Top Shredders of All Time
The Contenders: Page 5XW
The Guitarist of the Wolfgang in the Philippines.
Beautiful player has all the flash while being very melodic
Check the old Stratovarius-stuff and you will know it!
Great guitarist and shredder no doubt!
Incredible on "Out of the sun". One of the typical and best shredders!
Not very well known, but he has some amazing technique as well as speed.
He should have already been on this list so I will add him. Steer is not only a shredder. He plays with so fast with absolute precision. He has pioneered much of what other guitarist are doing and plays to perfection in a variety of genres (not just death metal). Bill Steer is the epitome of the ideal guitarist.
Bill Steer should be NUMBER 1. He has played some killer guitar in Carcass, early Napalm Death, his own Firebird, Gentleman's Pistols, and Angel Witch. To watch him solo is something to behold and to see him shred is mind-blowing. A privilege to watch play live.
The ultimate guitarist. Is there anything he can't do?
Upcoming south african guitarist. He has been playing for under 1 year and can fluently play yngwie malmsteen songs with ease. The futures fastest shredder.
This guy hails from Ireland... Man can he shred!
I can only think of two guitarists who were sweep picking in the early 70's, and that's Richie Blackmore and Steve Hackett
What the hell? Steve Hackett at the bottom of the list? Some folks have no taste or a clue.
It must be something to do with those dreads...
Great range of styles! Neoclassic, death metal, funk, hard rock...
Very fast guitarist of Blotted Science...
Young Guitarist of Periphery very fast
Best player in Slovenia
