im not overly familiar with those players, but i've listened to some of their bands' songs. do they have any instrumental stuff they'd possibly use? i think this would be rather cool, although it'd prolly turn into an awfully long shredfest!

Yeah, the original Metal G3 was Mick Thompson, Dimebag and Zakk Wylde.

Unfortunatly, Dimebag was in 'that' incident, and so i dunno what's happened to it. I doubt they'll do it because it just wouldn't be right.

The only real shredders mentioned above are pobably alex skolnick and marty friedman.
As for the others, I would never pay money to watch Zakk Wylde play an instrumental set. Although he did play some intersting stuff on two of Derek Sherinian's CD's he is certainly not a shredder, but his fame as Ozzy's sideshow makes him a guitar god. Has enyone seen or heard him play guitar solos during Ozzy concerts (ie Bodokan, or Live ad Loud, or actual live shows). It's crap. Yes he has great technique but certainly not G3 calliber.

For that matter, I also have a lot of respect for Dimebag (R.I.P.) and enjoyed his plaing but he would not strike me as the instrumental type to be on a G3.

Alexi Laiho is a ****in crackhead who does play some decent solos, and much better than many metal guitarists out there. If he got his **** together he could be one of metal's greatest young guns.

Therefore my list: (1) Friedman, (2) Skolick, and (3) .... maybe Laiho

Although Petrucci is pretty metal if you ask me and kicks all of the above's asses.

Zack is more of a poser these days then a guitar player ;). I don't know about Laiho everybody says he's a good guitar player but has a sh*tty attitude :?.
