Shrapnel Guitarist Poll

After the emergence of Yngwie Malmsteen Mike Varney then unleashed a new breed of NeoClassical/Shred guitarists in the mid 80's vote for your fave here. I'm also including Bruce Bouillet and Chris Impelleteri in the poll. I don't think Varney discovered these 2 players but they were very much part of the scene back then.

Multiple votes are possible here for the undecided amongst you.

My votes go to Vinnie Moore and Paul Gilbert. My 2 fave guitarists. Can't split them. Vinnie's Minds Eye album is THE must have guitar instrumental album for me. Paul's playing at 19 years of age on Racer X's Street Lethal is phenomonal!!

Ha! Ha! Yeah that's right. Paul is the Man!! He's also a very unassuming guy. Yngwie Malmsteen could learn a thing or two from him about personality, oh yeah and maybe a lick or two as well, lol!!

Re: Shrapnel Guitarist Poll

Paul is the man, then I really do like Jason Becker even though I'm not into neoclassical... then I realized I had to also put Vinnie Moore and Greg Howe... lol

Hands down JAson Becker cannot believe only 2 mentions. His stuff is genius for like a 17 yr old?? Perpetual burn best album ever by far.

Re: Shrapnel Guitarist Poll

For me it's Jason becker on number 1 and Greg Howe on number 2.

I also REALLY like Michael Lee Firkins his music. Great songs.
