Playing only one kind of music is like taking photographs of the same thing over and over, IMHO.
neil zaza, i saw him play for hours at a clinic, truly amazing.
Synyster Gates (Avenged Sevenfold)
Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom)
Steve Stevens (Billy Idol)
With those you'll get a good mix of Rock, Metal, Neo-Classical, Country and Flamenco styles. Great sweep picked runs and super fast accurate picking, I also think those guys play the genre with feeling. Steve Stevens may seem like an odd suggestion but if you research him (especially the flamenco stuff) you'll see why I put his name in there. Zakk has done some great flamenco and classical stuff too.
Yeah he was great on that album. He released a mostly instrumental album a couple of years ago. The guitar work is flawless. So tasteful. His Atomic Playboys album and Flamenco-a-go-go albums were great too. Aswell as his enduring Billy Idol material and the Top Gun theme.
Yeah, the Billy Idol stuff is timeless, and the Top Gun theme is one of my all time favorites, he ROCKED that song!
