Paganini was the original neoclassical shredder.
Uli introduced it to guitar, but The Yng took it and ran away with it.
Eddie learned dive-bombs from George Lynch -but he took it and ran.
I can't really consider Paganini Neoclassical. He was a musician during the Romantic era, which is considered to be classical. Paganini was the original classical shredder.
