He was fast look at domination and cemetery gates solo he should be top ten

Dime at 37 and Syn at 1. Must be a technical failure.

Nothing to say just love your playing

This was ridiculous list he should be top ten.

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

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...

47 Allan Holdsworth Allan Holdsworth

Without a doubt. One of the fastest and technical player you'll find!

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.

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

55 Al Di Meola Al Di Meola Al Di Meola is an American jazz fusion and Latin jazz guitarist, composer, and record producer of Italian origin.

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

56 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...

57 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. When performing live he does his own version of Chuck Berry's "duck walk" and has also spun on his side while more.

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

Listen to Thunderstruck so fast - rocker1796

58 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.
59 Tiago Della Vega

I find this list quite strange, because speed is measurable. It isn't opinion. This guy holds the world record for fastest playing ever, so he literally is the fastest guitarist ever. No questions, he IS. This list is just a popularity contest.

This guy literally IS the fastest guitar player ever. He holds the Guiness World Record for playing the guitar at 750bpm! Search this on YouTube: '750 BPM - UNBELIEVABLE- The Absolut World Record - Tiago Della Vega' to see a video of him playing 'Flight Of The Bumblebee' at 750bpm.
