50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time
Guitar World exeeds the legal limit with this roundup — in alphabetical order — of the 50 fastest masters of the fretboard.
SIGNATURE SONG: “Hangar 18”
ALBUM: Rust in Peace (MEGADETH)
Marty Friedman played dueling neoclassical leads with Jason Becker
in Cacophony before going on to make thrash metal history as the lead guitarist for Megadeth on their classic albums Rust in Peace, Countdown to Extinction, Youthanasia and Risk. His shredded arpeggios, hyperactive sweep picking and winning way with exotic scales have stood him in good stead, both in his Megadeth work and his current incarnation as an American expatriate who is definitely big in Japan.
