    Ok, I'll say two more things

    Ok, I'll say two more things about Yngwie, then I'll shut up. First of all, in senior high I was surrounded by Yngwie fanatics so I've turned bashing him into an art form. I'm trying very hard not to do that here. ;) Second, I guess my biggest problem with him is that he's such an a$$. I've friends who've gone to clinics with him and he usually leads off with something like "There are only two musicians in the history of man, JS Bach and YJ Malmsteen" and he's deadly serious. Sure, he's good at what he does but that's no excuse for that kind of behavior. I can't stand arrogant people.

    I have to say to me he just missed "it". His music is very unispiring to me. I'll take Slash over him any day.

    Wow, Yngwie has managed to

    Wow, Yngwie has managed to follow me from the Ultimate-guitar forums. BB, he and Michael Angelo Batio actually are the two fastest guitarists who can play well at all. Thier average picking speed is 14 beats per second. The guy who has the world record speed had burst up to 32 per second, but he can't really play guitar for crap, he can just pick fast. The best I've managed is about 10 beats per second, but I'm not really a speed nut anyways. Yngwie wrote some really good music, once. After that he proceeded to release pretty much the same album over and over again. He's a good player, but lacks creativity.

    The real greatest player in the world is Randy Rhoads. (Quiet Riot, and Ozzy Ozbourne 1980-82. He's the guy who wrote Crazy Train.) This is him at a soundcheck just messing around and making stuff up. Fricken amazing.

    Okay, whatever, I'm obviously not smart enough for this embedding buisiness, so here the link

    Just because I love him and people always get it wrong, its Rhoads, not Rhodes, TJ.

    Yes, I recognize the misspelling. I misspelled in a hurry. As I have so much to do on this site, that will happen now and again. As you will see, it will happen to you too. ;-)

    All this and no one has posted a link to Eruption yet? All I have to say is "1:08". Is there a finer moment of guitar-self-wankery? I think not!

    Eh, Eruption is kinda

    Eh, Eruption is kinda over-rated. I mean I can play eruption. Randy's solo? Not so much. And chris, while the video I posted was mostly just speed Randy isn't one of those blazing fast people. He can play super fast, but he also brings in a lot of slower bluesy elements into his solos. Thats what makes him the best, he has technical skill and soul. Try this one, it shows off Randy's other side.

    And while I've brought up over-rated stuff, if anyone posts a link to "Through the Fire and Flames" or tries to tell me that Herman Li is the best guitarist ever, I will run to your house (barefoot of course) and punch you in the face.

    There's a difference between being skilled and being a good musician. Yngwie and Michael Angelo Batio are skilled but that's about it. And Danjo, jsut to watch you try, Herman Li is the best guitarist EVER! :D
