Umm...sorry, no, Francesco Fareri is so much faster than Petrucci it's ridiculous, along with Rusty Cooley and...ah hell, check the fastest guitarist thread, you'll get it.

Just in case of doubt: Fareri's website, check the videos page.

I bet someone soon post that list... I don't know if he really is "the fastest" but he sure is fast and the coolest thing is that he seldom do legato. As god as every note is picked.

He sure is fast yes, but look/listen to "suspension"... it's dosen't sound enything near good and everything looks liek its been speed up altough it might not be...

shred is more than speed. some song by Shane Lane, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani are good because they keep somekinda melody and harmony in their playing.

but then yet again, everyone has their own opinios.

I never said anything about style or musicality, I'll take Petrucci over Fareri any day, i was just saying, that actually even those sweeps don't come close to being fastest, even Malmsteen is faster than those sweeps.

I happen to think that Petrucci is one of the best shredders out there right now, beaten only by Guthrie Govan and Paul Gilbert...and maybe Steve Vai's better moments.

p.s. It's Shawn Lane, not Shane.

Yeah you´re right , Francesco sure may very fast , but his music sucks big time , it has no melody at all , he sure has an amazing technique but doesnt mean nothing if he cant make a good melody

Great job for finding The John Petrucci Thread.
Known.
Some.
Call.
Is.
Air.
Am?

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.

"Known some call is air am."
Which is to say-

No, just no dude. I love JP to death, but he is by no means the fastest OR the cleanest out there.

Speed isn't everything.

Even if John Petrucci isn't the fastest guitarist, he is ****ing amazing, and his music rocks.

That is good enough for me.

He said, better, not faster. Being better does not equate to being faster. Besides, music is based on expression and opinion. Musicians aren't really "better" than one another.

Anyway, take it to the JP thread.

Not really, Shawn Lane's not really my kind of thing

And to mw7: I figured it out, it works out that those sweeps in the middle come to about 16.6 notes per second

John Petrucci is in my top 3 personal fav of all time but I don't care how fast he can pick, he knows how to write some incredible songs, and thats what matters, because speed by itself if ****in useless, and quite frankly sounds like a bunch of y'all are stuck in the speed trap I hate to say
