I'd say Van Halen...... Definately Hendrix, .... Id say Malmsteen to, other stuff like his in 84' came out later on in about 88' or so.... Not like its a big gap, but still appropriate to the topic.

anyways, I'd probably say metallica. they were pretty ahead with MOP era in the 80s..

I'm a big fan of Ritchie Blackmore, especially his neo-classical stuff. He certainly inspired other guitarists like Malmsteen.

You're joking right?

It's like comparing sex to sticking your penis in a blender.

^ Coltrane played sax....? I'm assuming you just mean as a musician though, which I would agree with.
I agree with Zappa being ahead of his time, Van Halen as well. Maybe the guys from Television and Hendrix with his use of effects/recording techniques. Actually, I would say Zappa is ahead of his time not as much for his guitar playing but his approach to recording and his enthusiasm for new technologies, he was always at the fore-front as far as technology goes.

id say blue oyster cult they just diddnt sound like anything, also wes montgomary was ahead of his time, van halen was in the 80s lately he hasnt done anything revolutionary tho
#20
hendrix of course.

i dont know why everyone is saying evh but no randy rhoads. randy was playing with all the same tricks with quiet riot, and they were both around at the same time...

so id say evh AND randy rhoads.
#21
Budgie

Check out "Crash Course in Brain Surgery" or "Breadfan", yah, I know Metallica covered them both but the originals rock out.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Right you are. Randy Rhoads completely slipped my minds. He was play crazier stuff than Van Halen before VHI was even released. The only reason he is more well known is because he got a record deal first.

Paganini, most people know him as a violinist but he was a virtuoso classical guitarist too. He was the worlds first shredder. He played 6 string sweep arps and all, insane stuff. But he kicked more ass at violin.
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!
