"newer" guitar virtuosos appreciation thread

It kills me to see that none of the very well known guitar virtuosos started their carreers not too long ago. Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Greg Howe, Tony Macalpine, Richie Kotzen, Allan Holdsworth, Jimmy Page, Reb Beach.... etc all started 2 or 3 decades ago. IMO the newer guitarists arent getting the attention they deserve. So i made this thread to pay tribute to them (and to learn about more of them since you guys know more guitarists).
First guitarist i'm gonna mention is Magnus Olsson. Very tasteful solos, incredible technique, great phrasing and a tone that makes me go weewee everytime i hear it. He's definately one of my favourite guitarists ever and he deserves so much more attention (yes, more than an ibanez and a dimarzio endorsements lol)
So lets hear it from you. Who of the newer guitar virtuosos do you think is really underrated?

I don't know how long Guthrie Govan has been on the scene but he's obviously silly.

Re: "newer" guitar virtuosos appreciation thread

Some of these guys have been around for a while, but here's a few shreddier players i've been listening to lately ; Joe Stump, Dave Martone, Ron Thal, Mattias Ia Eklundh, John 5, Rusty Cooley, Buckethead and Vinnie Moore.

Give those guys a listen, i'm sure you will hear something you like.

Rock on!

Vinnie Moore is a machine!
Check out some of the old instructional clips on Youtube. I don't think I've ever heard a guitarist who is that perfect and clean technically, while doing such fast and complex licks.
But he's definitely an 'older' guitar virtuoso, as these clips are from the 80s, as is his most popular work (Mind's Eye and Meltdown).

[QUOTE=Scali;765037]Vinnie Moore is a machine

At the winter NAMM "95" we were walking from our hotel to the convention and we saw the hottest looking chick in tiiiiight jeans with awesome hair, waiting for the light to change. We were going to walk over and try to score some time with her and when we got there it was Vinnie Moore. Never realized how short that dude was...That was the funniest thing

I was going to say the exact same thing when I looked at the thread title....
Apart from the silly bit, what do you mean by that haha.

Anyway, I only started listening to Guthrie the other day and WOW. He astounds me!

Guthrie Govan is extremely boring !
Passion & Warfare did everything to guitar.
New players don't sound good to me.

Boring!?

Wow...everyone has their own opinions I guess, but I find his playing far from boring. I would say Passion and Warfare is getting a bit boring after all these years. It's nice to hear something new.
