41 Kerry King Kerry King Kerry Ray King is an American musician, best known as a guitarist for the American thrash metal band Slayer.

Really? 44? What is the definition of fast for this poll?

He Should be in the top 10...go n lisyen to angel of death solo...and where the heck is hanneman? He should be in the top 10 too

42 Micheal Romeo

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

Michael Romeo truly is fast. I agree totally aboout Slash... he's slow conpared to guitar players in general...

43 Matt Heafy Matt Heafy Matthew "Matt" Kiichi Heafy is a Japanese-American musician, best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the Orlando based Heavy Metal/Metalcore band Trivium.
44 Johnny Ramone Johnny Ramone John William Cummings, better known by his stage name Johnny Ramone, was an American guitarist and songwriter, best known for being the guitarist for the punk rock band the Ramones.

All right, he is not a lead guitarist. Not that much. But he has speed. A lot good guitarists can't strum like him - zxm

According to Ed Stasium, "Johnny makes it sound simple, but I can't do it, and I bet Eddie Van Halen can't. Not for an hour! " - zxm

45 Ken Kitamura

faster than slash with the same level as ichiro takigawa - ronluna

46 Joe Stump

Used to take lessons from this guy when he was balding. Most people don't know that that's either a great toupe or he's a member of hair club for men...

Very fast player by the way...

49 Allan Holdsworth Allan Holdsworth

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.

50 Tak Matsumoto
51 Ichiro Takigawa
52 Ray Toro Ray Toro Raymond "Ray" Toro is an American musician who served as lead guitarist and backing vocalist of the band My Chemical Romance until their split in 2013.

Seriously? There aren't 5 guitarists in the world faster or more accurate. I think it's time some of you open up your minds to a guitar player that can actually play

Watch this guy on YouTube
I have never seen anyone faster in my life

54 Alex Lifeson Alex Lifeson Aleksandar Živojinović, OC, better known by his stage name Alex Lifeson, is a Canadian musician, best known as the guitarist of the Canadian rock band Rush.

Not only is he fast, I believe he is certainly the most under rated

Lifeson is the best... Definitely underrated...

55 Angus Young Angus Young Angus McKinnon Young is an Australian guitarist of Scottish origin, best known as the co-founder, lead guitarist, songwriter and sole constant member of the Australian hard rock band AC/DC.

Listen to the solo of Whole Lotta Rosie and you know what I mean!

Listen to Thunderstruck so fast - rocker1796

56 Jake Pitts Jake Pitts Jacob Mark "Jake" Pitts is an American musician and record producer best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Black Veil Brides.
57 Tommy Bolin Tommy Bolin Thomas Richard "Tommy" Bolin was an American-born guitarist who played with Zephyr, The James Gang, and Deep Purple; in addition to maintaining a notable solo career.
58 Brian May Brian May Brian Harold May is an English musician, singer, songwriter and astrophysicist, best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Queen.

Highly underrated; Comes, because Brian always plays what's best for the song, not what's best for his ego (like so many other guitar masturbators on this list); He MAY not be the fastest, but he CAN do pretty fast... Still that, fastness, - to me - is not a criterion for quality... ;-)

Listen to Dead on Time, Gimme the Prize intro and the solo of Princes of the Universe.

all the music that's not lyrics and not keeping the beat in Queen comes out of one dude with a guitar. - Queen-aholic

59 Jeff Loomis Jeff Loomis Jeff Loomis is an American musician, best known for his role as lead guitarist in the progressive metal band Nevermore and death metal band Arch Enemy.
60 Andy James
