exactly what sprung to my mind . PFM I think picked ths up touring with ELPSmile

and talking of ELP

And what about the late Shawn Lane? as fast as Petrucci and more tasteful IMO (incidentally he got very fat too, but in his case it was because of illness)

Not my favourite Dixie Dregs stuff but Allen Sloan and Steve Morse duel pretty fast here (and without distortion)

I bet he'd start playing prog if he was in The Big Ol' Boys Band with Rothery, Squire and Lake

To be fair to the two hippies that started the thread, this was always going to end in tiaras tears (we've already veered off into whose yer fave speed typist shredder w.a.n.k already)Ouch

For what it's worth and I guess this is pretty obscure: the astonishing accelerando during Chou Pahrot's Sylphonic Diplivits has always caused my jaw to drop in wonder

Similarly, King Crimson's ability to compress lyrical musical themes into a miniscule portion of their previously allotted space on Starless and preserve their enduring musicality is forever remarkableShocked

I sort of really like that my idea grew in minds. Although I feel sorry for Rothery :(

I've seen all of 'em live, as well as Al Dimeola, Holdsworth, etc.  They can all burn!  Frank Gambale is another one! 

You are right that John McLaughlin invented burning fretboards, check this out:

LOL

Can we switch the topic to fattest?! 


I think Rothery got pretty big at one point, but then lost a bunch about 10 years ago.
He was pretty big at one point. It got to the point where he started wearing sweats on stage. Lol

I believe you. Think you are right. ;) McLaughlin is a shredd demon.

Great call.  I remember when the Woodstock movie came out and everyone went nuts over how fast Alvin Lee could play LOL
I'm using the chicken to measure it.
