Let me introduce to you the dutch representatives (>>opening curtain<<):
Ex. Lemur Voice, Speedica, Fifth currently playing in 'Sun Caged' (Progmetal whooot), 'Stormrider' (oldskool metal a la Megadeth etc.) and 'Time Machine' (Satriani tribute band). A great musician (good shredder too btw), if you check his website, be sure to check the media section with lots of stuff in it.
Ex. Elysion and still playing in 'Arabesque', session guitarist too. Check out his website to discover that this guy is an absolute monster on the guitar. Lots of media on his website too, be sure to check his samples.
Both Marcel and Joop appear on a few 'various artists' cd's, including the 'shawn lane remembered' one.
Then there are a few 'guitar-forum-freaks'
of which you probrably know the first one:
Boudewijn de Koning
Technically perfect, but also a great composer (check the ballad). I don't know in which band(s) he plays, doesn't have a website either.:
Here's a few things of Boudewijn:
- Arps at 200mph!
- A very nice ballad, a typical case of a 'repeater'
Robbert van den Hanenberg
Session guitarist and guitarist of coverband MXL, has a very typical vibrato and an amazing arpeggio-tap-technique. But of course has a great musical mind too. His tone is very distinguishing too, it's sometimes described as 'birds flying out of the guitar':
- A ballad
- Neoclassical song
- A blues jam
- 'Farewell Dimebag' a tribute, also with Chris Brooks.
Ok, of course I forgot 50 people but that's it for now
