Would Alexi Laiho count as a shredder?

If so, then he's my top pick. Yngwie Malmsteen's another one of my favorites.

I just started listening to shred, so far im impressed with satch and vai, MAB has technical skill but his music doesn't really have any structure or emotion to it, its just him playing real fast.

Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

Jason Becker/Marty Friedman, they are one and the same in my opinion ;P

Well, you might make her think otherwise.

You could just show her that you have a PS3 and BANG.

A chainsaw can take a girl off her feet pretty nicely. Then there are less limbs to worry about while you rape her.

NAh Marty Friedman and Becker are quite different styles.

Marty tends too explore more exotic sounds, and becker tends too explore more of classical harmonies.

I do't really have 1 fav.

I'd say Satch or Marty

Satch.

Vai as composer (Sound theories!)
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died. Hakuin answered 'How am I supposed to know?'
'How do you not know? You're a Zen master!' exclaimed the samurai.
'Yes, but not a dead one,' Hakuin answered.

Paul Gilbert and John Petrucci always feature very highly on my lists of shredders I like along with Guthrie Govan and Jeff Loomis.

However, picking just one is impossible; they're all awesome in completely different ways.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Buckethead, Shawn Lane, Guthrie Govan, Paul Gilbert. Few more could be said but those are main ones I've been listening to lately.

Buckethead is probably more of a favorite over all of them so I could just mention him. But Shawn Lane needs mention either way.

I might have misspelled Guthrie's name but...yeah, I'm not a great speller

Buckethead.

I've never seen any musician release so much material that is consistently amazing.

This is true, he is always releasing amazing music.
