    Holy FUCK! Man you can complain that Galneryus' music isn't half as good as it was in the first 3 albums but Syu is a fucking natural performer. I HAVE to see them live.

    And as long as Kiko Loureiro, Guthrie Govan, Vinnie Moore and Paul Gilbert have been mentioned I'm happy :)

    Ron is not normal people. He's on a completely different level from most other musicians, not only in the way he plays, but the stuff that goes on in his head.

    :yesway:

    well, I think the best rhythm player would be gunface,

    just listen to the crazy riff at 1:03, best part? he single picks it, not sweeps.

    Seriously. That guy's crazy. Damn I'd love to meet him someday. Him and every other guitarist on the planet.

    Oh and I forgot one

    Since there has been so many great names already mentioned over the past 6 pages:

    Albert Lee
    All three of the Hellcasters (Jerry Donahue, John Jorgenson, Will Ray)
    Jeff Beck (because he has complete command of the instrument, even without a pick)

    EDIT: Also Tommy Emmanuel. :bowdown:

    He actually goes mental at 1:33 .... his thumb... his tapped harmonies with himself... omg :p :shred: :shred: :shred: :shred:



    Here is the classic :p



    And here is a song of his, on his new channel




    I love this guy :D Incredible tapping technique :eek:

    Are you familiar with T.J Helmerich? I'm pretty sure he was one of the early people to make the double tapping stuff popular.



    It's however easier to tap "clean" imo since it requires less coordination and especially if you use dampers. So Nuno still wins to me :fawk:

    Did someone say..."tapping"?

    How about some Mike Orlando on an Ovation?

    decrepit birth on the other hand played right before the faceless and fucking destroyed everything... im not a huge DB fan, but goddamn are they fuckin tight live
