No way...

The best is either kirk hamster of metallica or eddie van halen....


Eddie was great and he inspired a whole new generation of players but he was then surpassed by many ... Paul's live work with Racer X and Mr Big was simply amazing!

Kirk Hamster (haha, yep I called him that too) is nothing special ... On most Metallica albums he only played the leads!

Some more:
Steve Vai - excellent technique and sound: best playing was with Dave Lee Roth and Alcatrazz .. Solo stuff was wierd: some very good and some just odd!
Joe Satriani - good but often unmelodic (despite where my username comes from!)
Malmsteem - bonkers but good: playing got more sloppy after the car crash ...
Vinnie Moore - superb: the most tuneful neo-classical player.
Stanley Jordan - untouchable tapping style!

That is the most amazing blind guitar player that I have ever seen!

PS

Sorry about the other content of that web page ... I saw the link on a guitar newsgroup - concentrate on the video and the playing: do not get distracted

Steve Vai rings a bell.

The others I don't thin I've heard of.

This dude in the video is awesome!

What he's doing is unreal...

I assume he's playing upside down to show off, right???


ps; can i watch the other movies when I'm done!!

Sure ...

The other movies are for later ...

That Japanese guy is like Jeff Healey on battery acid ... Jeff Healey is another blind guitar player who plays the guitar upside down too.

It was hard enough for me to learn fast playing the right way up

that dude can play some serious guitar.

Watching for a second time is even more impressive, especially now that I realize he's blind, playing killer guitar, and upside down.

I took lessons for about 9 months a long time ago, but I learned the wrong way.  Instead of learning scales and such, I'd go in and tell the guy: "hey, translate this metallica intro for me".  It was good to learn how to palm mute and pick and play fast, but not for what I consider actually 'learning' how to play guitar.
