from day one and I didn't listen to rock or jazz music by then. By the time Yngwie came along I was playing his solos, but funny thing I didn't know the sweep arppeggios technique so I was alternating picking all his arppeggio runs!
I'm surprised that no one has mentioned yet the most important person ever in the history of guitar,
Spanish Andres Segovia.
