Fastest Guitarist Ever
The Contenders: Page 4
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
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.
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.V 1 Comment
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
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...
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!
Highway star, last licks. - zxm
Insane songwriter for starters, the boy's a sheer genius. Chases impossible things, and has grown significantly over the years. Always had original ideas, but now walks the walk proper. Definitely one of the best current guitarists in the world, all things considered.
He's john not zakk
Can't believe he's not on the list
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...
I had to add him because nobody else apparently listens to Necrophagist. This dude can seriously shred and is amazing too. Look him up
Bassist not guitarist, even if he is then he isn't fast. - zxmV 1 Comment
