Seriously, number 60? Top 20 if not higher. Blazing licks

63Hizaki

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.

64Jari Mäenpää

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

67Hideto Matsumoto

Hide may not be one of the fastest guitarists, but nobody plays with so much passion. Check the song "Orgasm" by X Japan, he deserves to be in the top 10.

The creator of speed on guitar. Most other guitarists after Ritchie's generation were influenced with what he did or was doing in his time, whether they want to admit it or not. Back in late sixties early seventies he was a head of his time...

Ritchie Blackmore is the most fastest guitarist all time!

69Kiko LoureiroPedro Henrique "Kiko" Loureiro is a Brazilian Heavy metal guitarist, best known as a member of the bands Angra and Megadeth.

Angra may not be famous & commercial than Avenged Sevenfold, but you can see they are much more faster & technical than Sevenfold when you listen to them. POWER METAL rules...

70Zakk WyldeZakk Wylde is an American musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and occasional actor who is best known as the former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society.

Can't believe he's not on the list

75Ron Jarzombek

Just listen to 'Oscillation Cycles' and you will know exactly what I mean. This guy isn't nearly as well known as he should be. Synyster Gates is pretty good, I admit, but fastest EVER? He is only on top because he is the most popular, and a load of stupid kids think he is the best guitarist ever.

Blotted Science Guitarist one of the fastest guitarist in this world...

I agree this guy had been overlooked a bit... This guy is one of my favorites
He comes up very unusual material but it works... I believe he is a fan of Alex Lifeson... Very cool...

76Muhammed SuiçmezMuhammed Suiçmez was born in Karlsruhe, Germany, to Turkish immigrants. He is the frontman and guitarist of the German technical death metal band Necrophagist.

I had to add him because nobody else apparently listens to Necrophagist. This dude can seriously shred and is amazing too. Look him up
