...... Or any other extended range guitarists....

Ive come up with:
Tosin Abasi (My fave)
Meshuggah
Unearth
Acacia Strain (New album)
The Red Shore...

Can anyone think of players similar to Tosin Abasi and possibly link to lessons/guitar pro tabs? I love his style of playing and want to learn that similar style... like jazz/fusion/prog metal

Preferably no straight out shredders, sure thats fun for a while, but it gets boring.

If you haven't heard/seen of Tosin Abasi here's a link.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

For me, it's Trivium's Matt Heafy and the mighty Rusty Cooley!

Rusty's new metal band "Day of Reckoning" has blown me away with just the demos..

Charlie Hunter (8 string in this clip, now plays a 7 string). He uses it to play his own basslines instead of hiring a bassist.

more importantly, George Van Eps, one of the first electric 7 string guitarists, using a 7 string guitar as early as the mid 30's.
