89 Greg Howe

Not very well known, but he has some amazing technique as well as speed.

90 Bill Steer Bill Steer

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?

97 Steve Hackett Steve Hackett

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...
