Need for Speed: The 50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time
GW exceeds the legal limit with this roundup of the 50 fastest masters of the fretboard.
SIGNATURE SONG: “Eternal Rest”
ALBUM: Waking the Fallen (AVENGED SEVENFOLD)
It’s easy for critics to dismiss Avenged Sevenfold because they look like a bunch of emo-punk kids who raided Axl Rose’s wardrobe, but no other band has done as much to introduce Generation Y to the shock and awe of a brilliant guitar solo.
Justin Timberlake may be bringing sexy back, but Synyster Gates brought almighty shred to the forefront with his numerous extended no-holds-barred solos on A7X’s albums.
A GIT graduate, Gates is a surprisingly versatile guitarist influenced by players ranging from Django to Dimebag.
