Check out Jeff Loomis.. his stuff with nevermore is great too but if you want to hear some real skill look up "miles of machines - Jeff Loomis"...Enjoy

Any Jazz guitarist will likely be all over those arps. A more metal guitarist that comes to mind is Synyster Gates.

Luca Turilli. He was my first metal guitar hero Good times...

This solo is epic to the max (Unholy Warcry): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaBD8xRvK7w

This song (Trolls In The Dark) has some very cool rhythmic usage of arpeggios throughout the main melody: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gf6jtbrBGA

Also, here's a solo called The Warlord's Last Challenge from the song Gargoyles, Angels Of Darkness: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7IEu1BKFkE Has epic arpeggio ownage.

The only one I have to add is Jari Mäenpää.
Speed is a by-product of shut the fuck up.

Learn all notes on fretboard, how chords are formed, then use the 21 day challenge on this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87Iz3RHZNDQ

Check out the album Wintersun, virtually every solo includes sweeping arpeggios in it. Beyond The Dark Sun has a neat sweep solo in the beginning.

wow , what a list definitely will give me a different view on arpeggio playing


although i don't think VAI is as noticeable or excessive with ARP's as say yngwie , batio and especially becker = ARP - king , for the moment till i listen to these others .

Paul Waggoner from BTBAM uses quite a bit, especially on Swim to the Moon. Much wankery is ensued.

Also, Guthrie Govan.

You want to be an arpeggio master, be prepared to spend the next 2 years practicing various shapes and techniques over and over.

Even then, 2 years is probably not enough. I'd say 3 years of serious work, 8 years of on and off work.

go to this site - http://www.justinguitar.com/en/JA-000-Jazz.php - an find the section 'Jazzing up your blceues' - This is a great introduction on using arpegios and I feel it will help you a lot.

He also has a section just on arpeggios.

Make sure you learn how an arpeggio is structured to, it will make the process a whole lot easier to understand and faster to get down.

You could also check out Marty Friedmans Melodic Control series on youtube, he talks about arpeggios a lot.
