Is that the one with 4 tracks? Some song with 'rain' in the title...."After The Rain"? Wait..no...that's Nelson. LOL
Anyway, I have that EP (somewhere). Fast, and kinda funny. :-) I think Grim Reaper ripped off the singing style. LOL

I'm curious as to why this thread comes up so frequently. There is no way of judging who is the fastest, unless there is someone who can play any line faster than anybody else.

that said, I'm the fastest.......shooting off at the mouth!

Because

Because speed isn't everything, but we do love to hear people rip it up.

Yeah, I was talking about that four song EP in black with "Impeliterri" on the front in white.

Dick Dale man. JK. As far as speed goes...I really dont give a ****. But as enough people have already said that, Ill just say that Rusty Cooley's up there. Al Di Meola does it without any distortion or amplification. As far as playing proficiently and tastefully at the same time. My favs:
Paul Gilbert (most of the time)
Rob Balducci (not only is he a hell of a player, his song writing's pretty good too)
Vai (duh)
Satch (up to Crystal Planet)
Petrucci (people can diss him all they want, I love his style)

That's about it. Hate Malmsteen. And since I wont even mention Hammet, well there I went and did it, hate him too. (who the hell voted for him? Just curious)

P Riff

I got kinda speedy near the end of http://www.turnrock.com/raymond/Pet_1.mp3. My band and I made up everything on that track on the spot and afterwards I felt like Petrucci playing with Rush--not that I sound like him, it was just a feeling I had. Oh, it's an 8 min track, so if you want to hear the fast part, it's in the second half.

I hope someone likes it. Sorry about the production.

Michael Angelo and Guthrie Govan are by far faster than all guitarists out there.
Guthrie can also destroy 99.999999999% of all players in every style, including Vai.

OK, I love Zakk, but COMON -- there is no way he is faster than any of those guys in the poll (well, except Hammett). Fast, but not fastest.

Nah, George Lynch is the best at "destroying", or maybe Zakk Wylde. I mean they both work out a lot, so they'll have really big biceps and gnarly delts which really helps in the destroying area

Guthrie's a great player and a great guy, I think the last thing he'd do is "destroy" anyone. Us lucky folks in the UK get to hear Guthrie a great deal as he records a heap of stuff for the UK guitar magazines

I've seen him play a few times. I was absolutely flawed by his speed, personality, and sheer creativeness. I don't understand why a player that is a better all around guitarist than just about everyone I've ever seen or heard isn't noticed like he should be. The man is a master at Speedmetal, jazz, Blues, funk, classical, and on and on and on.
It's such a shame

The son of Ole Paus (Norwegian artist) can play about 35 notes per second.... But whats the matter being able to play so fast if you can't play anything that really sounds good?

I think that it's in part because he's taken the "easy" route (as he should have). This is hard to put into the right words so bare with me

By going for the gear demos, the magazine columns and so on, he's diluted his potential to be a star, as a lot of folks will never see past the "jobbing guitarist" image. There's no impact when he plays, he's just "the guy from [the magazine] Guitar Techniques". The UK audience have heard it all before in a vehicle that doesn't let him showcase what he does. However this is what lets him play guitar for a living, rather than sitting at a computer behind a desk all day, but to get to star like proportions he'd need to up sticks to the USA.

Also, there's no market for a "guitar superhero" anymore. When folks like us were young it was cool to be able to play your socks off, these days, it's how low can you sling your PRS singlecut These are the guitar heroes worshipped by most kids today.

I'm personally not too fond of his own stuff, I don't find his melodies particularly catchy which is something I like to hear in with the great technique and cool tone. That doesn't mean he's not a great player though. I think he'll end up being more of an Allan Holdsworth than a Joe Satriani. And in a roundabout way that's a compliment
