There are live versions that surpass the fastest jazz guitarists I have ever heard. Two examples: L A Forum I Don't Live Today 04-26-69 toward the end of the song, and about 60 percent the way through Woodstock Instrumental Improvisation. Many other examples, and he does almost every guitar style- very well.

Listen to the song Lonely Day and you will understand
faster than slash with the same level as ichiro takigawa
I wonder why Michael Romeo is just a contender and I also wonder why the hell Slash got in the top 10... he's too slow compare to Michael Romeo
The Guitar virtuoso from Symphony X
Timed at 20NPS. Unbelievably fast and clean. His playing is all so smooth and legato that you don't always realize how fast it is.
Yngwie is ultimately my favourite, but Hizaki is definitely my second favourite, he's one of the very few guitarists still around today who can actually play the songs they release on CD and not only that he does it just as quickly and cleanly. Definitely one of the most underrated guitarist I've ever seen in my life, hence why I voted for him.
If you have ever heard any of his songs then you would know the majesty of his guitar and composition. It would be foolish to say he is the fastest but he is one of the best. Check out Battle Against Time by his band Wintersun if you need an example. His vocals (both clean and rough) are excellent. Check out Wintersun or his old band Ensiferum which is also excellent.
I've come to regard these lists as nothing more than a joke. But he wasn't even mentioned. What a bunch of losers. Go listen to Wintersun or Ensiferum
Listen to Nevermore's songs "Born", "Enemies of Reality" & "The Heart Collector"; also listen to his solo songs E.G. "Miles of Machines", "Escape Velocity".
You will then see why this guy is one of the, if not THE BEST modern guitar shredder
Check him out he is lightning fast
