You've said Yngwie alt picks in the first post, but he doesn't

Are we counting sweep picking and two handed techniques? Imo they shouldn't count as it kinda distorts playing speed, Shawn Lane never swept or tapped, because he could the sound by picking/string skipping, imagine how quick he'd be if he did sweep/tap though.

^ Of course they should be counted, as this is a list for outright speed. I'm a firm advocate of the categorisation of speed, though. I'll always be more in awe of the fastest pure alt pickers than the sweepers or tappers.

He sweeps plenty, he sweeps on power licks, he eco picks lots of lines, he taps fine as well. :shug:

Shawn wasn't trying to be "the fastest guitarist without cheating" - he used the tools available as desired, and he tapped, swept and indeed, alternate picked whenever he felt like it without a twinge of guilt.

I've only ever seen one video of him tapping in early 80s, he just does what humans would tap with crazy one hand stretches (that crazy lick in esperanto)

That's even better then, it evidences that he had the skills to do it but didn't because it wasn't getting him a sound he wanted at the time; speed was not his goal in and of itself, it was just part of the musical idea he was expressing.

Speaking of Lane and picking, is there any particular album by George Benson I should check out? I still remember the fascination over that Tuck Andress article from all those years ago, yet I never actually went on to listen to his stuff.

I think this was the first thing I heard by Benson that made me really put him in the "WTF League" -

What about Bryan Money of Escape the Fate? He's pretty intense.

No kidding! That's some serious jazz shredding there, without being the usual fusion I'm used to. I'll definitely check out more now.

Well, theres fast, then theres people who are so fast, they become a blur of tonality (if they pull dynamics off right at least), their fingers blur, and move so fast they look like they are slowly moving backwards (think of a wheel of a car moving fast)

What about it?

Oh, btw, your guitar is slightly out of tune.

And so are your bends.

No. Sorry. We don't care. His playing is terribly sloppy anyways, he's not playing as fast as he says at the top end of the metronome.
