Highly creative and a technical wizard. His ear for melodies and ability to turn them into mind-numbingly amazing music should place him very high on this list.

His solos are so tough to play. Even you could play those, it won't be like his. Don't what about him. Is his fingers that are thinner than average guitarist? Or something else? His licks are very fast. This guy enjoys doing battle with other. Its his speed that makes him greater. His guitar solos remind me of Yngwie Malmsteen's style. - zxm
