Adagio Brilliant dark, neo-classical metal in the vein of Symphony X, Majestic and Rising Force. Unmissable!
Michael Angelo One of the fastest guns in the west. Mind-blowing speed!
Phye Ansari Yaan-Zek Strange sounds indeed. John McLaughlin-meets-Marty Friedman-meets-Todd Duane-meets Buckethead anyone?
Prashant Aswani Great first CD in the Greg Howe tradition (who also produced and played on it). Well worth a listen.
Joy Basu Another great player with an earthy style in the manner of Becker and Gilbert. Check out his excellent self-titled CD.
Buckethead Who the hell is Buckethead? Discover the answer at this entertaining site.
Rusty Cooley Great technical shredder -- the perfect antidote to Clapton & Co.!
Todd Duane Monster shredder whose string-skipping sequences leave the likes of Gilbert at the starting line. Next to Shawn Lane, possibly the fastest rock player alive.

Guitar 9 Records Excellent place to purchase guitar CD's. Also features loads of great up-and-coming shredders. Highly recommended.
Allan Holdsworth If you haven't heard of him you should be ashamed!
