michael romeo is more metal than yngwie. and i use "metal" literally - darker, heavier, not always neoclassical, wayy better riffs. so therefore i like him more.

i also think he knows more when to slow it down. yngwie is a bit extreme.

I like them all :-( and I am envious of all of their skills but +1 to marty friedman. Shredding doesn't "suck", MOST people who say that would probably secretly kill to be able to play with the speed and accuracy of someone like Yngwie, now don't get me wrong I know it can be over done and become very redundant sounding, but their is no doubting it takes a vast amount of musical knowledge and discipline to acheive what they have.

I have the same respect for shredders as I do for good classical players, blues players, country pickers, etc..... I don't see how a guitar player can look at a high level of guitar playing and say "that sucks". It may not interest you but it does not suck.

Either one of these: Marty Friedman, Michael Romeo, Guthrie Govan, or Ron Jarzombek
I really can't choose the better one.

seriously though, Randy Rhoads. I personally dislike shredding in general, but he is the only guitarist that is considered a "shredder" that I actually like.

Probably Buckethead although I don't consider him to be a shredder (Even though he can shred like a mother****er). But all out shredders: Gilbert.

most shredding sounds pretty awful

but Eric Johnson and Paul Gilbert are pretty awesome

Paul Gilbert for the fact that he is really cool and doesn't have to be shredding all the time - he can play fast, but doesn't feel he has to.
And Guthrie Govan for jaw-dropping ability...

I agree. He covers a wide array of styles and seems like a really down to earth guy. I guess that doesn't make him play any better, but it can't hurt.

Shredding sucks and rating a guitrist on notes per minute is just ****ing stupid, surely it should be skill and technique and soul not how qucikly you can rape your e-string or b string if your slipknot, A nuts blues jam is a lot harder to play than shredding, probably gona get flammed for that so Flame Sheild i chose you lol

I think speed and skill are good things to have for playing guitar, but I agree that shred isn't very pleasant to listen to, and is more of a novelty to me. I chose Paul Gilbert as my favorite because he can actually write songs and works his shred into them fairly tastefully. This is, however, a favorite shredder thread, not a fastest shredder thread. I think the fastest (though I've no idea if this still holds true) was this guy, who I have no interest in listening to, but I do admire his dedication and the results he's achieved from what I can imagine were many, many hours of practice.
