    Daniele Gottardo has a very well developed tap- style of playing on a strat. He fuses neoclassical and jazzier progressions. I think he was released through Favoured Nations, or was a Steve Vai favorite Nat some point.

    Anyone new(er) doing anything classical inspired? I don’t mean just “Malmsteen copy” but stuff that you can tell was influenced by that classical/pop/etc? Idk, just looking for more than “plays fast” but isn’t full on “jazz theory clinic”. Love polyphia for example, and they’re not “classical shred”.

    Per Nilsson and Andy James are the most interesting to me these days. and Chris Poland's playing is out side of the box and interesting still!

    Too many to name honestly.

    All of the greats I guess: Malmsteen, Muenzner, Suicmez, Laiho, Latvala, Vinnie Moore.

    Haven't had much interest in a lot of those guys in a while though. Recently I'd say Malcolm from Inferi and Rick Graham is probably my number one by a huge margin. Dudes technique is immaculate.

    Define shredders: actual shredding or just lead players in general?

    If the latter, then...let's see:
    Chris Poland
    Dimebag Darrell
    Marty Friedman (I guess Jason Becker as well, they come as a duo with Cacophony)
    Dave Mustaine

    These are the only ones coming off the top of my head. I'm not a lead guitar kinda guy so that list is very short. I'm completely driven by rhythm work, so that'd a different kind of list.
