There's a field of guitar playing that can put others to shame. It might take hundreds of guitar lessons, and an intricate knowledge of guitar scales, but those who nail it have officially found the zen of guitar playing and beyond.
That's right: we're talking about guitar shredding.
It can take many forms and include sweep-picked arpeggios, finger tapping and sometimes wailing whammy bar action, but ultimately it has to melt faces and impregnate women. That's the mark of a true axe-smith.
This week we're asking you to identify who can shred faster than any other:
Who is the best guitar shredder of all time?
To make things more interesting, they don't have to be a celebrity guitarist. If you find someone awesome on YouTube, post a link to their video and they might even get enough up votes to appear on our list this Friday.
Otherwise, just place your nominations like usual and upvote those you agree with. YouTube links to the best examples are welcome. It could be cool to post links to your favourite shred-worthy guitar tabs too.
We'll compile your results in a top 10 post this Friday. Thanks!
